As we say goodbye to June and National Men’s Health Month, it is important to keep the guys motivated to stay healthy throughout the year. National Men’s Health Month does a great job of raising awareness around this important issue, so let’s put that awareness into action!
As a practitioner, how do you encourage your male patients to schedule regular visits? Once they are in your office, what is the most effective way to discuss their diet and overall health?
When it comes to diet, protein is an important nutrient. Research indicates that high-quality protein may help active adults build muscle strength and middle-aged and aging adults prevent muscle loss. Consuming protein following exercise is a great way to get the most benefits from exercise by encouraging muscle tissue repair and growth.
Here is an article that discusses some of the research and tips for including protein as part of a healthy diet. Perhaps starting with a healthy breakfast with a great source of protein like eggs can be a goal for every guy (and gal)!
Remember a synonym for diet is nourishment. Nourish your bodies!
