  1. I've been reading about the wonders of Kefir, Liver and buckwheat. I'm currently working in Poland and wonderfully for me every shop pretty much stacks Kefir, so I've been drinking it all the time, buckwheat is also common place and is often served in restaurants. Liver, buckwheat with fried onions is also on most menus! And on the side you can order a glass of kefir! Seems like heaven. There is one food that I believe has been completely omitted on this forum and one that is particularly good for vegetarians and that is Mung beans, particularly Yellow Split Mung Beans / Mung / Moong dal (so not the green one). The problem with most beans is farting and poor digestion, the yellow split beans are the only beans that produce no gas whatsoever and are very easily digested. They have a high protein content around 23% as well as a high carb content at 50+% and trace fat content. The great thing is the mung bean can be easily cooked and then mashed up so it becomes just like mash potato, or you can just cook some potatoes with it and mash it up together! Just thought I'd put it out there, only trouble for me is it's nearly impossible to find it in Poland (without an unacceptable price tag!), in the UK it's found quite cheaply in pretty much every Asian/Oriental supermarket.

    Fruit?

    I eat fruit pretty much daily (anywhere from 1-4 servings), but I have come across plenty of information on various websites (mainly bodybuilding ) that state that fruit should be avoided due to the fructose it contains. I understand that our liver can safely house up to 100g fructose, so I should be good eating as much fruit as I do, right? I'll generally eat apples, bananas, pears, watermelon and berries, and occasionally more exotic fruit. In Pakistan (where I live for 9 months of the year), I eat fruit seasonally, so guava, mangoes, melon, apples, pear, oranges, strawberries. I like to think that fruit is an important part of my diet, because it gives me quick energy for sports, and because I have a bit of a sweet tooth so I minimise cravings. I also heard that fruit should never be eaten with a meal, because it will ferment in the body? Sounds a bit weird to me, but I dunno.. I eat pretty clean in general. My diet is pretty balanced in terms of ratios, but I'm probably a bit low on fats. I currently have a small meal every 2-4 hours, containing 15-30g protein and a serving of veggies (V8 is my secret weapon!) I'm a very active person, currently running and playing soccer in addition to Foundation.
