Cereal For Breakfast
Montaner enjoys cereal for breakfast. "I definitely think that, done right, cereal can be part of a healthy diet," says Amanda Beaver, wellness dietitian at Houston Methodist. "Whole grain cereals are often fiber-rich and fortified with important vitamins and minerals," Beaver explains. "This can be beneficial for people who struggle to meet their iron and fiber needs from the other foods they typically eat."
Montaner loves swimming in the ocean. "Every time I go for a swim I feel like the earth and my incredible swim colleagues have enabled me to have experienced something pretty amazing," says Dr Jenny Martin, a physician and clinical pharmacologist at the University of Newcastle. "You get a release of hormones that make you feel good, like the molecules that are in morphine drugs, and other feel-good hormones like serotonin, dopamine. After an ocean swim in winter, you sometimes get a temporary natural high when you get out … definitely a euphoric feeling."
Argan Oil For Hair
Montaner uses argan oil to help keep her beautiful hair healthy. "The fatty acids in it, like linoleic and oleic acids, are very hydrating," says dermatologist Shilpi Khetarpal, MD. "It adds lighter moisture that won't weigh hair down, while also promoting your hair's overall health. The oils add a protective layer to the hair and help strengthen hair that's been damaged by too much heat or chemicals."
Walking Her Dog
Montaner is devoted to her dog and loves spending time with the pup. "Walking can help protect you during cold and flu season," says Harvard Health. "A study of over 1,000 men and women found that those who walked at least 20 minutes a day, at least 5 days a week, had 43% fewer sick days than those who exercised once a week or less. And if they did get sick, it was for a shorter duration, and their symptoms were milder."
Montaner enjoys group workouts using resistance bands. "Bands naturally prevent you from cheating on the exercise, which is common when using free weights, especially among beginners," says Hayden Steele, NSCA-C.P.T., C.S.C.S. "Cheating involves the use of momentum to get the weight moving. Once that momentum has been built up, the muscle fibers no longer need to be maximally activated to continue moving the weight through the rest of the range of motion. In other words, momentum is doing most of the work, not the muscles."
