What to expect
‘The book every middle-aged man who wants to look after their health should read’ Max Pemberton, medical doctor, journalist and author
‘Finally a book that tackles what men should be eating . . . Men of all ages will find this book incredibly beneficial’ Dr Ellie Cannon, NHS doctor and resident GP for the Mail on Sunday
ManFood is the definitive guide, tailored for men, on how to enhance their health easily and practically through their nutritional choices.
If there was a way to eat that meant you could slow ageing, lose weight AND prevent illness, wouldn’t you do it?
Genetics and family history combine with our lifestyles and contribute to overall health, and the results show that men have significantly increased chances of experiencing various diseases. There are of course multiple factors that contribute to the development of disease, but we do know that nutrition is a powerful ally in reducing the risk. Now is your chance to make simple changes to your diet to ensure a longer, healthier, happier life.
Drawing on the latest clinical research, award-winning nutritionist Ian Marber provides simple food swaps, myth-busting facts, and scientific evidence on how consuming certain foods can reduce your risk of prostate cancer, heart disease, diabetes, dementia and more.
ManFood makes eating well easy, so you can boost your health and feel energised.
‘This is just what the doctor ordered – Ian Marber has written the book every middle-aged man who wants to look after their health should read. It’s the perfect antidote to the myths and misunderstandings that surround diet and health these days and gives men sound, evidence-based advice and tips. An excellent and much-needed book.’
Dr Max Pemberton, journalist and writer
‘Finally, a book that tackles what men should be eating and how they can improve their health through food! For years the focus has been on everyone else. Now Ian has taken all that we know to be sensible and valuable about our nutrition and tailor-made it for men and their specific health problems. Men of all ages will find this book incredibly beneficial.’
Dr Ellie Cannon, NHS doctor and resident GP for the Mail on Sunday
‘There is an abundance of books on diet and nutrition available, each claiming to provide the ultimate panacea diet or promote the next health-food fad. ManFood differs in several important ways. It provides a logical and common-sense approach to the physiology of nutrition and the impact of our diets on our health. And, crucially, ManFood dispels the many myths behind supplements promoted as beneficial for men, by examining the scientific evidence for these claims. All aspects of men’s health are covered, from the role of testosterone, through heart and gut health, to managing sensible and simple dietary changes and meal plans. ManFood is a book that finally gives men an authoritative text on evidence-based food claims, on how to eat healthily without gimmicks, and, most importantly, all expressed in the context of men’s well-being.’
