  1. Hey guys I'm a non-rich average student and I don't really know much about nutrition stuff so I'm not sure if my diet is fitness-worthy. The thing is, I would really really like to get fit and strong but I don't know if I can do that with the resources I have. Going to the gym wouldn't be a problem because it's free for college students. The only foods I eat right now is brown rice(with flaxseeds), oatmeal, plain yoghurt, and milk. Fruits and vegetables are kind of expensive so I buy a packet of veggies or some fruit once a week. Oatmeal is extremely cheap so whenever I get hungry I ju
  2. I'm a vegan (vegetarian by choice, but with lactose intolerance). I also have a gluten intolerance. Whilst I'm aware gluten-free foods are a remedy to this, I'd like to take a leaf (haha,punny!) out of the paleo book and eat as minimal amounts of grains as possible for the purpose of toning up a bit. I've started doing this,but find that I'm a bit stuck for variety. I feel like my diet's going to become bland very quickly,which means it'll be more tempting to get into the thinking of "Oh,ONE chocolate won't kill me". Are there any vegans out there who've tried to cut grains out completely
  3. Hi! Several questions, but first background. I am 5'0", female, 18, and about 45 pounds overweight. 1. Half my family is doing Atkins ( the other half doesn't need to lose weight, which makes it really hard ), but I'm having a really hard time doing it because I can't seem to keep my carb count down. I'm eating the right foods, but I keep eating too many vegetables (cauliflower, brussel sprouts, green beans, etc), and I'm never sure if I'm using too much salad dressing (I like French and Caesar). Is there something I can do to make this easier, or is it something I just need to deal with?
  4. Hey everyone! So I'm brand new to Nerd Fitness, and I'm on a quest to "level-up" my life, starting with my diet. I eat pretty clean, lots of fruit, meat, and a good amount of veggies with the occasional cheat meal or indulgent dessert. I want to go as Paleo as possible, but as a college student it's going to a bit of a challenge. The dining hall limits my choices. So, I'm planning on starting with small changes, the first one being to cut out grains. I love bread and pasta--basically anything that's packed with carbs. What are some good ideas for meals/snacks that have no wheat or grains?
  5. So, I've tried a new "diet" regimen to jumpstart my progress. I've stalled in my motivation, and needed a kick in the tush. Mon/Tues, Thurs/Fri = Strict-ish paleo. No dairy, no grains. Sugars from fruit/veg only. I will eat peanuts, though. (Not peanut butter, unsalted peanuts in a nut mix for example). Sat/Sun and Wed = Free, healthy eating. A little pasta is okay, as are things like cheese and milk in my coffee Here's my reasoning: I don't believe in setting myself up for failure. Committing to 24/7 paleo is currently not realistic for the state of my willpower. I literally lasted
  6. This week I cut 90% of my grain intake. I have already cut sugar and artificial-sweeteners earlier in this challenge. People keep saying things like "where will you get your energy from without those complex carbs?" and "why would you cut out grains? Do you have some kind of health problem where you need to avoid them?" Tonight I got asked by a friend if I was trying to put my body into ketosis and how long I planned on doing it because her nutrionist friend told her that it is bad for the body to keep it in ketosis for long periods. I really didn't know what to say. Aren't the paleo and prima
