how to snack like a king

No longer will the word snack evoke images of Twinkies, greasy chips, or fingers flecked with Cheeto dust. This month Men’s Health is investigating the increasingly bountiful—and filling—world of healthy snacks, and we took to our social feeds to mine your top smart-snacking options. Incorporate these, along with our favorites (starting on page 37), into your rotation of midafternoon pick-me-ups. LauriPatterson/Getty (trail mix). AEyZRiO/Getty (chai).

ask the editors

HOW DO YOU show someone you love them? —Ken, Atlanta I GET A LOT OF questions every month, Ken, and most of them have pretty simple answers. “Is avocado toast really the ultimate breakfast?” (No.) “Can I get ripped from intermittent fasting?” (Probably.) “What’s the fastest way to lose a dad bod?” (Once and for all: There is nothing wrong with having a dad bod.) But there’s no easy answer to what you’re asking, because it’s one thing to tell someone you love them—as ride-or-die actor friends Sam Richardson and Tim Robinson tell us on page 104, it’s as easy as ending a phone call with “I love you, pal”—but to show someone you love them is a little trickier. Especially when you’re not talking about romantic, sexy-time love* but about the…

dental dilemmas

Q Do I really need to go to the dentist twice a year? How do I know it’s time? —Ben, Indianapolis A It depends on your oral health, Ben. Young males who are healthy and don’t have a history of gum disease, tooth decay, or cavities need to go only once a year. History of cavities? Make it twice a year. If your gums are always bleeding after brushing, you may want to go up to four times. Other signs that it’s time to pay your dentist a visit include any kind of pain. Pain while eating sugary food could be a sign of cavities. Pain while eating cold foods could be a sign that your gums are receding and that you’re overbrushing. Ask your dentist or dental hygienist to go over…

belly off! just what the doctor ordered

The Setback I was a young man living my life with no cares in the world. I went to the gym but was not at all disciplined. When I ate, there were no limits: I cooked somewhat healthy meals but would always go back for seconds or thirds. I noticed my weight gain right away. After a year, I couldn’t fit into my clothes. I was unhappy with my body and how I looked, clothed and unclothed. I was depressed and angry at myself, because I knew what needed to be done and I wasn’t making the necessary changes. The Wake-up Call In January, an annual checkup with my doctor revealed that I now weighed 222 pounds. He told me I had high blood pressure and high cholesterol and that I had become…
