need help!!!
im 21 years old 5'11 230 lbs, as you can tell i love to eat. My problem is i cant really make a diet for myself, i have tried to study up on what foods are good for what and just cant seem to make a good diet. I just joined a gym and have signed up for spin classes for my cardio and i also walk all day in my line of work so i have plenty of cardio in my daily life. I will be weight lifting 3 times a week for certian and more if time question is can someone with obviously more knowledge than me set up a diet plan with specific foods at specific times of the day to get me started, or atleast point me in the right direction!! Thankyou all for your help and look forward to learning and getting healthier in my life!!

I also love eating. if you can ,eet with nutritionist (possibly covered by healthcare insurance or student health centers).

Find regular easy to prepare foods that are your staple or base of food. I eat turkey, chicken, yogurt (plain no added sugar but add fresh or frozen fruit), and milk (skim or 1%). All easy to make and can be pretty tasty. This may be the hardest part, but finding healthy foods you also like will help greatly, so search the grocery store high and low.

Also this is tough.... give up booze for at least 6 weeks (it works but real hard). Remember all excess carbs get converted into fat for storage and you need to get to recommended daily amounts. Don't cut out all fat, just keep focused on the "good" fats in fish and nuts.

You can also google p90x nutrition plan. It is pretty easy and straight forward to follow.

Shop the perimeter of the grocery stores. All of the processed crap is in the middle. Keep you proteins high and carbs complex. Keep good fats in the diet. Do yourself a favor and do not eat to little. Going from extreme to extreme is one tendency that can be hard to break. Your body needs the energy. Chicken, fish, lean red meats, lots of green, whole grains. Keep a good schedule for meal planning to burn the maximum possible calories daily.

You may want to look into a specific strategy like carb cycling.

Another serious negative aspect of low-carb diets is that while fat loss does occur, there is also a loss in muscle mass. Sadly, many people who go on low-carbohydrate diets do not even realize that they are losing lean mass; they are simply overjoyed at the fact that they are losing weight. They step on the scale, see the number go down every week, and that is all that matters to them...

if you are having difficulty NOT eating. Then try eating healthier food. take in good calories. Eat several times a day/ small portions. If your lifting weights you shouldn't starve yourself cos if u do your metabolism would just go haywire and you'll add more fat on your body

I like to eat a lot of chicken, with beans and rice to get my protein.

It does depend on how your metabolism runs too. I eat every two hours in very small portions. Perhaps only 3oz of chicken/tilapia/turkey/etc.

Complete carb depletion works well and fast... but I only do it for a couple weeks then start carb cycling. High protein and zero carb hurts my kidneys.
