Help me /ck/, my body fucking hates me after all these years of eating nothing but unhealthy shit.

I need to start cooking my own meals or I could die, probably.

Where do I start? What's a simple, good recipe that won't destroy my body and I can't fuck up? Why is there no pastebin?

This attitude is why your diet is shit. Cooking good food is challenging, and you will fuck up on your first few tries. Just accept this and don't set your sights so damm low.

Get it out of your head that there are cheat codes. Food isn't an obstacle to work around, you need to make the process a fun game or you're just going to revert to eating garbage when you realize you can't enter SPISPOPD to make your oven shit delicious healthy meals.

That's a pretty open question, it depends on what's wrong with your body. Depending on one recipe for all your nutritional needs is asking for trouble.

You might want to check out the /fit/ sticky, there's some nutrition info there that isn't completely retarded, except for the Starting Strength nutrition info which belongs in the trash.

Having said all that, lentils and brown rice are pretty brainless and nutritionally almost complete, you can throw some chopped vegetables into the lentils towards the end and by using a different kind of veggies every day, you get a reasonably balanced diet. I like the red lentils for convenience. The nutritional differences between lentils are essentially negligible so it's a question of what taste and texture you like, and how long you're willing to spend cooking them.

My heart has been hurting for like two months now and my wounds won't heal for ages. I don't know what's wrong with me, no money for a doctor.

heart hurting, try lowering you salt intake.

Wounds thing might be a vitamin issues. More fresh fruits would be a good start.

Could also be caffeine abuse. When I got up to 6-8 cups a day I had a permaheadache that got worse when I went too long without, but still there even with some in my blood.

why would you do this to yourself? I eat a shit ton of food and I drink alot of unhealthy shit as well, but why would you allow yourself to get fucked up almost beyond fixing before considering a change?

Eh, 6-8 cups isn't that hard to fix. You fix it by cutting back. Sure the headaches get worse until your body gets used to it but the benefits outweigh the drawbacks. I'm down to 2 cups normally, 3 cups on a bad day, and it's totally fine.

Unless you have me confused with op, in which case, I agree.

Making your own soup can be easy. Especially vegetable and tomato based soups.

Basic chicken is also pretty hard to screw up. Buy some boneless/skinless chicken breasts, add a bunch of seasoning, and throw in the oven until done. Watch out for chicken breasts which have been injected with salt though.

Nothing good is purely healthy. Ultimately everything is unhealthy in some way if you eat enough of it. Everyone says it, but moderation and balance are the key.

In general though, even unhealthy dishes are much better if you make them yourself, as they arn't (usually) loaded with as much salt and other junk.

I'd also say, take things slow. No matter how shitty you've been eating, your body has learnt to turn whatever junk you are cramming into yourself into what it needs. If you suddenly change your entire diet, your body will freak out and you'll feel like shit.

Accept that it'll take time to build good habits. Focus on cutting back on the worst stuff in your current diet and go from there.

It starts to get better when you just start having the healthy stuff surrounding you. Available at all times, especially the times you'd just go get fast food. That means you shouldn't let yourself get hungry enough that you'll just go "fuck it" and get something bad because it's immediate. It might mean having snacks and meals ready for work and being out.

I only improved when I started making those changes.

Unrelated: yo, is it okay to eat the mango skin? Because I've been doing that.

Getting into a routine of eating something healthy at the same time every day helps a lot. Also replacing something junky you regularly eat with fruits/vegetables is good too.
