Water and coffee here. Full heavy cream at times in the coffee, otherwise straight. I limit carbs in the forms of sugars and grains. Our bodies preferred fuel is fat.

Not to mention your teeth will
thank you!

No processed sugar. Zero, ever. I know this sounds extreme but there is science behind it: sugar causes most people to have a response that makes them desire more sugar or carbs, almost immediately. Basically, it makes you feel hungrier than you really are. If you cut out sugar completely, you'll discover after about a week that you no longer crave it.

Here's the even worse part. All sorts of things have processed sugar. To succeed, you'll need to read a lot of labels and then cut out those foods. Sadly, cereal, almost any cereal, is right out.

Depending on how you are made, your particular body might have the same reaction to milk (which contains lactose, a sugar very similar to sucrose table sugar) and processed carbs (bread, pasta). If so, you need to cut those out totally as well.

Sorry for the bad news but if you do this, losing weight is far, far easier than if you don't.

Beyond that, protein and leafy greens should become your staples. You get used to it quick. This is how movie stars eat, and it works. First week or so is a rough adjustment though.

For exercise I like to follow one of Jim Stoppani's programs in the gym. Along with about 15 miles of running through the week.

For diet I do whole foods, plant based. No meat, no dairy, no processed foods. Eat all the beans, veggies, fruits, seeds, nuts, and grains that I want.

I'm 5'11" 190 lbs. 35yo. Since switching to a whole food plant based diet a year ago, I've never felt better, never performed as well, and never recovered as fast as I do now. I get plenty of protein to build muscle (contrary to popular belief, all food has protein), and have plenty of energy for all my workouts and for running around a busy operating room for 10 hours a day.

It's not so much what you eat as to how, but I do intermittent fasting (IF) and love it....only eat from 10am to 6pm. Eat cleaner in spring and summer, less processed foods, etc, but just doing the fasting I look and feel awesome....helps with insulin sensitivity, your body's not spending energy digesting food constantly, you're burning fat at the end of the fasting period, etc

Google lean gains for all kinds of info

IF and raw milk FTW!!

Add some milk in there also. It'll make it taste so much better.
