Access to a restricted diet, effect?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created October 08, 2011 at 5:16 PM

Threw everything out last week. Boy do I sort of regret it, because now: I only have the following in my apartment:

Salmon

Cod

Chicken breast ( no skin)

Some multivitamins.

I will not be able to purchase food until my next paycheck, which is 2-3 weeks away. I realize that protein is the most important thing, and then vitamins. But will I be alright with no fats whatsoever? I mean, is the above diet good enough to last me 3 weeks? Are there fats in the salmon/cod that will be more than enough for me? Do I even NEED fat from other sources if I can get it from these fishes?

edit: I am George Foreman grilling all of these. So will that affect the fat levels?

that's too much protein, my friend. How much tons of those things do you have at home if you can live from it for 3 weeks? Why did you throw away all your food if you know you'll have no money to buy new stuff? However, you will survive 3 weeks on high-protein but it is not desirable... (see protein toxicity) Don't do it if you don't want to starve yourself from nutrients, fats, calories...

Hon, hit up your local food pantry, and check around on local paleo and food lists to see if you can get some help getting both some fat and some veggies. This diet is not only abysmal in terms of overall nutrient balance, but it's highly insufficient in fats. Bake your salmon and cod in either parchment or foil and USE THE BROTH. You don't say how much food you have in your kitchen, but anything under 1000 calories a day also means that you're going to be putting your body on essentially a starvation diet.

Are you serious? You threw out all your food without realizing you had no money to eat afterward? What in the world do they teach kids in school these days! You may have bigger problems than just your diet, or this was diet induced and you will be getting better soon. Either way good luck!

I'd echo the comments already made about needing more fats (especially) and veges - protein has it's place, but I'd rate fat just as highly. Incidentally, you haven't specified what size portions you'll be having, as that will have an effect on how much fat you'll be getting into your diet.

Also, my understanding of the grills you're referring to is that they allow fats and liquids to drain from whatever you're cooking. Firestorm's reply above has a good suggestion (baking your fish, and using the broth). Personally, I prefer using a frypan as it's great for reducing the cooking liquid afterwards, to serve over the meat.

Protein by itself doesn't a healthy diet make, and vitamins aren't necessary if you eat enough (and a variety of) fresh foods. Meat (mostly the traditional beef/pork/chicken, but also some beef heart and liver), fat (usually just from beef), eggs, coconut cream and some fresh veges are usually the minimum in my cupboards (plus home-made bone broth).
