Men don't care about health?

Do men don't care about health issues? I noticed alot of guys don't exercise hence they accumulated a large belly. Heart attack is the main cause of death for men. I have to exercise rigorously to stay healthy. My dad died of heart attack therefore I am determined to avoid that fate

What are you basing your theory off of? If you're saying men don't care then are you saying women care? I see many obese women too and it's not just limited to men.

I think there are too many temptations in life like fast food, sugary food, processed meat etc that is causing the obesity in people. I think people in general are more health conscious in the sense that they do exercise but long work hours and long periods of sitting at the desk is counter balancing the time they do go out to exercise. I think there are more fitness centers and they are all pretty busy. I believe everyone cares but it's so tough to stay in tip top shape once you hit a certain age.

However I do agree that I see more fat bellies than no bellies.

I'm seeing more fit guys and fat women these days, but that may be because I work in a female-dominated industry. I'm noticing a lot of younger guys are really getting into fitness, though. The girls, not so much.

my whole apartment is full 90% fat belly. I have seen at least 10 people in my work area over weight. the women are definitely over weight. none of the people in my apartment play any sports such as soccer, baseball, jogging or biking.

I see more males at the gym than females. Therefore females don't care about health?

OP, looks like men are more health conscious than females, if you are looking at the bellies. According to 2012-13 Statistics Canada data
The proportion of adults considered to have an increased health risk was lower when waist circumference and BMI were considered together (see About body composition). Approximately 41% of the Canadian population aged 18 to 79 (34% of males and 48% of females) were determined to have a body composition associated with increased health risk (Chart 3). Older adults aged 40 to 79 were more likely to have a body composition associated with an increased health risk compared to younger adults aged 18 to 39 years. Younger females aged 18 to 39 were more likely than younger males aged 18 to 39 to have a body composition associated with an increased health risk (38% for females vs. 13% for males). There were no differences between males and females for older adults aged 40 to 79.

On the show Border Security, u see all these steroids coming in thru the post that the CBSA are intercepting. Is it healthy to put your long term health at risk to look all bulked up the easy way?

And, check out the threads in the Food forum. Unhealthy.

Any change must be a lifestyle change for it to be sustained. That is the hardest part about change it isn't something you can do once and then go back to the old ways. It must be consistent to be powerful and effective.
