Men tend to keep a health problem to themselves until it becomes
a medical crisis. They grow up knowing very little solid information
about their bodies except in the context of sexual function or
performance. This area of our web site is an attempt to inform men
of basic bodily necessities to maintain a healthy body and life.

your body to renew health and energy
A man must be strong physically during workouts and sports, supportive emotionally
in relationships, balanced under stress, mentally creative and quick, and sexually keen
and virile. Diet and exercise are the main pillars supporting a man's health and energy.
Both are woefully deficient in the modern American man's life. Poor farming methods
that use pesticides and other chemicals, processed foods, and bad eating habits have
made us one of the planet's most nutritionally deficient nations.
regular exercise is a nutrient in itself for the male system
Lack of exercise for a man is as
great a health risk as high blood pressure, high
cholesterol, or even smoking. Heart muscle and tone can be lost if weekly exercise
is not included as a regular part of life. To maintain a healthy level of fitness, a man
should exercise at least three times a week for 20 to 30 minutes each time.
His chosen exercise should raise his heart rate at least 65 to 70% of its capacity -
to the point of breathlessness for 5 minutes each time. A fit, exercised body requires
vigorous concentrations of metabolic precursors, such as vitamin, minerals and enzymes
for strength and efficiency. Enhanced nutrition can improve strength, endurance and
muscle tissue, and help to maintain low body fat.
diet for male metabolism
An optimum diet for male
metabolism requires adequate quantity of food , but not high fats.
A man needs more fiber, protein and complex carbohydrates than a woman. His diet should
include animal proteins in moderation, like occasional eggs, chicken, turkey, low-fat dairy products,
and sea foods. A diet high in amino acid rich foods provides easily convertible proteins. Zinc-rich
foods encourage prostate and reproductive system health. Men also seem to thrive on more raw
foods for the stability of denser, more solid nutrients. Those in whole grains, beans, rice, and soy
products offer prolonged endurance and increased sensitivity.
