During the business trips, many men beeline it to the gym when they’re not on the job, letting off steam and filling dead time. Working out distracts their minds from loved ones they miss and the life that seems to be passing them back in the States. Another result: weight loss and gaining muscle, sometimes in extreme amounts.
These men, fit and healthy when they return, often regain weight and lose strength when back in their everyday routines at home. When the next time comes around, the yo-yo continues with more weight loss and bodybuilding. In conversations, I knew my husband spent a lot of time working out. But I didn’t know how much weight he had lost.
Men’s care package: how to support fitness
Before I finish my story, let me say: We can support our man’s fitness efforts from home and help them maintain a healthy lifestyle, even when faced with difficult environments. When you send a healthy snack care package full of nutritious foods it helps them avoid excess weight loss, while still providing important nutrients and healthy calories. This supports their health and gives them extra strength for their grueling schedules.
Сare packages help you make a personal connection which boosts their mental and emotional health.
