The Best Foods For Men
My favorite magazine is Men’s Health Magazine. Men’s Health has the best writers. It also has the best combination of fitness and non-fitness related information. In the June, 2008 issue is a value list called: The 125 Best Foods For Men. If you don’t have a subscription, I suggest you pick up this month’s issue because the list alone is worth the price of the magazine.
Of all of the 125 Best Foods, I have some favorites. I will share them with you today.
Food #2: Quaker Weight Control Oatmeal
They suggest the Banana Bread flavor, but I personally prefer the Cinnamon flavor. We all know that oatmeal is healthy for us. But this oatmeal has added fiber and protein making it great for weight loss. They are also inexpensive and a part of the Don’t Go Broke Diet.
Food #68: South Beach Diet Pepperoni Pizza
I love SBD Pizza, especially the Pepperoni. It tastes great. It is very high in protein (almost 40% protein). It is also high in fiber. SBD Pizzas are a great weight loss meal. I would have put them in my Don’t Go Broke Diet, but they are too expensive. All of the DGB Diet meals have to be under $2.00.
Food #75: Jimmy Dean D-lights
These Jimmy Dean D-lights sandwiches taste like the fast food breakfast sandwiches, but they are much healthier. The magazine suggests the Canadian Bacon variety, but I prefer the Turkey Sausage kind. These sandwiches are made with lean meats, egg-whites, low-fat cheese, and whole-wheat English muffins. They are high in protein. Jimmy Dean D-lights are also inexpensive and a part of the Don’t Go Broke Diet.
I did not like all of the food selections, but one in particular bothered me.
Food #33: Accelerade
Accelerade is a sports drink with protein in it. The average guy should only drink a sports drink if he is working out in the heat for an extended period of time. And, if you do need a sports drink, you do not need an expensive sports drink. Accelerade is like Gatorade with 4 grams of whey protein added. Whey protein is the best protein, but 4 grams of it should not increase the cost by that much.
Most of the food selections on this list are great options for overall health and weight loss. The list is intended for men, but women could benefit as well.
