Taming the Beast
We all love to eat. It makes us feel comfortable. From the favorite meal we use to eat as children, to the memories we make now with new additions to the family at Thanksgiving dinner. Eating is a part of life.
Not only do you have to eat to live, but it can also be addicting. Many men are overweight. More than 2 in 3 adults are considered to be overweight or struggle with obesity. Being overweight or struggling with obesity means that a person whose weight is higher than what is considered as a normal weight adjusted for height is described as being overweight or struggling with obesity. Many men over 25, come down from their highs. They no longer play college football or workout every morning as they get older and their metabolism slows, life catches up with them. This leaves them with weight to lose and insecurities to gain. Ways to lose weight are eating right, working out more, and practice a healthy lifestyle.
To lose weight you have to eat right.
You should eat something from all the food groups every day. Knowing what to eat and what not eat and identifying when you are overeating will help you to lose weight the right way. Many men eat 3 meals a day thanks to their wife, but sometimes it’s just so good they don’t know when to stop. As well as later on that night, while catching up on their shows and finding an interesting movie, they eat again. Overeating can turn a healthy meal to an unhealthy binge of food. Binge eating is the consumption of large quantities of food in a short period of time, typically as part of an eating disorder but sometimes can happen out of boredom or depression. We binge many things, TV show series, gaming session, and even eating.
Eating right also consist of eating in general, those who believe that if you don’t eat you will lose weight. Which in many ways can be true if you don’t eat and provide the nutrients that your body needs you will indeed lose weight but you will slowly feel as you do that your body will not function properly and eventually shut down. The process of wanting to lose weight by not eating is called Anorexia. An emotional disorder involving distortion of body image and an obsessive desire to lose weight, in which bouts of extreme overeating are followed by depression and self-induced vomiting, purging, or fasting, is called Bulimia. Neither being Anorexic, Bulimic, or Binging are healthy ways to lose weight.
Secondly, for men over the age of 25 to lose weight you have to work out more.
Exercising is key. Finding something that fits the tone of your body you want to achieve is key. Every workout plan is specific for a single person, so you are going to have to find something that fits you. Many hear the word workout and believe it is the end of the world. Working out can be fun. Incorporating time with friends and family to things like hike and take a walk around some of your favorite places are just a few ways to get the same benefit as the much dreaded workout, known as walking but in a more fun and exciting way. Instead of squatting in a gym go work out with your son and his basketball. Teach him drills and get your daily dose of work out in as well.
Lastly, for men over 25 especially you have to practice a healthy lifestyle.
A less stressed lifestyle. Maintaining this is by finding ways to relax, incorporating “you” time into your busy family life, and as well as learning that everything isn’t worth giving away your eternal peace of mind. Bills and medical expenses can sometimes be a lot, worrying about family members and completing deadlines at work are all reasonable things on the brain. However, practicing things like leaving work at work and controlling yourself around controllable stressful situations like that long traffic light on your way home from work or that road rage you feel boiling on your way to the store is just not worth it. Let it go because the more you stress the more strain you are putting on your body and heart which in result will make it even harder to lose weight.
In result of doing these things men over 25 and anybody will lose weight if you take this as a guide and make the rest fit what is best for you. Many men are overweight. More than 2 in 3 adults are considered to be overweight or struggle with obesity. Eating right, working out more, and practice a healthy lifestyle are just a few ways to help someone lose a few pounds.
Being overweight leads to things like cancer, strokes, heart attacks, and even death.
Taking time out of your day to practice just a few of these things will lessen your chances of health issues and greaten your chances of a healthier and happier life. It may seem like a struggle at first but with dedication and perseverance you will succeed and be back to “moving and shaking” like the college or high school athlete you once were.

Whatever method you use, you’ll need to favor good-for-you foods like vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and lean protein so you keep up good nutrition. Being your own dietitian and fitness expert is the overall achievement. Nobody knows your body better than you. Every quick fix you read or easy method you hear may not work for you. Every method is different because everybody is different.
