In our 20’s and 30’s there are so many new beginnings. We’re balancing careers and family. Times of changes happen in our 40’s and 50’s with hormones and health. And in our mid 50’s and beyond, it’s a time to live well.
Diet, genetics, activity and stress levels will determine our ultimate health. As women, we need to eat a healthy diet, maintain a healthy weight, be active, manage stress and supplement wisely.
Step one: Our Diet
Eat a variety of fruits and veggies
Eat plenty of whole grains
Add in vegetarian protein choices
Eat healthy fats and avoid trans fats
Cut back on fast food or eliminate it
And read labels
Avoid fad diets – your brain functions on sugars and fats
If you have a gluten sensitivity or allergies, you may actually have Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Try improving your digestive system with probiotics and fiber.
Step two: Healthy Weight
Know your BMI. Many health problems such as back pain, arthritis and hypertension can be eliminated when you are at a healthy weight.
Exercise has many benefits. With 30 – 45 minutes a day, you can manage stress, reduce risk of disease, achieve and maintain a healthy weight, reduce depression, anxiety, and promote psychological well being. You’ll build and maintain healthy bones, muscles and joints, as well as, promote flexibility and balance.
Supplement wisely! It’s impossible to get all nutrition from food. A multivitamin and protein should be your core foundation. Shaklee 180 has a wonderful program to get you started. It includes Vitalizer, which is the core foundation with real research and proof of benefits. It gives you the right nutrients and absorption, to the right place, at the right time. Soy protein is important because it helps lower the risk of breast cancer and other cancers. Survivors who take soy protein have a lower rate of recurrence.
