The 2024 Men’s Health Food Awards

by News7

DISCOVERING NEW PRODUCTS fights diet boredom. But how do you stick to a budget with so much deliciousness at play? We did the work for you.

So, what makes a winner? We’re looking for foods that are high in protein, healthy fats, and/or fiber while also containing a sensible amount of calories and added sugar. Organic and sustainable products—along with those that have short ingredient lists—are all valued. And this year, we asked: Is this worth the money?

Our food and nutrition-obsessed editors and writers set out to answer this question with each food product we encountered this year. We extensively researched and tested hundreds of foods—from pantry essentials, quality meats, and frozen meals to high-protein snacks and instant coffee that actually tastes like a fresh cup of joe. Our goal: To curate a list showcasing this year’s finest foods. Without further ado, we present the Men’s Health Food Awards 2024.
