Most people have no idea how good their body is designed to feel..
Men are notorious for avoiding the doctor and ignoring unusual symptoms. This explains why women tend to live longer. Tracking metrics like bloodwork, triglycerides, cholesterol, and glucose levels should be done annually.
Is it really unhealthy if it makes you so happy?
Eat natural wholefoods. Packaged and processed foods are often full of sugar, salt, unhealthy fats, artificial additives, calorie-dense and nutrient-sparse. Focus on fresh fruits and veggies, wholegrains, fibrous leafy greens & fresh meats.
My recliner and I go way back
Get moving and exercise. Regular exercise is one of the best ways to prevent heart disease and keep your ticker strong. Aim for low and high intensity cardio plus strength training sessions. Break unhealthy habits like smoking and excessive alcohol. Supplement with vitamins based on activity and age. Meals can’t cover everything.
The mind influences the body, where maladies originate
Heart disease is the leading cause for death in men. Blood-pressure, hypertension and insulin-resistance are key indicators. Colorectal issues come in second. Colonoscopies are recommended over 50. Prostate enlargement is becoming common. Urination issues or bloody urine are signs of prostate problems. Get checked annually after 45. Lastly, less than half of men who report poor mental health, seek treatment. Reach out, gents.
Consistency is king
Maintaining a good healthspan is manageable via diet, exercise & lifestyle behaviours.
