by Lori Sciame September 1st, 2014 | Health Observance, Men's Health
The cliche, turning over a new leaf, connects beautifully with autumn.  As the gold, orange, and red leaves fall from the trees, one can choose to think about the tiny buds that will take their place next spring instead.  It may sound counter-intuitive, but I propose that we should think of fall as a time for beginning again, and not as a time to curl up into a ball for hibernation.

by Lori Sciame October 2nd, 2013 | Health Observance, Men's Health

The male hormone, testosterone, plays a big role in weight loss and muscle building; hence, a diet and exercise plan that enhances testosterone is a man’s key to getting and staying fit. The Testosterone Advantage Plan encourages men to eat lots of protein and to weightlift to lose pounds and to build muscle mass.

The men’s health “T” (as in “testosterone”) means forgetting the traditional USDA food pyramid in favor of a diet that’s 33% carbohydrates, 33% protein, and 33% fat. Every day, men should eat 2 grams (.07 oz.) of protein for every 2.2 pounds of body weight –

Healthy Heart Rx: Afternoon Nap

by R. Carnavale June 12th, 2012 | Health Observance, Men's Health
Heart disease kills more than 650,000 Americans each year and is the nation's number 1 cause of death. But did you know that an afternoon siesta can substantially reduce your risk of having a death due to heart disease? A six-year study of 23,681 healthy male and female volunteers in Greece reveals that people who take a midday nap have a 37-percent lower risk of dying from heart disease than people who don’t. Even more startling: results from the study indicate that working men who nap have a 64-percent reduced risk of death when compared to their non-napping cohorts.
