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.
