Miami, FL (PRWEB) March 10, 2014
AAG Health & Wellness, the leader in integrative wellness, has been helping men lead healthier lives for more than a decade. In an effort to educate the public about the dangers of an unhealthy lifestyle, AAG Health wellness coach Jenny Patrizia and Federico Martinez, MD, sat down for the Huffington Post to discuss a big trend among the Latin community that’s negatively impacting diet.
Many Hispanic men feel that eating healthy is emasculating. It’s just not “macho” to count calories and watch what they eat, says Ms. Patrizia. In the HuffPo interview, Dr. Martinez acknowledges that this mentality – known as machismo -- is a common problem; a lot of these men put what society thinks above their own health. As a result, Hispanic men are missing out on critical nutrients like antioxidants and fiber that play a huge role in one’s general health.
“Men should not be afraid to eat certain foods simply because they think someone will think of them as less manly,” says Dr. Martinez. “Fruits, vegetables and other ‘less manly’ foods are all part of a well-rounded diet and should not be disregarded.”
Dr. Martinez is one of the latest additions to the AAG Health team, which is led by Senior Medical Director Christopher Senger, MD. Dr. Martinez, a native of Peru and a board-certified physician, has worked in the medical field for over 20 years with a focus in anti-aging medicine. Both he and Ms. Patrizia will continue to contribute for the Huffington Post to further educate the public about the latest nutrition trends.
