Must-Read: Healthiest Foods for Guys
Heading to the grocery store, especially if you’re on a diet or trying to eat healthy, can be a terribly unexciting proposition. With every little purchase you put into your cart, you first have to take a few moments to look at the back of the box to see if it’s too high in whatever-the-hell and too low in oh-for-the-love-of-god. And then to know if that’s either low or high, in whatever ingredients you’re looking at, you have to look at a few other options, the back of those boxes, and make a split second decision (because, c’mon, you don’t want to be there all day) before giving it the ol’ thumbs up or thumbs down and sticking it in your cart.
Which is all to say: Whew. It sucks when you’re actually trying to be healthy. Luckily, as this is the Internet, some folks have already done a lot of our work for us when it comes to knowing what is healthy for us men and what is not. So we’re heading over at Men’s Health where they go through a list of the 125 best foods for men.
