The same basic principles for successful weight loss apply to men and women alike. There are some things that men can focus on, however, that may be more suited to their masculinity.
1) Eat a big breakfast
Stock up on good-for-you breakfast, gentleman! It will satisfy your hungry appetite and keep you going through the first part of your busy day.
2) Snack on protein
Especially if working out is important to you, protein will help you maintain and build your muscle..and if you’re on a weight-loss journey, you’re probably also trying to bulk up. Look no further than healthy nuts, high-protein yogurts, lean chicken, milk, etc.
3) Get your buddies on board
Hit the gym with your friends! It will give you the motivation and boost you need to push a little harder each time. Keep one or two informed of your eating goals and see if they’re interested in living a little healthier.
4) Cut back on the drinks
Look more to water, flavored water, coffee, and tea to satisfy your thirst.
5) Limit your carbohydrates
Eat some, but don’t overdo it. More protein, vegetables, and fruits will do your body building better good. As much as you can, make the carbs that you DO eat whole grain and whole wheat.
6) Think about what you eat
Don’t take everything that’s presented to you as a “must” eat. Be mindful of what you eat and try to avoid the high-calorie, highly-processed, unhealthy foods. Introduce the idea of healthy eating to your family if they’re not already on board.
