Heart Disease, Cancer and Diabetes are three of the most common health problems for men. However, there are ways to help guys steer clear of these dreaded diseases… enjoy as well. After all, who would enjoy eating great foods and being fit in the process?
Salmon. Salmon and other fatty fish are high in omega-3. A healthy fat (yes, you’re not reading a misprint) which reduces fat build-up in your blood. Regular consumption of omega-3 also helps reduce the chances of an irregular heartbeat.

Beans and Legumes. Plant-based proteins have less fat and cholesterol. Legumes and beans are a good cho
The liver is one of those organs that some people take for granted. Too bad, because the meaty organ on your right side metabolizes drugs you induce and detoxifies your body from chemicals. For this reason, its best that you detect the early signs that your liver is having problems so you can seek immediate treatment.
Yellow tinge in skin and eyes. You won’t look like you’re from The Simpsons, but its close enough. Jaundice is the phenomenon when your skin and the whites of your eyes turn yellowish. This is because there is an excess of a chemical bilirubin secreted by your liver. The organ does this when it’s plagued with hepatitis B, cirrhosis and other issues.

Kayaking. Did you know that there are mangroves in Qatar? They’re in Al Khor. Mangroves are sign of a robust eco system. So when you ride a kayak, you’ll be able to see not just the mangroves, the clean waters but wildlife and other creatures as well. It’s not just a fun experience but an eye-opening moment too. And hopefully, it will lead to you appreciating nature more and taking care of it as well.
Desert Sports. Most people would assume that with a large expanse of sand, the desert is 100 percent boring. But not in Qatar. Typically, you can do dune bashing. If that’s too ‘normal’ for you, try sand skiing, paragliding and quad biking through the giant dun
