That's probably fine but regular exercise will help more than sticking with all that. It's better to exercise and eat stuff you enjoy than just force yourself to eat boring rubbish.

Breakfast:

Add more nuts in your breakfast. Stuff like cashews and almonds, etc, whatever you fancy. Healthy fats and oils.
On a similar vein, avocado is also a great healthy fat. There's a reason it's a popular (it's totally overpriced tho)

Smoked Salmon is overrated in terms of health, too salty, Smoked mackerel is superior. But you got the right idea; fish is great. Cottage cheese is a fantastic source of protein if you're trying to cut down on meats (many people eat WAY too much meat in the morning)

Try avoid milk for breakfast. It's tough - I used to eat porridge everyday with mixed fruit, but I realize that milk isn't that great (friggin FDA). You're far better consuming it in probiotic form as a yoghurt, get those healthy bio-guts, something that is lacking in many people's diet and lacking in milk as a whole. Muesli with yoghurt >>>>> Porridge in terms of health. Or you could be like my dad who makes porridge without milk then adds yoghurt, fucking disgusting.

Don't shy away from drinking fruits. Blending shit with the pulp is great, just add a bit of juice from a carton and you can down it. My friend adds almonds in his, which I find gross, but whatever floats your boat.
Recently I skip coffee in the morning and instead add caffeine powder into a blended drink of blackberries, black cherries, grape, acai berry and a dash of apple juice to keep it smooth along with some flax. Wakes me right up and makes me shit rainbows right after.

Lunch/Dinner:

Seems alright, if not a bit boring. Healthy can be fun man, if you're willing to try a few things. You needn't break the bank either. There are nice alternatives to the carbs your eating, such as bulgur wheat, couscous, wild rice, cauliflower rice, barley. Quinoa sucks balls tho, it's one of the first healthy stuff people try and understably turns them right off.

You seem to eat a lot of meat. You only really need two portions of meat a day, unless you're trying to bulk up. Are you currently doing a lot of anaerobic exercise, such as lifting? If so then knock yourself out. Lean meats like turkey is good, but then again so is the aforementioned cottage cheese. Also eggs.
If you're doing a lot of aerobic exercise, and are trying to trim your love handles, then i'd recommend a higher carb and fibre intake and 2.5-3L of water. You'll be shitting like a backed up lawn sprinkler tho.

Vitamins:

Also you really don't need all those supplements if you are eating everything that you are stating, as you will literally piss them out. Go on and take all those vitamins and then smell your piss. Your body cannot hold 1000% of the RDA of whatever is in those, and it will remove it. Vit B and C are a bit redundant when you are taking multivitamins anyway.
In fact i'd just scrap all the vitamins and take vit B solely, vit D if you live in a place with little sunlight. Magnesium is not needed if you are eating bananas, even occasionally. Zinc and Cod Liver oil is something that is lacking in the modern diet and I WOULD recommend taking them. I don't have any opinion on l-arginine, really.

Hope this is informative.

thanks man, i do feel like i need to include less meat, i'm just not very creative in what to replace it with. i'll eat more meat on days when i lift and leave it out on my off days, i guess. cottage cheese and yogurt are great ideas, definitely missing from my list.
i'm effectively trying to increase my testosterone levels and become less lazy/unmotivated, lame as that might sound. i'm sick of waking up and spending all day doing nothing, and i feel the motivation to go outside and just do something starts with my diet/exercise.

two things i forgot to list are green tea and dark chocolate. i think the big things for me to consider is to eat eggs every day and stop masturbating and drinking alcohol for good.

I try to do this shit but I don't know how people keep it up. Every different pack of fruit you get runs out or goes off at a different time and you have yo go to the shop every day almost just to make sure you have enough of each ingredient ready. It's such a pain in the ass.

fyi when you freeze fruit, freeze it out in the open in the freezer on a plate or baking sheet then after it's frozen put it in a bag or container. That way they won't stick together.

But yeah don't let the short shelf life of fruit keep you from keeping fruit stocked, there are tons of different things you can do with them to avoid waste.

