Black Men In America.com has been in partnership with Black Doctor.org (BDO) for years in an effort to bring you live a happier and healthier life.  Black Doctor.org is the world’s largest and most comprehensive online health resource specifically targeted to African Americans. As much as we’d love for healthcare to be one-size-fits-all, the reality is that this is not the case – today’s Black community has higher incidences of just about every major disease and condition out there, as well as shorter life spans.  BDO understands that the uniqueness of Black culture – our heritage and our traditions – plays a role in our health.  BDO also understand that there’s a lot of mistrust of the healthcare system. That mistrust, combined with all the contradictory information in the media today, makes it difficult to truly feel in control of your health, and your life.

Together with BDO let us you see how good it feels to be in control of living a healthier, happier life!

(BlackDoctor.org) — Steve Harvey, the King of Comedy, actor, and celebrated host of his own top-rated, nationally syndicated morning radio show, has long been known for these things: His extremely toothy, 1,000-watt, gleaming-white grin; his impeccably trimmed, unconventionally high afro; and his curiously long, baggy, and colorful zoot suit-inspired apparel. Indeed, this is the Steve Harvey you expect to see when you hear his voice which explains why his weight loss transformation made jaws drop to the floor.

It’s a fitness and weight loss transformation, revealed just recently, his fans are appreciating. Now Steve Harvey hopes middle-aged men who’ve traded in their fitness exercise program in the gym for an unhealthy diet plan will embrace his fitness and weight loss journey and choose to embark on their own fitness exercise program journey. The comedian’s head-to-gut alteration is part of his new “50 and Fly” campaign, in which he and Haney, now a fitness trainer and fitness exercise and nutrition expert, are encouraging men ages 40 and older to tone up, lose weight, eat the right diet plan, and, most importantly, stop using age as an excuse to skip doing any fitness exercise program.
