Exercise and Fitness Regimen For Men: Healthy Food
Breaking sweat with fastest and toughest
Fitness is not easy, many do not attempt this
exercise and training schedule because it is tough to maintain. Athletes and
those training for a sports meet
however have a different target to meet. Their
bodies need more stamina and more nutrition. Here we see how to meet those
nutrition needs and why some foods are better than others.
Know your food
Food consists of proteins, carbohydrates, fats
along with essential minerals and vitamins. Normal food sources do not have all
of these. When building muscles, one has to supply a good source of proteins
that is necessary for building tissues and muscles. The body requires
carbohydrates since more energy is expended in the work out.
Prepare it without skin
to avoid fats. Chicken breast has 50 grams
of proteins for every 200 grams. It
has Selenium that helps fight cancer, apart from Vitamin B necessary for
metabolic activities in the body. Most of all, it has Zinc, the element
responsible for boosting sperm production in body.
Most of the fat present
in olive oil is monounsaturated fats that are essential for transporting
nutrients to all parts of the body and for synthesis of hormones. Saturated fats
and trans fats block the arteries increase cholesterol and lead to a host of
diseases. It has good anti-inflammatory properties.
It has loads of
anti-oxidants that help in preventing diseases like cancer. It is a stimulant
too and drinking one cup every few hours will keep you full of vigour.
Egg is a food you should eat everyday for amino acids and
choline, a vitamin. These nutrients help both muscle building and brain
development. However, the yolk is high in cholesterol.
Essential for your body, milk contains nutrients that your
body craves. If it does not get them, it begins to store fats and calcium
thinking your body is in “starvation” mode. While you do not have to swim in
milk, your daily glass helps you stay thin.
Good source of proteins, beef is rich in iron and zinc. It
also has niacin, phosphorus, selenium B12 and B6. Best eat lean meat and
body will get its nutrition without increasing cholesterol levels.
A lovely food as far as nutrition goes soy has fiber,
protein, vitamins and antioxidants, in addition to the minerals one normally
gets from fruits and vegetables. You can have soya beans prepared as curry,
tofu or make soymilk. Smoothies too are wonderful. The rich nutrients of soya
bean help in fighting diabetes, heart disease, and help in menopause therapy.
Almonds make your heart healthy and augment your digestive
system. They have high levels of Vitamin E, fiber and protein. They have
unsaturated fats that is essential for your metabolism. Though they have good
amount of calories, they do not make you fat.
Bananas simply top the list in potassium content along with
avocados. It is rich in magnesium and all exercises result in loss of these two
elements through sweat. Banana has fiber that helps slow digestion down to the
extent it helps body metabolism to absorb the food for its energy requirements
instead of storing it as fats. It has
Vitamin B6 that is used in many metabolic
activities and brain functions.
Chocolate is the king of aphrodisiac foods.
Phenylethylamine stirs the glands and makes one feel sexy. Person also begins
to feel happy a stimulated effect due to release of anandamide in the brain.
This psychoactive chemical produces the feeling of wellbeing. Orgasm triggers dopamine
release that also produces the feeling of wellbeing in the person. Cocoa also
helps in release of tryptophan that is a component of the good-feeling hormone
Oysters have long been linked to sex drive and
mattress play, more for its nutritive content than for its suggestive vagina
like appearance. It has
plenty of zinc that boosts testosterone production,
which in turn helps augment your sex drive. Whether athletes need higher
testosterone can be seen in the number of international athletes who take
testosterone boosters before an athletic meet.
Importance of keeping fit
Our body is a jointed structure dependent on
muscles, tendons, ligaments and bones. When we work, move or even rest, we
arrange this skeletal arrangement in a manner that is comfortable. However,
muscles get fatigued when the body is not physically trained. To train the body
physically, one has to exercise. Exercise and food helps build body tissue and muscles.
By physical training, we mean that we expand and
strengthen our muscles so that they become more efficient in doing work. They
do use less energy and our body becomes less tired. Eating proper food keeps
our body in prime condition. Nutritious food contains essential minerals and
vitamins along with the required proteins, carbohydrates and fats.
