I don't usually eat breakfast but sometimes I'll have some cereal (no milk) or granola and yogurt or something quick. Lunches, on work days I pack up leftovers from dinner the previous night or a PBJ if I don't have leftovers (I try to make sure I do) with some carrots, pretzels, nuts, berries or whatever, but it's always 3 small healthy things with my main meal. On days off I might make some soup or something light.

For dinner, on work days I'm usually so tired that I'll just have some ramen or mac and cheese or something gross like that (I used to like this crap, now it tastes awful! but its quick and easy so...) sometimes I don't eat at all or only have a snack like popcorn or pretzels. =/ On days off I have the time to make proper meals, always some sort of protein with lots of vegetables (I like broccoli, onions, cabbage YUM) I always make more than I can eat so I can pack it for lunch or grab to eat after work.

I limit myself to one soda per day, usually with dinner. I drink a lot of apple juice, water, and iced tea. Sometimes when I remember I'll drink almond milk or mix in some whey protein. I take iron daily for anemia. I have a bunch of other vitamins sitting around that I don't remember to take, hell half of them I don't even know what they are for, its all stuff my mom or doctor told me to take.

I know I don't get enough fruit, but I don't like eating things that don't fill me up and I'm not a fan of sweet stuff. I get at least one proper meal a day and that's better than I've done in the past. I try to stay away from preprocessed crap and preservatives and junk as much as I can, but I can't cook all my meals, that's just unrealistic for me.

I pretty much eat anything I want really. Obviously I try to avoid fast foods, fried foods and stuff like that. And I make protein shakes every time after I workout, which is usually 6x a week. All I really care is that I'm getting the protein I need to repair my muscles.

Rice and water. Nothing else.

I'm trying to filter meat, bread, and cheese out of my diet. Unfortunately those are the three things my partner lives on so most of the time I'm like....fuck it, let's just have some of that too and not make a separate meal.

I really don't care much for bread and cheese anyway but I LOVE meat.....a good steak or pot roast with potatoes.....I would kill for.

But veg is also awesome and there are so many different options. I was very picky growing up because my mom sucked balls at cooking but after some experimenting and finding a way to make vegetables taste REALLY good--usually with just salt, garlic/onion powder, and a lil' olive oil--I'll make heaps of veg and eat/snack on that. Kale chips, asparagus, zucchini, eggplant, broccoli.....people think I'm always on a diet because I'm eating big ass bowls of that stuff but I really do just love it when done properly.

I wish there were places that served good savory veg as fast food, like McDonalds

It can be a lot of work if you do it that way OR.....cut up the veg and toss it in a big bowl with a couple of tablespoons of water, put a plate on top and nuke it in the microwave for 5-7 minutes. Or put a whole cob of corn WITH the husk in the micro for like 3 minutes and it's done--too easy though most people don't think to cook that way. Once you get the hang of microwave steaming it's really really quick and easy put that shit in the microwave before you start cooking the meat and it's ready by the time your done--no salting until it's done though or it'll dry out. OR salt and season and bake at 375 until tender....usually tastes better but the microwave option is so easy I often use that.

And fruit is even easier than that, no? Just peel....if you even need to do that.....and stuff in mouth.....

High fat, low carb.

I avoid bread, sweets, most fruit and I completely cut out sodas.

I cook with coconut oil, olive oil. I eat eggs, bacon, red meat, white meat, seafood. Not much discrimination there. Lots of nuts like almonds, too.

Lots of vegetables, leafy greens, as much cheese as I can eat. Broccoli, Edamame, Spinach, Arugula, Brussel Sprouts, Cauliflower. At least an avocado a day.

Low carb master life style.

Since I have lots of vegetables and fruit in my diet I rarely need to add supplements. I also eat some fish, some eggs and some meat though not every day. I'll make sure to have some protein daily by having lots of peas and beans around for a variety of dishes. Once a month I'll increase my iron intake with eating liver. Since I'm a woman you'll know why I need to have extra. If I miss out on the liver then I may take some iron pills for a week. I'll have vitamin D added in autumn/winter because there's not enough sun for my skin to make it then and there isn't enough vitamin D in natural foods to be enough from my daily use. I've cut down on dairy due to allergy issues so I've replaced that with almond milk and more legumes plus calcium laden vegetables. Sometimes I'll just have a glass of water and munch on some almonds. I make sure to complement my meals so that I get enough vitamin C with non meat supplies that have iron because this is needed for the body to absorb these sources of iron. I've once been anaemic so I need to prevent that from reoccurring. When I'm stressed sometimes my diet becomes unbalanced then I end up having to sorting it out.

I prefer to enjoy meals rather than live a lifestyle of being medicated for nutrition.

Ok, I have some stake in this discussion.

I had it all. I loved buffets. I'd eat to my heart's content. I had a good life for 40 years.

But here's the reality of it. I was 375 pounds. I had pre-diabetes, high blood pressure., gerd, sleep apnea, and tons of other health conditions.

I detonated the nuclear option. I had a vertical sleeve gastronomy. They took away 2/3 of my stomach.

This is the reality. I lost 175 pounds. That's the good news.

I eat like a 5-year old kid. I can have, at most, one egg, a sausage, and a piece of toast, and I'm full.

I don't mind it at all. It literally saved my life. But it changed it at the same time. Reality is much different for me than any of you, unless you went through the same thing. I learned the hard way. Don't be me. Control your eating now, while you can. This was a blessing for me, but it'd be a curse for many. Weight loss surgery isn't a way out. It's a prison sentence. Once imposed, there is no repeal. I'm not sad I did it. I wouldn't be talking to you if I hadn't. Just choose carefully. Please.

I try to eat as much minimally processed and as little added sugar as possible. My roommates and I make almost everything from scratch, including things like bread, granola bars, and pasta/pasta sauce, which makes it easier. For things like soup/curry, we tend to make big batches and freeze the leftovers in individual bowls, which makes it easier to eat well during the week when we're busy..

Avoid cheap fast food. Avoid heavily processed food. Eat right. Live longer.

I agree. I did try that, before I had my surgery. But I was too far gone. It was too easy to down too much food, processed or not. I'm better now, but only because I did what I did. I wish I'd had more will power, or could have taken a different route. But it was this or death at a young age, and I decided I wanted to stick around to annoy young folks for a while.
