    I find this interesting because these foods don't necessarily make everyone's short list, but they are PIVOTAL to my well-being. I rarely have to go without any of these for more than a day or two, but when I do, it's awful.

    -Oats, steel cut when I can, old fashioned rolled when I can't.
    -Natural peanut butter.
    -Plain yogurt
    -Milled flax seeds
    -Magnesium supplement
    -Fish oil supplement
    -Whey protein. Actually, if I find myself lacking protein at all, I feel pretty bad.

    When I miss any of these foods, I feel fatigued, sluggish, and agitated.

    Where are the meats, the fruits, and the veggies? While I eat them all daily, the immediate consequences of missing a day of spinach or turkey aren't nearly as bad as when I miss out on oats or natural PB, for example. Do I know why? No.

    I find this interesting. What are your lists? Do they look like mine?

    That's weird b/c for me it's broccoli. I always keep a bunch steamed and convenient in the fridge.

    I completely agree about the oats. I could have a massive breakfast but if there's no oatmeal I feel like I'm missing something.

    Spinach or any other veggies to be honest. I need them everyday. Fruits I can hack not eating everyday but I do love Cantaloupe. Meats!!! If i dont have my meats or if I dont even eat every 3 hours, I become very agitated. I also need my fish oils and greens multi...without them, I dont have the energy I usually have.

    Cheese is one of those foods that tastes good to me, but makes me feel "weighed down," for lack of a better term.

    I feel like shit without carbs..if I don't have at least 100g in a day it is just a shit day. Same goes for meat. I need at least 40g of protein from beef/chicken/pork or I feel like I want to kill myself.

    Your winner, and still reigning champeen....FISH OIL!!!!!

    When I'm staying at my girl's place and I can't have my fish oil, I feel noticeably worse after only a day or two.

    Vegetables in general. Going without some green leafy things makes me feel, I don't know, greasy, dirty, sluggish, ugh.

    For me the only way to start the day is with oats or shredded wheat & mixed berries followed by cottage cheese mixed with fruit salad. On the weekends I will often have bacon & eggs with toast and sometimes baked beans and it just doesn't give me the same energy boost.

    i sometimes feel pretty bad trying to make weight...I am on my fault all day with work and I also work 60 hours a wk...so putting yourself in a calorie deficit can def take its toll on me. BUt yeah, I dont feel bad if I miss any certain food but I def feel great when I get a lot of veggies in...

    Mainly veggies. How can I put this?, it's not that I feel sluggish if I don't have them but I just feel so much better when I do. I hope that made sense.

    For breakfast only thing I can eat is a protein shake. For lunch I prefer meat+veggies because rice etc. make me sleepy.
