Truth: bacon is delicious. Also true: It’s not exactly the best protein choice for a man’s diet.
Fatty meats like bacon and sausage are loaded with sodium and saturated fats, two things that have been linked to high blood pressure and heart disease. Men usually get plenty of lean protein from chicken and fish. We recommend only eating fatty meats sparingly and in moderation.
So bacon-and-eggs with the family on Saturday? Totally fine. But every day? Grab some healthy foods like oatmeal and fruit instead.
