Convenience and healthy foods usually don’t go hand in hand (unless, of course, you’re following the Jenny Craig program!) Generally speaking, foods that are ready to eat right off the supermarket shelf — think greasy potato chips or a sugar-laden box of cookies — typically offer little or no protection from heart disease, diabetes, or obesity. To find healthy foods for men, you need to look beyond the boxes and bags.
The foundation of your diet should be a mix of high-potency vegetables and fruits, healthy fats, and complete protein. With that in mind, we scoured the research to find foods that may not only boost men’s health, but also may support weight loss and muscle growth. So the next time you’re at the grocery store — you’ll want to load up on these 11 foods. If you’re following the Jenny Craig program, you’ll find most of these foods incorporated into your meals.
