Healthy Foods For Men

Men and women differ in different ways and that includes their nutritional needs. Men need nutrients that can help them maintain muscle mass, prevent prostate cancer, and more just as women need particular nutrients during pregnancy or for protection from breast cancer.

A healthy diet and regular physical activity can help prevent heart disease and cancer, but many foods that tend to be favorites among men are not the best choices for good health.

Here’s a list of foods that’s healthy and men will surely enjoy and at the same time, it would also boost their energy.

1. Lean Red Meat

Red meat is good for guys because lean cuts of beef and pork are packed with protein and have only a little more fat than chicken breast. Red meat is also one of the best sources of leucine, an amino acid that helps build muscle.

2. Tart Cherries

Cherry juice can soothe sore muscles. The pigment in cherries and cherry juice mimics the effects of some anti-inflammatory medicines and there are no side effects.

3. Chocolate

Men with poor blood flow are more likely to develop erectile dysfunction, so heart-wise foods may protect your sex life, too. But if you eat the right kind of chocolate it may improve blood flow. Studies suggest the flavanols in dark chocolate may curb levels of bad cholesterol, improve circulation, and keep blood pressure in check. But too much chocolate can lead to weight gain. Eating one ounce a day is recommended.

4. Shellfish

Research has linked zinc deficiency to poor sperm quality and male infertility. Shellfish and other types of seafood are rich in zinc, which is critically important for the heart, muscles, and reproductive system. If you're not a seafood fan, nuts and seeds provide an excellent alternative for stocking up on zinc.

5. Avocado

Avocado is high in fat but it's the "good" kind. The monounsaturated fat found in avocados packs a one-two punch against cholesterol when it replaces saturated or trans fats in your diet. It can knock down levels of total cholesterol and "bad" cholesterol (LDL), as long as no more than 25%-35% of your daily calories come from all types of fat. Olive oil and nuts also contain good fats.

6. Fatty Fish

Omega-3 fatty acids protects against heart disease, some cancers, and arthritis. Fatty fish, like salmon or halibut, are another excellent source of healthy fat. Studies suggest two servings of fatty fish per week can lower your chances of dying from heart disease.

Adding nutrient-rich super foods to the diet, as well as taking a daily multivitamin designed exclusively for men (for nutritional insurance), can give men's nutrition a boost.
