    I got a question.

    I'm a high school wrestler and I needed to lose 10 lbs to get in the wight class i wanted to be in. I did it and i am still eating very healthy. Here is my everyday meal:

    Breakfast:2 bowls(small bowls really like 1/2 of a bowl each) of Fiber select cereal in Skim milk or Oatmeal. Nothing on days with weigh ins.

    Lunch: turkey snadwich in whole grain bread. Apple or pear. 5 carrots 5 mini tomatoes 5 celery sticks. sometimes low fat beef jerky(For protein)

    Dinner: Some type of meat. Salad. 2 Egg whites.

    Now my question is that my skin is turning white, like pale white. I feel fine and have energy every day. I just don't get why I am turning pale.

    ^^ Are you taking a multivitamin?

    You need more veggies in your diet to make sure you are getting all of your vitamins (also taking a multi would be a good idea)

    What IS a good multi-vitamin that doesn't cost an arm or leg or more than a can of baby formula, lol?

    Well I dunno what baby formula costs but GNC ultra Mega man is a good choice for the price. If you are getting enough fruits and good leafy green veggies in your diet a higher quality multi isn't as crucial so GNC brand is plenty good enough.

    just don't get the sport. It's a rip off. They took out all the good antioxidants and replaced them with Aminos (but not enough Aminos to impact anything)

    A follow up to your suggestion Clint.

    My wife hates veggies, I only eat a few, not to fond of them myself even though I know I need to incorporate them more into my diet.

    Do you know of any good multi-vitamins for people who don't eat enough fruits and veggies?

    Formula costs around 11 bucks right now I think.

    There obviously is no complete replacement but a greens drink would be the best substitute. Greens+ is the top brand but a bit pricier. Now foods also makes a good one that is cheaper.

    For people that don't like veggies the best thing to do is cook them into things. Like if you are making an omlete throw a handfull of frozen spinach in it. You can barely taste it.

    Also should note that if you are using a greens drink a multi probably isn't needed at all.

    Broccoli and Spinach are two big ones so atleast you will eat those two. You just have to experiment for some of the others.
