What are the principles of diets for men?

Dieting isn't just something women do. Many men struggle with weight loss, the big question is should they do anything different to try and lose weight?

Dieting

Before any diet of exercise regime change to your lifestyle please consult a GP The principles for a man to lose weight are exactly the same as with a woman. You always need to start with the question "What do you want to achieve from this weight loss?" If someone wants to be muscular and ripped, then the dieting and training regime attached would be totally different to someone who just wants to lose a bit of body fat. Food nutrition is essential for both of these. The whole ethos behind a diet is to essentially starve your body into losing weight. It just depends on how severe you want to make this. A sensible diet for anyone is to make sure you fuel the body for the activities in the day ahead at breakfast. So, whether you're going to be working at a desk job or on a building site you need to fuel your body accordingly. You'll also need to take into account if you're likely to be training that day or not. If you don't fuel your body correctly at breakfast, you could find during the day that you'll feel an energy lull and possibly want to snack. Get it right and cut out the snacking which is an issue in its own right and have the energy to power on with your daily routine. A healthy diet for men should consist of: Breakfast: Carbohydrates Lunch: Carbohydrates and protein Dinner: Protein (with carbohydrates from vegetables). No white carbohydrates The reason you don't want carbohydrates at dinner is that when you go to bed, you are not burning anything off. Your body always burns off carbohydrates before it burns fat. Therefore, fueling it with carbohydrates at night before you wake up in the morning, you are already fueled. The problem is at breakfast you are going to fuel it again. So, you end up with a pudgy mid-rift because you are
over-fueling the body. Once you've got the right diet in place for you, the next step to losing weight is exercise.

Training

This is the next stage of weight loss and is really quite important in its own right. Nobody wants to lose weight and end up with folds of skin left behind. To change, this exercise will help. Try to speak to a gym instructor for more information about this. However, any sessions you do should consist of cardiovascular work (run,bike,swim) to build fitness and initially resistance work building into weights to tone. Good Luck!
