Men’s Nutrition Coaching
You are what you eat. Nutrition plays a big role in hormone replacement therapy and health in general. Without a proper diet, your body lacks the nutrients it needs to function at its finest.
The doctors at HealthGains take nutrition very seriously. When you start a hormone therapy program, your doctor will review your current diet and adjust it accordingly. We’ll show you what foods to avoid during hormone therapy and which ones you should be eating. Each eating plan is different and is based on your body type, weight-loss goals and a number of other factors.
Although each eating plan is different, there are general nutrition guidelines that everyone can benefit from. We’ve rounded up the best diet and nutrition tips below.
Nutritional Counseling for Men
1. Drink more water. A lot of us aren’t getting enough water. Instead, we’re spending our time drinking coffee, tea and other beverages that dehydrate you rather than hydrate you. You should aim to drink about eight glasses of water each day - more if you work out regularly.
2. Have protein at every meal. Protein is crucial for muscle maintenance and growth so make sure you’re getting enough of it. One way to do so is by having a protein source at every meal. Some good lean protein sources include salmon and chicken breast. You may also want to consider a protein supplement.
3. Stay away from sugary foods. Throw out all your junk food. Out of sight is out of mind. By tossing out all your junk food, you won’t be tempted to snack on it. One reason you really want to avoid sugary foods is satiety. Sugary foods lack the nutrients that fill you up, such as fiber. You’ll be hungry again witin the hour after eating that candy bar.
