How to eat healthy when I don't eat
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.
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.
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.
