5 things you MUST be eating…

Over the past several months, I’ve been more and more conscious about what I put into my body and also working out and making sure I just follow simple rules that don’t make me feel like I am dieting or on some sort of fitness regiment.  One magazine that I read pretty religiously is Men’s Health, although I know that I am a long way from looking like any of the fit guys in the magazine it provides me with tons of great nutrition articles, as well as fitness exercises that break up the same ol same ol workouts at the gym.  Here’s one of the recent articles that I read on foods that you MUST be eating, I found it helpful and hope you do to. Also if you have any additional foods that have helped you lose weight or fight that hunger bug…please share!

And for more great ways to stay full and lose weight, pick up a copy of The Men’s Health Diet today!It combines the latest findings in exercise and nutrition with practical how-to-advice that will transform your body into a fat-burning machine.

Almonds

Along with 6 grams of protein, a handful (1 ounce) of almonds contains almost 9 grams of healthy monounsaturated fat.

Oatmeal

You can thank the 4 grams of fiber in a 1-cup serving for this breakfast staple’s stick-to-your-ribs quality.

Salmon

A 3.5-ounce serving contains 22 grams of protein and is a top source of omega-3 fats.

 

Quinoa cooks up like any grain, but it contains the same type of muscle-building protein found in eggs and meat. For 10 ways to prepare quinoa, go to menshealth.com/quinoa.

 

Black Beans

All legumes provide a ton of nutrients, but black beans lead the pack with equal amounts of protein and fiber—15 grams in a cup. They’re a great addition to almost any salad.

Also make sure and check out Men’s Health for your Ipad….super cool to be able to have several magazines when you’re traveling on your device and not have to carry them all around with you…
