    I'm 5'6'', 120 lbs. My friends always compliment me on my shape but I honestly think I can be better. I go to the gym 2 times a week but my diet is pretty terrible... (i still eat whatever i want). i take my flax/fish oil and i run a lot. I hate being in college and almost being forced to eat unhealthy good. i want a lower body fat % mostly so my abs can be more visible and overall lose more body fat. any help with this that isnt too dramatic? i mean, i'm in good shape but would like to be HEALTHIER.

    Carbohydrates:

    General Rules for Eating Healthy
    • Get used to the taste of food without dressings, sweeteners, etc. Ultimately you'll grow to like the natural taste of foods you once thought tasted bland.
    • Try to eat more like a true vegetarian (i.e. the bulk of the diet should come from fruits, veggies, unprocessed and unbleached food). But don't swear off meat.
    • "Supplement" your unprocessed vegetarian-like diet with the high-protein foods discussed above.
    • Add unheated healthy oils to your foods.
    • Drink only calorie-free beverages (green tea, water, etc.).
    • Unfortunately the worst foods usually are the most convenient and the most processed foods. Avoid eating for convenience alone.
    • Avoid any easy-to-prepare breakfast foods (waffles, french toast, etc) as they're loaded with fattening trans-fatty acids.
    • Avoid products containing the ingredients or words "partially hydrogenated," "high fructose corn syrup," etc.
    • Avoid fast/fried food.
    • Avoid foods or meals that are high in both fat and carbohydrate.

    You need to get your diet in check. I have managed to lose 23lbs in 2.25 months eating school cafeteria food, so it is possible.

    intentional. Ideally I would lose 2lbs a week, but since it is tough to count calories in a cafeteria I can't do that very well. But I have had minimal muscle loss.

    I am lucky that mine always has a big thing of cottage cheese and baby spinach for salads so I can supplement with that.
