Nice! I've been doing the same pretty much and have lost 30 lb just on eating better alone over the last 4 months. I've also gotten more inspired to make my own little things like salsas and I'm going to try hummus either today or tomorrow along with falafels.

I try to do strenuous exercise each day but with my injuries it's not very easy so it's slow progress.

Which is still better than zero progress

I love making humus and tabbouli.

This is my first crack at middle eastern stuff but the recipes seem easy enough. If it's anything like the salsa recipes I won't be buying any brand name stuff once I start making it.

When I lived in Dubai as a nipper - Hummus and pitta bread was like my favourite thing.

The prep time is the hardest. I need to make my grandmother's recipe for kibbeh.

I really wanna make my own shepherd's pie. I know it's really easy but the prep time vs how long it would take me to polish it off is not worth it :lol

1. Stir fry some minced beef with onions and vegetables in a wok or pan

2. Wash and peel some potatoes and boil them to make mash

3. When both are done - pour mince into a baking tray and spread the mash on top.

4. Grill until the mash is golden brown

I usually have it with a drizzling of tomato sauce because it really is the perf condiment. Just like a pinch of salt is PERFECT on fried eggs on toast.

Thanks BF  ;D.

It has plateaued a bit now so I need to step up the exercises.

I'll do whatever I can manage.

I've 8 days off work starting today so don't have to worry about aching at work the next day.

Thanks! It was something I just needed to do and clearly it's paying dividends. Exercise is the one thing I need to get off my ass and do.

First attempt at falafels: taste wise, pretty solid but execution wise? Welp I should've listened to myself when I was rolling the balls and though "hey these are like meatballs, shouldn't I be using an egg binder?". Out of 11 balls only 3 made it but hey i still have nice cooked falafel filling.

Speaking of guys here losing weight, I too have been losing a fair amount of weight.

A bit of a backstory.  Around the time I finished community college in 2014 I was around 160-162 pounds.  Then I went back to Cal Poly Pomona and I was stuffing myself silly with Carl's Jr, Jack in the Box, Taco Bell, and lots of bagels that had some various cream smears at this bagel place on campus.  When I graduated in 2016, I weighed close to 175 and I didn't know why I was that weight since I was walking around a lot and stuff. 

So back in July-August, I decided to do away with fast food and shopped at my nearest convenience stores (Walmart and Smart & Final mainly) and bought some whole wheat bread, hamburger buns, deli meat, frozen fish fillets (shaped like patties), cheese slices, cereal (had to wait a bit patiently for the best sales), milk, and some fruits and veggies.  It's pretty affordable if you have an idea of how much certain items should be and pretty good.  The end result, I somehow lost 20 pounds that I didn't think would ever happen.  It feels good.  I don't have to feel like I'm bloated and lacking motivation.

How tall are you? 155 (if I did my math right) is a pretty low weight.

Apparently US feet are 10cm not 12 so using an online calculator to convert cm to feet and inches makes

someone about 2 inches shorter.

If you convert Mike Dirnts height of 175cm to feet - Google says he is 5'8" which he blatantly isn't.

So with grilling and seasoning, do you salt and season right before grilling, or do you do it and let it sit for a half an hour first. What's the best method?

I was reading about if you don't do it right then it can dry out the meat, so I am hoping to do it right.

That depends on what meat I'm cooking. With beef I rub it with salt and pepper (maybe some fresh garlic) and let it sit (in the fridge) for an hour or so. Poultry and pork I only spice as it goes out to the grill, unless its a brine or a marinade, which of course goes in the fridge for a couple of hours first.

This past weekend, I took my wife away to the coast for a weekend getaway. As a result, I had some awesome food at a couple of great restaurants.

Scallops with asparagus and fennel




And warm peel-and-eat shrimp (1/2 pound) with a crabcake and corn, and a side of conch fritters



Heaven.

Hell yeah. If I ever win the lottery, I'm finding out exactly how much seafood I can eat on a weekly basis without fucking up my health and then eating that much every week for the rest of my life.

I'm with you.  I could eat seafood every day.

I think the best seafood I ever had was a swordfish dish on our honeymoon.  I haven't seen it's like since.

Of course, I like things as simple as fish & chips or calabash-style fried fish and shrimp as well.

Yummy, sadly now that I have been diagnosed with gout, I need to watch my seafood intake.  It was never that much to begin with so I don't think much will change, but I don't think I could eat it constantly like you guys wish  :lol

Dell took us out to a famous hot dog spot in NJ, Rutt's Hut.  Pretty awesome hot dogs and even more awesome when someone pays for you.

That scallop dish looks phenomenal, is that pickled mustard seed on it? That would compliment the dish nicely for sure.

Not a seafood person at all. I mean, I can to fish n chips. I can eat a baked cod or salmon, but I would never order it.
I would never touch shrimp, lobster, crab, scallops. Especially with fennel!

I generally dig shellfish but can't stand the regular, swimming variety. Dip it in beer batter and deep fry it and I'm alright, but for the most part I'm not a fan. Scallops are awesome, though.