Some good stuff but some things I'd probably amend.
>Fruit juice is not as good as whole fruit. Also you only really want 2 fruit a day. The rest of your 5/7/10 should be veg. Fibre is important, fruit juice, even with pulp loses a lot.
>Milk is mediocre, you're right but yogurt can be a trap. Make sure it's not super sugary shit
>actually I want to endorse what you said about carbs fully. Just for emphasis.
>most cod liver oil comes with vitamin D, good shout.
I don't eat a lot of dairy so I do chuck calcium pills in. I know there's a good amount in my diet and that it won't be very efficient but I'm just throwing a little extra in to make sure.

Also what you said about the differing exercise forms is smart though I do both. Eat lots of veg and you will not shit like a backed up sprinkler. Drop some of those carby carbs and replace with greens. The problem is if you overdo it you end up always ready to go. There's 3-5 on the bristol scale waiting in your anus at just about any time of day. Reduced risk of bowel cancer and no piles though which is good. Pushing the wax bullet of misery into your butthole and then sitting on TP is not a fun way to spend an evening.

Good plan but stay away from the vitamin B complex. It's more expensive but buy individual vitamins and only take B1 and B2, and B9 or B12. I don't trust those multivitamins at all. Also, think about adding some vitamin E too and maybe some Ester C (LOOK IT UP).
And some generic advice: stay away from any antihistamines with anticholinergic properties.

Like this guy said, it's important to weigh things out. Are you willing to be that weird smiling person at Amazon Foods just to live longer and have a healthier life? I'm not. Well, I mean I eat less shit than I used to, less processed food, dairy, meat, alcohol, etc., but I still consume all of those things so hyea

>>155394

Yeah benadryl is pretty bad for you, especially if taken even somewhat regularly. Melatonin is nasty shit too. It's prescription-only in the rest of the developed world, since it's a goddamn hormone, but here people take tons of it because Big Pharma Hentai Spice makes sure they're ignorant of the risks, and instead focused on how best to prepare their meal's seasoning.

>help cure my depression, boost my libido, make me more virile, all that good stuff.
eat a whole-foods plant-based diet. just try to eat this way as much as you are capable to do. like, if you love cheese, then replace everything but cow's cheese. anything with cholesterol will go against what you're trying to achieve. all plants have zero cholesterol. eat more fruit. I really think changing my diet to mostly fruit helped tremendously to cure my depression by restoring my feeling of youthful energy. I'm vegan and the supplements I take are: vitamin b12, iron, vitamin d, a multivitamin, and use iodized salt. I'd say it's a guarantee way to turn your life around. check out some meal plans for ideas:

i don't like suggestions like this cause engineering a diet plan that maximizes everything about you depends entirely on your genetic makeup. most everyone is so far removed culturally and mixed genetically from whatever the fuck diet humans are "supposed" to eat that it's too arcane to really design around. fruit-basis might work for you but for me that much sugar would really wear me down. a more extreme example would be like a First Nation person who's survived for generations on seal meat, you can't just switch them to a vegan diet and expect them to have the same improvements.

any strict diet plan is worth a try I guess, since you can always just quit. and it's more tangible advice than just "listen to your body." but people really should just eat as big a myriad of foods as they can get their hands on, and meal plan for the stuff that makes you feel your best. and also consider how cooking makes you feel in your mind, not just your gut. pot roast isn't as good for me as a pan-seared trout with microgreens and quinoa but cooking it is more relaxing, and feels indulgent and rewarding, and those are things that should count when you consider how food makes you feel. don't eat a whole bag of cheetos just cause it's "rewarding", but being super meticulous about every bit of food I ate harmed me more with stress than it helped me with nutrition. nothing has to be "X based" or geared toward eliminating X unless you have a food allergy.

depression lifted for me around the time i started eating different. dropped all meat but fish. no dairy. no added sugar. i did drop wheat from the diet, too, and it solved a lifetime of irregular bowel movements and discomfort. gluten-free-ness gets a lot of eye rolling, but its your life, so experiment and find what digests well and what doesn't.

rice and oatmeal are my main fillers, with fruit, veggies and a variety of seasonings. its very plain to some people. that might be the trick - plain food, plain mind. an uncomplicated diet with uncomplicated thoughts.

also, try meditation, regular exercise (just walk around a lot), and perhaps a style of martial arts or yoga.

i believe in you, good job making changes
