Live Best With Judy Barbe: Men’s Health

“No man was ever shot while he was doing dishes” is a sign that hangs in my sister’s kitchen. But there’s more to the kitchen than dishes or avoiding being shot. How a man eats throughout his life can help predict how well (or not) he ages.

Eating to age well looks something like this:

• At least 2 cups of fruits and 2½ cups of vegetables each day.

• At least half of all grains should be whole grains such as whole-grain bread, cereal, or pasta, brown rice or oats.

• Plus two to three servings of fish per week.

• And men younger than 50 need 38 grams of fiber a day while those over 50 need 30 grams a day.

You may think osteoporosis is a women’s disease, but up to one in four men over the age of 50 will break a bone due to osteoporosis. Calcium, vitamin D, and protein are supreme friends to your bones. Good-for-your-bone food sources include yogurt, milk, sardines, cheese, and dried plums.

 

This is Judy Barbe, helping you LiveBest.
