It should go without saying that eating the right foods is mandatory and you should avoid bad foods whenever possible.
This article will serve as your guide to the foods that men should eat and the foods that they should avoid at all costs.
If you find that you are not getting the right amount of nutrients, it would be best to take good supplements for men.
Eat More Berries
Strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries, all of these berries are chockfull of antioxidants that can help prevent cellular damage and, therefore, improve overall health.
The great thing about these berries is that you can have the freedom to however you want to consume them. For me personally, I would either eat them as an afternoon snack or add them to my favorite desserts after the main course.
Eat More Whole Grains
According to the American Heart Association, you should always add whole grains to your diet and that is mainly due to its rich fiber content.
Fiber does wonders for your body as it helps remove plaque in your arteries which can lead to a stronger heart.
Aside from that, whole grains also contain protein, vitamins, and minerals that will surely improve your overall health.
Eat Less Junk Food
I admit, I used to eat copious amounts of junk food. But, it was not only later in my life that I found them to be detrimental to one’s health.
For instance, French Fries are typically cooked in unhealthy oils and as a result, they contain loads of calories with not a lot of nutrients to go along with it.
Donuts are tasty but they also contain loads of sugar and fat that will make you fat (and lead you to type-2 diabetes).
Eat More Sauerkraut
Most of what makes our immune system stronger happens in the gut. If you take probiotics, you should improve your immune system instantly. However, not a lot of men pay close attention to their gut’s health.
If you love sandwiches, I definitely recommend that you eat more sauerkraut. This goes really well with any sandwich and it contains loads of probiotics that will help improve your gut’s health manifold.
Drink Less Beer
Now, you might not want to hear what I am about to say, but there is truth to my following statement. Beer has health benefits. In fact, it is recommended that you drink beer at least once a day, four times a week.
However, if you exceed a glass of beer per day, not only will it lead to weight gain but it can also lead to a host of other conditions, including pancreatitis, liver cirrhosis, certain types of cancer, among many others.
So if anything, limit your alcohol consumption to just one glass per day.
Eat More Dark Vegetables
It is a generally good idea to eat vegetables as they contain loads of nutrients your body needs, but play close attention to dark vegetables.
Eating more dark vegetables reduce the inflammation in your body thanks to their rich antioxidant profile.
Eat Less Fatty Meats
Are you fond of eating bacon and sausages? Well, I am sorry to burst your bubble, but they are unhealthy. Sure, you can eat two pieces of bacon or sausages a day, but eating more can lead to a host of health problems, including heart disease, high blood pressure, to name a few.
If you absolutely cannot live without eating bacon or other fatty meats, just consume them in moderation.
