Most people have long been convinced that there is a specially designed, proper diet for men. Is this true, or is it just another well-known myth?
“Meat is what is considered authentic men’s food!”
But that’s not true. Protein, which is found in animal products, is needed by men, first of all, to keep their biceps in proper shape. And by the way, their mass is 10% higher than that of women.
Secondly, the male sex hormones are powered by protein, so its systematic intake into the body is very important. For example, testosterone is responsible for the emotional and physical state of the man, and affects his sexual performance.
So, “down with the fatty foods”!
Sausages, frankfurters, dumplings, pork chops are not a complete source of protein. The fats in these products can cause the development of heart diseases, and men are especially prone to them because of the life, full of multiple stress and a lot of bad habits.
Perfectly suitable lean meat, which includes veal, beef, lamb, chicken and rabbit. If you cook steamed meat, it will not really please a man. But, for example, if you bake the meat or cook it on the grill, it will be much tastier and, in addition, it will get rid of excessive fat.
Such meat is best eaten with vegetable sauces, prepared at home. After all, modern mayonnaises and ketchups, which men love so much, contain a lot of sugar, salt and various chemical constituents.
Milk, as a standard drink for children, and everything made from it, is also an appropriate food for men of all ages. Especially cottage cheese–it is considered a great building block for muscles because it has protein. Also, cottage cheese includes calcium, which helps keep bones and joints stable.
If natural dairy products are not to a man’s liking, they can easily be replaced with kefir, yogurt, casseroles, and cheesecakes. But the sugar here should be in a minimal amount.
Men are big sweet eaters, although they do not want to admit it. They are able to secretly devour cookies, cakes and wash them down with liters of sweet carbonated water.
A large amount of sugar and all kinds of refined products are not good for the male figure, just as they are for the female figure. Although the male body also spends nine hundred kilocalories more per day than the female body, but it, too, is prone to the development of metabolic syndrome. This disease is a disorder of carbohydrate metabolism due to decreased insulin sensitivity, obesity, and increased blood pressure.
“A big belly is not about beer…”
The term “abdominal obesity” means nothing other than “beer belly,” if you put it another way, a deposit of fat on the waist. Its presence portends a stroke or heart attack.
Therefore, you need to forget about cakes and sweet tea. Instead, you can eat fresh berries and fruits, which contain antioxidants that protect blood vessels.
But porridge served for breakfast will benefit not only young children. If breakfast is wholesome and hot, it will make it possible to skip the machine with chocolates and sandwiches.
A real man is distinguished not only by the absence of a belly, but also by his biceps. He will need, also, success in bed. And then, meat alone won’t be enough. Will be needed also acids, vitamins B, C, E, folic acid, zinc, selenium.
For this reason, the usual excuses like, “I don’t eat grass,” should simply be forgotten. All greens have folic acid and B vitamins. Natural oils in salads are an indispensable source of vitamin E. If you consume fruit daily, it will help vitamin C always be present in the body in the right amount.
Omega-3 fatty acids are present, besides olive oil, also in fish and other seafood. By the way, they also contain zinc and selenium.
Nuts also contain these vitamins. But you should not eat too many of them, because they are very caloric.
It should be noted that roach and dried squid do not contribute to the improvement of reproductive functions. They contain a lot of salt, which provokes frequent visits to the toilet at night. But the body will not benefit from such products.
