Without further introduction, I'm starting a thread that I hope will be a good reference of solid nutrition info. Basically, I want this thread to be a compilation of all of the nutrition/supplementation principles that virtually every reputable expert in the field agrees on. If in doubt, leave it out. I'll start. (In no particular order) 1. Eat your veggies. 2. Eat lots of lean protein. 3. Even if not absolutely essential, a quality, personally suitable multivitamin/mineral never hurt anybody. 4. Stay hydrated. 5. Avoid hydrogenated oils and high fructose corn syrup like the plague. 7. Take fish oil. 8. Be mindful of excess sugar consumption. 9. Calories DO matter. Eat as needed for your goals. 10. Whole, natural foods (almonds) and foods relatively close to their whole state (almond butter) are superior to processed foods (Almond Joy). 11. Eat breakfast. There's 11 off the top of my head, what do you have? Added by other members: 12. Diet first, supplements second. 13. Eat a variety of foods.
