What are some of the best things to eat?

Be aware of the caloric count in the protein bars you are considering, some of which will have up to 500 calories. This is way too many if you are interested in losing weight. Find a low carb protein bar that offers 200 calories or fewer, but still provides up to 15 grams of protein.
The ingredients of a protein bar are vital. Some of them will have an excess amount of artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. Small amounts of these ingredients will cause your body no harm, but because they are so prevalent in many of our foods, it is best to avoid them whenever possible.

Hey Easy, how lean or protein is what you call "particularly lean" And what are the best healthy fats? Oh yeah, what nuts do you recommend? I'm full of questions, but that's because this place is full of answers.

basically chicken/turkey breast, most any fish or the following cuts of beef
Eye of round roast
Top round steak
Mock tender steak
Bottom round roast
Top sirloin steak
The best healthy fats would be any of the fats from nuts (walnut has some extra bonuses), flax seeds/oil, olive oil (not as much when it is used for cooking as that oxidizes it), coconut oil, fish oil.
I'm probably leaving one or two out

All green foods especially Brocoli, brocoli is the king of nutrition.
Ketchup has lycopene, you can get lowcarb.
One of the best cutting diets i would do would include a lot of fibrous vegetable, high fiber black berries, and red meat.
If you eat grass fed beed and organic berries, it almost like you lived a million years ago, a diet of foraging and hunting. No dam Corn, corn is in everything now.

It's not that I'm severely dehydrated, it's more along the lines that I consistently don't drink any water in a day. If I have a bottle of water, it's a holiday.

For each meal you need to eat each of these macronutrients: Protein, Carbohydrate, and Fat. Without all 3 of these it does not constitute as a meal.
The best way to get each source:
Protein: Organic free range animals. Fish, Chicken, Turkey, Deer, Beef - all good sources of protein -- black beans, legumes, pinto beans
Carbohydrates: The best source is Vegetables - fresh organic -- sweet potatos, yams, Oatmeal, but I would stay away from breads and pastas. (if you can)
Fats: Good source of fats are: Vegetables - olive and cocunut oil, nuts, and fish.
You should be supplementing with a GOOD QUALITY multi vitamin, and a heavy metal free Omega 3 source (fish oil)
1. drink water (half body weight in oz/day)
2. cut out sweets
3. stay away from fried, processed, frozen, and packaged meals.
4. Eat more vegetables, you usually always need more
5. Have a positive attitude.
6. Anything that has 0 calories is Artificial and not made to go in your body!!!
7. Organic fruits vegetables and meats are very good for you
8. Do a cleanse every 6 months
9. Just because its "low fat" does not make it healthy
10. Learn to read labels - hydrogenized, artificial, High fructose corn syrup fructose, many other things = not healthy.
Hope this helps

Now Tone, I have a few questions about your checklist. First of all, why are breads and pastas bad? I didn't even know they were bad at all. Second of all, how much water should I drink in a day? You say half my body weight in ounces. I weigh 160 pounds. So 80 ounces a day or 1280 ounces a day? Also, if you could give me a couple examples of complete meals, that would be great, just to get a mental picture of healthy eating.
Oh yeah, one more thing. What's a good quality multi vitamin? And which one do I choose?

Buckwheat is actually a fruit technically.
I never eat anything baked. Baked goods are all high Glycemic Index foods and also have Mallard Reaction byproducts which are bad.
Use google - can't post links.
