    I suppose i`d better chuck in a bit of background info.
    I`m 40yrs old & on a comeback to bjj.
    In the past i`ve competed in lightweight strongman, boxing & bjj.
    At the moment i`m weighing in around 85k down from an average weight of 110k.
    1 of the areas that i`ve always lacked in is diet.I dont like the taste of many of the
    foods that you need for your average diet.
    Hopefuly the people on this board will help me gain a better understanding
    of what i need to be eating to get me in the shape i want to get in to ?

    In a nutshell....

    (In fact, it should be the backbone of your diet. )
    - Meat (preferably grass-fed)
    - Poultry (preferably free-range)
    - Fish (preferably wild-caught)
    - Eggs (preferably cage-free)
    - Non-starchy and/or green vegetables (preferably organic)
    - Avocado
    - Butter (preferably from grass-fed cows)
    - Lard
    - Ghee
    - Coconut oil
    - Coconut milk
    - Olive oil (but not for cooking)
    - A berry (up to a handful)

    (Throw it away, unless it's a cleaning or stationery product, in which case use it for its appropriate purpose).
    - A legume (bean, pea, peanut)
    - A grain (wheat, corn, rice) or made of a grain (cereal, oatmeal, bread, cake, tortilla, pasta)
    - A processed food product
    - A "low-fat" manufactured food product
    - A "low-carb" manufactured food product
    - A "diet" manufactured food product
    - Anything with an ingredient that ends in "ose" (sucrose, glucose, fructose) or that contains sugar, agave nectar, honey, or maple syrup
    - Anything from the center aisles of the grocery store...

    - Dairy products (milk, yogurt, cream, sour cream, half & half) – whole milk (not low-fat)
    - Nuts (peanuts are not nuts)
    - A seed
    - A fruit other than a berry
    - A starchy or sugary vegetable (carrot, beet, winter squash)
    - A tuber (potato, sweet potato, yam)
    - A nightshade (tomato, bell pepper)
    - Coffee

    - You are trying to lose weight (for dairy, nuts, fruits, starchy vegetables, and tubers)
    - You are lactose intolerant (for dairy)
    - You are significantly inactive/sedentary
    - You are insulin resistant (for dairy, nuts, fruits, starchy vegetables, tubers, and coffee)
    - You want to go 100% evolutionary diet and avoid anything we aren't sure paleo man ate

    Been trying to read as many journals as poss & am coming to the
    conclusion that there is no real `right` way to eat.
    As off next wk i`ll be trying to eat meat & veg for all meals except
    breki which i`ll be sticking to my breki shake.
    Dont know if what i`m doing now is helping or hindering me ?
    I`ll get it right in the end i hope ?
