Healthy food for me. I need to lose weight and I want to start eating healthy.?

Question by Rory: Healthy food for me. I need to lose weight and I want to start eating healthy.?
Any ideas for healthy food?

Best answer:

Answer by Glazbinator
– Every meal and snack should contain some protein and fiber to help fill you up & keep you full.

– Your protein sources should be lean (e.g. fish, chicken, beans & legumes (also a source of fiber), tofu, nuts & seeds…)

– You should eat a wide variety of fruits and vegetables… in their whole form is best. Also, keep in mind that they lose nutrients the longer they sit after being picked, so sometimes frozen is a better option. and be careful for pesticides… always wash your fruits & veggies before eating them!

– If you consume dairy products, make sure to keep them low fat or fat-free. You could also substitute milk alternatives such as soy, almond, or rice milk (and cheese, yogurt, etc…)

– The majority, if not all, of your grain products should be whole-grain. This can be whole wheat, oatmeal, quinoa, bulgur, amaranth, barley, brown rice, etc… the possibilities are virtually endless! Don’t eat refined grains! This is one of the biggest downfalls for people trying to lose weight. They spike your blood sugar and make you hungry again in an hour. Not to mention they have much fewer nutrients than whole grains, and the ones that are there are added in artificially… yuck!

Hope I helped & good luck!

I bought a grill book that was good for grilling meats. marinate the meat 1 or 2 days ahead of time so under temp wont be a big problem. when I go camping I dont make food a priority so I make sandwitches ect. Can food is quick and easy. Food tv as 30 min. meals that can be made on a gas grill. I like packaged freezed dried food from the army supply store. charcole is great for any meats. have you ever been camping before?

Question by Josh: I need help with choosing a topic for my Argumentation Essay?
For arguing, like this point vs. that point

My interests are soccer, history, and food/health. I would really like to do something along the lines with food and health since I think it is easy to argue about.

Thanks!
