Bananas and blueberries for me. Blueberries help with inflammation too.

I'm current sitting at 2300-2500 calories pr. day mostly high protein meals, 20% fat and 40% carbs – the rest 40% is protein. Chicken, beef, protein shakes, almonds, veggies, fruit ect. 

If you feel good, you perform good 🙂

What I've found helps me is not eating a ton of carbs during the day or early afternoon. I crash once I have any breads or heavy carb foods. I stick to salad, fish and some fruits and eat my carbs when I'm done with work/my call block. Ymmv, but I'd suggest cutting carbs/processed flour during the day and saving them for later.

Fasting improves mental health - fruits and veggies for sure.

a great detox first thing in the am is 1 glass of water with fresh juice from 1/2 a lemon. you can really tweak it to your liking too - adding mint (more detox benefits & feels fresh), heating up the water (sometimes better for the body), adding chia (filling & high in Omega-3s btw), etc.

I'm big on fruits, vegetables and lean meat to help improve mental health. I love being able to inhale a whole pizza but that just completely shoots my mental (and physical) health down the drain for a few hours.

I try to avoid big/heavy meals all together… it’s not so much the specific food (at least for me), it’s the amount. 

if I go to Taco Bell and eat $25 worth of food at lunch, my day is pretty much over. If I’m craving Taco Bell though, I might chug a protein shake and then go to Taco Bell and get one thing off the menu.

over all, I’d say I eat extremely clean and lean, but I allow myself to splurge on some unhealthy menu items once a week

This may sound counter-intuitive, but I am a foodie that LOVES taco bell. I could slay every item on that menu. I can't get enough of that fake processed cheese. It's so glorious.

I like shakes for breakfast & lunch - same everyday so body knows exactly how to process it.  Removing variability from diet helps tune into how you feel and adjust when needed.  Also like intermittent fasting with keto.  Has improved my mood and operative capacity on the daily.
