Admit it, guys; you enjoy sneaking the odd square of chocolate after a tough day at the office just as much as your girlfriend does. Well, the good news is you no longer need to feel guilty about this particular guilty pleasure. Chocolate has this stuff in it called flavorless, which can help reduce cardiovascular risk by 11% and stroke risk by 23%. Not a fan of the dark stuff? These benefits also apply to those who prefer milk chocolate. Tap out at 100g a day – everything in moderation, gents.
Eating Red Meat
No, red meat is not bad for you. Repeat, red meat is not bad for you. Each juicy, delicious morsel is packed with stuff your rig desperately needs. Iron, zinc, protein, Vitamins A, B, C, the list goes on. What parts of your body will benefit? Oh, just your eyes, bones, teeth, nervous system, muscles, the whole thing really. It’s pretty much a one-stop shop for nutrients and it tastes like… heaven. So load up your plate with 3-4 palm-sized portions of red meat like Beef and Lamb each week, and chow down.
Listening To Loud Music
Turn that dial up to 11, guys. Listening to loud music is good for your health. Yes, there’s a part of our brains that responds positively to acoustic vibrations (in much the same way that other parts of our brains respond positively to sex and food) and stimulating it makes us happy. The ideal volume here is 30 decibels, so crank that new Metallica album up to roughly that level and feel yourself getting happier and healthier with each face-melting track.
Simply put, coffee gets a bad rap. There are actually so many health benefits to throwing back a few cups each day that it’s surprising so many health nuts still turn their noses up at regular coffee drinkers. Your morning kick-starter helps with gallstones, Type II diabetes and heart disease, and may reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s and serve to delay the onset of Parkinson’s. Yeah, in short, keep drinking it.
