Busy Dad's Guide to Total Health

Busy Dad’s Guide to Total Health


We don’t realize how important our health is until we lose it. No man wants poor health to get in the way of becoming the best version of himself, but how do we make health a priority when life gets in the way?

Today Dr. Ryan Wohlfert is back on The Dad Edge to give you the busy dad’s guide to total health. This list of simple hacks for fitness, nutrition, and sleep will fit into any lifestyle. Best of all, these habits can be incorporated into your existing schedule without having to give up other aspects of your life.

Don’t wait to improve your health. Start today!

Busy Dad’s Guide to Total Health

FITNESS

  • Save the drive time to the gym by working out at home.
  • Take advantage of opportunities to take walks and runs with the dog or your family.
  • Do isometric exercises in the car or at your desk.
  • Be active and get involved while coaching kids.
  • Do 10-minute mini workouts of squats, push ups or burpees throughout the day. These will have a cumulative effect.

DIET

  • Ensure you’re getting greens, fruits, healthy fats, and proteins by setting up daily smoothies.
  • Plan your meals out for the week to avoid the last-minute need for fast food and take out dinners.
  • Make easy nutritious dinners ahead of time in the crock pot, like soups and stews.
  • Use apps to make sure you and your spouse are on the same page with meal planning and shopping.

SLEEP

  • If you can’t increase your quantity of sleep, increase the quality.
  • Set a time to turn off all devices and TVs.
  • Take the TV out of your bedroom.
  • We need thirty to thirty-five 90-minute sleep cycles per week, so it is possible to catch up on sleep cycles by napping and catching up on your days off.

Optimizing Male Hormones for Fat Loss, Energy, and Libido with Alex Van Houten

Optimizing Male Hormones for Fat Loss, Energy, and Libido with Alex Van Houten


Behold the dadbod. How did we get this way? The stubborn belly fat that doesn’t go away no matter how hard we work. The muscle mass that’s harder to maintain than it used to be. We don’t have the same energy and stamina we used to. Maybe things have even cooled off in the bedroom.

Alex Van Houten is the founder of Defining Dadbod. He’s going to talk about how our chemistry changes after we become fathers and how to define the dadbod by optimizing our male hormones for fat loss, energy, and libido.

Alex Van Houten and Defining Dadbod

Alex Van Houten was on track to become an orthopedic surgeon, but he noticed both the patients and doctors didn’t like the business. That was when he veered toward the prevention side of health and became a personal trainer. In his work, Alex often dealt with menopausal women and became interested in hormones and how they affect energy levels, body composition, and libido.

The changes women go through are complex, but men also go through distinct changes. When Alex became a dad he experienced himself what the male body goes through. He looked into it and discovered that there are scientific reasons for the infamous ‘dadbod,’ but men’s challenges with hormones don’t get the same attention as women’s.

Alex aims to change that with Defining Dadbod.
