just take fish oil and don't eat a lot of other saturated fat and you'll be fine. Or eat a fuckload of tough flavorless chicken breasts smothered in hot sauce like every other culinarily uncreative meathead :P.
Or just get all of your protein from seitan, soymilk, tofu and greek yogurt like me. Seitan actually has great protein macros and is easy to prepare yourself.
Total calories > macros > micronutrients.
I usually feel better after working out if sick or hungover, especially after some cardio. No matter how you feel, it couldnt've hurt.
Eating really clean becomes exponentially harder after a while. Can't look at basic instagrams, have to force-feed myself salads. I've found that a high quality balsamic vinaigrette with grape must helps a lot. And just putting sauces on everything, been dumping chimichurri on meats.
I'm paranoid about sugar so I don't touch any. I'm eating 2k a day, give or take, maintenance is probably around 2600. The worst thing I eat, besides alcohol, are organic bread crumbs made of rice flour that I put on my cod, but it has no flavor. I soak the cod in almond milk and lemon juice beforehand. I try to eat quite a bit of good fats from guacamole, cottage cheese, olive oil, fish, etc.

And said cod is tasteless because you're trying too hard to eat clean. Expending a few calories to create a delicious sauce or breading and just controlling your calories elsewhere will make it so much less painful.
Emerging evidence in murine model that wheat gluten in seitan etc downregulates lipolysis and b-oxidation related gene expression while simultaneously inhibiting leptin binding is concerning. Gluten may become something to keep an eye on even for non-celiac folk

Yea, it's not just insulin or a normal post-prandial response inhibiting lipolysis + b-oxidation. And it's only the one study so far.

At the very least, get some seasonings to make this stuff palatable. I felt like a sucker for instagram hype when I picked up some Flavor God seasonings last fall, but now I can't imagine not having them. They blow the usual suspects out of the water.
Mice fed an isocaloric high fat, gluten inclusive diet gained more weight, more fat, had worse insulin sensitivity, higher baseline blood glucose and insulin, and lower amounts of enzymes involved in fat burning.
