Very, very darn good advice. Steve what other foods would you recommend besides Whole Milk, Beef, and Eggs?

EDIT: All of you answer the question above, it wasn't just intended for Steve.

Cheese!

Seriously...natural peanut butter and dark chocolate are a great healthy snack combo. Almonds can't be beat. And butter is great in moderation (It's very high in CLA as well).

Beef - check, (but all I have is lean steak) not sure what else I can make with beef and what to buy?
whole milk - check
cheese - need to get but what kind, cheddar, mozzarella, etc?
natural peanut butter - check
eggs - what kind of eggs? Whole? and should I keep the yoke for every single one or should I do 1 egg with yolk and 2 egg white)
almonds- need to get again
Tuna-check
turkey- check (sandwiches)

So your saying I don't really need the carbs like fruits and veggies? If so what are so good carb foods?

I use ground beef quite a bit just because it's cheap. And if I find anything on sale I will grab it.

Cheese - I like to go the string cheese route, but really anything will do.

Eggs - the entire egg. Good nutrition.

And I'm not saying avoid carbs. It's just that so many times "healthy" in bodybuilding terms equals chicken, tuna, wild rice and broccoli. I would rather see a hardgainer eat more "sturdy" foods like milk and beef then over-rely on too much rice to add in calories.

Quinoa is an uber carb source. It's a tasteless grain like rice, and mixes well with salsa and pretty much anything. Most health food stores have it. Oatmeal, wild rice, etc. are good grains. Fruits - eat your heart out. Veggies...greens, sweet potatoes, the usual suspects.

I'm no dieting expert, in the sense that I never get OCD about it, but I do think a lot of healthier foods with natural fats are wrongly demonized - beef, whole milk, butter, etc. My personal opinion is that you're better off eating these foods then overdoing rice. The more I read about the ill health effects from grain carb sources, the less of them I try to eat. I don't cut them all out, but I am eating far less today then ever.

Mozzarella Cheese (if we're thinking of the same cheese sticks) Is surprisingly low in fat and high in protein, this makes it a viable option for lighter diets.

Cottage cheese (I can't stomach the **** though).

Ham steaks - no really bulk specific but hell, I can't think of a better way to way up...

...Besides maybe bacon!

And sausage

Real mother ****ing macaroni and cheese (not that kraft bull****)

Fry everything you got in oil, don't use pam or the non-stick sprays

Basically rethink all the foods you've been avidly avoiding over the years. If it's not processed chances are you can easily work it into your diet.

Bacon and sausage sound good to me. I live in state known for sausage. So it's real sausage. Animal parts and no junk.

And real mac and cheese is the bomb. I love adding is salsa.

I do ground beef or turkey with salsa...pretty much the same thing. I ate that three times this week for dinner.

I love taco leftovers. The seasoned meat is great in omeletts.
Also, I have a short rant about eggs. What's with "I eat three eggs and six eggwhites for breakfast every day."? Eggs are a WHOLE FOOD, and should be consumed that way. The only exception is if you're baking a sponge cake or making cream cheese frosting for said sponge cake. Then go ahead and separate your eggs.
