    How did you get so dehydrated that it became a "holy crap" situation. I hope this doesn't come off as insulting. I just honestly whant to know.

    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.

    Ok, so what should be in every meal I have? A checklist of sorts, for me, the skinny ass ectomorph.

    Good question, now this is a very difficult question because everybody is going to have an opinion on this. I am going to tell you the first thing I tell my clients before they start a wellness program with me. These are the basics.

    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

    There are different types of cleanses, or detox programs that are available. I recommend that you do some type of cleanse once or twice a year. You can cleanse your liver, galbladder, kidneys, blood, digestive system.... etc...

    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.
