    No. You lost all your credibility when you said this: Just because something worked for you doesn't mean it's magic. As I said earlier, I lost crazy weight (40+lbs in 3 months) once eating nothing but protein bars. Still would not recommend it to others. Wait.. I saw this post in another thread.. Do as I say, not as I do? [​IMG]
    I suggested to him, if he had high cholesterol levels, he should lay off eggs and limit to 2 per week. Christ, people aren't allowed recommendations here? what are we in silent forums? you prove nothing. You really want to bring other posts in this? is that how low you stoop to make a pointless argument? By the way, I had pizza and beers tonight, you have an opinion about that too? What I eat once in a while has nothing to do with how I eat on a daily basis, talk about credibility... You want to be styleforum police on every single post? you win, go ahead and waste your time.

    Did you work out today? Probably not. One thing you're forgetting is the toll these shitty foods take on your energy levels and digesting system. That Five Guys meal is going right through you leaving you will nothing of nutritional value and you're probably tired and unproductive as a result.

    What?

    I find that its possible to cook decent (awesome tasting) food and still be nutritious. I don't NEED cheat meals but I won't be a douchebag when I go out with friends on weekends.

    Your prejudice against eggs is just that, a prejudice, based on outdated information. Granted, some nutrition "scientists" aren't to be trusted, as the outcome of their studies depends on who foots the bill and/or they often employ flawed methodology. But most recent research (like this one showing eating 2 eggs a day is healthier than 1 a day [​IMG]) have indicated that the links between (1) dietary cholesterol and blood cholesterol and (2) dietary saturated fat and cholesterol are strenous at best, and often not nearly significant enough to outweigh other factors (hereditary, activity level etc.)

    In any case, egg is one of the most healthy foods one can find. High-quality protein, no carb, only 80 calories a pop, and can be prepared in a myriad of ways. Fack, I'm heading to the kitchen for some egg benedict right now.

    3 eggs, scrambled
    Blueberries
    1 cup coffee

    Salad (romaine, tomato, black beans, tortilla strips, roasted corn) with chicken, a bit of BBQ sauce. It was the lowest-calorie salad at Panera so I got it. Met some friends for lunch.
    2 cups coffee
    Lots of water

    1 chocolate chip cookie

    Flounder fillet with red wine/lemon sauce and various seasonings
    Roquefort on a few crackers
    1 glass cabernet
    Some spinach

    Dinner was good. Mmm.

    Conne, I know you're trying to eat healthy, and I heard about this place near campus, Phat Wraps, on 12th & High, that's supposedly healthy. Haven't gone there myself yet, but I know many people who swear that it's good food & healthy. It's at least better than Five Guys (and, living in the gateway, whenever I party at my apartment, it's way too easy to roll down to Five Guys and get 1000+ calories of awfully good tasting food). Also, down at the North Market, pastaria has some great pasta (and sauces), and they've got to have something that's healthy (i'm a big fan of their fusili & pesto). Just stay away from their tiramisu. It's addictively good. Also, if you plan on cooking, they have fresh meat & organic veggies at the north market also. But you probably already knew that, given the locale's name. Also, relatively speaking, zPizza in the Short North has quality pizza that isn't as bad for you as chain stuff, or any food that's near campus. here is a list of their nutrition facts, so as to get a bearing to how relative I was speaking. I'm trying to think of good places to eat in the city that are also healthy, and the list is short. But as long as you experiment at home as well, you can probably utilize all the healthy options in the city and not get annoyed before you leave. Good luck! Also, I hate finals.

    I assumed the lack of updates meant he had been unable to adhere to such a restrictive diet that only allotted half servings of fries and tiny bacon cheeseburgers each day.

    I'm going to go out on a limb (okay, not really) and predict that Conne gains ten pounds during his DC internship. This thread is going to be full of lists of happy hour bar food.

    Please keep updating. I want to feel better about my own eating habits.

    Sorry guys, I moved back to NY this week so it's been hectic.

    On the one travel day I did eat poorly. Breakfast was OK (eggs, several types of fruit, some bacon, coffee) but I had a Chick-fil-a grilled chicken sandwich for lunch (w/fries) and spaghetti w/meatballs and sauteed spinach for dinner.

    Yesterday:

    3 eggs scrambled
    Coffee

    Grilled chicken breast, mozzarella, tomato, balsamic vin panini
    Diet Coke
    A few mini choco chip cookies Mother made

    Grilled chicken, spinach, and red/green pepper & garlic sauteed. Little bit of oil and balsamic for dressing.
    1.5 cans of Guinness

    Wasn't very hungry as you can tell.

    Gotta break the fry habit, man. And I say this is as long-time lover of fries. They're awful for you. I know it's standard to think burger/chicken sandwich + fries, but you're better off getting another sandwich than the fries.

    I've given up chips with sandwiches which was incredibly hard. I wonder if I shoudl go the other way around? A small bag of baked or maybe even kettle cooked chips can't be that bad if you do it once or twice a week at the most.
