Re: How does my diet look?

i woould cut back on the fruit......there's a lot of sugar in fruit. and maybe try to replace a couple of the snacks with a small salad, or a meal supplement bar or shake, a container of yogurt with granola, raw veggies, pasta, cottage cheese, etc.

to know better what kind of diet would be best, i have a few questions--how much do weigh? how tall are you? what is your daily activity level through out the day?

Re: How does my diet look?

I disagree with JustErin..fruit is completely fine to eat and full of nutrients, whether or not it is full of 'sugar'..this sugar differs from the kind that you find in processed sweets and such..and a supplement bar or shake?? Those contain sugar (most of them) and are just a waste of money..

I do agree that dairy is important (the yogurt and granola, cottage cheese or other cheese, etc). You want foods that are nutritious but also calorie dense for weight gain...nuts and nut butters are an excellent source of protein and good fats, and other key nutrients.

Overall, your diet is very healthy! My only suggestion would be to replace some of the fruit with some 'good' carbs, like whole grain breads, starchy veggies, ww pasta/rice/crackers, etc..add to that a little fat and protein and youre good to go..

That reminds me..your diet is pretty low in fats..with your veggies or meats, I would incorporate some good fats, like olive oil, nuts, even margarine/butter isn't bad in small amts..

Re: How does my diet look?

I think your diet looks excellent. And again, I agree with Girlygirl that eating lots of fruit is good for you so I wouldn't worry about your fruit intake cause it looks like your getting most of your carb sources from fruits and veggies(no grains). Are you a celiac? How do you feel physically from eating this way? Many people claim that whole grains are an essential part of the diet and many others claim that it poses many problems for people. I guess it all depends on YOU cause everyone is different. If you feel good eating this diet, i.e, not tired and have energy then I think it looks great.
Oh and yah, more essential fats like olive oil, fish oil, or perhaps some grinded flaxseed.

His supper only consists of chicken and rice and rice is gluten free. He did not indicate wheter or not it was plain, but it sounds like it was plain brown rice. WHat is a Bison burger?lol Is it one of those soy burgers? I thought he was talking about a healthy lean real burger...wonder what kind of bun he used, Ahhh, there's the gluten, lol. But his rice could very well be plain.

Re: How does my diet look?

You could still be right too...I mean he may or may not have put some kind of gluten substance on it.lol
He didn't specify what kind of bun that he used if he used any. So we will see if he ever posts again to tell us.

Re: How does my diet look?

This looks like a pretty healthy diet to me, tho i agree there's a lot of fructose (sugar) in it; why not lose the raisins. The fruit has lots of vitamins and minerals and fiber, so it's still good.

but overall, it looks a little spartan, the kind of diet you'd want to LOSe weight on. If you want to put on wait, I'd introduce some dairy, either in form of cheese or whole fat yogurt. Also, i don't see any grains in this diet. Whole grain bread is good.

Re: How does my diet look?

I agree with both Ding and Dawn (lol sounds funny together)...

Disgusting? How?? He gets a fair bit of protein..at every meal, which is more than most people get (considering he has CHICKEN for breakfast...)

I agree with Dawn though..at the amt youre eating, it'll be hard to put on weight. Fruit is low cal, and so you'd have to eat a LOT to gain weight from it.. I would introduce some whole grains and dairy if you are able to.. for added nutrients and calories...you could also add fat, like I mentioned before.. use heart healthy olive oil or other good oils, nuts, nut butters, even butter or marg (yes im aware of the debates on both, but you CAN use them yanno..)..

Re: How does my diet look?

Heh, Mr. Knowitall... I don't think I should be taking advice from someone who says "fruit and veggies a must? nope" and " What makes you think fast food isn't healthy? Overeating isn't healthy, not fast food." Nice try, though.
