Hey guys!

I want to change my diet, to live more healthy. I need some tips on what to eat for breakfast and lunch. I am not going to replace dinner as I live at a hostfamily, and I find that rude, that they cook for me, and I just reject it.

At the moment I eat;

Breakfast.

1 sandwich with Peanut butter and banana on wholemeal bread, and sometimes i have a protein shake after, as i dont getenough protein duringthe day.

Lunch is normallya baguettewith either chicken, mayo and lettuce, or Tuna,mayo and sweetcorn.

Dinner is whatever my host family cooks for me..

Drinking wise, I dont drink alcohol, and I drink plenty of water duringthe day. Isometimes drink ginger beer, andchai tea.

What should I add and stop eating?

Please help!

because of the way vegataru=ians are portrayed in the media/

This goes great with what I've been learning at school. I'm a student at UC Davis. I'm no expert but I'll try to help you. Firstly, about the protein shake for breakfast, you really should only drink that right after a work out because the Amino acids will be delivered through the increased blood flow by the exercise. Your body will turn extra protein to carbs and then stored that as fat, the extra nitrogen from the amino acids will beexcreted through urine. The daily value for protein is 50 grams if you didn't know. Instead of the protein shake, just drink some milk.

Your diet doesn't actually look that bad, just make sure you are eating lots of fiber (from veggies, fruits, salad) about 25 grams of fiber a day is good. Minimize how much fat (fast food, butter, mayo etc) you eat.

Homemade dinners are usually healthy unless your eating lots of fried stuff with high fat.

In general: add milk (1% or skim) for breakfast. If you want more protein, milk and meat should be your main source through out the day. Drink protein shakes directly after your exercise workout. You could also eat some boiled eggs. Don't worry about the cholestrol from eggs, we learned that cholestrol FROM EGGS is not linked to heart disease. Eggs have tons of good nutrients in them.

Lunch: add more fruits and veggies. The sandwhich is fine, just dont overload it with mayo. Also, whole grain bread is good.

You also should be exercising. Go out and play some basketball, soccer, or something fun with your friends. Exercise makes you feel better, and its a good way to socialize. "without exercise, humans will slowly sicken and die."

completely untrue

the guy that had the world record for drinking the most raw eggs..had a heart attack emediethly after

meats should not be a main part of the diet in fact anyone that knows anything about healthy eating recomends severely limmiting meat intake if not cutting it oit entirely

the cholesterol from eggs can be deadly

saying not to worry about it is very bad advice becaue it is bjust as bad as any cholesterol

the protein shake info was spot on though
