First of all, congratulations on taking the first step towards better health! This is a difficult decision and it is no small feat what you are trying to accomplish, so seriously great job! Let’s dive into a few things I see here though that might help you out.

  1. Do you have any experience in the kitchen? If not, I’d recommend finding some easy online recipes that utilize fresh foods to cook with. A simple google search of “quick easy fresh recipes” will give you more than enough options. IMPORTANT Do not get overwhelmed, do not try to do too much. If you have minimum experience in the kitchen, that’s okay! Start easy and work your way up. Some people watch Food Network (I’m a sucker for Chopped!) and think there is no way I can cook, but it’s truly not hard to cook clean, whole foods!

  2. Cooking is important. Based on what you’ve listed for food for the day, you must be extremely hungry. While it’s important to cut back on the not so good foods you listed, it’s also important to make sure the body is getting proper nutrition. For instance, it looks like you’re increasing your activity by walking more, but your protein intake looks to be non-existent. This is not going to help your aches and pains as your body needs the protein, and in some cases, carbs, to help rebuild muscle/tissues.

  3. So let’s talk protein, carbohydrates, and fats for a second, which are called macronutrients. I am sure you’ve seen all sorts of advice with these online. Don’t eat too much. Make sure you get enough. ETC ETC ETC If we use the keep it simple method, this is the best advice I can give you: eat clean, whole foods. Bam. That’s seriously it. Now when you reach your health and fitness goals and then you want to zoom in and really get technical, you can start to break down whether you need to count macronutrients or calories or what and when you should eat.

  4. I know this sounds counter intuitive because of the diet culture we live in, but seriously, listen to your body. Eat when you’re hungry. Eat slow enough that your body can recognize when it’s had enough nutrition. Hormones will be released while you’re eating to tell your brain, hey! I’m full!!! Then stop eating. If you’re following step 3 of clean, whole foods, you can’t eat too much anyway. Yes. I’m serious. Your body will thank you for the fresh food and it will let you know when you’ve had enough.

  5. What is the difference between listening to my body and cravings? Cravings are more than likely psychological. So keep in mind, when I say, listen to your body, that doesn’t mean listen to your cravings. I hope that isn’t too confusing. Cravings can occur due to habits (see #6), due to stress (which you will at some point, if not already, be going through), due to numerous other physiological conditions too. When I heard someone say, listen to your body, I used to think to myself, what the hell does that even mean? It sounded like a cop out. But we don’t pay attention to that so much these days. We live in a world of eating out constantly, eating what we want, and not considering repercussions. We don’t listen to our bodies because we’re too consumed with other things. Food is an after thought. Congrats my friend, your eyes are beginning to open to the idea that food is important.

  6. Find a way to balance cravings. As an example, one of my toughest battles is after lunch and dinner, I ALWAYS want sweets, because for the longest time, I always ate something sweet after lunch and dinner. I love ice cream, I love chocolate, I love sweets! So, to hit that sweet tooth, I will eat strawberries, bananas, or apples. You can also google lots of recipes for ‘healthy’ desserts. That doesn’t mean it has to be absent of sugar or taste, but it can be controlled and if it’s cooked at home, it will be healthier than something store bought without question.

  7. What is clean, whole foods? Another easy tip: When you go to the grocery store, avoid the center of the building. That’s where all the processed foods are. Yes, that even means your campbells soups. BUT, don’t stop reading yet!! There’s better news!! You can make fresh, AMAZING soups easily! As an example, I cook a couple different meals on Sundays for the beginning of the week and pack those up in Tupperware. So that morning of work, all I do is grab the Tupperware, throw it in the lunch bag with a few healthy snacks, and I’m ready to go. Clean foods are mostly in your produce section, if they are not in produce, they do not have ingredients in them you can’t pronounce. When I go grocery shopping now, about 80% of my cart is produce. I pick up a variety of proteins, fish, chicken, pork, and beef for example. Variety in foods is important to get all the necessary nutrients!

  8. Organic, not organic, pastured, cage free, ect ect ect…. Look, you can delve into the world as food as much as you like. The further you go, the more you realize Americans have their eyes covered to the realities of the food we consume. For almost all Americans, the majority of foods we eat is shit. It is NOT healthy. Even foods that LOOK healthy aren’t always. This is where label reading comes into play. This seems complicated and sometimes, it is. You’re just getting started. At this point, focus on trying to eat cleaner foods. Try to get away from the processed stuff. The store bought soups have so many extras in them, including sodium and preservatives, which is something you will want to cut back on too. However, it’s not worth getting stressed about all of it. Do organic if you can afford it. If you can’t buy all organic, things you eat often, get organic. Also, foods that don’t have a peeling on them are more susceptible to pesticides than foods that do, i.e., strawberries absorb everything, get organic, however, oranges, we don’t typically eat the peeling, so if you had to choose, you can forgo the organic there. If you eat a lot of chicken, try to get the higher quality. But if you’re check book can’t stretch that far, don’t panic, it’s not the end of the world. Your body will thank you for buying anything that is freshly cook as opposed to something like Tysons Chicken Nuggets that are highly processed.

