If you know the foods that are good for you and you are already adding them to your diet, then good for you. Unfortunately, not a lot of men know the right foods to eat and would default to eating steaks, meats, processed foods, and more.
Today, I am going to go over some of the foods that men should never eat, period. But do you know something that you should always take? The best multivitamins for men.
Anyway, let’s get on with the article.
Now, I know what you are thinking. You’re probably protesting why I included this in the list, but hear me out.
Cheese is not at all that bad, but only if you are eating the right kinds of cheese. Goats cheese, for example, is a healthy alternative to cow cheeses.
If you really love cheeses, only consume them in moderation.
2. Packed/Processed Foods
I know that they’re pretty convenient and you might be indulging them back in your college days, but processed foods, in general, should be avoided as they are devoid of nutrition and can prove to be detrimental to your overall health.
Mi Goreng, a popular processed food by college students, is jam-packed with sodium. In addition, it is not nutrient-rich at all.
You might think that this is a mistype, but it actually isn’t. Alcohol, when consumed in moderate doses, is perfectly fine. However, when did you ever stop drinking after two shots?
Excessive alcohol consumption may lead to a whole host of problems, including liver cirrhosis and pancreatitis.
4. Junk Foods
Ah, junk foods. They are pretty much a staple in a kid’s diet but it certainly does not have a place for an adult’s meal plan.
Sure, they are tasty, delicious, and are readily available, but are these conveniences worth it for your overall health?
Junk foods are loaded with trans and saturated fats, as well as sugar and sodium too.
Definitely avoid them like the plague.
I used to have an unhealthy relationship with a soda back when LAN parties were a thing. I used to drink more than 4 liters a day and I’ve regretted that decision ever since.
Sodas are packed with sugar and other harmful ingredients and if consumed in copious amounts for longer periods of time, it can lead to obesity and type-2 diabetes, among other health conditions.
I am going to get backlash for this but I want you to hear what I have to say. Coffee, in general, is not bad. In fact, it has plenty of documented health benefits. But, as we consume more and more coffee, our body tends to develop a caffeine tolerance. This just means that if you want to experience the same level of energy, you will need to drink more and more.
This excess coffee consumption can lead to stress and irritability in men and women. If anything, limit your consumption to just 2-3 cups a day.
There might be some people that advocate the consumption of soybeans and, to some extent, they do provide some health benefits. My only gripe with soybeans is that they contain phytoestrogen, which can lead to poor sexual performance in men.
