      Milk.
      Tuna.
      Variety of nuts, and jerky.
      Olive Oil.


      These are all things I routinely buy at Costco. How is this "not truly healthy"?


      None of it is local=none of it is really all that good for you. Chemicals, antibiotics, grain fed meat, farm raised fish.

I like very few vegetables and most meats but I'm trying to find a steady diet I can stick to in order to start losing weight. Any and all advice you all may have is appreciated. Thanks.
      Just continue, but control your calories better. A Big Mac is like 540 cal and will replace easily a meal. I don't know about Taco.

      When I lost weight, I was going to McDonald's, Subway (and still go) and other fast foods regularly 2-3x/week. No side dish and only no calories drinks.

      Oh here comes Saintor with his infinite nutritional wisdom...


      OP if you want to be a skinny-fat (or as it's called in the medical field: Normal weight obese) do what that joker above is suggesting.


      If you want to actually be healthy and fit, start eating real, locally produced food.

      Of course, you have no clue what you are talking about. I do some resistance training and I am more athletic than skinny-fat, mind you.

      Despite frequenting fast food restaurant for decades, my average blood pressure for a 44yo is like 109/73, which is at the minimum of range for 15-19yo.

      OP, just don't listen to little Ayatollahs such as our knows-it-all friend above.

      saintor - you're just wrong, flat out, no other explanation, WRONG.

      there are other important factors to consider in foods than just calories. just because a big mac has 540 calories, does not mean it should be used as a meal replacement.

      first, the macro nutrient ratio is a disaster. which may not matter for how much you weigh, but it will matter for how you look. Now if you and OP don't care about how you look, have at it.

      Secondly, the makeup of the macro nutrients themselves is not equal. Processed food is well known for it's breakdown and suffered quality of protein and fat quality. So again, if you don't care how you look or how to reacts in your body, then have at it.

      There are plenty of people with normal blood pressure and normal weight who eat McDonald. However, this is the HEALTH & FITNESS forum. So we tend to want to be a bit above the average "I don't look THAT bad in a mirror" goal of most Americans.

      I'm gonna go ahead and just say: Mcdonalds and fast food has NO PLACE in a healthy diet, not even as a cheat meal. Can you eat it? SURE! is there ANY REASON at all that you ever SHOULD, no, not once, not ever. The better you want to look/feel/perform the more you should stay away from this crap.

      You're right, afterall you have your own personal anecdotal evidence, where all I have is education, certifications, and about 300+ clients of proof.

      It can certainly. I am not suggesting using it as a replacement most the time. Occasionally, it won't hurt you despite the Religious tone of some over-zealous people here.

      It is foolish to suggest that fast food has zero nutrition. A BM for instance provides almost half of the daily required proteins for a normal person. Sugar is relatively low and there is even 3g of fiber in it (like an apple). The real problem is the sodium. But after decades, it didn't harden my arteries, as proven by my low blood pressure.

      This guy could contribute too.

      OP, continue to eat them in moderation along with a fair variation of food. It will not kill you.

      Arsenic won't kill you either, when taken in moderate doses. Long term health effects are a different story, tho. McDonalds=arsenic as far as I'm concerned. I'm not eating it, evah!

      This might be the first time I've ever agreed with Saintor, at least partially. Sure you should only ever eat beef from a cow you raised yourself, feeding imported grass and holy water, but the reality is that you eat a variety of food from a variety of places. I'd like to see you visit your in-laws and not eat their lowly Walmart ground beef, or refuse to stop in and eat at Taco Bell when you drive with them to the beach.

      Nice straw man argument. There is a big difference between occasionally eating something due to a social circumstance and doing all of your grocery shopping at a place that doesn't sell quality food.

      Ever heard of sarcasm? And if you think that eating processed foods, foods produced with chemicals and antibiotics, and made with preservatives aren't bad for you, you're just delusional. But I'm sure you'll be shocked in 15 years when you find out you have cancer.

      That is alarming and crazy beliefs.

      Here is a clue for you; people never got older and healthier than now. Cancer death rates is going *down*.


    16. 04-15-2012 09:16 PM #41
      Yeah because Cancer treatment hasn't evolved at all.

      How about number of cancer patients? Is that going down? Diabetes? high blood pressure? Obesity? Heart disease?

      You're a hack. Stop posting.

      All those trends are related to eating too much / not burning enough (not mentioning tobacco) and to the fact that there are systematically more sickness when people get older. Zero proof of "non-quality" food causing sickness Z-E-R-O. Just crazy beliefs from your part.

      You get sick when you get older? I thought people were living longer and healthier than ever before? That's what you just said a few posts ago. I didn't know cancer was caused by eating to much by the way. That's a new one. I also enjoyed the part where you completely ignored the fact that cancer treatment has involved hence why less people die from it.

      Also these are not "crazy beliefs on my part." Are you really trying to say that eating meat processed with antibiotics and chemicals isn't detrimental? A lot of these practices haven't been around long enough for us to understand the full impact of the long term implications. It's not a stretch to imagine that these things could be potentially dangerous, and if you were even slightly involved in the health and fitness world you would know that I'm far from the only fitness professional with these concerns.

      But then again I just wasted 3 minutes of my life trying to argue with a guy that tells people trying to get into better shape to eat McDonald's cheeseburgers.

      That's just plain dishonest.... I wrote "there are systematically more sickness when people get older". Not surprised that if you understand that part, you don't get the rest right.

      The only REAL problem with fast food is that people tend to eat too much at once of it. Otherwise, part of nutrition with various groups of food, there is no other problem except the ones that you create between your two ears.

      You're right Saintor, eating "chicken" that's been sent through a centrifuge then loaded with ammonia and dyed is healthy.

      Mmmm, McNuggets.... I can't stop eating them.


      You do realize that water is fluorated and was never of a better quality before? What you said is meaningless unless you prove the REAL consequences.
