hey guys,
I'm trying to finally lose some weight and I think a great place to start would be what I eat.
Well I think I get like 2 meals a day in.... I live at home, and my parents work pretty much all the time so there is pretty much no food at home. So since there is no food they either leave about 5-10 bucks or my brother and I can scrounge up some cash for some fast food, then later eat some dinner with my parents. I've read that in order to get into a healthy diet you need to eat 5-6 meals a day, which is alot more than I eat now. Breakfast is pretty hard because I usually get up and just go to class and the fact that my stomach really doesn't take things well in the morning. Would I be able to just drink one of those ON shakes with maybe some toast and NPB? I think I'm going to ask my parents to just give me some cash and I'll go buy exactly whats on the first page haha, pretty sure thats a good place to start. Also just quick question, would it be good to eat cold cut sandwhiches like a roast beef sandwhich or turkey or chicken?

Really appreciate any of the hep of here guys. I think I'm gonna buy the p90x and try that and see how it goes!

Just started adding steamed broccoli rabe to my list of vegetables. Delicious, but I know a ton of people hate it.

Agree with the list except for the above. Splenda = acesulfame potassium = aspartame = sucralose. All poison.

The only safe artificial sweetener I would recommend is Stevia.

Need help adjusting my eating. I recently took a full 180 turn for my work schedule. I now work 4am-2pm. Meaning leave my house at 3am and get to gym by 230.

My work does not allow me to take lunch breaks more than maybe 20 minutes before I would be busy again.

What would suggestions be to continue getting high calorie intake daily while only being able to take 5 minutes to eat. If you have not seen my thread its here somewhere. I should be eating 3500-4000 calories a day.

Your work schedule sounds eerily similar to our law enforcement splits (..wacky hours, short lunches.....even shorter breaks). Could you be one of us?

But I digress......Your best bet is to pack a cooler full of food and chow down every moment that you can. I regularly have sandwiches, tuna, cooked chicken breasts, rice, almonds, hard boiled eggs, etc......all of which I don't mind eating cold or at room temp.


P.S. I sold the race prepped 848. I'm picking up a Panigale base model in January; it'll be at the track that same month.

fresh fruit (grapes, any type of melon, oranges, apples, berries, etc.)
veggies & dip (broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, snap peas, cucumber, etc.)

to be honest dude, almost all "snack" type foods are unhealthy.

It's not about THEM, it's about YOU! Keeping junk in your house will only serve to expand YOUR waistline. When people come over, put out a platter with carrots, broccoli, etc. and a low fat ranch dressing. Have a platter of low glycemic index fruit available as well (..cherries are really low).

I use a lot... I bolded the essentials in my mind & added uses

Another thing to save money & time is to buy things like "italian seasoning", "cajun seasoning", "montreal steak spice", etc. that you know what flavor you are getting. If you want to spend the money, I highly suggest getting each individual seasoning and learning what they do! Also freeze dried herbs and minced garlic in bottles are a great time saver, and still do a good job.

I make my own sauces / dressings and don't really use condiments... but these would go a long way too:

BBQ Sauce
Ketchup
Mustard
Relish
Dijon Mustard
Diane Sauce
Chili Sauce
Italian Dressing (Most healthy)

My go to salad dressing is to cut up an avocado, and grind it up with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, garlic powder/oregano/salt & fresh basil leaves.

oils
avocado oil
coconut oil - for searing meats
olive oil - for salad dressings, low heat cooking

Fresh Herbs
Parsley - Great for middle eastern dishes
Rosemary - Great for poultry / fish
Basil - Great ground up with olive oil for dressings, or for seasoning poultry / fish
Cilantro - Great garnish.. if you like the taste
Chives - Great garnish for potatoes, meats.
Dill - A must for any fish seasoning, or works well in a sauce for fish

spices/seasonings
coriander
cumin - anything mexican flavored, goes well with steak
ground peppercorn (ground black pepper) - use it on everything
sea salt - use it on everything
garlic powder - use it on pretty much everything, especially meat / salad dressings
chili powder - good for mexican theme / spicy dishes
chipotle powder - good for mexican theme / spicy dishes
sage - great for pork chops / poultry
onion powder - use on everything
allspice
thyme - great with chicken, pork, fish
oregano - great for salad dressings, sauces (spaghetti sauce etc)
smoked paprika - great with any meat rub, gives a smoky flavor
cinnamon
cayenne pepper - go to if you want some kick (just a pinch is good)
red pepper chili flakes - go to if you want some kick
medium curry powder
garlic salt

reductions / cooking flavors
chicken stock - great for quick gravy, slow cooker, boiling anything
beef stock - great for quick gravy, slow cooker, boiling anything
marsala wine
white wine
dry red wine
apple cider vinegar
white wine vinegar
balsamic vinegar - great for salad dressings, chicken
soy sauce - essential for stir frys
honey - great natural sugar for a marinade
lemon juice - go to acid, great for salad dressings as it breaks down the leaves for easy consumption, adds a bit of "bite" to olive oil / marinades.
lime juice

I use these pretty much everytime I cook

salt
ground black pepper
garlic powder (or fresh)
onion powder (or fresh)
coconut oil / butter
cumin
cayenne pepper / red pepper flakes

and these at least once or twice a week

oregano
basil
parsley
dill
olive oil
balsamic vinegar

this is the best dry rub for meat (makes enough for 10lbs)

2 tbsp. coarse salt, such as kosher salt
2 tbsp. freshly ground pepper
2 tbsp. smoked paprika
2 tbsp. garlic powder
2 tbsp. ground cumin
2 tbsp. brown sugar
2 tsp. cayenne, or to taste

and this is the best taco seasoning (makes enough for 1.5 lbs ground beef)

1 tablespoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
