    Advice on how to make my current meal plan more healthy?

    May 19, 2017, 3:05 pm

    Hey guys, I've just made a meal plan on the site, but can't seem to get everything into a A rating. I would like some advice/feedback on how I can improve what I have. My goal is to keep it as basic as possible as I don't know too much about nutrition, but also relatively cheap as money is tight at the moment. 
    My macros are:

    220g protein
    350g carbs
    90g fats
    3090 calories.

    This is what I have so far:


    Any advice would be most appreciated, thanks!

    No slam on Scott and the MS.com website as he did not create the report card app but unfortunately apps like the one calculating the report card are bogus - especially the Heart Health section - as these are all based on the fallacy that is the Lipid Hypothesis from 1958. You are getting dinged because the app believes 78g of total fat is too high which is total nonsense. If anything, the carbs seem too high and should be lowered. Cholesterol and fats do no cause heart disease and never have. Sugar and processed foods high in carbs with man-made sugars and fats are the primary culprits. Americans are too over-carbed in their diets. The Lipid Hypothesis is used to "justify" the use of poisonous statin drugs to lower cholesterol and LDL which is a 30 Billion/year industry. This massive attack on fat and cholesterol has lead to the myriad of chronic diseases affecting people today as fat and cholesterol are critical for your hormones, your entire nervous system and brain, absorption of all the fat soluble vitamins (D, E, A), the lining of your lungs and intestines, and the function of all critical systems in the body. There are essential fats and proteins only but no essential carbs and sugar.

     

    The easiest way to eat a nutritious and wholesome meal plan is to stick to the basics:

     

    1) Eat only food you cook yourself. Avoid all packaged and processed foods.

    2) Make sure to eat enough healthy natural fats from - whole eggs (not egg whites), whole fat diary (not low fat/non-fat), oily fish (salmon, tuna, sardines), nuts, natural oils (coconut and olive oil).

    3) Eat your fruit do not drink it. Fruit juice is no better than a can of full sugar Coke. Eat a variety of whole fruits

    4) Stay away from diet anything - artificial sweetners cause more weight gain due to short circuiting your brains calorie feedback mechanisms

    5) Stay away from all processed (bacon, salami, sausages) and deli meats - they are full of sugars and cancer causing nitrates

    6) Avoid all fake oils - corn, soy, safflower, canola, sunflower. They are unhealthy and loaded with too much inflammation causing Omega 6 fatty acids.

    7) Eat butter never margarine

    8) Get your protein from chicken, fish, whole eggs (not egg whites), grass-fed (not grain fed) beef, nuts, and whole fat dairy

    9) Eat only natural, unprocessed, non-white grains - brown rice, sweet potatoes, whole rolled oats, whole wheat/durum pasta, and quinoa. Avoid all white carbs and breads.

    10) Make sure to eat natural (organic if possible) vegetables that are fresh not frozen. Eat a wide variety and stay away from any packaged vegetables

     

    This is basically eating the way we did before the industrialization of food in the 1950's. Modern processed food is devoid of nutrients, full of shit like fake sugars and fats, and loaded with artificial chemicals and preservatives. Even when eating wholesome food, you need to stay aware of your macro and calorie counts because excess calories regardless of how wholesome will lead to weight and body fat gain.

    Hey dude, thanks for your response.
    So in your opinion, would you try and get all the vitamins and minerals up to an A rating, along with omega 3 & 6? or does what I already have look like a healthy meal plan? My only worry is that I'm not getting enough vitamins and minerals to be healthy, I'm fairly confident that I'll gain weight using this plan.

     

    Any more advice would be very helpful, thanks!
