How to choose a diet for men

In the availability of diets like Atkin diet, cottage cheese diets, cabbage diets and other celebrity diets, how can one decide which is the best diet for men. Many people do not know that not all diets work for men. This article would help you to understand the difference between a men's diet and women's diet. Using this information, you would be able to find out the right lean diet that incorporates bodybuilding food items. This article provides you with an overview of how to choose a diet for men.

The good news

You would be happy to learn that men have a higher metabolic rate compared to women. Moreover, the tendency to store fat is less in men. Hence, it is easier to devise a diet for men. The core problem is that while men have a higher fat-burning rate, they tend to store fat in the abdominal area. This accounts for the apple-shaped look of the middle region. Men with bigger abdomens are prone to diabetes, coronary heart diseases and other ailments related to obesity.

Drop the ego

Men often mock at the idea of dieting. They nurse the myth that dieting is meant for the fairer race, or women. At the same time, it is also important to understand that men need more calories. In order to find good diet plans for men, the first step is to find your BMI or Body Mass Index. Based on your BMI, you can understand and compute your calorie needs.

Analyse your existing diet

If you look at your diet closely, you can easily figure out the foodstuffs that are contributing to excess calories. For example, beer is a favorite to men. A small can of regular beer has as many as 150 calories! By avoiding beer and alcohol, you can reduce the intake of calories. Fitness magazines and websites offer free diet tips. Make it a habit to read about nutrition, weight loss and fitness. The more you read, the more you will learn. Expensive fitness machines would not help you to lose weight. Nutrition is the key to losing weight and gaining muscle. In the absence of a healthy diet plan, weight loss exercises would not be productive. Green vegetables, low-fat cheese and milk, fish, lean meat and complex carbohydrates help lose weight.
