Listen up, guys! Don't leave your doctor's office without asking six questions.
Guys, it's never too late to start taking care of your health. It's also never too early. Too many men, however, fail to make health maintenance a part of their MO. Buck that trend and be proactive about your health. You'll feel better, and you'll live longer -- and that's just the beginning.
Here are six questions you should ask his doctor to be as healthy as you can be. 1. Do men always have to watch their diets?
Yes, most days. A day off once a week is fine -- that's realistic. But eating right most of the time is an essential part of taking care of yourself. No matter how much you work out, you can't maintain a healthy weight unless you stick to a healthy diet. So be sure to satisfy your appetite with good-for-you foods, and make an effort to keep an eye on calories.
Men are often surprised that even though they are exercising four days a week, they are not losing weight. Exercise is great, but if you can't tell me the number of calories you are getting, then you are not watching your diet. You have to eat three meals a day, but it's all about portion control -- that's the key. For example, many men drink beer. To burn off the 150 or so calories in one can of beer, the typical man needs to jog a mile in less than 10 minutes or do 15 minutes of stair climbing.
Confused About Calcium Supplements?
Experts share their advice about what to consider when choosing a calcium supplement.
Are you getting enough calcium in your diet? Maybe not -- especially if you're a woman or a teenage girl. Although Americans have improved their calcium intake in recent years, we're still not getting enough to maintain our bone health.
How much is that? It depends on your age. According to the Institute of Medicine, the recommended daily intake of calcium is:
1-3 years: 700 milligrams daily
4-8 years: 1,000 milligrams daily
9-18 years: 1,300 milligrams daily
19-50 years: 1,000 milligrams daily
51-70 years: 1,200 milligrams daily for women; 1,000 milligrams daily for men
Do women need to worry about heart disease?
Yes. Among all U.S. women who die each year, one in four dies of heart disease. In 2004, nearly 60 percent more women died of cardiovascular disease (both heart disease and stroke) than from all cancers combined. The older a woman gets, the more likely she is to get heart disease. But women of all ages should be concerned about heart disease. All women should take steps to prevent heart disease. Both men and women have heart attacks, but more women who have heart attacks die from them. Treatments can limit heart damage but they must be given as soon as possible after a heart attack starts. Ideally, treatment should start within one hour of the first symptoms. If you think you're having a heart attack, call 911 right away. Tell the operator your symptoms and that you think you're having a heart attack.
