Aye yall, time for another health and fitness thread. Come talk about your current routines, foods your eating.....or fuk whatever. --------------------- I'll get the ball rolling. At the start of the year I decided to try the pescatarian diet, or adhere to it as best I can. On top of this I wanted to cut out dairy almost entirely. I had put on 4kg over the 2 weeks of Christmas/New Years holidays and generally feeling like arse. I've been wanting to adjust my food intake for months, but didn't give myself the headspace to make life changes. So, here's what I've discovered since making the switch. 1. I feel lighter, not eating meats has left me feeling quite comfortable after meals and I don't feel as tired. 2. Pricing. Instead of meat I add lentils, chickpeas, kidney beans and anything of the like. A can of beans runs about 75c. A steak can get up to 10x that. My wallet am happy. 3. Food is more enjoyable. Anecdotally, my taste buds are much happier, the flavour from vegetables is much more noticeable and I seem happier having half a dozen veggies on my plate than a dumb steak. 4. No dairy is amazing. Too much dairy was making me stink, literally. After a toasted cheese sambo (GOAT comfy food) I'd feel greasy and my sweat would smell a bit. Cutting dairy out in virtually all forms leaves me feeling less clogged up. 5. Almond milk owns and makes coffee so much tastier. Additionally I thought it would be hard to source alternative foods, particularly for things like icecream or what to put in my coffee. Thankfully I've found some things like Be Good icecream which is based on soy and cane sugar. It's nowhere near as satisfying as god tier ice cream, but it is still delicious. Sorbet still rules. TL;DR pescatarian diet is enjoyable. The best thing, combined with my training (which now includes 2 fasting training sessions a week) I've been able to drop about 4-5kg in 6 weeks. Something I'd never thought I would do.
