Men’s diet: Foods to improve your looks
Sunday, 17 Apr 2011


Your fridge contains the anti ageing formula you have been searching for. You can affect the way you look by what you eat. Adding a few varied ingredients to your diet is easy, practical and an inexpensive way to improve your looks (brightening your eyes, preventing hair loss and clearing up your skin). Below are the foods that can transform you someone’s attractive boyfriend or dinner date.


Spinach makes your muscles more efficient. It is rich in the carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin, compounds that can keep the whites of your eyes clear. Spinach is great in salads and curries, among other things.


These ever-ready sources of energy often make the quickest and easiest late-night dinners – eggs on buttered toast or stuffed into a loaf of bread are the choices for a satisfying snack. Eggs are high in iron, which can help prevent hair loss and also in sulfur which helps keep your hair soft and smooth.

Grab a pre-made pizza base and spread on some tomato sauce (not ketchup). Slap on loads of baby spinach and make a little nest in the middle. Crack in an egg, grate over loads of Parmesan and season with plenty of black pepper; bake on high for 10 minutes till the pizza is golden and the egg yolk is still runny.


Banana keeps your skin nice and elastic. Try this experiment; gently pinch the skin on the back of your wrist. Pull it up and release. The quicker it goes back, the more elastic it is. Things like smoking cigarettes do loads of damage to the elasticity in your skin.


A well groomed and healthy man is the one with good nails, teeth, hair and clean ears. So, don’t overlook the importance of nail health. Make sure (a) you’re getting enough water in your diet and (b) you’re getting enough protein. A varied diet full of lots of fruit and vegetables, particularly the brightly coloured ones, is integral to maintaining those boyish good looks. A turkey soup would be a great starting point as you’ll be taking in liquids as well. Try a Thai-style fiery Tom Yum with shredded turkey. The chilies will leave you buzzing from the endorphins, too.


Guavas are high in antioxidants to counteract the free radicals that cause skin damage and leave you looking prematurely old. You actually don’t even need to eat it if you aren’t a fan. Just squish the flesh into submission and rub it on your skin — but wash it off before you go out to town. They’re also rich in vitamin C, containing five times as much as orange.
