Vim & Vigor - Winter 2019 - GMC - 12

Ryan Michelle Bathe, make sure their
two sons, Andrew and Amaré, follow a
healthy lifestyle, too.
He doesn't allow junk food in the house,
he's not much of a drinker, he's never
smoked a cigarette, he drinks plenty of
water and he gets lots of exercise.
And while Brown likes the aesthetic
benefits of his regimen, his nutrition
and fitness goals aren't about vanity.
They're about longevity.
"I'm not just looking good for the sake
of looking good," he told the Los Angeles
Times. "I want to live a long, healthy
life. The life expectancy of the African
American male is the shortest of all
groups in this country, and I don't wish
to be a statistic. I want to be around to
see great-grandchildren-and be able to
enjoy them."
Nutrition and fitness experts say
Brown is using his celebrity status for
a good cause by calling attention to the

importance of making healthy habits
part of the family.
"He's setting that example not just
for his family but also for his fans," says
Victoria Yunez Behm, a certified nutrition specialist and a member of the
American College of Nutrition.
And Brown, 43, doesn't plan to slow
down anytime soon.
"I want to go for another 60 years,"
Brown told Variety. "I want to be that
centenarian that walks up to you with
a straight back and says, 'How are you,
young man?'"
Here are some of the ways you-and
your family-can follow Brown's lead.

Drink Lots of Water

Water helps your body regulate temperature, lubricate and cushion joints,
protect your spinal cord, and get rid
of waste, according to the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention.
Brown says he drinks almost a gallon
of water a day because it has other benefits for him, too.
"I try to drink a lot of water-it
hydrates, curbs appetite," he told People.

Although you often hear people say
to drink eight 8-ounce glasses each day
(Brown drinks twice that!), the CDC
doesn't have a recommendation on how
much water you should drink. Rather,
research suggests that most people get
enough water by letting thirst be their
guide. By drinking when you're thirsty,
you're likely to avoid dehydration
and overhydration, both of which can
be problematic.
Water isn't just important for adults.
"Kids need to drink a lot of water,"
Yunez Behm says.
Acknowledging that it can be hard
getting children who are picky or constantly on the go to drink enough water,
Yunez Behm says milk, unsweetened
iced tea and occasional whole fruit juice
can be good options. But stay away from
juice blends and artificially sweetened
beverages like soda.

Make (Mostly)
Healthy Food Choices

In Brown's house, whole foods rule.
"No white pastas, flour or sugar in
my house," Brown told the Los Angeles
