As we ease into summer, our focus at Healthy Living Made Simple and Sam’s Club remains the same — to deliver value to our members and promote healthy living. In this issue, we turn our attention to men’s health and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Our cover story features TV and media superstar Mario Lopez. Best known for the hit 90s show Saved by the Bell, Lopez has spent the years following that show redefining his roles as an entertainer, a father and a proponent for healthy living. Lopez shares the workout and eating tips that keep him looking and feeling fabulous as he ages.

As men age, it is part of the natural process for testosterone levels to decline. Certain medical conditions like diabetes, depression and several other chronic diseases can have a greater impact on lessening testosterone levels. Dr. Culley Carson discusses how low T is diagnosed and treated, and the impact testosterone replacement therapy can have on a man’s overall health.

Eating better, something we all strive to do for both our physical and financial health, can be a challenge. With busy schedules and the stress of the workday, it’s tempting to take the easy way out and pick up fast food on the way home. Our story on the benefits of dining in reinforces how you can better control the portions and nutrition of your meals when you plan ahead, buy in bulk and eat smart.

There is no denying the advances being made in the world around us. In our Caregivers Commitment story, we look at which service industries are going to need to grow along with this population to help maintain healthy living standards.

We value your input on Healthy Living Made Simple and hope you enjoy the magazine as it reinforces our ongoing commitment to provide content that benefits your life and enhances your Sam’s Club membership. We welcome your feedback and suggestions for topics you’d like covered in the future at

To your health,

Jill Turner-Mitchael
