So as I think more about how to shed my extra pounds, it's obvious that how I got here is by a total disregard for a healthy diet. I'm sure a lot of us clyde's/athenas are in the same situation. Part of the problem turning the ship now is that I've NEVER been in the habit of eating healthy. I do often prefer unhealthy foods, but the major issue is convenience. As a single guy, I dislike cooking just for myself (love to cook when there are others to enjoy it though). It's so much easier to swing through McD's or Taco Bell rather than preparing and brown bagging a lunch. I also have the issue of desiring fresh foods, but they expire and go bad before I can eat them usually, which really bothers me. I'm so used to fast food and take-out. At this point, probably 80% of my meals come from restaurants in some form or other. I need to change this but not go completely tofu!
So maybe this thread could be a collection of insight that those of us who are finding better ways. I'm looking for cheap/quick ideas for home prepared meals that don't involve too many ingredients, taste good, are reasonably good for you, and won't leave me dreaming of buffalo wings.
