QuoteOriginally posted by: CrashedMintHey,i was feeling weirdly tired and unenergetic often lately and i think it was probably connected to me not eating healthy, and not exercising enough. So, since a few weeks I am substituting proper breakfast for fruit, and actual lunch for salad. I feel bad for the breakfast, because it's really the best meal. I feel less bad for the lunch, because my coworkers have this habit of picking terrible spots so it's a relief to not be part of these misadventures anymore. Dinner is a bit of a problem, when we entertain client because for some strange reason it's almost always steak. Or steak with a side of lobster (not the actual Maine kind, but more like a too large shrimp cut in half, which is slightly unnerving because these things are either bizarrely obese scampi or obviously sick lobsters. in any case you wouldn't want to put that in your mouth.). Or steak with another kind of steak, preferably something half-rotten i.e. "aged". Whatever, can't get a salad here. Also, adjacent to steak dinner are drinks, can't say no here either. I mean sure, i could, but would you buy from the guy that ordered a salad with dressing on the side and diet coke? maybe not. In any case the struggle is that if I'm hungry, I get irritated and can't focus on work 100%, which is bad. But since my work involves sitting down and staring at screens for prolonged periods of time and/or eating/drinking with clients it's difficult to keep up a good diet and even though I am still quiet fit, I'm looking at the guys 5 years older than me and they look... not good. In any case I'm wondering what you guys do to eat healthy? CheersIf you didn't like your job---that'd make you tired? If you're passionate about what you're doing, why being afraid to be "rejected" by a prospective client? If your work is game changing, why not your eating habits? But there's one more thing: IMO, (extreme) diets "cheat". Their external values are obviously positive, but their internal values (at the unconscious layer) may be negative (like the emergence of a sudden compulsion to overcompensate). I eat mixed diet and I'm choosy. That's what let me feel good and consequently healthy.
