What Should Women be Doing
- #1 NO FAD DIETING or low calorie. These kinds of diet make your body go into starvation mode harming us for years to come. This will make it hard for us to lose weight later on in our 40s and 50s. Don't restrict ourselves of any nutrient. Plenty of fats and moderate amounts amount of protein, and very little carbs because you will be getting those from vegetables. The most nutrient dense foods are whole foods. 

-Staying Active

-Stress management. 

Stress Management Tips:
-Take a few deep breaths before eating when you are feeling stressed. Helps promote better digestion and simply letting your body know you are ok, avoiding your body going into flight mode when you are digesting food. Inhale and hold your breath for a couple seconds and let it out slowly.
-Massages
-Detox Baths
-Essential Oils

Anything can be a de-stressor as long as your body is relaxed. 

Supplementation:

-Vitamin D good quality with K so it's easily absorbed
-Fish Oil. If you like fish, consider eating fish 3 times a week instead of taking a supplement for it. 
-Probiotic
