To really optimize a healthy diet plan for men, you should follow the 40/40/20 rule. It means you should consume 40 percent protein, 40 percent carbohydrates and 20 percent fat.


Fat blob

Around 70 percent of American men are overweight or obese, and a lot of this excess flab is found on or around the belly.


Yellow spice

Turmeric, the spice that makes curry yellow, is loaded with curcumin, a chemical with potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.


Magic seasoning

For quick and handy seasoning while cooking, keep on hand a large shaker containing six parts of salt and one of pepper.


Chilling wine

To cool wine, quarter-fill an icebucket with ice, then sprinkle heavily with salt and top up to half-full with cold water.

The salt will reduce the temperature of the ice/water well below freezing, while the water allows close thermal contact with the glass/plastic.


Artificial sweeteners are toxic

Avoid artificial sweeteners (especially Splenda). These are most often consumed in Crystal Light, diet sodas and ‘sugar-free’ products.

Think of them as toxins (because they are) that slow down your body’s metabolism. Drink plenty of water.


Avoiding aggressiveness

Drink plenty of water and eat small, nutritious snacks. Hunger and dehydration, even before you’re aware of them, can provoke aggressiveness and exacerbate feelings of anxiety and stress.


Think about food

Think about your food before you eat: "Why am I eating this?’ ‘Do I really need this?" This will help you focus on eating enough to keep you moving, and choosing foods that will give you prolonged energy.


Never skip breakfast

The morning is when your body really needs calories – and if you don’t eat, it will break down your muscles to get them.

Also, if you skip the a.m. meal, you’ll build steam until lunch, when your body will go into full-tilt "famine mode" and you’ll devour everything in sight.


Great source of antioxidants

Grape juice is a great source of antioxidant polyphenols, which maintains the elasticity of the skin and prevents sagging of the skin.
