"I'm a great believer in keeping it simple! Eat wholesome healthy organic natural unprocessed food and i really believe that takes out a lot of the worry.
ok so you've not got time to cook...watch less tv / play less on the pc / guitar / spend less time on the phone and get your friends round for a dinner party have it on a rota so that you all take turns!
eat every 2 1/2 to 3 hrs, nuts (unsalted), fresh fruit, dried fruit, fresh veg, cooked veg. meat / fish protein, bean / pulse protein, if you are curious about a foodstuff and it's not too scary, try it! keeping a food, mood and energy diary is a good idea! keep a lunch box with you full of fresh food for breaks and snacks. one of my favourites is smoked mackeral salad!
two fillets of smoked mackeral, cut to bite size.
chickpeas, butter beans, flageolet beans, kidney beans, broad beans (if dried soak overnight in water or top up container they are in with boiling water till ready to cook ) cook for 15 mins till al dente and add to fish with chopped fresh tomato, cucumber and rocket leaves. ( no salt needed )
be experimental in the kitchen, try new ingredients and have fun! eating is important and one of lifes great pleasures. I seriously worry that society is making us feel guilty for needing to do so!"
nothing beats the taste of full cream organic milk ( buffalo / cow / goat / sheep ).
it's funny how they all taste different, some are an aquired taste but worth trying, cos it might be something you like!

I have a client who is 16, lean and wants to gain weight (he is also working out 3/wk). In light of this I would like help in answering the following questions:
1. Are there any protein/health food drinks that he should buy to supplement his diet?
2. What kind of food should he eat to gain weight and when should he eat them?
