Belly fat is common, especially as you age. For many people, belly fat can be the most stubborn area to lose weight, even if you're doing everything right. There are two types of belly fat; subcutaneous, which sits right under the skin, and visceral which is in deeper and surrounds your organs - this is where the stubborn belly fat lives. Belly fat can come from a number of lifestyle factors including a lack of exercise, poor diet, lack of sleep, alcohol consumption, and stress. Belly fat can also arise from natural causes, like genetics and hormones.
Menopause occurs about a year after a woman's last menstrual cycle, typically happening in women anywhere between the ages of 40 and 60. Menopause is a natural biological process and happens as women age. The process is the endpoint for a woman's fertility, although it does come with some other side effects and health issues.
One of the main symptoms of a hormonal balance and menopause is a change in sleep patterns. This could mean that you're suffering from insomnia, having trouble falling asleep and staying asleep throughout the night, and feeling less rested when you wake up after sleeping. Furthermore, as you age you start to feel more sluggish, fatigued, less motivated, and we have less energy and become tired easier - this can have a major impact on how well you sleep at night. Sleep deprivation can sometimes result in more serious issues down the road including mental illness.
Sometimes food can be the best medicine - and for those at risk of cancer, or currently fighting cancer, what you eat can be more important than you think. For many people, the healing powers of food can not only just help you feel better, but even help you fight off, decrease, and prevent a disease from spreading. In some cases, your diet may influence the development of cancer, so eating healthy all the time is imperative to keep your body strong.
It’s always a good idea to add exercise and movement into your daily routine. Exercising regularly can keep your heart, body, and mind healthy. Exercise can also increase endorphins, which are what keep you happy. Breaking a sweat is the best way to keep your metabolism in check, and keep any excess weight off. Being overweight can lead to many other health issues down the road.
Erectile Dysfunction, also known as ED, is when a man is not able to get an erection initially or maintain an erection during sexual activity. Many men over the age of 40 are currently or will experience these symptoms, and it can be a sign of other underlying health issues both physically and psychologically, and even heart disease. ED is often caused by low testosterone, which can also result in poor libido and low sex drive. If ED continues over a long period of time, it may cause problems in a relationship, affect self-esteem, and cause stress.
Eating a healthy well-rounded diet is one of the best ways to keep your body fit, your immune system strong, and to live a long and healthy life.
