  • Keeping your car clean - inside and out isn't just a good visually - it can quite literally save your life and certainly save money. All too often, we dismiss this as simply keeping your wife happy or ignore things until you need to clean out the back seat for company. Let's change those patterns and start saving money as well as protecting your health and safety!

  • What's even less fun than losing a football game? How about a prostate exam. OK, all jokes aside this is just another important part of making sure we stay healthy and so Cancer Treatment Centers of America has teamed up with some NFL greats to help spread the word as well as offer some free testings through Oct 31. With that out of the way, here's what football legend Bart Oates has to say about playing in the NFL, lessons he learned and some of his favorite restaurants!

  • For whatever reason, a lot of people find it hard to talk about mental health. Yet, whether or not you are aware of it, it is something that affects all of us either directly or indirectly, and it is a major important health issue which should not be ignored. This is especially true for men since as boys we are taught to "take it like a man"... "boys don't cry"... and just "suck it up". The reality is life sucks and it's even more confusing today for most men. On one hand we are told that we need to be less masculine, softer spoken, less aggressive - but we are still expected to be rugged individuals able to take a physical or emotional punch without flinching. This leads to some deep mental health issues with many of us, but there are things we can to do help improve our mental health.

  • We all know that it’s important to stay hydrated when working out – but sometimes you work hard and sweat when you are having fun too! It’s not just about hitting the gym or playing sports. While most of you are now heading into winter, it’s important to prep for vacation too! Beach days under the hot sun, body surfing, playing frisbee and other sports can cause stress on your body and I was reminded of this while in Hawaii earlier this month. Here’s how I stayed hydrated with BODYARMOR Sports Drink and so can you.

  • Everyone seems to be talking about doing a Keto Diet recently, but I'd never really looked into it that deeply. Plus, One of my restances to going back on a diet like this was how people all too often abuse "Atkins" style diets. There's absolutely no debate in my mind that this style of diet works - I lost over 100 pounds following a very strict regimen... but then gained more back after quitting. The key to being able to succeed though is focusing on balance and creativity. So, with that in mind I walked around my local grocery store a few days ago and dreamed up two easy to make keto recipes. My conditions for success were: 1) it had to taste great 2) it had to have good colors that were visually interesting and 3) it had to be easy to make. Plus, ultimately it had to follow a fairly strict interpretation of the keto nutrition guidelines.

  • It comes to that point in life, where we think about settling down with our significant other and talk about having children. But, while problems getting pregnant are usually attributed to the woman in the relationship, the fact is, men have their part to play too. So if you have been trying with your partner to get pregnant, and it's not been happening, is it actually down to you?

  • Most domestic flights in Europe and the United States are easy - they are typically less than three hours. That make even marginal conditions tolerable... but what about transcontinental flights or heading to Europe, Hawaii, or South America? For some reason once I pass the four hour mark it's a whole different ball game. Here are some of my tips that I've used to stay happy, comfortable and most importantly healthy on long flights.

  • When it comes to improving our health, it can be a challenge since results often take weeks, months or years. Sometimes, the "result" is simply that nothing happens... that you avoided an issue. This often results in any efforts ending prematurely or never beginning at all, despite our best intentions. Don't worry though, here's our tips to help improve your health that will show results (almost) immediately.

  • Coffee has long been a highly-favored drink among adults. It’s easily one of the most popular drinks in the world, albeit also one of the most addictive. But fear not, the good thing about coffee is that its consumption also comes with a lot of health benefits.

  • As fuel prices continue to rise following a series of global economic events, there really is no better time to take up cycling than now. Not only is it eco-friendly in a way, it is also a surefire method to keeping fit for less.

  • We all know that potassium is important for keeping your body healthy, especially while working out. You’ve probably even heard the advice to go eat a banana to get more potassium but do you really understand why this critical electrolyte is really important? Let’s take a look at how potassium can help your body with fitness and workout performance.

  • We all appreciate the need for keeping our bodies in good health. In truth, the majority of us actively enjoy working out too. Or at the very least, we enjoy the post-workout satisfaction. Unfortunately, finding the time, money, and effort to hit the gym isn’t always easy. Thankfully, there are a number of alternative solutions out there.

  • When it comes time for bed, every man dreads their lover telling them she ‘has a headache’. It may be a cliche, but we’ve all heard it at some stage. Instantly, the mood comes crashing down, and you know you’ll sleep unsatisfied for that night at least.

  • Whether it’s summer or winter, training is probably still a huge part of your routine; the only thing that changes is what you train in! It’s finally time to put away those oversized, warm hoodies and start looking for some summer training gear to make sure you’re comfortable.

  • Premature ejaculation or PE is the number one most common men's sexual health problem. Let's face it - we've all gotten a bit overexcited and couldn't control ourselves. It's not fun, it can be awkward, and sometimes a bit messy. One of the challenges that we face as men is that because so much of our "male image" is tied up in sexual prowess, that failure to perform is something often shrouded in mystery, myth, and bravado. Let's take a look at a few of these myths as well as some treatments that will actually work to help you last longer.

  • Last month, I turned 41 years old and with many of my friends in our 40s now there are all sorts of new conversations that I once thought were only for "old people". Prostate health is one of those topics, but it really should be something that even younger guys are aware of beyond the dreaded "prostate exam" that can come as a surprise the first time your doctor decides to check it. Despite the uncomfortable nature of the conversation though, it's important that men of all ages consider the importance and a healthy prostate and do what we can to avoid and/or cope with prostate cancer. 

  • All too often, I simply just throw a toothbrush and a few other items into my backpack and away I go for a quick trip. That works for a guys weekend, but when you are headed out somewhere fun with that special person in your life, it's important to put a bit more thought into packing. Here's some toiletry kit essentials that you need to pack to ensure the perfect romantic getaway.

  • Colds... everyone hates them and most of us get one at least once per year. Despite this being one of the most common sicknesses, most of us really don't understand what it is or even why they are called colds in the first place. Let's take a look and learn some cool facts about colds.

  • Your body is a machine that needs the proper fuel to function. Unfortunately, our diets don't always allow us to get the nutrients we need. In other cases, science has discovered that to reach peak performance it's necessary to supplement our diet with additional nutrients beyond what we've historically used. One of these that is incredibly important today is Omega-3 Fish Oil. This is a word that we hear all the time, but what exactly is it and how can taking an Omega-3 supplement help improve a man's health? 

  • As fun and exciting as travel can be, it almost always causes disruptions to your existing routines. Most notably, these include eating, exercise, and sleep schedules - all things that are essential for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. For people with diabetes though, these are more than just minor disruptions and so it's important to consider ways to maintain your routine and plan for those inevitable disruptions before it becomes a major issue needing immediate attention.
