Quick question:

So my body is finally catching up to me and I can't eat Macdonalds whenever. Now I work out 5 days a week but being on campus there is never any quality food to eat. Everything I eat is high in fats or I just don't eat at all. I need some on the go, economically sound foods

So what can y'all suggest for:

Breakfast
Lunch
Dinner
Pre/post workout meal
Protein shakes

    Home-cooking>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>fast food.

    Also, don't mess with fried foods a lot. I know they're good, but they're not good for you. Nothing wrong with eating fried foods, but don't make it a habit.

    Breakfast- I love making oatmeal, pancakes or scrambled eggs, grits and toast.

    Lunch- you can eat the oatmeal, pancakes or scrambled eggs, grits and toast, or you can make a sandwich with a bowl of fruit.

    Dinner- pretty much anything baked(although fried fish would be good as well).

    Pre/post workout meal- I always drink a cup of water before working out and Gatorade during/after working out. The breakfast/lunch I already mentioned, you can eat those after working out, too.

    Protein shakes- I don't drink protein shakes, nor take any supplements.

    Ok cool so pretty much I gotta let go of all the heavy foods.......ugh ok I'ma make a run to walmart and stock up on some healthy foods then.

    So lots of fruit. Oatmeal/cereal for breakfast. I can't eat tuna so what else would you suggest as a substitute???

    And I take it I should only be drinking water.

    U wanna lose weight or gain? If lose low carbs, stay away from bread, pasta, fruits, etc. Get enough protein tho to maintain muscle u have already. Drink plenty of water, stay away from soda and juices as much as possible, those calories add up.
    If u wanna gain weight then do the complete opposite and get those carbs in. Still get a lot of protein and healthy fats such as flax seed oil, fish oil, omega-3 which is found in fish.

    Not entirely but keep it at a minimum if one is trying to lose fat. Why u think vegetarians can be overweight? All those sugary carbs in fruits turn into fat if unused.

    True but the ones I kno don't overindulge and still end up overweight while us meat eaters stay lean cause we don't eat as many carbs, more protein in our diet.

    I mean yea u dont gotta stop eating bread literally, just watch your carb intake. When trying to lose fat a good trick is carb cycling. For 2-3 days out the week eat a low carb diet like 30 grams. Then the next couple days moderate around 100-150 grams then on one day carb up, talkin bout 300-400 grams of carbs. So u can get your wheat bread on during your high carb day. Imma carb cycle next month to lean out more.

    I feel that carb argument. I put on some weight cause I'm a carb fanatic (especially pasta) but with all things remaining the same and reducing carbs I began to lean out

    Breakfast - Egg whites, soy or turkey sausage and toast
    Lunch - Tunafish sandwich with pineapple or some kind of mixed fruit or PB and J with a glass of milk
    Dinner - Probably the same or organic brown rice with stir fried vegetables

    I usually take one scoop of protein with 8 ounces of water after I work out and before I sleep and I never drink soda but I drink bottles of water through the course of a day or aloe vera.
