Men and Aging: Deal With It

The saying goes, that the only sure thing is death and taxes. The item that fits in with those two things is AGING. In this case, MEN and aging.

  1. Health. This is not only getting a physical, but a Male Hormone Panel. Women have been WAY ahead in this ballgame. Check for optimal levels and find a physician that treats the patient and not the numbers. This may take several tries. Don’t give up.
  2. Get Un Fat. You have total control over what you put in your mouth. The worst thing that can happen is a decent physical examination while you are overweight. It doesn’t give you an incentive like illness. Your ego can largely manage weight gain with large, loose, shirts and talking about what your lifting records were ten years ago. The extra weight will catch up. Maybe you have resistant genes that process the poundage well, but your feet, knees, hips and back will tell you a different story. As my friend, who is former USMC, SWAT and Corrections Officer said, “If you can’t push yourself away from the plate, check yourself out of the gene pool, you are not fit to breed.” Reducing calories and eating real food is the only solution. Avoid extremes. They are usually not sustainable as a lifestyle.
