Water, tea (unsweetened or sweetened only w/ a bit of honey), and lots of fruits and veggies.
i drink milk, hot chocolate all mix with oats, eat biscuits or bread in the morning, skip lunch, eat light dinner. Hardly had any meat in a week, maybe 3x a week...
Single-malt, Top-shelf tequila, vodka-distilled 3 or more times, avocados, vitamin pills, bacon, coffee (black) tea (iced of course) and tonic water (to prevent malaria)
Everything else I ingest is purely for enjoyment,
I like to eat a variety of foods, but I find that certain foods don't appeal to me as they did before. Chicken is probably the dominant meat in my diet although I do eat burgers. I'm not a vegetarian but I do enjoy veggies. I do enjoy many kinds of foods when the opportunity presents itself.
As for what I drink it's mostly teas and coffee, lots of water. Occaissionally I will drink a soda knowing how bad it is. There is one ingredient that seems to prevail in many drinks and snacks, including bread and coffee creamers it's high fructose corn syrup. I always try to find products that I like that do not contain it. I fail to understand why it is used in so many foods when it is not the most healthy thing to be consuming.
I know it is a difficult challenge for many including myself, but if one could refrain from consuming sugar whatever the form one's health would dramatically change.
My preferred food and drink to stay healthy is fruits, nuts, vegetables and water. My preference is bananas, apples, oranges, tomatoes, onions and avocados.
As a nutritionist by trade, I say that eating and drinking all natural, non-processed, foods in balance (i.e., protein, carbohydrates, and fats) is the best way to stay healthy.
Proteins may include lean beef, skinless chicken and turkey breast, pork tenderloin, fish (coldwater is the best), egg whites, low-fat cottage cheese, Greek yogurt, tofu, and tempeh.
Carbohydrates include vegetables, fruits, beans, tubers, and whole grains. Green and colorful veggies should be your top source. Two to three fruit servings per day is plenty. Bean, tubers, and whole grains are starchy; therefore, they should be limited around workout times. If you're trying to lose weight, they should only be consumed after a strenuous workout twice per week for fastest fat loss.
Essential fatty acids are important for all cells in your body. Try including Omega-3 fats in your diet as they are proven the healthiest. This includes coldwater fish such as salmon, tuna, mackerel, herring, and sardines. Flaxseeds, flax seed oil, chia seeds, walnuts, avocados, and egg yolk are also good sources. Though olive oil is an Omega-9, it is healthy too. Coconut oil also has been proven to be beneficial for health.
By including all these healthy foods in your diet (while eliminating pre-packaged, processed, and refined foods), you eliminate bodily inflammation which is the source of all disease.
All I can say is awesome It's really hard to do these this but I know people that are doing it so I know it's something that can be done you should turn your facts into a hub you are giving good information.
Thanks, Handicapped Chef. I do have several hubs on the topic.
I think MaximumFatLoss said it well! We try to eat mostly healthy foods, although there is always room for improvement. We start out the morning with a smoothie made from almonds soaked overnight, oatmeal, papaya, banana, mango or any other fruit that's in season. We try to eat either beans and quinoa or some other protein and a salad for lunch. Dinner is something light, often a fruit salad and yogurt.
We try to drink plenty of water and include lots of colorful fruits and veggies in our diet. We eat almost no processed foods. Everything is made from scratch. Fast food and processed foods are hard to find in the areas where we've lived in Peru, so that makes it harder to cheat! : )
1) Water- free and healthy, no calories
2) Black coffee- brewed from fresh ground beans, loaded with antioxidants, almost no calories.
3) Decaf coffee- you can drink it all day and night, almost no calories
1) Bananas- about 25 cents each, tons of potassium
2) Peanut butter sandwich on whole wheat- complete protein, cheap
3) Turkey burger with jalepenos, no sauce- low fat and tasty
