Knowing that one of four women die of heart disease in the United States and one woman dies every minute from a cardiovascular event, Fit Minded views the American Heart Association as a valuable resource for women of all ages. This website provides information on risk factors, healthy recipes, tips, and much more for women and their families.
United States Department of Agriculture
Everyone knows how difficult it is to prepare healthy meals, let alone to know what nutrients are provided in every meal. MyPyramid can help you personalize a nutrition plan to your or your families’ tastes and health needs. This interactive website helps you plan and assess your food choices based on the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
We want you, as a member of Fit Minded, to learn about how to prioritize your health through nutrition, as well as physical activity. This website is a great resource and has several options to help you, no matter your dietary goals.

We recommend utilizing this website for information and tips that will keep you active and healthy.
Sometimes it can be difficult to determine if the exercise recommendations you see in the media are sound, or even safe. These popular magazines, however, offer many tools that can help you achieve your goals. Not only do they provide a variety of exercise, diet information and maintenance strategies, they also focus on how valuable you are as a woman. Fit Minded wants to help you break through your barriers to being physically active. These fitness magazines are fun tools to assist you in maintaining your physical activity.

Prevention Magazine delivers breaking news and energizing lifestyle advice to empower your mind, body, and soul. It’s “real-woman” friendly and includes tools to help you feel good about who you are and what you can accomplish.
