What are good healthy diet plans for men?

Does anyone know of any good healthy diet plans for men. A healthy diet plan that is not boring and has many varieties of food.

admin answers:

First thing you need to understand about your diet is too much sugar in your blood will make you fat no matter what diet you are on or how much you work out. Too many ketones in your blood will prevent you from using the sugar in your blood as energy. Too few ketones in your blood will cause you to burn your blood glucose off too fast. So you need to eat small portions of carbs and protein about every 3 hours.
Another thing to know is that trans fat, hydrogenated oil and polyunsaturated fat causes type 2 diabetes. To raise your metabolism stop eating ANYTHING that has these in them. Polyunsaturated fat is ok in small quantities now and them. Also Cholesterol is a key thing. Bad cholesterol is high in red meats, dark meats, pork and even turkey and chicken breast. These types of cholesterol get inside the cell and clog it up. This prevents the cell from being able to accept sugar and burn it off. Where as the trans fats and hydrogenated oils form plaque on top of the cell wall and prevents insulin from being to stick to the cell therefore preventing sugar from being absorbed by the cell. These are the things that lower your metabolism rate as you get older and lead to heart disease and diabetes. To avoid this simply avoid these fats and cholesterols.
Any modified food starch, flour, enriched flour, corn starch, potato starch, high fructose syrups etc. All will raise your blood sugar levels higher and faster than pure sugar will. So watch out for things that say “lite” and “sugar free” and “diet”. Many of these things use these to elevate your blood sugars and keep you addicted by tricking you into thinking they are better for you than stuff with sugar in it. That is not to say that sugar is good for you but it is better for you than modified food starch for sure.
You will want to eat 2 green apples a day. The high level of soluble fiber and high level of pectin in them help slow the uptake of sugar into your blood stream. Also lots of green leafy vegetables will provide you with nutrients you need while slowing your sugar uptake. Never eat a carb without eating a protein with it. Never eat any carb that is a simple carb or has a hi glycemic index i.e. Corn, potatoes, bread.
Bread is ok if you get 100% whole grain with no additives or preservatives. In fact, this is a necessity. Real peanut butter with no trans fat and no additives is an awesome complex carb. Pecans are magical on blood sugar levels. Eat a handful and if your blood sugar is too high they will lower it. If it is too low they will raise it. And pecans will sustain your blood sugar levels for hours.
You want to have a 3:1 ratio of omega 3 fatty acids to omega 6 fatty acids. So fish without lots of mercury and olive oil for cooking is a must. Flax seeds are also good.
Taking about 10mg of a supplement called MDM, vitamin c, calcium, vitamin D and b12 are all great for making the cell walls more elastic which will raise your metabolism, help rid your body of plaque, and lessen your need for insulin. Another great trick is using about a half table spoon of cinnamon per day. Cinnamon actually has a chemical in it that acts like insulin and reduces the risk of diabetes and speeds up your metabolism.
You want to eat red meat at least once a week and at most a few times a week. Chicken is something to eat at least a few times a week but not more than once a day. Cod, Tilapia and Salmon are the meats of necessity.
Oatmeal is good for slowing the digestive process also, but it also burns off fast into sugar and spikes the blood sugar good. So it is important to not eat more than half a serving at a time and eat it with pecans and protein. Preferably egg whites cooked in olive oil with salsa or fresh veggies.
Greek yogurt is awesome for digestion and low in sugars. SILK is an awesome source of protein and carbs verses high sugar milk (11gm per serving = 1cup, not glass).
Make sure you watch all your pre mixed cooking spices. Most of them have modified food starch.
Beans are a great complex carb. If you are going to eat a potato try to limit to half of a red potato tops before working out. Not all fruits are good. Green apples, grapefruit are awesome. Oranges are borderline and most other fruits are high in fructose. Avoid granny smith apples though. Those are horrible on the glycemic index. Broccoli is a must.

Sharon asks…

Can someone give me a diet plan for men?

my boyfriend wants to eat better and I can tell him whats good and bad but I’m not sure how much of what he should be eating at certian meals cuze I know its different for guys and girls…could you help me?

admin answers:

Its pretty much universal for men and women, only difference is you increase portion sizes slightly and replace some cardio with lifting. Men also need more protein so more chicken, fish and eggs

eat less more often
eat lots of fiber and drink lots of water
eat breakfast
dont eat within 3 hours of sleep

run an hr each day at a steady pace without any breaks

do jumping jacks or anything that will increase your heart rate right after you wake up

get up to go to the bathroom around for 5 minutes every hour

don’t eat foods with more than 20-30% calories from fat

get 8 hrs of sleep

do as much cardio as you can for as long as you can. The longer your body is deprived of oxygen while excercising (cardio) the more ATP and glucose it will burn up. Once u run out of ATP it then burns glucose and once youre out of that, fat.

Ken asks…

Can anyone suggest a website with an effective weight loss/workout/diet plan for men?

I need to lose a sizable amount of weight safetly and effectively but need some guidance from someone (or a website) with detailed instructions. Would prefer a program that someone has personally experienced and had success with.

admin answers:

Here is a place that reviews a bunch of weight loss programs, dieting aides, supplements and so on. The site even has categories like diabetes, low fat and hypnosis. Pretty cool site.

Http://www.reviewplace.com/cat-135-DietsWeightLoss–Top-10-Weight-Loss-Programs.html

Many of the programs listed have consumer reviews, so you can read what others think of the different programs before you decide on one for yourself.

Hope this helps – good luck to you!

Keep your metabolism high

James asks…

Whats with metabolism ?

admin answers:

One very important thing is to keep your metabolism high, meaning eating all day. Sounds wierd but eating all day can make you lose fat.

