What's up everyone... I"m 5"9' and about 260. I don't know my BF % but I'm sure it's high.
I am a frequenter of the gym, and I like the feeling that I get when I go. My major problem is obviously my diet.
So my question for you all, is can I get a little help with a shopping list.
I understand protien, and good fats, but I just don't know what to buy when I'm at the store.
I am a computer technician, and I stay on the road a lot, so my meals are kinda hard to come by, unless they come out of a window....so I think ya'll can see the point here.
Any ideas, and I'm all ears..
Thanks in advance for the help!

Here you go, this should get you started:
The Top 30 T-Nation Diet Articles
or all of Diet and Nutrition Articles:
I realize some people don't like John Berardi, and several of those articles are his, but there is some great info in there.
I know you wanted a 'shopping list', but if you aren't willing to do a little homework to understand the 'why' of 'what' is on that list, I don't think that you would stick to a 'diet'.
BTW, my 'staples' are in no particular order:
Old Fashioned Oatmeal
Brown Rice (Long Grain, not instant)
FF Cottage Cheese
FF Organic Milk
Turkey (Ground/Patties/Links/Breast Filet)
Ground Beef (on occasion)
Eye of Round (steak!)
Tilapia or Orange Roughy Filets
Eggs / Egg Beaters
Frozen Veg (Peppers/Onions)
I cook lots of food 3x/week, my rice cooker was my best purchase ever, I love Mrs. Dash, and I should have bought stock in Tupperware.

Thanks guys....really appreciate the info. I guess i'm just a little impatient and want to see results much faster.
It's much easier to give up and get de-railed.

Start a log. both for yourself and for others. When you start keeping track of details, it seems more real, and you can look back on your progress over time. Its a marathon, not a sprint
