Do not have a "diet" diet, where you’re told what to eat. Eat a simple healthy diet, so you can satisfy your cravings and answer your body’s need for some missing nutrients. If I’m building muscle mass, I’ll need a lot of carbs to do the weight training (because it’s anaerobic and fat burning shuts down) and then I’ll get huge cravings for eggs, nuts or a good juicy filet mignon (need for protein for the "repairing stronger" part) otherwise, I would only eat eggs or meat like once a week.
Eating healthy is about avoiding the unhealthy food as much as possible. Once you stay away from fast food (any restaurant food), packaged and boxed food (except for bread, pasta, rice), canned food, prepared and processed food (cereals included but you can have Weetabix), then you’re left with the fruits/veggies, whole wheat food (the brown kind of bread, pasta), brown rice, corn, legumes (beans, peas, lentils, peanuts...), meat, poultry, fish, eggs, dairies, and the good kind of oil (olive, avocado, nuts, fish).
You can have any of the "bad stuff" occasionally so they don’t become forbidden obsessions. Have some French fries, or one slice of pizza (with your favorite veggies) or a cookie, once in a while. Just don’t do it every day and watch out for portion sizes. You can also "push the envelope" and make your own French fries from scratch (never frozen and defrosted) in healthy canola oil, blot, blot, blot, just a dash of salt and you get healthy French fries or you can make homemade pizza with good healthy ingredients.
Canned food is okay if you use it to enhance a recipe. Like canned tomatoes have more antioxidants than fresh ones as they are more concentrated.
I also use canned corns in my recipes. And I like canned asparagus with canned beets (in a salad with vinaigrette). I tried fresh (steamed) asparagus and beets but I prefer the soft texture on the canned ones. As long as your can is not some dreadful soup or prepared meal with tons of sodium.
Also the cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer (using water), a rotisserie (using heat and herbs), a slow cooker (using homemade broth and herbs), a pressure cooker, a grill…
Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
Sure, simply be careful what dressing you put on it, (their Ranch has a lot fats that you'd do higher consuming a hamburger) The grilled chicken sandwhiches have extra fats than 1 / 4 Pounder w/cheese.
Any kinds of fruits and vegetables. Meats like chicken, fish and turkey are good too. Red meats aren't as healthy as white meat. Water is a good drink. No calories, sugar or anything! Plus it makes you feel full! Nuts are good too!
