5 Best Foods For Real Men to Eat

Men, wouldn't it be great to eat just the right foods and have bulges in all the right places? You might just be able to do that if you follow the advice of Dr. Steven Lamm, author of "The Hardness Factor: How to Achieve Your Best Health and Sexual Fitness at Any Age."

He says there are five specific foods that should be a staple of every man's diet. They're not only healthy, but also they will increase male stamina, he told The New York Post.

This is a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, which help lower triglyceride levels and blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart disease and cancer. Eat wild salmon two to four times a week. Don't like salmon? Go for Alaskan halibut, canned albacore tuna, sardines, herring, trout, sea bass or clams.

This is the premier antioxidant, defending the body against heart disease and cancer, while helping to maintain youthful, healthy skin. Eat 1 to 2 cups a day. When blueberries aren't in season, eat cranberries, raspberries, strawberries, cherries, currants and purple grapes.

Popeye was right! Packed with vitamins, minerals and folic acid, spinach helps lower the risk of cardiovascular diseases, a variety of cancers, age-related macular degeneration, and cataracts. Eat 1 cup of steamed spinach or 2 cups of raw spinach a day. Don't like it? Then eat kale, collards, Swiss chard, bok choy, romaine lettuce, mustard or turnip greens.

Nuts--from almonds to walnuts--are rich in the right kind of fat. They're also packed with arginine, an amino acid that helps keep arteries clear. Recent studies found that consuming 5 ounces of nuts a week can cut the risk of heart attack by one-third.

It's not your imagination. You really do feel good eating chocolate. Why? It contains phenylethylamine, the same pleasure-producing chemical that is released when we fall in love. Choose dark chocolate because it's packed with high levels of a type of antioxidant called flavonoids that help maintain a healthy heart and good circulation to reduce blood clotting, which can lead to a heart attack or stroke.

Lamm also recommends bananas, grapes, poultry, tuna fish, avocado and peanuts for improving vascular health. "Anything that helps your heart is going to help your sex life," he told Newsweek.
