Giudice loves seafood, especially sushi and shellfish such as crab and lobster (which are an excellent source of zinc). "Women of reproductive age are most likely moderately zinc-deficient due to menstruation and not eating the right foods," says Shannon L. Kelleher, PhD. "Symptoms of too little zinc include dry and itchy skin, loss of hair, reduced ability to taste food and a compromised immune system that leads to more colds."

Pizza, Please

Giudice will never turn down a slice of pizza, but experts say it can absolutely be a healthy choice. "The No. 1 best way to boost the nutritional value of your pizza is by cutting out processed meats, which are high in calories and unhealthy fats," says Julia Zumpano, RD, LD. "Most pizza shops offer a variety of choices for crusts and toppings that can help keep your pizza healthy and still delicious," says Fawziah Saleh, RDN, LD. "Don't be afraid to ask!"

Giudice loves to hike, especially when she's traveling to beautiful spots such as Malibu, Los Angeles. "Research shows that hiking has a positive impact on combating the symptoms of stress and anxiety," says Gregory A. Miller, PhD, president of the American Hiking Society. "Being in nature is ingrained in our DNA, and we sometimes forget that."

Yoga Sessions

Giudice enjoys yoga sessions with mom Teresa Giudice. "One of the wonderful things about yoga is accepting yourself and your body just as you are today," says Dr. Corinna Keenmon, Houston Methodist's medical director of psychiatry and telepsychiatry. "This is the mindfulness aspect of yoga — simply appreciating your body for the things that it can do right now in the present moment."

Family Dinners

Giudice enjoys regular family dinners with her mother and sisters. "There have been more than 20 years of dozens of studies that document that family dinners are great for the body, the physical health, the brains and academic performance, and the spirit or the mental health, and in terms of nutrition, cardiovascular health is better in teens," says family therapist Anne Fishel.""There's lower fat and sugar and salt in home cooked meals even if you don't try that hard, there's more fruit, and fiber, and vegetables, and protein in home cooked meals, and lower calories. Kids who grow up having family dinners, when they're on their own tend to eat more healthily and to have lower rates of obesity."
