THERE IS NO SECRET! I eat all my food plain and unprocessed, which means I get enough protein, fat, and carbs for my body. So, there is NO magical combination when it comes to healthy eating! You just need to fuel your body for your needs with the right food, and eliminate the wrong food...consistently. I hardly ever eat any junk food (occasionally weekends, birthdays and vacations), and the 90% elimination of all junk food is what has given me the best results and keeps me muscular and lean. Again: eating is key....but the secret is that there IS NO SECRET. If you are willing to eat right all the time and give up eating your favorite snacks...everyday, you WILL do well. I always eat 6-to-2 eggwhites-to-eggs ratio and plain oatmeal for breakfast, and I usually have different combinations of vegetables, fish, oatmeal, 93% lean beef, and nuts throughout the day. I eat 5-6 meals per day... and that's it! No recipes and nothing fancy. I know my body, so I don't count or measure my food. I know the difference between what I need and what I want. I need protein, fats, and carbs everyday. I want pizza, but I don't eat that. Some people measure their food, and some don't. Do whatever works for you. There is no magical combination that will grant you a fit body overnight. Don't worry if you should choose the green beans or the broccoli, the oatmeal, or the brown rice. There is no right or wrong; you just need to fuel your body properly for your goals and stop eating so much crap. If you've been eating like crap all year, and suddenly you want to get lean in a record amount of time... good luck. I couldn't imagine all the crazy work it work it would take to do that. Not to mention it is probably dangerous and unhealthy. Plus, you'll never be where you would be if you were doing it right all along, instead of treating the body like an on/off switch. That is why I just keep steady all year and I never need to take drastic measures to try and get back in shape... I just stay consistent. So if you are just starting out, be very patient and don't give up. Results and progress take time and there is no quick fix. Consistency is key. Fill in the blank for this sentence.... " I have been working out and eating right consistently for 'blank' years. When the number you put in that blank keeps increasing, you'll keep getting better. And once you start, be sure to never find yourself saying,..."I'm getting back into it again".

Quoting litenbrite:

Canned Tuna and Brown Rice........just for a change! Keeps your weight in check, but you get so bored eating it.....you go right off eating! that gets you nice and slim quickly. However, a nice peice of Salmon with a little Blackening Spice, grilled Tomatoes and some Asparigus works great and is better for you.

ANY non-canned fish is better...and veggies are a requisite healthy food. But most people either can't afford fresh salmon (about ten dollars a pound)--and fresh veggies are expensive too. Frozen veggies (and fish) are cheaper but still costly when you think about consuming them every day--remember that it's best to eat 5-6 times a day. And even if you can afford the best foods, it takes time to cook them--and lack of time is the number one excuse for overall lack of fitness. Yes, eating plain foods is boring, but I would rather eat the boring foods and have the great body. It comes down to DESIRE. If a person wants to be fit badly enough, he will do whatever it takes. Lack of time or money will not matter.
