If only it made me feel like a warrior all day everyday, there wouldn't be a need to change it..

I eat too much carbohydrate and sweet I actually eat sweet more than carbs >_<


0 in vegetable and fruits

I'm not into meat that much, I get scared when I'm at a buffet and I see people eating bowls after bowls of prawns... like i'll eat 2 or 3. I can't imagine myself eating a bowl of prawns... scary.

I think it might be best to eat things that you can make in your own kitchen easily. Try to eat minimally processed foods with as few ingredients and preservatives as possible.

You'll come to appreciate the natural flavor of the ingredients. Overly elaborate and flowery preparation methods tend to hide fundamental cooking mistakes, anyway.

I need to add a greens product though, I don't eat as much as I should. Carbs and meat are just always tastier and more attractive options.


I take a greens product first thing in the morning along with fish oil and L-Carnitine-L-Tartrate. Cortisol levels are usually higher in the morning and having a diet that is high in meat protein can contribute to this via decreasing the body's pH levels (acidic). Greens (and, of course green vegetables) help alkalize the body which makes for balanced pH levels (better for muscle building / maintenance as well).

A sample day for me would look like this:

Meal 1

Greens + fish oil capsule + L-Carnitine-L-Tartrate
Smoothie with whey protein isolate / hydrolysate + hemp seeds + chia seeds + flaxseed + pysillium husk + Greek yogurt + natural peanut butter + a dash of coffee

Meal 2

4-6 whole eggs + bacon

Meal 3

Chicken breast + 1 cup green beans + handful of almonds

Meal 4 (immediately post-workout)

Protein blend consisting of whey isolate / hydrolysate + casein (occasionally I'll eat a banana or an apple as well)

Meal 5 (roughly 1 hour after post-workout)

Steak + 1 cup of broccoli + half a baked potato (sometimes I'll eat fatty fish like salmon with veggies)

Meal 6 (before bed)

I'll make a smoothie that's similar to my breakfast shake, just not with all the fiber.

As for supplements, I take a multivitamin that's geared towards athletes / bodybuilders. Fish oil and L-Carnitine-L-Tartrate I've mentioned above. Every so often I'll take conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) along with food. Pre-workout generally drink something with caffeine (not coffee).

Although I love rice and potatoes, I usually only ingest carbs either pre- or post-workout. I just don't like the way they make me feel sluggish.

I should start eating a healthier selection of food. But I just can't give up my meat. Due to stomach issues that crop up in the mornings, I usually eat a very light if at all breakfast and lunch, neither of which could usually be called healthy.

Sometimes I will have a snack, sometimes it is healthy like an apple or orange or whatever. other times it is far from healthy like chips or ritz or ice cream.

My dinners vary from being meat, meat, lots of meat, a little meat with something else, or if I forgot to mention it meat. My family just eats a lot of meat, ranging from Pork, Beef, and Chicken (when its just me and the old man,sometimes fish too) rarely though do we have any side dishes that are not just riddled with oil or something else just as unhealthy.

Occasionally we will have potatoes, corn, or something similar with a meal. But that is rare honestly. I'm not exactly against eating more fruits or veggies, just too much work to add them into meals or have them as a snack it seems. So since i'm lazy I just forget about them.

I don't take supplements or whatever, never was told I had to by a doctor yet so I see no reason to do so. I sometimes take a multivitamin when I remember about the thing, which is next to never.

What is in your diet? what are some supplements you take everyday and what's the reason for it?



I'll start, I take vitamin B because I often have a poor memory and crap like that, the one I take is called vitamin b something formula which has niacin my doctor tells me to take niacin don't know why but whatever.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Niacin#Food_sources


LOL look under food source "Other"


Make sure you include magnesium when you take your b's ..actually you should take a multi B plus biotin plus magnesium. Thats what I take in the morn. Cures my carpel tunnel and more. yes good for memory too.

Before I go to bed I take vitC + Zinc + vitA + Bilberry + Fish Oil for my eyes. My night blindness is a thing of the past..as you age your eyes need special care thats why I take those at night before I go to bed. It's cheaper to take them that way but you could just lay out the $$$ for Ocuvite, ICaps and so on lots on the market for the eyes.

As for diet..I only eat one full meal a day, around 500-600cal. Depends on my schedule when I eat it. For the other meals I try to keep them below 200 cal. Could be yogurt, a salad, can of tuna..whatever..lots of ways to be creative and not eat junk. Sugar is the enemy..so I limit my intake of fruit too. No, I'm not a diabetic.

Er, well, I have a high metabolism and I'm 16, so I'll be able to get away with eating a little more on the unhealthy side for a few more years, I suppose
As for my nutrition, I have a bit of everything I guess... I'm not completely health cautious because I don't really have to be. As I get older I'm sure I'll care about what I take it.

discussion ... about.. nutrition... ok.

i don't take any supplements, should probably take iron and calcium but eh

i like to have a meat, vegetable, and staple for each meal. But since meat is so expensive i often just opt for veggies, bread, or noodles/rice.

I usually eat meals generally involving meat and vegetables. Right now I'm eating a sheperd's pie. Though I usually have many unhealthy things as well, like pot noodles, chocolate, crisps, flapjacks, cake and all that. I'm not really very cautious of my health lol. I'm not really fat, either, just unfit.

I usually eat one meal a day; two if I wake up early. In that one meal I'll eat around 1500 calories and I eat anything I want--though I do try and avoid things like soda and other kinds of junk food. Been doing this for the past 6 months and I feel great. I have more energy throughout the day--or at least it seems that way--and I no longer get cravings for random foods or eat when I'm bored. I've also lost 45 lbs (~20.4 KG) in those 6 months so not too bad.

Boneless skinless chicken breasts, fruits, veggies, matcha green tea, and pizza. I also take multivitamins daily and whey protein 3-4 times a week.

Man I've given up on trying to stick to straight up healthy diets. I eat what my mom feeds me(being a lot of dinners with lean ground beef) or I make tilapia or salmon when I get home from work. But as far as taking like grilled chicken in my lunch to work, no. I'll take PB & J or Bologna you know why? Because to me that's soul food. It makes me feel good. And I'd rather be comfortable than feed like a starving animal. In my lunch i'll also throw in stuff like pretzels or cereal bar but not stuff like doritos or beef jerky because I try to keep it somewhat healthy. But make sure i'm happy with it as well.

SOUL FOOD

P.S. High carbs ftw. Just stay active with em
