    Alright, this is sort of cooking, sort of dietary/nutrition, sort of a
    collection of other things, so I am putting it here and a couple other
    places to get a nice, wide ranging response.

    Allow me to explain my situation. I am a fifth year senior who is going
    to be living not in a dorm/not on a meal plan for the first time. As it
    turns out, I have no idea how to keep myself properly nourished. I
    REALLY REALLY want to avoid the ramen, pizza, and hot dogs menu route
    of many college students. So, to that end, I am collecting advice from
    cooks and other people who know a lot about food.

    Here is a bit about me so you can know what you are working with.

    6 foot 4, 170 lbs.
    I play competitive club ultimate frisbee, so I engage in strenuous
    exercise 10-15 hours a week. I use a ton of energy, so it takes a lot
    of food to keep me going.

    2 questions:

    #1
    what does a guy like me eat to keep my energy up and try to establish
    healthy eating habits for life?
    #2
    How do I cook that?

    Submit whatever you like. 1 meal, a weeklong menu/meal plan, 1 recipe,
    whatever you please.

    Thanks!!!

  2. Hi there,
    I am a Personal Trainer Specialist and soon to be Nutrition Wellness
    Specialist. Thought you could maybe use my help!
    A good lunch or dinner (maybe even a snack in your case! lol) which is loaded
    with protein (helps build, maintain and repair muscle tissue) and also
    contains complex carbohydrates and fibre (gives you energy and keeps your
    feeling of "fullness" longer) is tuna salad. It tastes great, takes only
    minutes to prepare and is relatively inexpensive. Try this after a workout:

    Here's the recipe:

    *Half a head of lettuce (less is also good if you want a little more
    focus to be on the protein intake at
    this meal)
    *A small amount of light caesar or ranch dressing (flavoured low fat mayo
    works good too) - just enough to coat the lettuce
    *2 cans of flaked white tuna packed in WATER (or salmon-whichever you prefer)
    *teaspoon of shredded cheese, sesame seeds, almonds (all optional)
    *cup of diced celery and carrots (or whatever veggies you like)
    *diced onions (optional)
    *pepper to taste

    Mix this all together and eat up!

    Excellent site! I have to admit I'm usully leary of seeing someone's
    personal dietary advice, but you hit the nail square on the head. Great
    recommendations all around... then on top of that, I got to see some
    high quality art work. You're quite a pro!
     
  8. Half a head of lettuce (less is also good if you want a little more
    focus to be on the protein
    intake at
    this meal)
    *A small amount of light caesar or ranch dressing (flavoured low fat
    mayo
    works good too) - just enough to coat the lettuce
    *2 cans of flaked white tuna packed in WATER (or salmon-whichever you
    prefer)
    *teaspoon of shredded cheese, sesame seeds, almonds (all optional)

    This is some sort of a sick joke. Right?

    Whoever wrote this hasn't the vaguest idea of proteins and the dangers
    of combining proteins, particularly animal proteins, most particularly
    from cans.

    This is a recipe for a stroke, particularly for a man.

    PLEASE look into Natural Hygiene, as espoused by Harvey and Marilyn
    Diamond. Their diet will show you how to get the proteins you need,
    including some animal proteins if you wish, in a healthy, balanced way.

    Start with this book:
    http://www.overstock.com/cgi-bin/d2.cgi?PAGE=PRODUCT&PROD_ID=221112&cid=64664&fp=F

    I also heartily recommend that you read:
    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0446358754/104-6145205-2302315?v=glance

    Let your common sense be your guide and decide for yourself if the
    above recipe will aid your body or not.

    To your health,
    VP

    combining proteins is a false notion "invented" by food faddist
    Adelle Davis. She admitted that there is no basis for it
    (that it is nonsense).

    the notion of combining proteins would have you eat a legume with
    a grain to fill in the relative deficiency in amino acid
    distribution relative to egg white, the standard reference.
    there's nothing even vaguely related to that in this recipe.

    The recipe didn't call for canned anything.

    The recipe would be better as described by PTSNWS (with
    the vegetables which you edited out of the recipe, VP).

    Natural Hygiene appears to be nothing but a marketing banner
    about which books and newsletters will flourish.
     
  10. Ed:

    Do try to read and comprehend before responding.

    I was not referring to "proper food combining" to get proteins, which
    everyone who knows the very basics of nutritions knows is not necessary
    because for the most part we recycle our own amino acids (Duh!), I was
    referring to eating proteins of different types at one meal, as the
    "recipe for a stroke" above suggests, because the body will go haywire
    trying to digest them and they will sit in the stomach and rot.

    Sorry! What did I miss that was in your post?

    OK, you're telling us how it works now. You say that
    eating proteins of different types at one meal will cause
    the body to go haywire and they will sit in the stomach and rot.
    That wasn't in your earlier post.

    What are the different types of protein which will make the
    body go haywire?

    Is this your personal theory, or do you have a source?

    Is there any reason to believe this?
