Men's Wellness

Putting Patients First

Wellness in men is an important aspect of overall health and well-being. There are many different factors that contribute to wellness in men, including physical activity, stress management, healthy eating, and getting enough sleep. Here are a few tips for promoting wellness in men:

Physical Health:

By maintaining a healthy lifestyle, men can reduce their risk of developing chronic conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.

Mental Health:

Wellness practices, such as regular exercise and stress management techniques, can help men maintain good mental health and reduce the risk of conditions such as depression and anxiety.

Healthy Diet:

A healthy diet is an important part of overall wellness. A healthy diet includes a variety of different foods from all food groups, is high in nutrients such as fiber, vitamins, and minerals, limits the intake of processed and sugary foods, and promotes hydration.


Adequate sleep is essential for good health. Aim for 7-9 hours of sleep each night.

Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR):

Your BMR is the amount of energy (measured in calories) that your body needs to function while at rest. It is the minimum amount of energy that your body needs to keep your vital organs functioning, such as your heart, lungs, and brain. Your BMR is influenced by several factors, including your age, gender, weight, height, and muscle mass.

To calculate your BMR, you can use the Harris-Benedict equation, which is a widely used formula:
For men: BMR = 66 + (6.2 x weight in pounds) + (12.7 x height in inches) – (6.76 x age in years)

This equation provides an estimate of your BMR, which you can then use to determine your daily calorie needs. However, it’s important to note that this equation is not accurate for everyone and may not take into account individual differences in metabolism. To accurately determine your BMR, it is best to consult with a healthcare provider or registered dietitian. They can help you determine your BMR and create a personalized nutrition plan based on your specific needs and goals. 

It’s important to prioritize your own wellness and find what works best for you. If you have concerns about your health or well-being, please consult with a healthcare provider.
