Handsome foods

You are what you eat! Well that’s something people just care to say but to walk the talk, that’s the real son of a bitch. If you have bought Men’s Fitness august issue, there’s an article on how the food that you eat affects you in so many ways that it’s sometimes beyond your thought that how the food that you’re munching on affects you.

This semester I’ve been assigned to conduct a forum entitled ‘HOW YOUR DIET AFFECTS YOU’ by my lecturer. This is just another perfect topic for me, but that’s another story. That’s not what I’ll talk about today. I am going to share something about what I have read from the article of the Men’s Fitness article called ‘Handsome Food’.
Well handsome foods which I'm talking about are as follow:-

1)    Broccoli

-       A study in the American Journal Of Clinical Nutrition revealed a high intake of Vitamin C was associated with a lower likelihood of wrinkles. Eating 90g of broccoli will give you 100% of your recommended daily allowance of Vitamin C, which your body needs to produce collagen, the fibrous protein that keeps your skin supple.
2)    Pomegranates

-       Ellagic acid, the natural antioxidants in pomegranates, could prevent you having the facial crevasses.  A study in the journal Experimental Dermatology revealed ellagic acid stops the destruction of collagen, the natural scaffolding that maintains your skin.
3)    Kiwi fruit

-the kiwi fruit may have sandpapery skin but its flesh can keep your complexion smooth. It contains polysaccharides, complex carbohydrates that have been shown to improve the skin’s ability to regenerate itself. A study in the journal Cellular Physiology suggested eating kiwi fruit could double the rate of collagen synthesis to keep your skin looking fresh.
4)    Olive oil 

-       Drizzling olive oil on your pasta or salad can shave years off your appearance. An international study of 2000 people revealed that subjects whose diets included regular consumption of olive oil (a great source of monounsaturated fat that is essential for healthy skin-had fewer wrinkles than those who used margarine or butter.

There you go, 4 handsome foods, remember you are what you eat! So are you ready to eat these handsome foods in order for you to be handsome? Hehehehe...