The trick is to eat the right foods at the right time. As soon as you wake up in the morning you need protein and carbohydrates(fuel and building blocks) these, when consumed will bring your body out of catabolic state.

Fasting overnight for several hours while sleeping depletes your body’s glycogen reserves(your last meal) and your body will start to slow down your metabolism and actually start to break down your own muscle(catabolic) and use it as fuel. Your muscles are a liability to your body in a catabolic state.

Meaning your muscles require large amounts of energy, even at rest, your body will try to conserve energy by reducing muscle mass, thus reducing the calories needed to fuel your body. Eating protein rich food along with a good source of carbohydrates refuels your body, kickstarts your metabolism and stops the catabolic process(muscle breakdown).

Its best to exercise about 1 or 2 hours after eating, this gives time for your body to digest the food and fuel up.

Now, during your workout you deplete your glycogen reserves again, thus restarting the catabolic process. Wait until after your workout, immediately after your workout to drink that protein shake, along with some fast digesting carbs.

Some people use dextrose or maltodextrin or both. I use real food like instant rice for carbs and egg whites for protein as these are digested quite quickly, not as quickly as whey and dextrose/maltodextrin but I like real food, lay off the fat here because it slows down digestion which is not what you want at this time.This again stops the catabolic process and also starts chemical reactions that stimulate your body to repair and build more muscle.

Muscle burns calories, alot of calories, your body doesnt really want more muscle because you will need to eat more food to keep them, more protein.

Now, you need to eat again about 1.5 hours later because that protein shake is digested so fast that it only lasts about 1 hour, you need real food now, again more protein and more carbs to stimulate muscle growth, slower digesting protein and carbs are preferred now to fuel and repair and build your body over a longer period.

Chicken and brown rice works great, dont forget veggies for vitamins throughout the day. Before you go to sleep drink milk or eat cheese, cottage cheese is best, because they contain a very slow digesting protein called casein, this will protect your muscles most of the night, but remember to eat protein and carbs again when you wake up to stop that catabolic process again.

Never workout unless you have eaten, or else your body will breakdown your muscles much sooner than if you did eat. Staying hydrated is very important, digesting food and building muscle requires water. 5 or 6 meals a day every 3 hours will keep your metabolism up, thus burning more calories throughout the day, even at rest.

Rest is important between workouts. I was working out for almost 2 months with no results, I was exercising before I ate and I didnt know about anything about preworkout or post workout nutrition. Ive been eating properly pre and post worrkout for only 2 workouts and there is noticeable gain in muscle mass already.

Navigate into Supersite and look in the left menu for “nutrition” click this and look for pre workout and post workout nutrition. I am soooo happy I found this site or my workouts will have been in vain.

admin answers:

Not really the best idea in my opinion. Our bodies need a balanced diet to function properly and it doesn’t sound like you’re getting that. Www.mypyramid.gov offers a lot of useful information on correct portion size and incorporating all the food groups into your diet.

How to burn belly fat quick ?

i need help with trying to lose these rolls i have on my stomach im not fat but my stomach makes me look like im pregnant and im not, i have like 2 rolls and fat on my lower abdomen which makes my jeans fit a little tooooo snugg ! PLEASE PLEASE help, i need some exercise routines or some MIRACLE foods =/

admin answers:

Hi dear,
follow these guidelines to get rid of belly fat
– Start exercising. Getting a flat stomach involves losing belly fat. To achieve this, start a workout routine. If possible, exercise for at least 30 minutes a day. If this isn’t possible, strive to exercise for at least 90 minutes a week – running, power walking, swimming or biking.
– Strengthen the core muscles. In conjunction with losing belly fat, choose workouts that exercise the core muscles. Effective workouts include dancing, pilates, crunches, and knee and leg lifts. For the best result, keep your abdominal muscles tight during core workouts.
– Improve your diet. Bad eating habits can impede weight loss efforts. Eliminate fatty foods and sugary foods from your diet. Choose lean meats, fresh fruits and vegetables, and eat no more than 130 grams of carbs a day.
– Eliminate alcoholic beverages from your diet. Drinking more than two alcoholic beverages a day can raise cortisol levels in the body and decrease the metabolism. Cortisol increases hunger, and a slower metabolism makes it harder to burn fat and calories – especially in the abdomen.
– Drink plenty of water. Water flushes excess sodium and fluids from your body, which can help you achieve a flat stomach. Additionally, drinking water fills your stomach quicker, and you’re less likely to overeat.
– Control stress. Being stressed or feeling anxious can also release high levels of cortisol. In addition to increasing appetite, this hormone redistributes fat to the abdomen. Learn how to control or reduce stress. Practice breathing exercises, workout or get a massage.
– Reduce abdominal bloating. A low-fiber diet and certain foods can produce abdominal bloating. This prevents a flat stomach. Increase your fiber intake to fight bloating, and limit trigger foods such as beans, raw vegetables, lactose and starches. Take a digestive enzyme tablet to eliminate bloating.

Good Luck

admin answers:

‘ Pumping Iron’ diet for nearly ALL the top guys of that era was a high protein,very low carb plan with a once a week (Sunday) anything they wanted feed – and that turned out the greats – Arnie,Coe,Zane,Padilla,Draper etc
basically this forces the body to melt the storage fat due to the absence of the carbs,then the Sunday eat whatever day refilled the glycogen level so this reloaded their muscle with carbs and their pumps came back when they returned to the gym AND the low carb /high protein plan on Monday,it worked extremely well,so why not try it yourself…
