Feeding your body the right kinds of food is vital for a healthy lifestyle and aiding you in achieving your fitness goals. Here are some more power foods suggested by MensHealth that you should be eating regularly.
Wholemeal High Bran Bagels
Why? They're loaded with fibre, which keeps your digestive system healthy and stunts any mid-afternoon hunger pangs. The seeds are a good source of protein and essential fatty acids to help muscle growth.
Baby Leaf Spinach
Why? It protects your entire cardio-vascular system. A handful of the stuff will give you half your RDA of folate, which fends off depression and keeps your sperm count high.
Why? A 2006 study published in the Journal Of The American Medical Association found that the hearty benefits of eating oily fish twice a week far outweighed the risks of consuming low levels of mercury in the feisty fish. So get stuck in.
Why? Avocados have 60% more potassium – an electrolyte lost during exercise – than bananas. They are also rich in B vitamins which will help keep your wits up and your trouser size down, as well as vitamin C and vitamin E.
Why? This cancer basher is loaded with vitamin C: that's C for collagen which will help your body form strong tendons, ligaments and bone tissue after it has been lifting weights. Plus the abundance of lycopene can cut your risk of prostate cancer. Season with half a lemon and black pepper.
