    Girlfriends can support your efforts, work out with you and call your attention to matters you may be ignoring. Here are some tips to help you and your girlfriends stay healthy and safe.
    • Be active and eat healthy. Make healthy choices when you get together with your friends.
    • Get regular exams and screenings. Friends can encourage each other to get their regular health exams and screenings, which can help find problems early, and help to identify which ones to focus your attention for better health.
    • Share tips with your friends on everything from  having a healthy pregnancy to preventing sexually transmitted infections.
    • Give up drugs, alcohol and tobacco. Friends can be important sources of support if you trying to give up smoking or drinking. Resources are also available for people who are trying to quit or cut down on drinking or give up smoking.
    • Prescription drug overdoses are a growing epidemic among women. You and your girlfriends share a lot of things; medications shouldn’t be one of them.

    Make healthy choices when you get together with your friends. Find fun ways to get physical activity like walking, dancing, gardening, or swimming. When eating out or cooking at home, be sure to include fruits and vegetables and other foods rich in vitamins and minerals. Avoid foods and beverages high in calories, saturated fat or added sugars and salt.
    • Be active for at least two and a half hours a week. Children and teens need at least one hour of activity daily.
    • Exercise with friends and get the many benefits of regular physical activity.
    • Maintain a healthy weight. Avoid portion size pitfalls. Split an entrée with a friend.

    You could start with the FDA’s website for food recommendations, http://www.fda.gov/Food/default.htm

    Food recommendations may also depend on the medical conditions that you have. Many of the national organizations for specific medical conditions will have food recommendations. Below are just a few of them: 

    • American Heart Association: http://www.americanheart.org/presenter.jhtml?identifier=1200010
    • American Diabetes Association: http://www.diabetes.org/food-nutrition-lifestyle/nutrition.jsp
    • Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America: http://www.ccfa.org/info/diet