  9. Lastly, to save money on clean, whole foods, look for local farmer’s markets, CSA’s (, or talk to a local butcher/farm for buying whole animals, i.e., a whole chicken costs $15-25, and you can typically visit the farm to see where it is raised, it’s conditions, and it’s quality.

    Most important, keep it simple! It can be easy to get overwhelmed, but take small, measured steps that will lead to little successes. Over time, this will build up to huge successes. Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Adopt the pace of nature; her secret is patience”. Remember too, you’ll have setbacks. Everyone does. Don’t get discouraged. You’re on the journey of a lifetime. You’re trying to fundamentally change your life. This is no small feat. It took you a long time to get to the point you’re at now, it’s not going to be fixed overnight. Patience and humility are great allies in this journey! And if you start having doubts, look back at all the little victories (a journal works great for this...write down successes each day to help on those tough days!). Believe you can do this and you can. Motivation is born from a decision. You’ve made the decision. You’ve got this!!

    Check out the book It Starts With Food . I love this book. It is a great intro to food and its effects on the body. Also, a great resource for minimizing sugar is: This Aussie can give you some fantastic information on what sugar does to the body and how to minimize or quit sugar altogether.

    Feel free to PM me if you have any questions. Good luck!!!

Hey Fuzzy. One of the biggest suggestions I have for you is figuring out specifically what is going on inside of you that seems to be causing these mood changes.

This book is pretty, and chock full of the biology that comes into play when eating and dieting. Your mood is getting shitty and irritable because you're getting "intense food cravings for food you can't have," you say? You're going through withdrawal symptoms. Processed food, fried fatty foods, artificial sugars: these all effectively hijack your brain's neurochemistry and make it run wild.

Artificial sugars activate the same neural reward centers that cocaine activates. Eating these foods feels good, and makes us feel good, and does so because, not so very long ago, fats and sugars and salts were all scarce, and so our brain rewarded our bodies with feel good juju so as to motivate us to get more. Pack in the calories during times of feast and plenty so as to survive times of famine. But times have changed, and if you're looking for diet advice, now we're fresh out of famine.

As far as waiting till you're angry to go to the gym? Fuck that noise. Build it into your routine so as to mitigate feeling angry in the first place. Endorphins are a hell of a drug, and are natural pick me ups.

As far as cravings go? Eat more fruits. Salt your meats till you stop craving the shit you crave but can't eat. Lots and lots of water. Then more water, with a willpower chaser. As tough as this is, living a life full of self hate and pity is much, much tougher.

You're asking for help, and that's an awesome step. Know you're not alone, and you're doing your best to progress. Be kind to yourself; don't beat yourself up if you fall off the wagon, but be mindful of it, pick yourself up, and get yourself back on said wagon. Don't give up. Your life is worth the effort.

I love bringing soups for lunch. I have a thermos container that I love (like this one), so I just heat up the soup while I eat my breakfast and then pack it to go.

For me the soup has to be hearty in order to fill me up for the rest of the day, so potato leek, corn chowder, or lentil soup tend to be my go to recipes.

This can be a really easy thing to prepare before work if you make a big batch of soup over the weekend. Once or twice a month I will make 2 or 3 soups at a time and freeze them in small portions (the size that fits my thermos) and then I have options to choose from instead of eating the same soup every day of the week.

Pasta salad is also a filling lunch - I love pesto pasta salad, with just some spiral pasta, cherry tomatoes, and pesto.

You’re welcome! I hope you can find relief! I used to live with chronic acid reflux, taking stomach meds every day, burping up bile all the time, it was horrible. Back then, I had no idea about food and it’s effects on the body and ironically, aside from dr’s telling me to not eat spicy food and tomatoes, I received no relief. Finding relief through proper diet (the one that’s right for you), is an amazing feeling!

You might consider this book which helps those with autoimmune issues and food sensitivities. Hang in there!

Low carb diets are the best way to go imo, and can be cheap too. The one I've followed is LCHF (Low Carb High Fat) which keeps those regular "hunger pangs" away from eating carbs.
Everyone needs to find out what works best for them though.

Re being "too hot to cook," have you thought of getting an electric pressure cooker?. . . even a cheap one (I have the "Instant Pot" brand--best selling-- and Instant Pot has various models at different price points, and even cheaper when on sale, etc).
They can be used on hot days and no heat escapes (and also no food odors), and are also good for cooking those cheap high-collagen meats which can then be frozen in portion sizes, etc.
Here's the cheapest one I'm seeing right now at amazon, though are sometimes even cheaper (on Black Friday, Prime Day, etc)...this one doesn't ferment yogurt though if you were interested in that:

You're welcome. Along with eating the obvious fiber (fruits/veggies) you can order this:

I have a buddy who went from 220lbs to 160lbs and it had a lot to do with that product.

Maybe get an induction countertop and use it. Read up on what type of cookware is compatible with it beforehand.
