You gotta have have determination and self control. It's not like I want to eat chicken everday, but it's fairly cheap and lots of protein. I've been eating it twice a day during the week for over a year. The key is to mix up how you prepare it. Use different seasonings. Grill it sometimes, bake it others.

I wouldn't eat tuna more than twice a week. Mercury is some dangerous shit.

That's all you can do. And treat yourself once a week. I would be more focused on eating lean and very low sodium.

Most importantly, and how you stay determined is to do it for yourself. I'm so tired of the girl that sits next to me at work. Almost everyday she says the same thing, "How can you eat the same thing everyday?" "I'm gonna start eating right and work out." "I'm quitting smoking." Blah blah fucking blah.

It's beyond annoying, because she doesn't. She'll say "I'm eating healthy today; chicken cordon bleu." I say, "Hey dumbass, that's not very healthy." She says, "Yea it is, it has chicken in it." Me: "Nevermind, you don't get it."

Sorry, had to vent.

Good luck to you, YOU CAN DO IT!

To me chicken cordon bleu looks pretty healthy from the pics I just googled, I've never had it though.
If by healthy you mean eating stuff that is plain and bland, then no it's not. :P
My mom usually cooks beef stew, chicken fried steak with sides, beans in a crockpot, meatloaf, etc.. She usually cooks so much of it I end up eating leftovers for about a week. -___- My dad just makes salads and puts them in a big bowl in the fridge.. (Carrots, spinach leaves, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes, sliced bell pepper, broccoli, guacamole, etc..)
Tell me if anything I listed is healthy, those are just the main dishes she makes on a regular basis.

I gave up on working out.. lol
I don't need to lose any weight, and get enough exercise from tennis/ultimate frisbee/etc..
I'll just leave working out for when i'm bored.

When I do workout, I usually just do pull-ups (palms facing out), push-ups (Both spread and hands together), "floor wipers", crunches (alternating elbow to knees), sit-ups (up, twist left, down, up, down, up, twist right), dumbbell curls, dips, upright rows /w bar, kickbacks (but I lift up and down, I don't go backwards), Side Lateral Raises, and I "Pour out the milk" (Not sure what the technical term is).. Didn't know the names of a lot of these workouts so I had to google..
I keep 25's on my bar and 10's on my dumbbell bars.. Not really going for the whole body builder look.

Edit: Forgot the 100lb bag that is conveniently located in my room.
I don't have a bench press or anything else though.

It's not really unhealthy per se. But with as much sodium is packed in it, I deem it as junk. Not that I eat low sodium foods 24/7. It's impossible if you eat out anywhere.

Must be a Houston thing, growing up I ate leftovers at least 3 times a week.

A waste of time unless you plan on spending hundreds of dollars to accomplish your goal.

Skim milk, vanilla protein powder, fruit, ice = delicious

Machines are a nice gimmick for abs, but free weights/your body weight will always be number one.

Also, you can do 10000000 crunches, but if you're eating like a fatty, you'll never see anything.

Yuhhh, get one of those magic bullets and then make shakes with it.
My brother usually gets a 5lb can of strawberry whey protein, and a bunch of bananas to make daily shakes.
I don't know the exact recipe but it's just whey, bananas, and ice. (He used to cramp a lot in swim)

Exactly. When I first came in the military, I weighed 150lbs and couldnt gain weight to save my life. I'm not asian by the way. My metabolism was just off the chain. A buff dude at GNC gave me the perfect after workout receipe.

Skim milk, protein powder(whatever flavor you want), 1 banana, 1 scoop of peanut butter, ice. So simple and effective. I gained weight and got stronger. People shouldnt be afraid of getting fat if you want to get bigger. It'll take a hell of a lot longer doing it the lean way. Wanna get big? Eat big. Burn fat later.
