|Are you a food offender?|
Men's Health nutritionists raid the refrigerators of five single men.
Mr Hype and Hoopla
Expert's Verdict: With the exception of eggs and yoghurt, the contents in his fridge are fairly unhealthy. Be it the aerated drinks, packaged garlic paste, or the lack of fresh produce except for tomatoes. The variety of relishes and tapenedes increase the carb count while lowering fibre content, making it even more difficult to keep the weight in control.
Mr Wine and dine
Expert's Verdict: Loaded with superfoods (chia, honey, pomegranate, aged cheese, yoghurt) and foods rich in antioxidants (wine and fruits), Ghayi is a connoisseur of good food. He's got the sources of fat (Spanish olives) and omega 3 and cholesterol lowering fibre (chia seeds) right too. While honey fights pathogens and infections, primadophilus, a probiotic can ensure protection from a host of diseases and chronic inflammation. A great source of electrolytes and natural sugars, comes coconut water. A well-stocked fridge makes eating at home a breezy affair.
Mr Gluten intolerant
Expert's Verdict: Who said real men don't eat healthy! Except for the barbecue sauce and thousand island sauce, (replace the calorie bombs with apple cider vinegar, olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette or a yoghurt based dressing), his fridge is loaded with all the healthy essentials. The contents of his fridge show that he embraces healthy fats and protein. This guy takes pride in what he puts into his body and so should you.
Mr Nut Cracker
Expert's Verdict: Nakul hit the bull's eye with foods that boost workout performance and alleviate muscle soreness. Healthy eating doesn't have to be painful and the contents in Nakul's fridge show that it is possible to avoid binging on high cal food. Remember out of sight is out of mind, so de-clutter your fridge and put healthy foods in your line of sight; you'll be more likely to stick to the latter.
Mr Instant Trouble
Expert's Verdict: The tomatoes and pomegranates are great sources of fibre, vitamins and antioxidants, but that does not discredit the packaged Apple and Cranberry juice or the jam, all of which add to the waistline and increase the risk of heart disease and diabetes. Instead, juice your veggies and eat your fruit with the fibre intact for maximum benefits.
