Heather relies on the perks of caffeine. What is her coffee order? "A fabulous cappuccino," she told Vegas Magazine. According to the Cleveland Clinic, there are several benefits of drinking coffee in moderation. "It acts on your brain to improve memory, mood, reaction times, and mental function," they say, citing a study finding that caffeine can improve endurance and performance during exercise. It is also antioxidant-rich, can ward off diabetes, prevent neurologic disease, lower cancer risk, and ward off depression, they point out.


Walking Her Dog

When asked about her go-to workout by Vegas Magazine, Heather responded. "90 minutes of stand-up comedy!" While moving around the stage is definitely a workout, Heather also goes for walks with her dog. Going for a daily walk can be a game changer in terms of exercise, especially at a brisk speed. One study published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that walking at a brisk pace for about 30 minutes a day led to a reduced risk of heart disease, cancer, dementia and death, compared with walking a similar number of steps but at a slower pace.


Red Wine

If Heather was stuck on a desert island she would bring three things: "Wine, a wine opener and acid reflux pills," she joked. In all seriousness, she is a big fan of red wine. "Red wine, in moderation, has long been thought of as heart healthy," says the Mayo Clinic. "The alcohol and certain substances in red wine called antioxidants may help prevent coronary artery disease, the condition that leads to heart attacks."



Heather also enjoys golfing. A comprehensive review published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine found that golf's health benefits are extensive, including mind, body, and even lifespan. Benefits include improved longevity, decreased risk of developing heart disease or suffering a stroke, good mental health, and improved strength and balance.


Her Favorite Foods

Heather revealed a few of her favorite foods to Vegas Magazine. She starts the morning with "a flaky chocolate croissant." Her "last meal on earth" would be a "seafood tower, wedge salad, all the potato sides, and a filet!" while her go-to dinner is sushi. Her guilty pleasure? Chocolate chip cookies. And one thing you won't find her eating? American cheese.
