Mens Health Can Be Cared For On A Daily Basis
By Eddie Smyths for exercise-and-health.com
The subject of mens health can seem less complicated than womens health. We all hear about starting a lifetime fitness program and exercising to reach our target heart rate, but life becomes busy and time for such healthy activities seems nonexistent. There are a number of ways men can assist in changing their health and lifestyle for the better with a few healthy tips.
If your weight and diet is of concern, consider what you’re eating to improve your health. When you only have time for the fast food drive-thru, order a grilled chicken sandwich instead of a loaded burger. It is healthy for your diet because it contains less fat and considerably fewer calories.
Before you exercise or leave for work, change the milk in your cereal to skimmed milk. By changing to low fat milk, you can save up to 300 calories per day. That amounts to over 3500 (which adds up to 1 pound of body fat!) calories you would have consumed over the next two weeks. It is a healthy change for an already healthy part of your diet.
Most men love to enjoy a big breakfast and they can continue to because it can be healthy! If you eat a large breakfast you should be less hungry as lunchtime approaches. You shouldn’t have the urge to snack as much and the extra calories not consumed could add up to weight loss.
All men need to have a good night sleep. While you sleep, the body repairs itself and releases the male hormone testosterone. The increase in this hormone should assist in muscle maintenance and can lessen the chance of loosing muscle mass.
Exercise was bound to be a part of any health changes. But instead of going out and buying expensive exercise equipment, consider changing certain activities in your daily life. Park further away from the store than you normally would and exercise your legs. Wash your car for an all-over workout. Have more sex and enjoy the benefits that can be the equivalent of a 60-minute walk.
Men should see their physician regularly to discuss diet, exercise and promoting a healthy lifestyle. While you might not experience immediate changes, you will enjoy the benefits over a period of time and enjoy your health to the fullest.
