Before moving ahead, look at the facts:

About 700,000 men are diagnosed with cancer every year, with 300,000 of those ending in death (Men's Health Resource Center).
Every year, 230,000 men are identified with prostate cancer. In men, it is the second biggest cause of death (Cancer.org).
Over 60% of adult men in the United States have obesity (National Institute of Health).
Now, after scanning the statistics you know it is time to take a proactive approach to your health. Let's get into it.
Here are the tips you should follow for better health.
START EATING HEALTHY FOOD
In this fast and dynamic world, you might be eating pizzas, burgers, and a lot of junk food. But this is the time to quit all of this. Fast foods are uselessly rich in calories, fats, and sugar.
Try to eat a healthy and nutritious diet. Now you'll be wondering what to eat? Try these:
Start eating fiber-rich carbohydrates to maintain high energy during the day. You should add potatoes, oats, and rice to your diet plan. Keep yourself as right as rain by putting fibers into your stomach.
If you're not eating an egg per day, you're losing your body muscles. Start keeping high protein foods on your table i.e. egg whites, chicken, and red meat. You can also switch to veggie-based proteins like beans and peas.
Stop using soda drinks. Soft drinks or soda drinks are high in sugar and artificial flavors. Additionally, chemicals are an awkward surprise for your healthy body. Avoid them. Kick them out! Instead, water should be your healthy friend. Keep yourself hydrated and blooming by drinking at least 3-4 liters of water a day. After a few days, you'll be surprised to see the change. Thank me later.
Do you have fruits and vegetables in your meals? If not then have it. Eat fruits and veggies daily to provide vitamins to your body. Add a variety of fruits to your meals to have the necessary vitamins, minerals, and nutrients.
Just like your hectic work life, you might be having the same meals again and again. Having the same food more often makes your stomach habitual and boring just like your routine life. Have a variety of foods in your meals. Always surprise your stomach by giving it different kinds of diet. This will keep your stomach busy working for your body, anytime!
NATURAL/ORGANIC FOOD IS CRUCIAL
If you are trying to use healthy food then you understand that it includes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and proteins. But keep in mind that this all should be natural or organic. Because food is more than just a source of energy. The diet you consume can minimize your chances of diseases and keep you young and shining.
Organic food is safe and tasty, having more nutrients than non-organic food. The major agent behind cancer diseases is the artificial and synthetic food items around us. It's time to change your dining table stuff!
PAY ATTENTION TO NUTRITION FACTS
Keep an eye on the nutrients in your meals. Do a little research on meals you're having; how much carbohydrates, proteins, sugar, and fats do your body need and how much are you taking in? This is a result-oriented approach. It'll show the impact of your diet on your body more logically, hence motivating you to improve more.
VISIT YOUR DOCTOR
If you go to your doctor only when you're seriously sick then you're among that 40% who do the same. This is shocking that only 60% of men take their annual physical check-ups. Try to visit your doctor at least once a month. Your physician or local health department might perform some medical screenings.
It'll be helpful in keeping you updated about your body. This will also help in identifying early cancer and other complexities.
If you smoke, you must quit it, because on average 150,000 people die from lung cancer every year in America alone. And this 25% of all the cancer deaths. Tobacco companies are doing an awkward business and still successful; selling lung cancer and people are buying mindlessly.
Be a mature and healthy man for your family. By dropping cigarettes, you'll have a healthier and longer life.
BREAK UNHEALTHY HABITS
When it comes to health our habits and desires are our enemies. If you have bad habits like smoking, drinking, partying, and eating junk or fast foods, you must develop the courage to get rid of them without any delay.
These habits are not only damaging your health but your finance as well. Quitting such practices will save you a lot of wealth and from sicknesses too. So start saving and start investing in yourself.
