Go with me on this one. Who says that men should have all the fun? I am often caught reading my man’s magazines or browsing them online. Men’s Health Magazine supplies me with workouts for days. The noticeable difference I have found in men’s mags versus women’s is that some have a way of cutting through the emotional clutter and telling it like it is.
I subscribe to Women’s Health Magazine (I pay for it, no endorsement, but it would be nice), and judging a book by it’s cover it appears that both Women and Men’s Health mags seem similar, and promise us flat abs. Oh, bonus.
But taking a closer look inside, there are some things that women could benefit learning from the men. Health & Fitness Lifestyle Coach Marta Montenegro breaks down, “The good in men’s diet tendencies: A look at gender differences.” She mentions a few tips worth considering:
No emotional eating: Men don’t reward themselves with food.
Eat more protein: Men have a substantially higher protein amount of breakfast.
Have a beer!:…As far as alcohol, women usually like the sweeter fruiter ones, but guys like the beer or straight hard liquor, which calorie-wise can be better.
There are exceptions to every rule, but this sounds like a page in my hus’ playbook. Men simply don’t over-think some things. Before I offend anyone, I love being a women and I fully acknowledge that our bodies and hormones are vastly different from a dude, but sometimes taking a queue from the opposite sex isn’t such a bad idea.
Any tips you have learned from the opposite sex? Would you pick up a men’s magazine?
