    Healthy Diet Options- Resistance Training (some allergies)

    Shop Now
    Hey guys,

    Up until now I have 60/30/20 carb/protein/fat diet, at ~300 calories surplus to support growth. I have had fantastic results up using this ratio. As I live at college, I'm on a very low budget for food during the week. Up until a few days ago, I saw rolled oats as a fantastic meal substitute, given it's cost, macro ratio, fiber, etc. After finding this website I see that's not a viable option.

    I eat to live, and don't care to much for flavor, or having to eat copious amounts of the same food. More so, i prefer eating one type of meal several times a day
    I was hoping that someone could recommend a cheap, easy to prepare, diet that I could start on. I've visited numerous health food stores asking for help regarding lectin free diets, but to no avail.

    Allergies-
    Vitamin C
    Vitamin K
    Legumes
    Nuts/Beans/Lentils

    i'd really appreciate some insight
    cheers

    If you don't experience any digestive problems from oats, I don't see why you would avoid them. White rice and potatoes are great options for carbs as well.

    Chicken breast, ground turkey/beef, tuna, eggs, milk are all great protein options.

    The Lowdown On Lectins | Mark's Daily Apple

    and

    Lectins

    state that lectins are toxic for the body. oats = high in lectins.

    if you google lectin toxicity, you'll find many people reccomend against eating grains which contain them. oats have high level of lectins

    care to please explain why eggs
    do they contain a chemical which deactivates lectins?

    If you don't have a negative reaction to oats, eat them. Stop overthinking everything. You don't have to eat eggs with your oats, you can if you want to.

    Just keep it simple. If you want to eat oats and they don't make you feel like crap then eat them.

    Eggs are inexpensive, nourishing, and satiating. Eating eggs with your oats will give you an inexpensive meal that is higher in protein than oats alone.
