Hello doctor,

What are all the foods men should eat every day? Kindly name them. Why they should eat it? Why men specifically should be eating those foods daily due to unique and common health issues the gender faces. i.e. men tend to be low on fiber and this packs X grams of fiber per serving.

An example of how the reader could eat the food every day (add to smoothies, toss in a salad, afternoon snack, etc.). Please comment on why men should eat it.



Welcome to

Men can take: Berries which are good to heart, steak prepared with lean meat to give full of protein especially for active men, dark leafy greens to get fiber and Folic Acid for proper functioning of metabolism.

Eggs to provide lutein for boosting brain function plus preventing a cardiovascular accident in the future, bananas provide full of minerals especially potassium, broccoli will protect from prostate cancer. Water to keep well hydrated especially active men. Olive oil to prevent cardiovascular events and stabilizing blood lipid levels.

For breakfast, whole-grain toast with two boiled eggs with a glass of water. For snack take one banana. For lunch, broccoli, carrot and salt with olive oil, lean meat soup. For an evening snack, berries smoothie. For dinner, yogurt with dark leafy greens and olive oil salad.

This is what I recommend to my patients. Normally to change every day, not the same menu.
