Keeping up with the ever-changing advice for optimum dietary health can be exhausting. It never seems to stop changing and we can easily end up confused about what’s good for us and what isn’t. Obviously, we know that having fry-ups three times a day isn’t going to end well, but some of the other tips contradict each other or seem to be in a constant state of flux, so it becomes nigh on impossible to know where you stand. Sometimes, the only thing for it is to calm down and relax by booking a wonderful session of male massage London. But while that’s a brilliant thing and sure to help keep you in good condition, it’s not the same thing as knowing what to eat and what not to eat. So let’s look at some of the myths that have been circulating on and off for years and see if we can clear up some of the confusion.

Male Massage and Food Myths

Fat. Fat’s really been through the wringer over the years. From the seventies onwards, we were warned to give it as wide a berth as possible and at the same time supermarkets heralded the arrival of an array of low-fat products. But the fact is that fat doesn’t make you fat (despite the name) and many low-fat products (e.g. fruit yoghurts) are stuffed to the gills with sugar. Of course, a daily diet of fatty meat isn’t good for you, but getting the right kind of fats (oily fish, avocados, full-fat, natural yoghurt, nuts, butter), without eating them to excess, is good for you.

Meat. Meat’s reputation has also taken a drubbing over the years and we’re frequently advised to forgo it altogether in order to have a happier healthier life. But do we really need to do that? Well. If it’s processed meat you’ve got a taste for, then yes, it’s time to say goodbye to it. It’s not good for you and has been linked to all sorts of ailments. Unprocessed meat, properly cooked, including red meat, is bursting with vits, minerals and – of course – protein. Having it about once a week will do you the world of good.

Eggs. First we were told to eat as many as we liked. Then they were linked to cholesterol problems and we were told to be careful. Then Delia said we could have up to six a week. But who was right? Well, eggs don’t contribute to the bad kind of cholesterol that can lead to heart problems. Yes, they contain cholesterol but it’s the more benign kind that actually does us good. Today, the thinking is that we don’t need to worry at all, even if we’re having three a day. That’s what you might call eggs-ellent news and something to talk about the next time you’re having male massage London.
