Recently our founder, Tricia Montgomery, was featured in an article for WebMD called “Women’s Health Tips for Heart, Mind, and Body”. We love hearing K9 Fit Club’s name in the press, read below for a sneak peak on Tricia’s take on how to maintain a healthy lifestyle while still indulging in the occasional treat, of the human variety of course.

Follow a Heart-Healthy Diet

There’s an easy recipe if your goal is to keep away problems like heart disease and strokes.

  • Eat more fruits and veggies.
  • Choose whole grains. Try brown rice instead of white. Switch to whole wheat pasta.
  • Choose lean proteins like poultry, fish, beans, and legumes.
  • Cut down on processed foods, sugar, salt, and saturated fat.

When eating healthy, flexibility often works best, says Joyce Meng, MD, assistant professor at the Pat and Jim Calhoun Cardiology Center at UConn Health. If you like to follow a strict diet plan, go for it. If not, it’s OK. “Find what works for you.”

Tricia Montgomery, 52, the founder of K9 Fit Club, knows first-hand how the right diet and lifestyle can help. For her, choosing healthy foods and planning small, frequent meals works well. “I don’t deny myself anything,” she says. “I still have dessert — key lime pie, yum! — and I love frozen gummy bears, but moderation is key.”

We also about how dog’s can encourage us to get into shape, or to shape-up. Tricia demonstrates on the radio how to work-out with your dog.  She says, what’s most important is to make sure everything is aligned properly (whatever that means).

Dog owners, she says, can easily get more exercise just because you have a dog.
