You can regularly find Yandy dancing in her social media videos. Dancing is a great workout for many reasons. Not only does it build strength and promote flexibility, but helps you lose weight and even promotes cardiovascular function. A 2016 study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine determined that people who engaged in moderate-intensity dancing were 46 percent less likely to develop heart disease or die from it than non-dancers. In comparison, moderate-intensity walkers were just 25 percent less likely to suffer heart health issues.


She Runs

Yandy also runs. Here she is getting her sweat on while running on a treadmill. According to the Mayo Clinic, running is great for cardiovascular health, muscle building, and weight loss. "For every mile run, the average person will burn approximately 100 calories," they say.

Yandy swears by cleanses, revealing on The Breakfast Club that she regularly does 7, 14, and 30 days cleanses. While she loves seafood and steak, she believes that cleansing is crucial. "I understand my body and I understand just really wanting to cleanse and all of that stuff," she said, adding that after a 30-day cleanse she will continue incorporating detox meals into her lifestyle.


She Talks About Her Problems

Yandy added that having "conversations" about mental health is essential and "helped refocus my thinking," she said about working with a therapist. "I had clarity and she helped me with prayer and all of that stuff. And honestly to detox you need a little bit of praying and we're used to eat the way I eat. She added that the pandemic took a toll, and "a lot of us are still suffering from not just health-wise, but mentally what that did to us, being isolated and being alone and losing relationships."
