  • As you guys know, I've been testing out Good Guy Wellness's hair regrowth regimen over the past few weeks and I've been impressed with the experience. While results take time, just the act of taking control has helped improve my confidence in having photos taken for Instagram and Facebook posts. While hair loss and the process to regrow that hair is ultimately a medical condition, confidence is key too. That's why we've partnered with the company to give away one of their Hair Regrowth Kits and a $75 gift card to help you have an awesome date night.

  • When the sun is shining, you don’t want to be working out indoors. If anything, it makes hitting the gym harder than ever because you want to lounge in the sun. The trick is to sync the two so that you’re still exercising as hard as ever, but you’re doing it in an outdoor environment.

  • Dealing with jet lag is one of the worst parts of traveling for me. When I was younger, my body adjusted quickly. Today though, it gets all sorts of confused and I end up being a mess for a day or two on either side of my trips. Traveling to a different time zone can completely disrupt your normal circadian rhythm, making it difficult to go to bed and wake up. This disrupted sleep pattern can affect your concentration and mood -- and all too often, by the time you adjust to the new time zone, it’s time to go home and deal with jet lag all over again. 

  • Back pain isn’t fun. And sadly around 80% of us suffer from it at some point in our lives. But it’s not inevitable. If you already suffer from back pain, know that you don't have to live with it. Here are five ways you can ease back pain.

  • None of us exercise without wanting to get anything out of it. Whether you are looking for ways to improve your health and fitness and take care of your body, you want to improve your stamina, you are looking to gain muscle mass, or you want to lose some weight, you’ll have a goal in mind. Even if you are only exercising to take care of your long-term health and maintain a healthy weight, you’d be disappointed if you were spending hours a week in the gym without getting stronger, fitter or finding that you can walk up that hill without being out of breath. 

  • Honestly, before the past few months I’ve never really considered hair loss as something that was a concern. This year however, I’ve made a change in how I’m engaging online with folks like you and that means that I’m putting myself out there more than I used to. While I’ve had a lot of fun it’s also meant more photos from different angles. This, unfortunately, led me to discover that my hair isn’t just receding in front but thinning out on top, back and even a bit on the sides. That’s why I was excited to connect with Good Guy Wellness and try out their hair regrowth regimen complete with a 5% minoxidil-based hair regrowth treatment plus a shampoo, conditioner, and gummy vitamins to support healthy hair growth and regrowth.

  • When you travel, it takes a toll on the body. Not just being exhausted from irregular sleep but your gut gets thrown out of whack too. While we know that eating better, drinking more water, stretching, and getting more rest can help – fiber is key too. I used to laugh when I’d hear people talking about “staying regular” but as I matured, I realized that keeping your digestive system happy has a lot more benefits than just being able to poop better! Now, it’s my key to avoiding the bio-lag due to poor food choices and chaotic schedules when I travel.

  • Keeping your teeth clean and healthy is an important part of your dental and overall health. While you’re spending a lot of time and money making your skin or hair looking their best, your teeth need attention too, or you’ll wind up dealing with cavities, gum disease, and other unpleasant dental issues. Worst case scenario—you’ll wind up losing adult teeth prematurely and need costly procedures like crowns, bridges or even dentures.

  • Most people identifying as part of the LGBT+ community have most likely struggled with that fact when it comes to medical treatment of any kind. Before acceptance hopefully found its way into each individual’s life there where and most likely will continue to be certain times when the world can seem an unforgiving place filled with fear, anxiety and pain. Sometimes these uncertain and difficult times become too much to bear and perhaps one find themselves searching for comfort in negative and harmful places. Asking for help is then one of the most difficult things to do but once that step is taken, the road to recovery can begin.

  • Pain is a concept everybody knows and understands. Fortunately there is no shortage of ways to respond to aches and pains but personally I am not a fan of taking pharmaceuticals and other drugs - even common pain relievers. Instead, I prefer to deal with it by managing the sensation naturally. However, I'm excited about the growth of the CBD industry and it's potential to both manage chronic pains as well as address acute immediate pain when used in conjunction with massage, acupuncture, and other holistic methods.

  • There are many different reasons that we engage in physical activities. Some do it for a better aesthetic, others want to become physically and mentally stronger, while others engage in competitions for the thrill of the fight and the glory of victory.

  • Energy Drinks have all but replaced coffee as the “go to drink” for a pick me up. Unfortunately, while the race for the ultimate power boost has been going on for a while – some brands are pushing limits a bit too far. That mean’s it’s up to you to know your limits, do your research, and understand what your body can handle.

  • One of my goals for 2019 is to avoid unnecessary stress and focus on working smarter not harder when it comes to things that impact my health and happiness. One of the big challenges with that is frequent heartburn since my life involves often unavoidable stress and frankly, I don’t want to give up some of my favorite foods. Luckily, this year I’m working with Prilosec OTC and together we’re ready to tackle anything that might be coming our way.

  • The kidneys might not get the same amount of love that other parts of our body do but make no mistake - they are just as important as your heart, lungs, bladder, and colon. That's why we're the National Kidney Foundation asked us to help share some important things that guys need to know about their kidneys during the foundation's annual fundraising campaign.

  • 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?
