I'm a guy btw..and yea i can eggs every day for the rest of my life. Although i would like to eat them only for breakfast, i'm on a budget and need protein. Can't eat beef and chicken is too bland
Chicken is bland if you bolt it down. Really nicely cooked chicken - I roast it and use coconut oil for basting then fry up the leftovers in more coconut oil to keep it moist - is a lovely flavour and certainly no more bland than cod. Don't forget the skin, which is the tastiest part.
The longer you eat unprocessed foods the more you'll find your sense of taste and smell returning/improving. I started cooking without salt a long time ago and don't add any to my food either. I enjoy the full flavours of everything I eat and carrots - which I used to think bland - are now incredibly sweet. Every mouthful is there to be savoured!
I can't eat chicken skin because of omega 6 and acne. When i started eating primal, i ate a lot of chicken thighs for dinner and broke out like crazy. I think my body is really sensitive to omega3:6 ratio imbalance.
There's nothing wrong with low calories in the short term, especially if you're feeling fine.
In the long term, I'd worry about getting in enough food to get in all your vitamins, minerals, and micronutrients (though much less so than SAD low-calorie!). I'd also worry about the risk of stressing your adrenals. How much other stress do you have going on in your life? If your life is otherwise low-stress, your body can handle it better.
Basically, if you start to feel awful, sleep terribly, or perform terribly, re-adjust your approach.
