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.
