Stop the Clock: How Men Can Stay Healthy, Fit and Strong at Any Age - Part 2

Did you read read Part 1 of my Stop the Clock: How Men Can Stay Healthy, Fit and Strong at Any Age series? If you didn't get a chance to read it, take a look at it right now before continuing. Read Part 1 first.

Good Nutrition & Hydration

Keeping your body healthy starts with a good diet, but did you know what you eat may also contribute to looking younger for longer periods of time? Antioxidants play a huge role in protecting against free radical damage, which leads to cellular breakdown.

  • Keep your diet regular. If you follow a regular eating schedule, you'll have less of a tendency to skip meals or overeat. You'll also avoid weight fluctuations, which can contribute to sagging skin and stretch marks.
  • Eat a wide variety of foods and follow a balanced diet full of fruits, vegetables and fiber. Not only does fiber regulate the digestive system, it also helps lower cholesterol.
  • Drink lots of water. Hydration is important for your body because it helps flush out waste, metabolizes fat and transports oxygen to cells. Drinking at least 8 glasses of clear fluids a day is essential to maintaining good health.
Healthy Sleep

Sleep is the time your body uses to repair and rejuvenate, and lack of sleep can contribute to dark under-eye circles and devitalized, sagging skin.
  • A poll conducted by the National Sleep Foundation found that less than half of the 1,000 recipients reported having a "good night's sleep" every night, and 26% reported only getting a good night's sleep once or twice a month. Sleep deprivation reduces memory, decreases performance and gives one a fatigued appearance - not to mention that it's been linked to such severe health problems as cancer, heart disease, diabetes and obesity.
  • Although it varies from person to person, men should get from 7-8 hours of good sleep a night to fully recharge their body and mind.
  • Make sure where you sleep is dark, comfortable, quiet and free of distractions.
Next week I'll talk about exercise and stress reduction. In the meantime if you start eating healthy and regulating your sleep, you'll be on the right path to staying young.
