So, with all the upheavals one of my biggest problems between eating right and not is about to be solved. Most of the time from shortly onwards I'm going to cooking for just me. No more having to avoid crap the kids won't eat, or spices, or all the other stuff bland palates require. This seems like a perfect opportunity to eat better, since I am about to be back at work full time and eating lunch needs to be a thing. Since it will be nights, I'm going to do my damnedest to take leftovers for lunch rather than eat Sheetz or something all the time, since that gets pricey and fills me with crap. Now there's been so many diet fads and ways and such that I'm totally out of date. Also, I figure whatever you guys are doing may just work for me since you're real people and not some hipster who gets paid to BS about what they eat and just slims down with nose candy. My general preference would be for something low carb, since while I will miss my carbs badly they are what is larding me up like a blimp and where most of my empty calories come from. Left to my own devices I eat a lot of beans (esp. black), eggs, bacon, pork and chicken. I'm happy to eat veggies too, even the stuff a lot of folks won't like spinach and such. Breakast is probably going to be eggs and sausage if I'm not being paranoid about good honest fats. I always take butter over margarine and have felt much better for it. I learned not to just eat breakfast for every meal last low carb, when the entire world fell out my arse over a long and horrific day, so this time I will have to find some sort of grease trap bulking food! They're building a Planet Fatness in Eden near work, so I'm planning on joining there (or getting roped into the Y family plan, not sure yet) so I can do some calorie burning, got that part covered. It's just which Way of the Food to go with. Does this sound like anyone's working plan? I'm always better with simple, some of these diets are bloody mad complicated.
