Yes, the point was that you think you are doing your body a favor, but really you are just feeding it more of the same crap without realizing it. Figured I would shine the light of truth on that for ya. That's all. Take it how you will.

Please keep in mind that I only share it with you because you are making a mistake that I used to make. (At least a mistake that I only learned was one to begin with because of learning about my current diet.)

In short, Monkey D. Luffy has the right of things. Eat more meat.



I'd say I eat plenty of meat as-is. If I don't throw a salad and other veggies in as well as a serving or two of unprocessed fruit my skin gets oily and breaks out, stools get harder, and I generally just feel less well as a result. I don't make any special effort to avoid or load up on any particular thing, and with moderate exercise and moderating my beer consumption I'm still mostly able to wear the same pant size I've worn since highschool despite my metabolism catching up with me once I hit 30.

If a particular diet works for a person, all power to them. I'll stick with listening to what my body craves.

Take this with a grain of salt if you must, but the only change you made there that is worth while is the cutting back of the coke.

More water= good.

Salad= good

Less cheese and meats....= depends on which kinds and how much, but not bad.

No expert here, but our bodies aren't all that different when it comes to how they react to certain things.

If you are looking to lose weight and keep it off, you are already on the right track with the soda pop.

But before you continue down that road, maybe look up some info on low-carb/keto diets. They are considered extreme by some people.... but I personally vouch for their effectiveness.

Just remember these few things.

1. All carbs that are not non-soluble fibre are sugar. All of them. Unless the package says fibre, it's sugar. Example: 12g of carbs in the food, but states that 1g is fibre, then 11g of those carbs are either soluble fibre(long chain sugar known as carbohydrates) or pure sugar itself.

2. Meat and fat is not the enemy. They are just misunderstood friends. Fat gets a bad rap due to how it interacts with carbs in the body. Remove the carbs to almost nil, and fat stops doing things we don't want it to do. Like store itself for winter. Remove carbs, and fat becomes the new fuel source. Keto achieves this spectacularly. Low-carb diet does as well, but at a much lower rate.

3. Depending on certain things like lactose intolerance, milk products and etc like cheese are perfectly fine. Better even than most carb filled foods. Just watch out for added sugars and sweeteners.

4. If it says low fat or low sugar, avoid it. Low fat just has added sugars or sweeteners to make it tasty again. Low sugar usually just replaces all known pure sugar with sweeteners like aspartame. When in doubt, just throw it out.



You may not appreciate me telling you this. You might appreciate it. I have no clue as to which will be the case when you read this.

Just keep this in mind when you reply. I am following this diet and losing weight without having to do extra exercise.

So I must be doing something right.



Thanks for the advice. I'm not familiar with the keto diet, but I will be sure to look it up when I can. It's that where I am,

I don't think they display all the nutritional values of the foods being served there on the spot. They just display the calories and whether or not it's healthy. The dining facility has a red, yellow, green system. Red meaning limit intake, yellow meaning eat with caution and green being the healthier choice.

I suffer from numerous food allergies that have hospitalized me in the past. I can't eat anything containing wheat, corn, soy or rice (among other things). It can be a real pain in the ass to find safe food to eat in supermarkets so I have to special order much of it. Ironically, it's easy to find food I can eat during Hanukkah and other Jewish holidays as "Kosher for Passover"/Non-Gebrokts food is pretty much 99.9% safe for my diet.

I usually eat whatever I want, but I also lift weights/exercise five days a week so it doesn't bother me too much. I eat a lot of home cooking though so there's that.

Breakfast - Cereal most of the time, sometime steak and eggs
Lunch - most of the time a ham sandwich
Dinner - usually a can of some type of stew, meat and veggies included (mushroom burger stew is best)
Snacks - nuts, fruits and dried fruits, cheese squares
I find this stuff healthy ^

your dinner should be your smallest meal with lunch or breakfast as the biggest. but for me i eat brunch, which is either salad, sandwhich, soup, or eggs/omlette. for dinner i eat whatever i feel like/have in the house usually. for snacks i try to stick to healthy stuff but fruit and veggies are best.
i lost 4 lbs in 2 weeks from just eating salads if that helps. its really hard though

ham on bread usually. Ham is considered healthy, not talking about ham meals here. I think its sliced up bits or something, but i put it on bread. Either way you wont be healthy just by eating healthy, you gotta combine it with excercise too.
