Important steps you need to take to stay young and healthy:
Be physically active and make healthy food choices. Food is more than just fuel. Your diet can help fight disease and keep you looking and acting younger. How a man eats throughout his life can help predict how well (or not) he ages.
Get to a healthy weight and stay there. Balance the calories you take in from food and drink with the calories you burn off by your activities.
More than women, men gain weight around the middle; that’s due to the male hormone testosterone. If your waist measures more than 40 inches around, it’s time to shed some pounds. This fat around the waist is typically buried deep in the abdomen and increases your risk for diabetes, heart disease and dementia.
If you drink alcohol, have no more than two drinks per day if you are 65 or younger. If you are older than 65, have no more than one drink a day. A standard drink is one 12-ounce bottle of beer or wine cooler, one 5-ounce glass of wine, or 1.5 ounces of 80-proof distilled spirits.
Your health should be your priority, at Nutriway, our registered dietitians can help you achieve better health by personalizing a healthy lifestyle plan, that will give you lasting results.
