TOP 4 TIPS TO KEEP YOUR TWINS HEALTHY & BEAUTIFUL
1| LIMIT ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION
A glass of wine once in a while is okay, but consuming too much can elevate your risk. Reason being is due to the effect that alcohol has on the body. As we women metabolize alcohol, it can at times alter and increase our blood estrogen levels. It can also damage some of our DNA cells in the body. An increase in estrogen along with damaged DNA cells increases your risk factor to develop the disease. Make the smarter choice, and just have one.
2| SWEAT, GET ACTIVE, LAUGH & HAVE FUN
Start moving more and get the heart pumping. Increasing your physical activity throughout the week at least a minimum of 30 minutes a day can greatly reduce the risk of developing breast cancer. It is best to incorporate at least two days of cardiovascular exercise and three for strength training. Not only does this help prevent the disease, but you begin to have more energy, look better and overall feel better. There are tons of ways to get active within the community or in the convenience of your home. Wake up and do 10 jumping jacks, 10 push ups, 10 squats and 10 crunches every day to start. Then gradually increase every week. Choose an activity, make it a priority and be full committed. You owe it to yourself and your health!
3| GO GREEN!
Aside from exercise, proper nutrition is vital to your overall health and prevention of multiple health risks. Specifically eating a diet rich in bright plan-based foods, such as fruit, vegetables, legumes, whole grains and healthy fats such as nuts, avocado and extra-virgin olive oil greatly reduce the risk of breast cancer, cancer, diabetes and heart disease. Switching to make the healthier choice can even help reverse some of these diseases. Next time it comes to the temptation debate. Choose your health. ** Get Your 90-Day Nutrition Guide **
