Been working out out for a few months now and I'm starting to get definition but I'm not seeing the real changes I know I should be. I know it's my eating habits. I have gotten rid of soda completely which helps. The big thing is I don't eat. I usually only have 1 meal a day and it's never healthy. Yesterday I had mozzarella sticks. Yup that was it for the day. I hate healthy food and I keep telling myself that I don't eat much so why not eat what I want. Would nutrition shakes help? How do I train myself to like stuff that is at least better for me? I know this is a weird topic and there aren't many people that have this oddity but any help would be appreciated.

Do you like any healthy foods? Like fruits and nuts are healthy but also very tasty. Try to incorporate one healthy snack or meal a day of something healthy that you enjoy eating and then gradually build from there. Maybe an apple, a slice of watermelon or a handful of unsalted nuts. You can't possibly hate every healthy food out there! Just take small steps so you don't overwhelm yourself.

I do eat a trail mix, not sure how healthy it is. But it is better than chips I guess. Fruit tends to go bad around here way before it's eaten but I do like grapes. I get up early and don't eat til like 11a at the earliest but I sometimes find myself snacking around 8 at night. That is too late when I go to bed around 9

Depends on the kind, but usually trail mixes aren't too bad. Grapes are a good start, maybe try adding one more fruit to your diet.... Breakfast is the most important meal of the day! What do you usually eat for breakfast?

I don't eat breakfast. Not hungry in the morning:-) when i do eat later it usually like a steak or a ham sandwich. Then i might eat again at dinner but usually not

Ok, I see... One meal a day does not seem enough for a body to function properly, especially if you are working out, so my biggest advice for now would be try to eat at least two meals a day and maybe a snack or two at some time. Try your best to make it healthy but just make sure you're eating enough otherwise you're starving your body. Food is important, we humans cannot survive without it! And don't forget- drink lots of water!

I follow a simple thought: food is made for nutrition, not for pleasure.
If you get pleasure out of it (if you like what you eat), it's a bonus, but it's not the goal.
The food serves only to keep you alive and working.
When you realize this, you can make better meal choices. Don't eat because you are hungry or looking for pleasure, eat because you need to be feed.

Eventually, allow yourself to recreational food, eat something you actually enjoy for the only reason of getting pleasure, or for social activities (go out for dinner or lunch with family and friends, etc).

Avoid everything that is pre-made with lots of sugar, sodium and chemicals. The best thing is to eat from the source: fruit, vegetable, meat, tea, natural juice... Nothing elaborate.

Good luck.

Btw, I don't do breakfast either. Neither dinner.
Only lunch and an eventual snack, so I know how you feel.

Breakfast as the main meal is a myth, doesn't work for everybody.
Trust what your body tells you and give it enough nutrients to work well.
And drink water... Lots of it.

Maybe look at intermittent fasting. Sounds like it would really suit you.
