my healthy eating

as you guys know, i am wanting to loose some weight. tonight i think i started my self on the right track. i don't know the first thing about watching what i eat or any of that. i don't know how to cook and for the first time in a very long time, tried it again. i think i did a good job. today i went to the store and got me a George Forman grill and a microwave. afterwards, i went to the grocery store and got some chicken and steemer bags of veggies. here is what i had for dinner. is this a healthy meal to have for dinner? the green peas and corn were in a single serving bag and the rice was in a big bag, but only used about half. the chicken i seasoned with some McCormick Montreal Chicken seasonings. the chicken and rice tasted very good but the corn was real bland and the sweet peas were, well, too sweet for me. i also bought some shrimp and fish filets(?) to cook on the inside grill.

my question is, is this a good start? if not, what should i do.

lol, i thought you were making a mexican joke at first. Brown rice is just that, but spanish rice is white rice that has been browned in oil or lard and mixed with other ingredients.

Chicken breast - boiled eggs - fish - tuna - veggies - whole grain bread,
oatmeal, peanut butter - water -water - water -

If you wanna lose weight, get an appetite surpressant , ie . Venom Hyperdrive which you can get cheap off of Lockoutforums.com

Any butter in the veggies?

Keep in mind that certain condiments can kill a healthy meal.

For stuff like broccoli and squash they sell steam bags at the store. Throw the veggies in there, microwave it, and you've got yourself some good shit!

You can always season with some black pepper and lemon juice before microwaving.

Like HEC said, that meal beats fast food out of the water!

i can't eat broccoli or squash, there's really not alot of veggies i can stand to eat. the corn, sweet peas and rice were the steam bags. the corn and peas were in single servings though

You should try Green giant steamer veggies, they are frozen and steam in a ag, but eh the immune booster (peppers, broccoli) and the weight control (black beans, snow peas, carrots, edamame) are really good. They steam in a bag in4 minutes in the micro, have some butter tasting stuff on them, and it's like 150 calories for 2 servings.

wonder what you are eating, and how many calories, carbs, protein, etc...????

Try this website... www.thedailyplate.com

Green Giant corn steamer pack
90 calories, 1g Fat, 19g Carbs, 2g Protein
Green Giant peas steamer pack
60 calories, 0g Fat, 12g Carbs, 4g Protein
6oz chicken Breast
190 Calories, 1g Fat, 0g Carbs, 28g Protein
1 cup - Spanish Rice (not sure on your brand, so this is a estimate)
190 calories, 2.5g Fat, 35g Carbs, 3g Protein

I also didn't add butter, or any condiments you had, but here's a good run down:

530 Calories - 4.5g Fat - 66g Carbs - 37g Protein

Compare this to your normal dinner
2 hot dogs and a bag of chips....

780 Calories - 35g Fat - 86g Carbs - 48g Protein

You cut out 250 calories, a ton of fat. I'd personally add another chicken breast in the mix, and remove the spanish rice go get more protein.

Good work tho, it's a start

You're only as strong as you allow yourself to be...

you can buy the regular bags of frozen veggies and poke a couple holes in them and they steam the food in the microwave, no need to drop money on "special" bags, I do it all the time, as for the canned veggies, they taste better because they contain an ass load of sodium and preservatives you don't need.

i would be waisting alot of food getting regular bags of veggies though. these that i got are personal bags.

It's pretty established that your body can't use 60g of protein at once, especially since he doesn't lift. He'd be better off just ditching the rice and sticking with more greens.

Based on my schedule, I do it all the time.
I consume as much as 250grams of protein in one sitting.

But due to your muscle mass, your body will use all it can and piss out the rest. There would be absolutely no point in homeslice doing that.

I've actually lost almost 30lbs now and kept up 95% of my strength levels.
So I must be doing something right.


I work 90hrs each week and train for 14-16hrs, 6 days a week.
Not much spare time in there to get my meals in...plus I NEVER eat any sort of fast food(well besides chipotle).
Shit bro...I was working out at 3am, just to get my addiction satisfied.

How much protein should someone be getting at once? Lets say it's someone who doesn't lift, but still works out (kickboxing & a pretty intense cardio workout with pushups, situps, squats, etc)

I try to eat 1g/lb of bodyweight even when I'm not lifting. That is of course daily, but 30g per sitting is usually a pretty easy task if you're a smaller (<200lb) guy.

Depends on weight. But the standard for anyone physically active or looking to maintain or build muscle is 1-1.5 grams of protein per lb of body weight daily. So divide that up among how many meals you eat per day.
