I don't know if anyone has said this already but cook lots of rice if you can find the time. It's really filling, decently healthy, and goes with a lot of meals, whether those meals are chicken, pork, or vegetable based.

EDIT. Sorry I didn't see that you can't eat pork or veggies, but I still think you should try our rice.

Holy smokes, you had Taco bell for an entire month.


At the most I've had taco bell at least 3 times in a span of 10 years.

Chicken breast is the way to go.

You need to eat vegetables lol - a diet without that...yikes.

My diet usually consists of the following

Meats
-Chicken breast
-Turkey (from time to time)

Vegetables
-Cauliflower
-Broccoli
-Red Cabbage
-Carrots
-Beans (multiple types)

Fruits
-Blueberries
-Strawberries
-Blackberries
-Banana
-Apple

Nuts
-Almonds

Liquids
-Water only

Other
-Basmati Rice
-Brown Rice Puttu
-Chapati
-Boiled Egg
-Shark, Catfish, or Salmon

I stay away from fried foods, carbonated drinks, coffee/tea, red meats and other junky food. I rarely go to fast food restaurants.

It's REALLY for the best if the rice is soaked in water for about 4 hours and then rinsed to remove arsenic, which loves to live in rice. Especially brown rice. I'm actually hesitant to even order rice in restaurants any more and mostly eat it at home.

Let me give you the scoop, don't buy cheap food. I know it sounds impossible but in terms of meat buy Grass Fed Beef and Organic meats like Chicken. To lose some weight I've been eating chicken breast, veggies, eggs, and water for 2+ months but eating too much of these cheap meats will cause hormone imbalances. So if you're a male, eating too much hormone treated meat can make you grow man boobs. So alternate between skinless chicken and fish, have grass fed beef rarely and I try to stay away from pork when I can.

I tell you, clean eating makes you feel much better.

Edit: Also, brown rice. Make sure you eat that stuff and get the organic brand. It does have traces of arsenic but hey, I'm still living.

I've never heard this before. I've had freshly caught fish around 10 times in my, like in under an hour of being caught fresh, and it was the best fish I've ever had.

Yeah, that doesn't really sound like good advice. I'm not sure if the comment was made in relation to the healthiness or bacteria levels or general food quality, but it shouldn't really improve any of those. Freezing typically does two things: It prevents bacteria from growing (however it does not kill existing bacteria) and it breaks down the cell structures of the food making its consistency more mushy (when frozen in typical home freezers).

Ideally, if you buy or catch fresh fish, you want to cook it quickly and without freezing it. If you buy frozen fish (which is typically frozen so quickly that it prevents the breakdown of cell structures), you can store it frozen, but if it starts to defrost, you shouldn't refreeze it.

Fun fact though, frozen fish is often better than fresh fish at grocery stores, because the fresh fish is often imported which means that it may be a little older than ideal, while the frozen fish (if handled properly) should have been frozen directly after catching which basically freezes in the freshness (again, because the fish is frozen using special techniques and not just frozen in a standard home freezer).

Yes to everything you said.

Arsenic in rice is only a concern for people that eat rice in very large amounts. If you have 10+ servings per week, it could be worth thinking about. Though, even that is probably unnecessary worry.

As for this talk about meat giving you man boobs due to hormones..... That's crazy fearmongering. "Organic" food is largely a scam, in terms of having health benefits for humans. There is no difference whatsoever in most cases.

Remember, the human body was designed to clean out crap from food we eat. We have a whole bunch of organs that handle that for us. In most people, and in most cases, they do those jobs well.

I don't understand what you're getting at. Do you have some dietary restrictions? You just want people to tell you stuff that they like?

I want meat's that do very mininum damage to the heart . I have been eating taco bell's 5 dollar box for a month now which include 1 tacos ,sour cream burrito , 1 gorditta is this less damaging to heart than pizza from little ceasar's?

If you're going to continue eating a lot of fast food, I'd suggest keeping portion sizes as small as reasonably possible, and throwing in some salads.  Most fast food places have salads now.  Beyond that, order items from the menu that have some veggies on them, rather than just meat and cheese in a bun.  

Pizza ain't so bad, as American convenience foods go.  It isn't the ideal food, of course.  But, again, get some veggies on it and don't eat if for more than a few meals per week, and it's fine.  

With all that said, since you seem to be opposed to veggies, it's going to be tough to make fast food a reasonable component of your diet.  So, I'd really work on finding some veggies you like.  Even a slice of tomato and lettuce in a burger are helpful to your health, and your ability to digest the rest of it.

Why?  That doesn't make any sense.

It kills any anisakis (a common parasite among marine mammals and fish) the fish might have.
