I'm the type of person who just doesn't notice when they're hungry and I don't really like to cook all that much. Normally I eat the same stuff every single day but if there is ever a hiccup in this routine then I start to lose control of my diet. I've reached a healthy weight after several years of work, and now I've reached the point where I really need to keep my diet in check or I'm not going to gain any muscle, or I might start losing weight again.

Any easy recipes with little clean up would be nice, thank you. Normally I eat bananas, oranges, almonds, bread? I guess? I'm like 220 pounds and 6'4''. I dunnoh man I think I'm losing control of my life too maybe throw in some life advice with your recipes, thanks again

220 and 6'4 is a good weight. Im 220 6;3". You're fine dude. You probably have a bit of a gut? Just drink less beer and eat less bread. Or don't. You're not overweight.

That's a fairly healthy weight but just eat more protein, maybe less carbs and fat and you'll be good. Once you get a good rhythm going with your diet it's easy and becomes habit. Also try and find more room for veggies. Replacing carbs with good veggies would make you lose weight faster.

There's "Overweight" as in "I'm edging around the fat I'm clinically obese" and "overweight" as in "if I lost weight it wouldn't hurt me and I would feel fitter, if I gained weight it would hurt me, but I'm not currently at increased risk of health complications" where you're clinically overweight. You and OP are that, but it's okay. It's not deal breaking with most women, its not bad for your health and it beats the FUCK out of being underweight which rapidly becomes dangerous.

Less beer and bread will probably do it. The guy who said "Less carbs" is right but vegetables are carbs. Eat more veg and use them to replace the bread and beer. Exercise a bit, do weights.

If you're good at numbers you can calorie count to have a rough idea whether you lose or gain weight but don't lose sight of eating a balanced diet. Fat is only bad because it's the densest source of calories. Carbs are slightly addictive.

I have to fight to keep my weight steady and if my routine breaks I find it causes me issues. I am a bit of an overeater though so I eat slightly less than maintenance by default, occasionally I do stuff that puts me a bit over and it's fine. Sometimes I pig out and if I've been running a deficit for a while then I don't need to do anything more. If my weight drops below a certain threshold (though I use my waistline as a secondary measurement I've gained a few pounds of muscle over the years and so I end up really thin at what was a good weight for me before) I eat more food. If I eat a lot repeatedly in a short period I run a bigger deficit until I'm about on par. Now if your struggle is the reverse and you lose weight the moment you stop counting then you should aim for a slight deficit and if you need to lose weight just cut back a bit for a while. Don't skip meals though, just cut down the carbs and fat and booze a bit.

Also exercise more. Not a load, do some moderate or high intensity cardio a couple of times per week and lift weights. Not because this helps with your problem but because its good for everyone. You may need to stick an extra egg or a few handfuls of nuts into your daily foodbag though.

Eating the same thing most days as long as it's pretty much a rainbow every day. If you're getting 5-7 servings of veg, a serving or two of fruit, a balanced and decent amount of protein, a little fat and ensuring you're getting all the minerals and other stuff you need you can eat the same every day. If you're not someone who enjoys food then you can fit bland "utility" food in more painlessly than the rest of us. For example a serving of cottage cheese for calcium and protein or a mix of nuts for certain minerals, or fucking oysters because they're great for you even though they taste like seawater. Though you look at what you eat, what it covers, make sure you got everything and there's a little wiggle room and you're set.

What's personally helped me and shrink my stomach/appetite was switching to a smaller plate to help control portions but also making smoothie for breakfast and lunch (I wake up late and it fills me up until dinner); 1 cup of sweet cherries, 1 cup of mango/peaches, a few pieces of pineapple (like 4-6 pieces), 4 TBS of nonfat greek yogurt, and a cup of almond milk and blend. Seriously dropped 12 lbs by doing this and looking slimmer than I used to.

This is a good move. Psychology at it's finest. Just use smaller plates, and less food will look like more. It sounds a bit retarded, but it does work

Absolutely does, I even eat with small dessert forks too just to ensure that I slow down to eat rather than gobble it down like I used to.

the shake thing has been helping me a lot

I'm trying to gain weight though not lose it I'm a skinny fuck

but I never can eat breakfast and when I'm working 11 hour shifts I get really hungry if I don't so I've been doing something like a banana, a handful of blackberries, a handful of blueberries, some plain yogurt, some whole milk, and protein powder every morning

it's helping a lot

Sounds like you need some one-pan recipes. Google that and you'll find tons to work with.

I'd add more fat if you want more weight, fella. Since fats have 5 more calories per gram than carbs and proteins, you'll be stashin' calories in no time. Things like cheeses and oils, butter, lard, whatever you can get your hands on. I'm only kind of joking. If you want to gain weight is it possible to lessen your activity? Not to the point of losing muscle definition but just going less hard? That'll save you pounds. Also if you lessen your fiber intake your whole digestive system will struggle so do that and you won't be able to eliminate as much waste. Did you know your gut bacteria physically digest the fiber that we ourselves can't? If you don't take care of them they won't thrive and help you reach optimum prime (not a trans joke).

I think my diet is healthy enough so I'll break it down. I generally meal prep dinner for 5 or 6 days and just eat whatever the other 1 or 2 nights. Portion wise my body type is wildly different to yours by the sound of it so you need to work that out. I found cronometer.com when I first started prepping meals to be invaluable for getting sizes right. Theres infinite information on the google for finding out about how many calories you need, personally I always eat pretty much the same thing so it's easy to eyeball portions based on whether I need to gain or lose weight. What you really want to dial in is your macro nutrient ratio so find out what yours should be and have a closer look look at what you're eating. I personally avoid most refined sugar products so that's not something I really have to think about too much.

Muslea with fruit and nuts mixed with yogurt of choice, be careful with the sweetened yogurt if you're watching your waist as some brands put an almost unbelievable amount on sugar into them. I personally eat fairly heavily sweetend yogurt with some kind of fruit in it but it's pretty much the only source of refined sugar in my diet.

If I'm trying to bulk a bit my go to for lunch is a mixture of canned drained and rinsed 4 bean mix, a tinned tuna of choice and a sliced up cucumber with a bit of salt, pepper, maybe some chilli sauce. My personal favourite is avocado instead of cucumber but I struggle picking ripe avocado so I generally go cucumber.

My prepped dinner is a mixture of brown rice, chicken thighs though breast would be healthier, slightly under steamed broccoli and usually another vegetable of choice. I cook the chicken covered with foil in the oven at 200 C for 2 hours. I put the chicken in a medium tray, chop up an onion, some shallots, chilli, ginger, I just change up the flavour profile and spices depending on how I'm feeling that week, mix it up with a little olive oil and cover with foil. I find cooking it like this preserves the moisture in the chicken somehow so the chicken is tender and juicy when you reheat it in the microwave. I cook this for about 6 serves at a time and I guarentee it will cost about as much as getting takeaway food once.

Bit of a willpower thing to eat healthy but in my opinion, if you're exercising for gains meal prepping to regulate your macros and portion sizes is a really powerful tool.

When you realise the thread is ancient, smoke less ahaha. Might help someone else at least.
