Never has ‘eat your greens’ sounded more appealing – it seems that men who eat a diet heavy in fruit and vegetables and more likely to be attractive to women.
Researchers from Macquarie University in Australia carried out a small study in which they tested the diets of 43 men.
Scientists used a skin test (bright red, yellow, and orange foods tinge our skin very slightly when consumed regularly) to measure the diets of participants.
After, they asked the men to exercise while wearing a clean, unscented cotton t-shirt. After, nine women gave them a big sniff.
The research was conclusive – women preferred men with diets high in fruit and veg over those who ate a lot of refined carbohydrates.
“We’ve known for a while that odor is an important component of attractiveness, especially for women,” said Ian Stephen, professor of evolution, genetics, and psychology at Macquarie University in Australia.
“Women basically found that men who ate more vegetables smelled nicer”.
The study is creative and small. But Prof. Stephen isn’t the first author to write about the connection between diet, odour, and attractiveness.
Several other studies, including a number of experiments from Charles University anthropologist Jitka Fialová, also suggest that food has an impact on how appealing straight women find men.
It’s probably because scent can be a powerful indicator of our health. And women want a strong, fit man. It’s instinctive. And, as we know, eating lots of fruit and veg is good for us.
“When you look at overall dietary patterns it’s a more whole-foods, plant-based diet that tends to be healthier in terms of less disease risk,” New York-based nutritionist and dietitian Cara Anselmo told Business Insider .
So there you have it – lads, go eat some cabbage.
PHOTOS:3 Secrets Of Osei Kwame Despite That Every Young Man Should Learn
Born in a village called Agona, Wiamoase in the Ashanti Region in Ghana, Despite began life as a petty trader selling all sorts of merchandise including; music cassettes, padlocks, feeding bottles, and other merchandise at Dunkwa Offinso. His family background never stopped him from doing something for himself.
For many young entrepreneurs who may identify with him, this must be a wake-up call- your success must not be limited by your place of birth. It is a blessing to have wealthy parents but the unavailability of such parents should not become a deterrent in your own pursuits to build an enterprise. In his own words during a rare recent interview, Despite said, “though I had dreams, I never knew, I will get this far but God has made all things possible.”
KWAME DESPITE WENT BANKRUPT IN 1983
Only the strong-minded few are able to turn their lives around after a major setback such as losing all their investment, and Osei Kwame is amongst them. In 1983, the Nigerian government deported millions of Ghanaians living then in Nigeria, Kwame Despite who was also then living in Nigeria was forced to return to the country and he returned with only, a chain-saw machine and a trident cassette player to start all over.
A HUMBLE SOLDIER
For anyone to achieve this feat of success, it will be quite easy for a bit of arrogance and superiority complex to creep in but not Osei Kwame. In his recent interview he granted Kwame Sefa Kai , Despite attributed his success to the efforts of his dedicated untiring staff and Almighty God. He said to the host, “ Let me laud the efforts of all my untiring workers for their commitment and dedication towards making the Despite Group of Companies a success.”
Despite, later advised the youth to persevere, work hard and never give up. The life experience of Osei Kwame should be a guiding principle for many today; that success is a journey and until the journey is completed, one should never give up in life.
