She Does Cardio

Melissa does a lot of cardio. Here she is on a treadmill, which is seriously inclined to maximize burn. Going for a daily walk – either outside or on a treadmill – 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


She Drinks Coffee

Melissa loves drinking coffee. Science continues to prove that drinking coffee is great for your health. In fact, a new 2022 study published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology found that drinking two to three cups a day of most types of coffee – especially a mild to moderate intake of ground, instant, and decaffeinated coffee – may protect you from cardiovascular disease and an early death.


She Works Out to Eat More

Melissa exercises so she can eat more. "I'm going to the gym in the morning because I like to eat donuts, because I love custard. So I'm not going to lose them and I have to go to the gym because if not the compensation law, where would I be," she revealed in an Instagram post. 


She Is Disciplined


Melissa focuses on staying disciplined – with everything from work to diet and fitness. "Discipline is doing what I have to do, even if I don't feel like it (…) Being disciplined will help you more than being encouraged," she said in an Instagram post. 


She Swims

Melissa also loves swimming in the pool and in the ocean. Swimming is a good way to get regular aerobic physical activity, according to the CDC. Just two and a half hours per week of aerobic physical activity, such as swimming, bicycling, or running, can decrease the risk of chronic illnesses. In addition to the many physical benefits, there are multiple studies supporting the mental health benefits of swimming as well.
