Comments Off on Men’s Health Issues – Top 7 Steps For Losing Belly Fat


Speaking out about your weight issue is not the everyday conversation you’ll here down your local public house, so it’s important that men are given an arena to voice men’s health issues.

Whilst an extremely unspoken word amongst men a decade ago, fortunately the term “dieting” has found some acceptance among male circles but guys do in fact approach the whole weight loss issue much differently to women.

Whilst women choose the phrase “dieting”, for the man this implies femininity, so the term “working out” is much more preferred as it suggests something more certain and life changing.

The following 7 steps are therefore considered some of the best tools and practices for succeeding with your weight loss plan.

Step 1: Get your BMI workout out. Your Body Mass Indicator is crucial at establishing where you currently stand.

This is calculated by dividing your weight in kilo-grammes with your height in meters squared.

An ideal body mass will fall between 18.5 and 24.9.

As you get older this will change slightly but essentially this is the advised margin.

Step 2: Listen to your mates. Most guys don’t hold back so if your getting some stick then take this as an indicator that it might in fact be time to shred a few pounds.

Step 3: If the idea of a diet makes you feel uncomfortable then don’t do it. Simple as that. Instead focus on ways in which you can improve your eating habits. Dieting doesn’t have to mean eating less – just the right foods.

Step 4: Ask your partner for help. Don’t be afraid to open up. Most women will be delighted to help you eat healthier meals.

Step 5: Understand the Basics.

As a rule:

  • eat more fruit, veg and whole grains
  • cut back on salt and sugar
  • opt for low-fat dairy products
  • watch portion sizes
  • go for fresh, natural, unprocessed foods; eat fewer fried and fatty foods
  • have fish twice a week (including one serving of oily fish like salmon, mackerel or fresh tuna)
  • don’t drink more than 3-4 units of alcohol in a day

Step 6: Don’t be hoodwinked by low carbohydrate diets such as Atkins.

Vast amounts of eggs, cream, cheese, butter, red meat and fried food might seem a good idea but they are essentially artery clogging recipes for imminent health risks.

Carbohydrates are in fact one of the 3 major macro nutrients that our bodies crave so by eliminating one out of three is not wise.

Instead, opt for pasta, brown rice, wholegrain cereals, wholemeal breads which will fill you up for longer and you will inevitably live longer!

Step 7: Workout with the number 1 superfood – Acai.

Pronounced “asarhee” – Acai is by far the most complete food type available which provides the following attributes:

* A remarkable concentration of antioxidants that help combat premature aging, with 10 times more antioxidants than red grapes and 10 to 30 times the anthocyanins of red wine.

* A synergy of monounsaturated (healthy) fats, dietary fiber and phytosterols to help promote cardiovascular and digestive health to assist in increased weight loss.

* An almost perfect essential amino acid complex in conjunction with valuable trace minerals, vital to proper muscle contraction and regeneration.
