While we recently celebrated Father’s Day there are so many strong black men leading their families by being the example. They are not only going to work, raising their children, and supporting their spouse but they are being intentional about their health as well. The stereotype is that most black men don’t go to the doctor regularly and you must drag them to the hospital when something is wrong.

That may be true in some cases, but the men I know in my life take care of their health. According to the CDC, black men live 7.1 years less than other racial groups. At this alarming rate, I believe more men are starting to take control of their health and lead their families down the path to a healthier life.

Here are few fathers who lead by example and want to live their best life, a healthy life

Curtis Williams– 46-year-old husband and father of 3 children and 1 grandchild who works out on a regular. Curtis runs outside about 2 miles in the hot Florida heat a couple times a week. He states while he is running it not only makes him feel good, but it gives him tons of energy.

He eats a healthy diet one that includes fruit and vegetables and drinks lots of water throughout the day. Curtis also limits his consumption of beef and haven’t eaten pork in over 20 years
