While women are usually more aware of the importance of healthy lifestyle choices, men tend to neglect their health until they get obvious symptoms to indicate a problem. Fortunately, there are many great, efficient changes that gentlemen can implement into their lifestyle to improve their health regardless of their age – here are some:
- Get a comprehensive medical check-up – going to the doctor is a stressful thing, but having a general check-up is very important before implementing any lifestyle changes, getting procedures like prostatic artery embolization can be a life changer as well;
- Regular exercise – depending on your overall level of fitness, you can start small, with just a brisk walk around the block in the evenings, or you can start with more intensive exercise, such as jogging or biking;
- Diet changes – if your current diet is not the healthiest, you can start implementing small changes, one step at a time. Try to limit your intake of fat and carbs, replace pork and other varieties of red meat, with healthier choices, such as poultry or fish and try to replace alcoholic beverages and soda products with water. Even your life is hectic, try to stick to a 5-meals-per-day plan, never skipping any of the three main courses and two snacks. All meals should be high in proteins and fibers and low in sugar and fat.
