Low-calorie nuke-and-eat meals might sound healthy, but they're not so great, especially for guys. They usually have around 300 calories, which isn't enough to cut it for dinner, assuming you shoot for the 2,500 calories a day recommended for men. Chances are you'll polish one off and still feel hungry. Next thing you know, you'll be searching for a snack. Additionally, Salge Blake says these entrées don't offer enough vegetables to make a square meal and they're usually sky-high in sodium. Some have as many as 700 mg, which is almost half of the 1,500 mg recommended for the whole day.
