    I live in San Francisco, so my diet is mainly burritos. MMM,mmm!

    Cereal is a close second. Rice Chex or Cinnamon Toast Crunch, thank you very much.

    I am a spaghetti freak!!!! Been hooked since I was a kid. There is a place in Providence RI, on Chalkstone Ave. called Mainelli's. Used to be the best in town when I was a kid. All the bent nose guys named Guido ate there. I could live on that stff.

    I try to eat no processed foods.

    Breakfast: Just bread with butter and honey, marmelade or just cheese, coffee, butter milk with orange juice, or apple juice mixed with mineral water.

    Lunch: varied, mostly veggies and pasta, or v and rice, or v and potatoes, you get the idea. Meat only once or twice per week, sometimes less or fish instead.

    Dinner: see lunch

    Sometimes a piece of cake and coffee (or tea) in the afternoon (weekends)

    I've been doing the Atkins thing trying to become less of a tubby whore, so I eat a lot of sausage and eggs. Sometimes throw in a porkchop or steak to keep it... err... kind of fresh :p

    So meat with a side of meat with cheese on it.

  13. I think that the Atkins diet is dangerous. Well, it's only dangerous because it's popular, but most people don't even really know how to follow it properly. A lot of people think that it just means that you eat a lot of meat and no carbs, when in actuality you still eat some carbs, and you eat a lot of fruits and vegetables. Eating a lot of meat can make your arteries unhappy. Also, like most other reasonable diets, you're also supposed to excercise regularly.

    Anyways, back on topic. Since I used to run cross country, I eat a lot. The problem is, I don't run often anymore. I eat a lot of noodles (ramen and others included) and a lot of rice. Lately I've been into sandwiches with mayo, ketchup, mustard, barbeque sauce, salt, pepper, turkey, fried egg with green onion, cheese, tomato, a lot of lettuce, and pretty much anything else I have lying around. Tastes great and only takes about 5 min to put together. yum. oh yeah, on wheat bread. That white bread stuff seems so fake now for some reason.

    I just saw a BBC Exclusive show on Atkins, and their result was that Atkins works because protein-rich meals still hunger better (the body can control satiation[?] better), so that you eat less calories. That's all.

    The low carb factor per se is not as important. You just eat less.

    Breakfast: Nothing
    Lunch: Nothing
    Dinner: Nothing

    Seriously, it's not uncommon for me to go 24-36 hours without eating. I tend to drink about 1-2 gallons of water a day, though. Then I usually remember/realize I'm hungry, and have a package of ramen or a sandwich, or some burritoes (made, not those microwave ones that come in a box) and I'm off to the races again.

    At the moment, though, I'm pigging out on a Dominoes pizza. Nothing like cold pizza in the morning, eh?

    Sushi, my kingdom for good sushi! In particular, I love tuna (raw) and freshwater eel (which they usually grill, don't generally serve eel raw). Don't skimp on the ginger and wasabi mooshed into the soy sauce puddle either. I could eat it every day, and if I lived in Winter Park, FL, I WOULD. (ask Gard about the restaurant, Fuji - wowsers.)

    Coffee is my breakfast, usually, as well.

    Lately I've been trying to make trail mix a staple of my diet. Heavy on the dried fruits, low if any added sugar in the fruits and low/no preservatives, preferably.
     
  20. Lean Pockets. Everyday for lunch at work for... almost five years now.

    Before that it was those low fat burritos from Costco- same routine, everyday at work for something like 7-8 years.

    They fit nicely into my lunch box. :)

    If,however, they were the only thing in my 'fridge at home I'd starve to death before eating them. :help:
