Men's Health

 

Gut crunches? Check. Push-ups? Check. Free-weights? Got it. So why is your doctor still shaking his or her head at your physical exam results? You eat salads. You have a piece of fruit. You're drinking water at the gym. Maybe it's not anything that you're doing wrong...

The body is a temple, but try telling that to your local grocery store when you're ready to shop. Try finding healthy fares during your lunch hour and you may find that the reason the doctor is shaking their head at you is not your fault, but what the stores are selling you. You could be on a budget and everything in your budget that's "cheap" is loaded with sugar and salt. Or, you could spend what you want on food, but you have so much stress that your hair is falling out and you're not able to "function" the way you want. Yeah, it's not you, it's definitely them...

The top 3 causes of death for men are motor vehicle accidents, heart disease, and your wife's credit card bill? Nope. The last one is suicide. Men, when they are under too much stress, implode, and that's why it's important to cover all aspects that men are facing as it relates to their health: mental, physical, and emotional well-being.

In our 3-month Health Expo, we're exploring Healthy Eating, Cross Training Fitness, Work/Life Balance, From Hair to Eternity: Men's Health Topics, Spirituality, Relationships, and Stress-Less. These are 7 core areas that men may struggle with from time-to-time and by balancing them with small changes and a few new ideas, you can get back on track. 

So let's begin... Oh, we're doing this! 

 

 

Healthy Eating

 

 

 

Okay, we get it. Your friends were treating to lunch. You went to that restaurant with the big menu and ordered a sensible meal, salad, apps, drinks, dessert, and then the entree! Your blood sugar spiked and so did your blood pressure. Then your colon started doing flips and you were in the bathroom for 6-hours with a can of Febreze and a half dead smartphone battery. Should you call 911 now or try to get in an episode of Master Chef?

What happened? It was probably hidden salt and sugar and the ingredients may not have been appropriate for your body. But wait, there's more...

You get to work and the stress is through the roof. All your bosses are screaming, "Well, find a way!" "I wanted it yesterday!" "Get 'er done!" And that's when the migraine starts and that weird vein in your neck starts pulsating. Maybe you should go home early?
