It’s a new day! 50 is the new 30, and 80 the new 50. Men live longer, and the steps they take earlier in life can lead to better health and enjoyment of life as they age.
Getting Old Is Rough on a Man’s Body
Men are more likely to have obesity, hypertension, high cholesterol, heart attacks, strokes, and diabetes.
No surprise, then, that the supplement business is booming. Pills to “prevent aging in every cell in the body,” “prevent dementia” and especially prevent the dreaded “ED” (erectile dysfunction or the inability to have sex) are advertised online, in newspapers and person. Most of these questionable cures cost at least $69.99 a month.
And yet, no studies are proving the benefits of these expensive treatments.
The good news is that the most potent “anti-aging” treatment is also the cheapest!
You Can Change Your Life & Overall Level of Health for $0
Number one: a healthy diet. Mostly vegetables, fruits, fish, whole grains with limited meats, fats, and processed food.
Number two: exercise. Just 30 minutes a day can change your life. Not an athlete? Just take a brisk walk. You’ll see profound changes if you keep to it for a month or two: increased energy, better sleep, improved muscle tone, and mood.
OK, maybe diet and exercise don’t seem like news. Perhaps this solution doesn’t sound sexy.
But what if I told you that diet and exercise ARE sexy? Keeping your weight within a healthy range and exercising regularly will improve your sex life. I have seen it again and again in my decades as a physician.
Why, if exercise were a pill, it would be more expensive than Viagra!
