Healthy Diets for Men – Lunch

Your breakfast is the most important meal of your day as it fuels your body after a night of sleep (aka fasting) and you should have gotten some great ideas from the several recipes I gave you in Healthy Diets for Men. And now? Well the time most guys usually fail in their diet plan is a healthy lunch, mostly because they didn’t prepare enough the night before.

Should you have had a good hearty snack between breakfast and lunch? The answer is an absolute YES! Without a doubt you should have had something like a protein smoothie to keep your hunger in check and continue supplying essential amino acids to your muscles. For a recommendation on whey protein check out the top selling protein in the market – Optimum 100% Whey Gold Standard.

But I digress, I will include an entire article on healthy snacks for men in the near future that not only taste good but will definitely keep you on track for building lean muscle.
