    There are tons of recipes that are very creative and taste great that can be made with any number of those items listed above. There is a reason we are by far the fattest country in the world and it has to do with many of us being raised and brainwashed from a young age about what is good food, what we concieve as tasting good, and what we are raised eating (this includes myself). Up until about 3 years ago I just ate whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted, which equated to whatever tasted the best (usually garbage food like pizza, soda, heavy creams and sauces on meals for dinner, supersized italian dinners, etc.). I ended up with a severe stomach problem and had to go on meds for it for two years and have changed my whole diet ever since. You'll get used to 'boring' food eventually, especially once you see the overall results it bears.




    true, but there is a happy medium.

    there are good reasons to limit grain and bean intake, for instance, but limited amounts of brown rice, whole grains and various beans can add to the variety of diet. while there are great reasons to limit fats - the occasional bit of pork or cheeses can add to the variety of the diet, as well.

    Kunks diet is extremly limited - which is very healthy and obvviously works for him. but he is totally removing the element of enjoyment from his diet (to a large extent). that seems radical, and hard to say how sustainable it is.

    Doritos are not the only 'unhealthy' food out there. I would say atleast 75% of the shit in the markets (atleast here in the US) is absolute garbage that pollutes your body. A healthy diet, consisting of healthy food, is probably the number one most important thing in a person life as far as well-being goes (or atleast it should be).

    It's a semantic issue. What's healthy for individuals varies. A grocery list of approved foods is ineffective for habitual change and unnecessary in most cases.

    I never buy any low fat milk.
    Whole milk is the best for us.

    Learn to hunt and fish. You'll have the freshest leanest cleanest meat you could possibly eat. Take for instance venison, 99 percent lean with no growth hormones or chemicals to worry about. It'll also save you big bucks at the store not to mention the hiking involved to get to the good hunting/fishing spots is good exercise.

    Yeah but bumpers are expensive and I hate having to powerwash the gore off my truck just to make some jerky.

    Animals and fish are still affected by the environment that they live in. Not all of us have access to pristine waters and land from which we can hunt/fish. There are places near NYC, and I'm guessing Boston as well, where eating locally-caught fish are harmful. And if those waters are so polluted that I can't eat the fish, would I chance it to eat the animals who eat/drink from those same waters?

    I realize that you are writing from Williamsburg, MO and not Williamsburg, BK.

    That's true however you don't have to go far from a big city to get to better grounds either. A decent sized deer will yield around a 100 pounds of meat so a few hours drive to upstate NY would be well worth it. Fishing is a bit more tricky. I live in the middle of nowhere but if you eat the fish from a pond that has runoff from a crop field you'll eat a lot of poison. The thing is you are in control of the when, how and from where factors which is way better than most store bought items.

    What he said. I kill 2 or 3 deer a year and never have to buy red meat, which is nice considering I don't like factory farms and try not to support them.

    Not sure if you saw this, Señor Crane, but this is what I got in November.

    Other than that, it's O.J., Purple Stuff, Soda, and Sunny D.
