Hi everyone I\'m Promo~ Question about eating a variety of foods
 
Hi all. since this is my first post i thought i'd introduce myself
my name is promo. 24 years-old. taiwanese.
currently living in taiwan (a small island beside china :P )
stats: 162cm and 54kg and 20%bf
workout: weight 5x/week and cardio 20min3x/week
main goal: fat loss

i have a huge problem with eating a variety of food
i don't have a kitchen so i eat out always
the choices are all traditional chinese foods such as rice, chow-men, chicken feet, pork ears, tofu to mention a few.
basically almost everything is stir fryed (plus tons of soya sauce lol)
eliminating all the foods that are taboo (from what i've learned from tom venuto's ebook "burn the fat feed the muscle")
i'm left with very few choices: salad, hard-boiled eggs, chicken drums, sashimi (raw fish -> japanese food), wholewheat toast.
(btw i have whey and flaxseed oil).

i'm contemplating whether i should
1) just make do with those few food choices...but is it gonna be unhealthy in the long run?
or
2) make my diet less strict and just aim for a general calorie deficit?

anywayz. this problem is really troubling me (since i moved back to taiwan from canada).
hope i'm not wasting anybody's time.
would really appreciate any advice!^^ thx

Welcome to the site! You're not wasting our time!

Is it possible for you to get those types of food cooked a different way than just fried?

hi old school [img]/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
thx for the encouragement.
foods that are not fried and not high-carb are very difficult to find.

people here mainly eat rice and noodles.
i think i will try my best to keep starch intake low and to get some decent protein.
i've got flaxseed oil so healthy fat is covered.
and got fiber supplement and whey as well.

Welcome, Promo!

I would read this thread, here and see if you can get the foods in there. They are awesome for cutting! You actually want to limit variety on a cut due the sensory specific satietiy hypothesis. However, you must have the right foods and supplements if you do this.

Hi Promo. A few weeks ago I was in Reno for a few days at a conference. I had sushi (raw fish) every day for lunch and grabbed an apple at the snack bar afterwards. All in all I thought it was a good alternative to my normal luncheon meal.

Anyways, the point I want to make is raw fish is a good source of lean protein. You might want to make this the cornerstone (of protein) in your diet.

Also, are there sources of nuts, seeds and fruit in your neighbor hood. Generally these can be eaten raw and have very good storage life.

Good luck
