Health and Fitness Tips for Da Fellas

Health and Fitness Tips for Da Fellas

Like women, men do their fair share of juggling demanding jobs with social and family obligations, which makes it difficult for both sexes to live a healthy lifestyle. But Health News offers these simple, man-friendly tips to help out .

Don’t skip the most important meal of the day. Start your day with breakfast to regulate your metabolism, weight and cravings.

No pain no gain. Don’t nurse your exercise pain. Resting can weaken your muscles and cause you to lose strength over time.

Snack during the day.  Munch on a handful of nuts to benefit from their supply of omega-3 fatty acids, which is considered good fat.
Sweat! It’s good for you. Cardio workouts help reduce blood pressure and rid your body of toxins.

Talk more, stress less. Share what’s on your mind—it’ll help keep stress away. And it just might save your life.
Floss for your health. Floss to rid your mouth of bacteria that brushing might miss.
Get a good night’s sleep. For the best rest, hop into bed at a set time. It’s proved that regular sleep can reduce stress and control calories.

Read how healthy habits can improve your life here.

Obesity and Mental Health

Obesity and Mental Health

Though obesity has long been linked to a number of physical health problems, a new study suggests that overweight adults may also have a higher risk of psychiatric disorders.

Researchers at the University of Connecticut Health Center examined data on more than 40,000 Americans and found that obese adults were up to two times more likely than those of normal weight to suffer from depression, anxiety and other mental health conditions.

The researchers say that more research needs to be done to establish the causes for the links. However, they add that overeating to cope with stress could be a factor.

Overeaters Anonymous provides physical, emotional and spiritual support for individuals who compulsively overeat. To learn more, click here .

Want to Be Slim and Fit? Just Cutting Calories Won’t Do It

Want to Be Slim and Fit? Just Cutting Calories Won’t Do It

Diet and exercise do more than just slim your figure. The dynamic duo also offers additional health benefits, such as lowered blood pressure and cholesterol levels, according to a study published in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise, reported by HealthDay News .

For the study, University of Wyoming researchers divided 36 overweight men and women (average age 39) into three groups. Group one reduced calories by 25 percent; group two cut calories by about 12.5 percent and exercised to boost energy output; and group three remained on a weight-maintenance diet.

At the end of the study, groups one and two lost about 10 percent of their body weight (an average of 17 pounds).  

But researchers found that weight loss wasn’t the only health benefit realized. Group two participants, who dieted and exercised, also had improved blood pressure and cholesterol levels in addition to better insulin sensitivity.

“It’s not surprising at all,” said Enette Larson-Meyer, MD, study author and an assistant professor of family and consumer science at the University of Wyoming. “They definitely work together.”

“I think it finally proves what we have been saying for a long time,” said Walt Thompson, PhD, a professor of kinesiology at Georgia State University. “Effective weight-loss programs have to include diet and exercise.&#...
