If you don't enjoy beans you are a child.
Tons of fruit and vegtables... if you must eat carbs make your breads all whole grain. I recently switched my bread to a "Quinoa bread" from Trader Joes. Delicious and only 70 calories a slice.
Someone else mentioned this but its dead on- shop the perimeter of the store...
On a night you dont feel like cooking- toss a Kashi pizza in the oven, and top it with cut up red pepper, fresh garlic, and maybe a lean protein of your choosing.
Whole pizza has only 810 calories, and you can pretty easily share it with someone, if you make yourself a salad to go with it.
My morning breakfast is the following most days:
-giant coffee, no cream, just truvia.
-blended shake: 8 ice cubes, 1 cup Kefir in flavor of your choosing. handful of raspberries. about 8 strawberries, handful of blackberries (been on sale the past few weeks too). 1 scoop of "Amazing Grass" Green super food goji and acai, and 1 scoop of "Amazing Grass" 15,000 ORAC . Both of these are just chock full of anti oxidants, as is the dark fruit. Blend that all up for 30 seconds, and you'll have a delicious drink that leaves you full for 3-4 hours. Plus I feel ready to run through a wall after that.
Because the alternative is never ever eating Chipotle. And how long will that last? Then when you eventually go you're going to get the burrito with everything on it and it's all lost. IMO, better to get letting yourself have the foods you want as long as try and get yourself the healthiest possible option there.
99% of our existence on this planet was as hunter-gatherers. that is what we evolved to digest and live off of ....
so. no dairy, no grain (wheat, rice, bread, etc.), no sugar, no sweeteners. plenty of fresh veggies, fruits, nuts, berries and lean meat. cook with coconut oil. then spend 4-5 hours a day walking around looking for woolly mammoths ...
I think the biggest thing that pisses me off about food is when I eat legit black beans and rice at like a Cuban place but can NEVER come close to replicating it at home. I could eat it twice a week and be happy but it never turns out as well as varous restaurants.

It's pretty easy to just "not eat at Chipotle." I mean, I agree that you should have some cheat meals/times that are designed to let you indulge, but what's the point around designing your diet around Chipotle if it only allows you to eat one thing there that isn't really what you want?
That's like going on a low-carb diet but being determined that you are going to eat at Subway-- sure, you can go in and get a low-carb salad, but all you're really doing is pissing yourself off because what you really want is a decadent sub with fabulous-smelling fresh bread. It's like an alcoholic hanging out by themselves at a bar, drinking water.
probably bacon fat
we definitely drank the milk of the animals we killed. Of course it was raw milk, not the toxic mess on the shelves at giant.
Hunter-gatherers don't need no stinking pharmaceuticals or air conditioning, either, IMO. Screw living past 35 years old!
I'm sure its something like that, it just angers me. Toss some stuff like that in and it kinda defeats the purpose
That is the point. Eating healthy is essentially just removing the good tasting stuff.
people were bigger, stronger and faster then. better teeth. less disease. if they died at 35 it was because a saber tooth tiger ate them or there were no band-aids.
& I really doubt they drank the milk after killing an antelope or deer. how would that even work?

Did you know the egg white has more protein than the yolk? I've never heard of properly sourced healthy bacon but I'm definitely willing to give it a try.
Sure, the yolk is mostly fat.
Grocery store/factory farm pork has had teh omega 3's almost entirely removed. good pig still has them. I don't even know what your argument is.
There is a lot more to a balanced diet than minimizing fat/carbs and maximizing protein.
Eliminate most everything white. You can eat bread, rice and pasta, but just do whole grains and not anything made with white, processed flour. Lean meats, fruits and veggies with whole grains is the ticket as others have already said. IMHO.

This is the kind of stuff that turns most people off eating paleo. Just say "it's a pretty health way to eat" and leave out all the pseudo-anthropological mumbo jumbo.
- try not to drink your calories
- maintain decent portion control
- limit intake of carbs and sugars
- eat a lot of lean protein
- drink a lot of water
At the end of the day, you can probably eat whatever you want if you exercise enough. However, if you're going to eat a lot of pizza and chinese food, that ish will catch up with you if you don't live an active lifestyle.
My problem is that I am always hungry, we don't have a fridge at work, and I have a plethora of delicious, unhealthy food options within a 3 minute walk of my desk.
Instead of making that 3 minute walk, take fruit which doesn't need a fridge, and a shit load of trail mix and nuts. And don't snack at night or eat a huge dinner.
Oh, and eliminate white potatoes too along with everything white including processed sugar and flour, white bread etc. I am eating more baked sweet potatoes too with cinnamon and maple syrup and just a little butter. You can get unprocessed sugar in any health foods store. fwiw.
What Eli said. I have a huge bag of nuts at my desk and I also bring bananas/protein bars to work too.
Also, I just started to eat healthy a couple months ago and it isn't hard at all. Bring a sandwich to work with Fruit/Yogurt/Cottage Cheese/Nuts for lunch. Grill/Cook Chicken and Fish, Saute Veggies, Brown Rice, and side salad for dinner. Drink Water instead of Soda and other crap.
I usually just eat a banana and protein bar for breakfast during the week (I need all the sleep I can get). Turkey Bacon/Egg Whites w/ hot sauce/Whole Wheat Toast on the weekends when I sleep in. And when I'm in need of a snack, I usually go with one of oranges, apples, nuts, greek yogurt, cottage cheese, protein bars, celery w/ peanut butter.
When I'm lazy and don't feel like cooking, I just order a grilled chicken salad from one of my go to restaurants or get Subway. And I occasionally splurge with the Chipotle Brown Rice Bowl too.

This is how I feel about the chick peas at places like Jasa Kabob in Canton that comes with like every dish. If I could make them like that I would eat them every day.
Marry a Cuban, problem solved.
