For all you health nuts... I keep reading how several people on hear dont eat fast food, well then what do you eat? Do you cook all the time? I would like to know i need to loose some wieght.
OFF TOPIC: The word pwn comes from own, but people accidently types "p" instead of "o". And using "0" instead of "o" is from the same thing they keys are right next to each other n00bs!

Both of my left and right nuts are quite healthy. Thanks for asking though.
Yeah, I cook my own food (most of the time).
Good site to visit if you have anymore questions.

I try to cook on my own but if I can't I have no problems scarfing down a Double Big Mac meal.

When I get back to school, my typical meal:
Grilled chicken breast, side veggie, small side salad.
Since I live alone at school, I need to make meals every day, instead of making some huge pot of something and eating off of it until it goes bad. I get a big bag of frozen chicken breasts and Green Giant frozen side dishes (they come in a small box and usually have 2 servings in them). I thaw the chicken out in the morning and at night, slap it on the ol' George Foreman. A healthy meal in 5 minutes.
I'm not an exercise freak, per se, but I work out and go to spinning 3x a week. When I get back to Atlanta, I'm getting a personal trainer. So I'll be an ass-kickin' machine.

Try Mui Thai and/or Brazilian Jujitsu. You'll melt pounds off faster than that fat guy Garret from Subway.

It actually is even possible to make healthy choices at many fast food places. Grilled chicken, salad with little or no dressing, and chili (beware of fingers... haha) are good healthy choices.
Generally, it's better to eat fresh food than anything pre-packaged. Look for whole grains and nuts rather than processed snacks and breads made with white flour. Try to eat more fresh fruit and vegetables than anything else. Chicken, turkey, and fish are good. Lean beef is okay in small doses; avoid pork altogether. Dairy products have been shown to help people lose weight, especially skim milk and fat-free yogurt. Creams and cheeses are okay in very small portions, but they generally have more fat. Use light olive or vegetable oil instead of butter for cooking.
What you drink also has alot to do with your health. Juices and sodas contain tons of sugar. Skip them altogether, except maybe a small glass of fresh orange juice. Drink at least 8-10 12oz. glasses of water every day.
Eat within 30 minutes of waking up in the morning, even if it's just a piece of fruit and a glass of milk, to give your metabolism a boost. Eat 5 or 6 small meals a day, but keep it very light after 6 pm.
It's not a quick-start miracle diet, but you will notice a difference. Losing weight very slowly over a long period of time is much healthier anyway.

I try to follow a plan along the lines of this:
I cut out the two snacks because I'm not doing nearly as much exercise as any USMC Officer Candidate so those extra 500 calories arent necessary.
***Read this information on nutrition***:
Also, what you drink is pretty important. I only drink water, milk, and a glass of juice a day. Since I work out everyday I drink 100 oz of water to keep hydrated. It's not just what you eat, you need to exercise 6/7days a week. If you do go get a burger, say McDonalds or a better place like Fudruckers, just get the burger, don't waste your money on nasty fries and a soda. Pack it with lettuce and tomato and a glass of water. good luck on losing the weight.
