I have become increasingly interested in healthy eating since doing a public policy paper on childhood obesity. I am in high school and participate in varsity basketball and baseball. My first attempt at "healthy" eating left me vary drained. I live at home and my parents generally do not purchase the most nutritional foods. Many days i substituted drinking water and going to bed for eating a dinner. Being that i vigorously work out at least once a day, within a week or two i constantly felt weak and easily fatigued. Then came the holidays where i was ripped from my attempts at dietary change being that i was around bad food all the time. I now wish to venture back and but this time to do it right with rounded diets and meals that will fulfill my energy needs. Any tips on a possible daily meal plan. Or the types of drinks, dairys, and grains i should be consuming would be great. Also i am not a vegetarian i do eat fish and chicken. I might be asking at the wrong place but tips on the best way to prepare each would be great. i think if i learn about what foods i need i can begin shopping for myself and maybe even help my other family member out a little in eating better. Thanks you very much for any help.
