When it comes to a men health diet, it’s important that you know exactly what you’re ingesting. While deep fried chicken fingers have all of the protein you’d expect to get out of boneless, skinless chicken breast, because it’s covered in batter and deep fried it isn’t a healthy choice. If you love chicken wings, it’s also important to know that in many cases they aren’t baked, they’re deep fried. While they don’t have the obnoxious breading that chicken fingers tend to have, they aren’t much healthier. Instead of ordering in a dozen buffalo wings from your favorite pizza place, buy your own frozen wings at the grocery store, cover them in your favorite sauce and bake them. By baking instead of deep frying, you’re saving yourself a ton of added fat and calories.
Another men health diet tip is to replace regular head lettuce salads with mixed spring greens or spinach. While head lettuce has almost no nutritional value, spinach and mixed greens are super foods that are packed with all the vitamins you could ever hope for in a tasty salad base. When you top it off with fresh sliced vegetables, you’ve got yourself a healthy meal that tastes great. It’s important to remember that when it comes to salads, the base isn’t just a vehicle for the dressing. Choose vinaigrettes over creamy dressings, and when possible try those salad sprays that have only a couple of calories per serving.
When you’re on a men health diet, it doesn’t need to be a terrible experience. Healthy foods don’t have to taste bland and horrible, you just need to know which tasty foods are good for you to eat. Nowadays there are plenty of sweets that can satisfy your cravings without pushing you over your daily caloric limits. Choose items with reduced sugar and fat, and always remember to eat in moderation.
