Guys, it’s Men’s Health Month. Southern Recipe has a few tips and suggestions to help you improve your health…and get your family off your back.
The average life expectancy for men is 76.4 years. Heart disease is the number one killer of men, followed by cancer and respiratory disease. Lung and bronchial cancer is the number two cause of death in men, followed by Prostate Cancer. Enough of the doom and gloom, Southern Recipe wants to help with a few tips and suggestions.
- Cut it out– High blood pressure, high LDL cholesterol, and smoking are key risk factors for heart disease in men. Get a yearly physical examination and know your numbers. Men around 50 years of age should be screened for prostate cancer once a year. Hey, everyone can do something once a year, why not this?
- Food doesn’t have to be in a pyramid– Excessive alcohol use, physical inactivity, and poor diet contribute to a decline in men’s stamina. Meanwhile, daily exercise, food moderation, and proper nutrition are essential for continued heath. Make high fiber, lower calorie and better for you food choices…and make them taste good.
- Choose your snacks wisely– Pork rinds are a healthier way to add crunch and flavor to your favorite bites. A serving of pork rinds has 0 grams of carbs, 9 grams of protein and only 5 grams of fat. Now you know what a pork rind is and the healthy side of this crunchy snack.
Guys, regular check ups along with moderation and healthy snacking will keep your ticker ticking. Southern Recipe will help you stay healthy, in a real man’s kind of way.
