So after drinking soda for the last 18 years (my entire life), I finally quit drinking soda, quit drinking caffeine, and drink water every meal every day!!
I'm at about 185 now with pretty cut arms, forearms, calves, and shoulders but my belly has got this bloated look to it ALWAYS.. if I eat ANYTHING, my belly swells up like a balloon and I think my chest has added a bit of fat to it because my pecs have become "jiggly" *cringe*
I have eaten awful my whole life.. fast food.. fried food.. anything with 100g of fat in a meal and i've probably eaten it twice over. I lost a lot of weight in the 10th grade by literally starving myself to 300 calories a day and it took two years for most of that to come back to me.
The lowest I got down to was about 137 and I weighed about 190. I'm now at about 185 with a mix of muscle and fat.. still not the look I want.
Can anyone give me a good list of foods to buy at the grocery store and to just eat those? I've been eating baked chicken, tomatos (with salt and pepper "bad??"), carrots (with salt "bad?"), and chips and salsa. I can't weight myself because my scale shorted it out due to water damage but I imagine i've lost a bit.
I also wanted to look into supplements. What would be some good "beginner" supplements for someone who just wants to get into shape and lose the belly (again.. )
