Being overweight is often linked to cardiovascular issues and can make a man run out of energy faster. It can also been a shot to the self-esteem. In order to reach a healthy weight, Shindel advises 30 minutes of aerobic exercise five days a week and ditching processed foods. "My personal recommendation is that they make slow, sustainable changes. Don't change everything at once," he says. He isn't a fan of fad diets but sees promise in Mediterranean-style foods. Whatever you chose, Shindel says being able to stick with your changes is key.
