Could Your Performance Use a Boost?


Hey, guys, could your game use a little boost? Whether it’s on the playing field, at the office, or in the bedroom, how well you perform depends on how you treat your body and what you’re using to fuel it. With a few small changes in your diet and exercise routine, you can join the ranks of men who have the power to perform without petering out. Pump up your prowess with these 10 habits:

1. Supersize Your Muscles

Get off that couch and start alcoholic drinks, cakes, cookies, candies, and high-fructose corn syrup, which lurks in many processed foods. The sugar adds up quickly and provides little more than added calories, and there’s little room in a pumped-up body for those sinister empty calories. The World Health Organization recommends people get less than 10% of calories from sugars. Can you live without it? Give it a try! Substitute a piece of fruit when you need to satisfy your sweet calcium-rich dairy foods. That translates to weight gain and weak bones. Recent research suggests that low-fat dairy products are the new weapons in the battle of the bulge. The protein and calcium in dairy enhance weight loss. Jump on the healthy protein express by consuming three servings a day of skim or low-fat dairy foods. Got milk?

9. Eat Eggs

Get a lifetime of health benefits by eating eggs regularly. Thirty years of research have vindicated the egg and properly restored it to its proper position as a powerhouse. Eggs are inexpensive, contain high biological protein, are an eggcellent source of 13 essential vitamins and minerals, and adapt to any meal. The best part, most guys know how to cook eggs.

10. Stop the Weight Creep

Beat it before it becomes permanently attached to your love handles. The National Institutes of Health tracked 195 men and women and found that annually we gain about one pound over the holidays and never lose the added weight. If you lose a few pounds during the warm and active season, you can counteract holiday weight gain and increase your chance of staying thin into old age, according to the researchers. The WebMD Weight Loss Clinic can lead the way! We have the formula that really works to shed those unwanted pounds.

Put it all together, and you’ve got 10 simple habits that can help you last all day and through the night. Just do it!
