Rice, tuna, potatoes, whole heads of lettuce, bananas, eggs, bulk chicken and pork, peanut butter, olive oil, milk, lean ground beef when it's on sale, etc etc. Spend the rest on a few different seasonings and you can eat very cleanly for very little money.

The problem is people are lazy and don't want to spend the time researching foods and recipes. They'd rather spend $5 at McDonalds for a bunch of junk.


Really? I have a hard time believing that. Why would you do that anyway? Unless you're Ronnie Coleman or something.

That's the kind of diet Shaq should have been on. Would have leaned him out and made him more beastly throughout his career.

As far as general health I haven't made up my mind.

"High" fructose corn syrup is 60/40 fructose/glucose, sugar is 50/50. There is nothing terrible or awful in HFCS that is not in sugar. The vast majority of calories in fruit come from fructose.

Bulking/bodybuilding.

Protein shake = 60
Pound of chicken breast = 100
4 eggs w/ ham = 50
Peanut butter on toast = ~15-20
Almonds = 10-15
1 cup cottage cheese every night = 25
A few glasses of milk throughout the day = 25

etc.

I weighed 235 at my biggest and was eating even more than that for a little while but I found that extremely uncomfortable. I am down to around 175 now and feel much better, I also don't eat nearly as much.

Just look at history. In the early 1900s and before that cancer, obesity, heart disease, diabetes was rare. Now it is very common. What is the difference? The food. Eating things that are not natural will produce unnatural and unhealthy effects. It makes sense. You don't need to be a historian or doctor to know this.

This. But it's not as easy as just stop eating fast food because all the food grown and raised is genetically modified and not natural anymore. It's gone from private and small farmers to corporations taking over and introducing their greedy tactics to raise as much profit as possible. I'm not an expert on the subject but I've read and watched a few documentaries and it's sad what has happened.. Corporations buying out individual farmers and then turning the farm into a factory basically.

Yeah, you drink DIET soda. Sugar/HFCS is incredibly bad for you. Fruit generally has sugar in lesser amounts than processed food like soda and it has other benefits like fiber and vitamins. Why don't you switch to 4-5 cans of regular soda and see what happens. Hint: You'd become diabetic. Thats like eating a tub of ice cream worth of sugar everyday.

Guys who are busy...

Use crockpot and slow cook on weekdays

Take few hrs subday
Keep chicken marinated in ziplock bags
Boil rice
Bake sweet potatoes
Prepare tuna
Thaw meat
Prepare frozen veggies (pref broc kale asparagus)
Hardboil eggs

Fruits oats nuts eggqhites and seeds are available

Put in Tupperware one protein one veg and one starch
Reheat

Consider intermittent fasting
Voila. Cheap quick and leaves you in better physical condition than 98 percent of America. Only guys who trump u are raw vegan grass fed beef eating hybrids but they take hits to their wallet

I can't cook.

And I'm kinda broke.

Frozen pizza or a frozen burrito is a daily thing for me. Is this horrible for me?

If drinking 4-5 cans of regular soda a day caused diabetes, then the world would be littered with type 2 diabetics.

So, you're saying I shouldn't be eating a tub of ice cream everyday?
