What Makes Men’s Nutrition Unique? A Manhattan Spa Explains, Manhattan, New York

With all the attention that is devoted to diet and health these days, it can be difficult to keep up. What’s more, much advice you find out there isn’t directed towards men, and the fact of the matter is that men have different nutrition needs than women. As part of a Manhattan, NY-based men’s spa that offers a range of body work as well as a number of other services, such as facials, waxing, manicures, and pedicures, the staff of Paradise Men’s Spa know that rejuvenation is a holistic process—and nutrition is a hugely important aspect to keep in mind.

Here the Paradise Men's Spa specialists explain a few core principles that differentiate men's nutrition from women's:

  • More Calories: The biggest difference between men’s and women’s dietary needs is that men have a greater need for calories. According to WebMD, this requirement is based on the level of lean body mass (LBM), which is a function of hormones. A ‘typical,’ 180-pound man has 17% body fat and 150 pounds of LBM, requiring approximately 2,100 calories; whereas the typical woman, weighing in at 130 pounds, has 23% body fat and 100 pounds of LBM and only needs around 1,400 calories per day.
  • SpaMore Protein: Men, especially athletes, require more protein in their diets, particularly if they are trying to build muscle. Determining the optimal amount of protein is pretty easy: divide your weight by 2.2. The amount you get may seem large, but it’s a far healthier bet than foods that are loaded with carbohydrates.
  • Age & Nutrition: As men age, their nutritional needs change; one of the more prominent differences, according to the MayoClinic, is that the metabolism slows down. What does this mean? Since older men typically become less physically active, their diet needs to be modulated to accommodate the situation. Nutrient density is key, as this helps preserve cardiac, ocular, bone, and immune system health.

From a broader perspective, good health is also associated with stress relief, which is something that you gain from going to Paradise Men’s Spa. More than indulgence, a visit there is holistic healing. To learn more about this men’s day spa in Hell's Kitchen, visit them online or call (646) 559-1621 today.
