    My first post here, but I've been "lurking" around for a while, reading up on a lot of stuff.

    Based on what I've read, I feel water should hold the number one position on GH's list. :)

    So, one vote for water.

    Agreed. Pork loin is pretty low in fat. Pork in general is, due to the pigs are raised nowadays (all cooped up eating grains and such, instead of roaming around and eating whatever they can get a hold of). In fact, loin is low enough in fats that it's really not very good unless you brine it first, to keep it juicy.

    Here are some stats from CalorieKing:

    4 oz pork loin.

    KCal = 133
    Fat = 2.6 g
    Carb = 0
    Pro = 25.5 g

    Compare to chicken breast

    4 oz chick breast

    Kcal = 125
    Fat = 1.4 g
    Carb = 0
    Protein = 26.2


    As you can see, pork loin is a very viable alternative to chicken breast for whenever you get tired of chicken. It's not better, but it's negligibly worse, IMO.

    Here's a good idea...switch from breakfast cereal to natural rolled unsweetened oats in the morning. Carb levels are about the same but you're cutting out a whole lot of extra sugar you dont need.

    Rolled oats are gross. Once you go steel cut, you never go back! The secret is to prepare a big batch and store it, cuz it takes about 35 minutes to fix.

    1 cup oats + 4 cups water + 2 tsp cinnamon + 1 tsp ginger + 1 cup blueberries = DELICIOUS. More fiber than rolled oats, too :tu:

    I'm new here, thought I'd add a few to start out, these worked for me when I was losing weight.
    Turkey bacon
    Turkey sausage
    Chick peas (I love those little babies):eat: :eat: :eat:
    Hot peppers (They are supposed to help in some way, I lile the Pepproncinis, but can't hack the Jalapenos unless they're in a recipe like chili).
    Dill pickles
    Brussels sprouts

    why is celery so low? when you eat celery, you burn more calories consuming the celery than taking in

    touche on the hot sauce - raises your metabolic rate (as well as makes otherwise bland food palatable!).

    what about kale? I'm surprised that I don't find that around here, it's supposedly one of most nutritious vegetables out there.

    I'd suggest tofu as well - low fat and cals, and bean-level protein. Good if supplemented with other protein sources.

    eggs/egg whites
    chicken breast
    vegetables - Fibrous non starchy kinds
    cottage cheese
    almonds
    oats
    brown rice
    tuna (in water)
    turkey
    brocolli
    lean beef
    flax seed oil
    grapefruit
    yams/sweet potatoes
    salmon
    fish oil (including caps)
    protein powder
    olive oil
    splenda
    berries
    caffeine (coffee and tea)
    Ezekiel Bread or full multi-grain bread
    water

    yogurt - plain fat free
    asparagus
    avocado
    mushrooms
    cucumbers
    pineapple
    lean pork
    green tea
    edamame beans
    fat free Greek yogurt

    I modified this list to personal preference with what I believe works best in general. These are foods you should be eating all the time for any type of diet and not just for fat loss.

    They are in no particular order but these should be the staple foods for any diet (bulking, cutting, maintenance, etc) you are trying to do.

    The biggest help I've had is with Green tea, spicy food, and strangely enough ice cold water. The colder the better as it speeds up the body's metabolism as it warms the water.

    Whole Foods.

    Date Rolls - you eat 4 of them (I know, should weigh them), and it's 110 calories, and they're FILLING. Helps that they taste like candy too. ;) PLU 5450

    Hey Guys, new here. Interesting post GW. A great staple list for a solid eating plan. Bumps for oats, tuna, cottage cheese & turkey. Also, be cool to see Low-fat unsweetened yoghurt on the list too.

    Regards, James.
