You might be eating too much protein
You want to keep your body strong, you’re committed to exercise, strength-training, and a diet of muscle-friendly protein. Unfortunately, many men turn directly to protein supplements, which can be problematic when you’re taking them for an extended period of time. (These are much healthier ways to sneak in protein.) “Men are often the main consumers of protein supplements as part of a muscle-building routine, and the overconsumption of protein can actually stress the kidneys, and be a key indicator of increased cancer risk,” explains certified culinary health expert, Ken Immer. While your physician may ask you how you’re feeling and how much you drink, but they probably won’t ask you about how many scoops of chemical, powdery-stuff you add to a smoothie each week. A nutritionist, on the other hand, can help you get the body you want, without sacrificing your health.
What’s up with your sex life
Talking about sexual performance may be the last thing you want to do, especially if it’s not going great. If you do manage to ask your doctor about it and the next thing you know you have a script in your hand for an erectile dysfunction drug, pump the brakes. Consider seeking the advice of a specialist such as a urologist or a sexologist. These doctors may be able to find another source and solution to your problems by identifying trends and symptoms. “It is normal for a man to lose his erection during intercourse and can happen to any man. Most of the time, it is not a medical emergency, it is usually anxiety-related,” clinical sexologist, Dawn Michael, PhD explains. “Though prescribed often, Viagra does not give a man an erection. He needs to already have an erection for the medication to work properly,” she says. For many men, physical aids and techniques will work better.
