rustypouch: Whisky.


That just makes me drunk and eventually having to pee. Does not help me feel full. In fact, it usually has me craving Jack in the Box tacos.

I have this taco recipe I do. Roasted chicken, diced, sauteed in some fresh tomatillo sauce with shredded kale. It's delicious, and fairly guilt free on some warm corn tortillas. 

Chicken Tinga is awesome as well. 

Lettuce wraps filled with five-spice ground turkey, topped with cilantro leaves, cucumber, carrot, and chopped peanuts are pretty delicious.

Salad with poached chicken breast and ginger dressing. 

Chicken, marinated with fresh oregano and dill, lemon, olive oil, and salt/pepper. Grilled over a hot fire (you want a little char). Chopped or cut on the bias, and stuffed into pita with lettuce, tomato, feta, and some hummus, tzatziki, or tahini sauce.

Pollo a la plancha (recipe) has been a favorite lately. Butterflied chicken breast, pounded thin, marinated with garlic, spices, and lime. Simple rice steamed with garlic and bay leaf and delicious black beans made with a bit of bacon. Really simple and seriously delicious.

Bay leaf tastes like leperous, rotting feet

I eat high protein and high fat so bacon and butter are staples for me.  It isn't difficult for me to find the good recipes.

Lentil soup.  Helps me poop good, too.
 
2018-03-08 04:34:15 PM  
Chicken, bacon, avocado, tomato salad.  You can jazz it up or eat it plain.

Not too bad for you even with croutons and dressing.

Buy a big thing of Ole corn tortillas, cans of refried beans, block of guvment cheese. Make ghetto quesadillas.

If you want to get really wild, add some meat

Oh and the dollar store sells cans of sardines. Eat those too.

Don't eat till you're full, eat till you're no longer hungry.

Generally working with spices helps a lot.  The instant pot has been great as it allows for quick melding of flavors and cooking down lentils and minimizes the need for oil.  Down 7 pounds in 2 weeks!
 
2018-03-08 05:07:45 PM  
Cut the soda, fast food and restaurants and you'll be fine. Cook your own food. Mix in a salad (dont even need dressing ... little lemon juice, raw onion and feta works for me) oh and drink lots of beer.
 
2018-03-08 05:08:05 PM  
Hot peppers and sticky rice.

Toast, hummus and sardines. You can add fresh cilantro as needed.

It's even better with those little green ones -- mung beans? If you can find those.

Riced cauliflower. Sounds disgusting. But i just take a whole head and pulse a few times in my processor. Then cook it in some garlic infused Olive oil until it is tender.

Then spiralized zucchini in place of spaghetti noodles.

Eating without guilt and being full
 
2018-03-08 05:11:41 PM  
Seriously, get off the sugar! Coffee for instance should not taste like a liquid candy bar. Suck it up and drink that shiat black. It's there to wake you up, not taste good.
 
2018-03-08 05:11:41 PM  
Threw out all the salt except the lawry's, and use just spices in my cooking. That and staying the fark away from fast food keeps the diet in check...
 
2018-03-08 05:11:43 PM  
I've found I actually prefer cauliflower rice to regular boring ass rice. I mean, rice is really just a vehicle for something tastier, like butter and salt at a minimum. So cauliflower rice with butter and salt, and it's healthier, and has more flavor.

Also, the cauliflower doesn't seem to break down as quickly as, say, white rice does. My wife does a good dirty rice with cauliflower and the grains don't collapse to a sticky mush the way normal rice would.

BBQ ribs, potato salad, crepes, and beer.


(I might be making the wrong list)

Two chicken breast fillets, half a cup of brown rice, and a cup of mixed frozen vegetables or broccoli. No seasoning on anything, maybe a dollop of barbecue sauce if I'm feeling adventurous.

After evening workouts, I like to eat two scrambled eggs, one chicken sausage, and a slice of plain wheat toast.

Sometimes, I'll do spinach and ricotta ravioli with a bit of pesto, and some sauteed (olive oil, no seasoning) brussels sprouts on the side. Or more frozen vegetables or broccoli.

These three food combinations are my dinner at least one night a week each, if not more. I play pub trivia every Tuesday with friends, and either order a caesar salad (no chicken) or a turkey sandwich (if I didn't eat much protein with lunch) while I'm out. I usually restrict myself to two beers, sometimes three.

I like how these food items taste, so it doesn't feel like I'm "working through it."

Most other dinners (if I go out), I just eat whatever the f*ck I want, and work it off later.

beef broth. The real stuff, not that bullion crap.


brown some bones, put in a pot with vegetbles and water. boil for a long time, like 24 hours. Or in a pressure cooker for 2-3 hours
 
2018-03-08 05:13:04 PM  
spinach cooked in olive oil
beans
tomato sauce

the most filling non meat meal i've ever found

.  I'm a personal chef specializing in Mediterranean style cuisine, so I'm getting a kick out of these replies...

In all seriousness, eat boneless skinless chicken, roasted with vegetables and a sauce without sugar.  That alone should sate most appetites.

Also, don't be afraid of fat, be afraid of added sugars.  Fat keeps you feeling full and helps you absorb a host of vitamins.  Don't over-complicate things.  Just eat real food, cooked from scratch, made in large enough batches and with enough flavor that you don't get sick of it...

also, get away from carbs. High carb diet puts your glucose levels on a roller coaster. when it drops is when you feel hungy and get biatchy.

A high fat diet your glucose levels are much more stable and you can go for a longer time without eating

This is a recipe for healthy Buffalo Chicken Tenders that was accepted by Taste of Home.  They changed it to whole chicken breasts, but I like the tenders.  I sometimes double the recipe because it goes so fast in my house.
Ingredients
1 Bottle Steve and Ed's Wing Sauce (or use your favorite or your own)
2 pounds of chicken tenders
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1-1/4 cups panko bread crumbs
Directions
Pour 1/3 cup wing sauce into a shallow dish. Add chicken breasts and turn to coat. Let stand 15 minutes or refrigerate, covered, up to 24 hours.
Preheat oven to 400°. Drain chicken, discarding marinade. In a shallow bowl, mix flour and pepper. Place bread crumbs and remaining wing sauce in separate shallow bowls. Dip chicken in flour mixture to coat all sides; shake off excess. Dip in wing sauce, then in bread crumbs
Place chicken in a baking pan. Bake 25-30 minutes.

Three servings of protein a day, gluten-free when eating grains, water, always choosing organic and staying away from additives in the non-dairy milks and non-dairy yogurts. Its hard to find a soymilk like that, but you can make it yourself.

My diet is crap. Managed to lose 5 pounds in February despite sleeping most of it and eating garbage.

Metamucil (citrus)

As much as you can reasonably tolerate.

 It tastes like Tang, it's filling, only 45 calories per tbsp. and it keeps you regular.

 Drink it fast though, let it sit for a few minutes and it turns to gel in the glass.

 Also, always wash you glass immediately. If the stuff sets up, good luck cleaning it.
 And for chrissakes, don't get the "unflavored" kind, it tastes like poison.

Good advice. The Mediterranean diet comes out on top in most diet reviews.
Eat lots of beans and pulses, and oily fish, too.
I find that Greek yogurt and berries for dessert will fill you up and give you some protein if your meal has been mostly veg.
