The right diet for a man over thirty
The recommended diet for a woman and a man are different. A man’s diet is more caloric (2200-2600 kcal), depending on the level of physical activity, and is composed mostly of foods that will help prevent common ailments faced by males, such as high stress, hypertension, decreased libido, prostate problems, and heart and stomach problems.
Any food that improves circulation and the functioning of the circulatory system helps with erection problems and has a positive effect on the quality of sexual life. The introduction of appropriate foods to your diet will also help you cope with other health and fitness issues, for example, fat deposits around the waist, stomach, and thighs.
Remember, however, that being over a certain age does not mean that you have to stick to a strict diet from now on. The most important thing is the balance between healthy eating and physical activity. If you make basic changes to your life, you’ll notice a major difference.

The male diet would not be complete without oily fish (salmon, tuna, sardines, mackerel, eel, halibut), which are good sources of Omega-3 fatty acids. They are good for the heart, cardiovascular system, and immune system. Omega-3 acids have anti-inflammatory benefits and lower triglycerides in the blood.
Eggs are a rich source of amino acids as well as Vitamins A, E, D, K, and B and minerals such as phosphorus, potassium, sodium, calcium, iron, magnesium, copper, zinc, and selenium. The benefits of eating eggs are innumerable.
