Recently, I was asked if I feel like I'm missing out/suffering at all by being health conscious. My answer is definitely not.. I eat just as much on a standard day as I did before I was health conscious, I just stay away from processed foods, sugar, and most high-carbohydrate foods. I used to drink juice instead of water and I didn't think much at all about what was good for me to eat.
Here's a sample of what goes in my lunchbox when I go to work - so everything up until around dinner time.
1 Cup of Mixed Nuts
1 Health Warrior Bar
Salad (2-3 cups spinach w/ 7oz Ribeye Steak & Caesar dressing)
Carrots w/ Ranch dressing
The Health Warrior bar and carrots w/ ranch are a new addition since I am trying to bulk up and added some calories to my diet. I may only include them on heavier workout days. These Health Warrior Bars are the only bars that I have found that appear to be all natural, grain-free, taste good, and don't have too many carbohydrates or protein.
I'm only showing all this to show how diverse your nutrition plan can still be when you avoid processed foods and sugars. The salad dressings are definitely the worst part of all this. Almost all salad dressings besides select brands are created with heavily processed oils like soybean oil, or even worse, vegetable oil. It's important to stay away from these as much as possible. If there is one thing I need to change about my diet is sauces and dressings - I eat a ton of extra virgin olive oil because I dilute my dressings with it but I need to learn how to create my own dressings.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
