I gave up on trying to eat what was supposedly healthy within about a year of starting, my energy level went way down, and so did my stamina, sleep was restless, and ambition almost non existent, and constantly exhausted.
So I made a conscious decision that I didn’t want to live longer in misery, I’d rather live a shorter life while enjoying my meals and my life. I typically eat out 2-3 times a week, and cook full, tasty meals for myself on all other days. If I’m in the mood for fast food, I go for it, although the urge isn’t very often. About once a month, to boost my veggie count, I’ll go out for Chinese food.
So my decision is to eat what makes me feel healthy, rather than what others tell me is healthy.
