There's not a cooking board on here but this falls under the category of "health."
So here is my situation. I'm currently battling depression and living with ADD. I'm getting therapy and medication to help me through it. That's not the point as to why I'm here though. I'm aware that an unhealthy diet can be a substantial contributor to depression and a healthy diet can ease ADD symptoms. My goal is to only eat food that I make myself. I'm 24 years old and live by myself with very limited kitchen space. I'm working with my budget and slowly building up my cooking utilities. I am no stranger to Google and I'm going to continue searching for myself, but it doesn't hurt to ask for help.

I'm looking for a resource or guide that can help a 24 year old man eat and cook healthy. Starting out simple enough, I'm sticking to whole grains only, I always keep a dozen eggs in my refrigerator, I buy unsalted butter and don't use margarine or any other synthetic butter substitute, I'm sticking with lean red meat at the moment as I get comfortable with cooking more foods, and only 100% juice, whole milk (should probably switch to 2%), and water (occasionally Snapple) fill my fridge for drinks, and I seldom buy junk like Doritos as I prefer to snack on things like fruits and raw veggies. I feel like this is a decent start, but I do want a guide that can actually help me stay on track and also give me ideas on switching things up.

TL:DR I'm a young man trying to eat healthy and cook for myself. got any advice?

Here's Mavis because I love this movie.

Hello, I have a similar situation (prone to depressive episodes, young, eating healthy). Luckily I'm pretty handy in the kitchen.
Eating junk food feels nice at the time, but afterwards I feel terrible (either some kind of guilt, or my body reacts negatively to huge amounts of sugar or fat).

I support switching to less-fat milks, definitely. I actually went non-fat, and now any milk with a little fat tastes weird. Your mileage may vary.

I don't use butter very often (unless I'm attempting baking something). I use olive or sunflower oil for cooking. People say you shouldn't use olive oil for cooking, as it has a low smoke point (a lower temperature at which it gives food the "burnt" taste). There are two kinds as you know - extra-virgin and refined. With extra-virgin, it's best to use it raw, with vegetables.
You can use refined for cooking (refined has a higher smoke point, closer to sunflower oil).
If you like, you can add some spices, garlic, dried peppers, and the like to a small bottle of extra-virgin olive oil and wait for a few days, it'll make a good dip for bread, and a good garnish for salad.

I don't know whether or not you get fresh fruit and vegetables at a reasonable price in your country to make them your main food source, but these are the staples of my diet.

Eggs are very nutritious, but can be high in cholesterol. Be sure not to exceed two eggs a day. And also try to boil them instead of frying.

My mistake was that I didn't like eating meat so much, after a few months, I got B12 deficiency.

Strength vs stamina training Anonymous 15/05/19(Tue)04:36 No. 18222 [Reply]

File 143200299050.png - (2.24MB , 1052x1420 , useII.png )

So, I've been into calisthenics for some years now, and have achieved a fair amount of muscle mass and can perform some complex exercises like one arm push-ups and hanging leg raises and stuff like that. I've been mostly following a 6x6 program, in an attempt to get strength above all else.
Recently, I started taking martial art lessons, Pa-Kua for more information. In there we do a lot of calls, but mostly focused into stamina. Countless repetitions of push ups and sit ups and body-weight squats, and a little running too. This is almost as difficult for me as for any of my untrained partners, and many times I can't even complete the full set before failing.
So here's my worry: am I going to lose my long achieved strength and hypertrophy if I continue following this new routine? And if so, how can I stop that from happening?
Thanks in advance guys.

You'll probably lose some of the hypertrophy if you stop the strength training, but you'll still be toned; just not "ripped".
You can extend your workout sessions to minimize the loss, but it will take up quite a bit of time and energy.

It has to do with your personal buildup of muscles as well. If you have a propensity for strength (sounds like it), you won't be as successful in stamina/endurance. (for me it's the opposite, I can run for hours, but don't ask me to sprint for my life) It has to do with fast and slow twitch muscle fibres (early tiring and stronger versus long winded and weaker).

See image for an extreme example.

Sup guys.
So, a friend of mine is starting this freeletics routine and inviting me to join him.
I've been into calisthenics for years now actually and know a bit about them, following mostly Convict Conditioning and 666. I don't know anything about this new site and what does it have to offer, but I'm generally speaking the kind of guy that avoids all what's new (like this current crossfit madness and shit on the like) and I wan't to know a bit of your thoughts and experiences about this method if you have any to share before I jump into it.

What sort of shoes to buy? Anonymous 15/02/05(Thu)14:34 No. 17367 [Reply]

Sup /fit/
I'm a lazy faggot but finally decided to join a gym, where I'm trying to use a range of machines blah blah. I'm also walking a bit, sometimes jogging, and filling in on the odd game of futsal with some friends. So far I've been wearing my Vans for all of this, and it sucks even harder than I do. I only really want to buy one pair of shoes to cover all my bases, are cross trainers the way to go? Thanks!

PS, I won't be doing any big lifting as that's not a look I'm into, but some weights are involved.

if its mostly cardio some normal cross trainers will cover you. if you start lifting you will need something flat and stable.

Feiyue's are excellent shoes and cheap as dirt.
Parkour guys have been wearing them for years, chinese kids even longer than that. My personal favorite.

Chuck taylors are supposed to be the best show for powerlifting, and not bad elsewhere.

'Barefoot' type shoes like vivo's or innov8's are super comfortable,but I haven't yet found any that I can really run around in.

hey people,
so I've never posted on here but I thought maybe you guys would have an idea of what I"m looking for. I haven't been able to find any reliable info about the amount of calories burned at my job. Some say 200 an hour, some say 400 for six hours.
I work at a grocery store as a clerk, so I lift boxes (~10 - 50lbs) of product onto carts, push these carts, and then bring them to shelves and stock.

I generally work 8 hour shifts - breaks = ~7 hours of work generally.

Any ideas would be helpful, thanks!

usually people at office jobs get FAT. If they're not getting fat, they're getting heavy. You know how much donuts & coffee the typical office goes through? CRAPLOADS

I'd say something like fifty calories over your baseline metabolism. Unless you break a sweat light work doesn't add up

Do consciously and/or intentionally taxonomically analyse things in your everyday life? I want to find out if this is normal and healthy behaviour. Please state if you are a scientist or have OCD. I have both so it might be due to one or both of those sources of deviance.

I analyze and categorize most of my and others actions and behaviors, and mostly any other thing I care for. It's just my way to relate with the world.
It's normal and healthy as far as you're comfortable with it and you're somehow socially functional.
Because you asked, I'll state that I'm an advanced medicine student, but I'm pretty unsure of my own mental health (or the very existence of such thing). I think you're healthy if you feel so and none tells you otherwise. I don't think psychiatrists would necessarily disagree with that, and if they do, who cares for those idiots.
The question is, why do you think your behavior could not be normal or healthy, and why would you care about it.

Rugby ain't that violent IMO, and yeah, Calcio Storico is pretty rough. The strange rules of the game are more interesting that it's violence though.
