Men and women alike tend to struggle in finding the right healthy meal plans. Today I will discuss healthy meal plans for men, and I will provide some men with some concrete information on how to ensure health for the long run.
Many people are often confused as to why men can eat so much more than women. It is proven that men tend to have more lean mass than women, and because of this, it allows men to consume more calories than women. However, this does not mean that it is OK for men to eat fast-food every day or eat a chocolate bar for every snack.
Because men tend to have a higher amount of lean mass, this often means that men have a higher basal metabolic rate than women. This allows men to consume more calories without the drastic weight fluctuations that many women struggle with.
