Both men and women are susceptible to different aches, pains, and sickness. Unfortunately statistics show that men are less likely to visit the doctor than women. Men are more prone not to take different ailments seriously until things are worse. If you’re a man and you’re saying, “Nope, that’s not me.” Then let’s take a look at this top health tips men should know and see if you can take the challenge to do these.
Remove trans fats from your diet.
Can you take the challenge? Trans fats are found in deep-fried foods and other foods made with hydrogenated oils. Some of the most common would include deep-fried fries, chicken wings, and pork ribs. Other foods that have trans fat are those that have peanut butter, margarine, and shortening in them. Buying pastries and cookies from stores would almost be certain to have trans fat. Best you stick with foods that are made from or cooked with healthy oils like olive oil and argan oil. These oils unlike trans fats will not raise your risk of heart disease. Argan oil specifically is rich in essential fatty acids, vitamin E, and antioxidants that are good for the heart and whole body. This oil has anti-aging properties that can help with your health and your looks. Argan oil is good for your health, your skin, your hair, and even your nails.
Have a healthy weight.
Men are less conscious about their weight and more and more men are losing the battle against the bulge. You must remember that maintaining a healthy weight will do your body a lot of good. With a healthy weight you will reduce the risk of various health problems like hypertension, high cholesterol levels, heart disease, and diabetes. Not only will you lessen your risks but you will also feel and look better.
Stay away from “white food”.
White food such as breads, sugar-filled sodas, and unhealthy snacks are full of flour and sugar. These foods are terrible for your sugar levels and when sugar levels are high then you better be prepared for a long list of possible problems. Some of the sicknesses you’ll be prone to are diabetes and obesity. Go with fiber rich foods instead of sugar and white flour rich goods.
Have alcohol in moderation.
Night outs and drinking sessions with the guys are sure a lot of fun. But drinking excessively does harm to your health that it should take out some fun in drinking. It is advisable then to drink occasionally and always in moderation for better health. Moderation is most definitely the key. Hard as it may seem, control your drinking and have better health in the future.
Women are said to have a 7 year survival advantage on men. Why could that be? Maybe it is because men are less conscious about their health then women. What men should realize is that healthy eating and drinking are done not just to have a good physique but more important to have a good and balanced health.
