Diet & Workout Programs for Women

While hormone therapy is an important part of your anti-aging plan, good nutrition and exercise are valuable to your overall health as well. Women who exercise regularly and watch what they eat can reduce the effects of aging, look better, and feel young and fit. And they may lose some weight, too, which improves their overall health while reducing their risk of developing some diseases.

Fitness

Even if you’ve never exercised much, it’s not too late to start! Adults need 150 minutes of moderate aerobic exercise a week, which is only 22 minutes a day. Ready to get started?

  • Improve cardiovascular function

  • Raise your metabolism
