You can't claim to be independent or self-sufficient if you don't know how to cook.
In terms of weight, it's far easier to get healthier from a healthier diet than from more exercise, if only because of time constraints. Rudimentary cooking knowledge is a skill, but more knowledge up to the point where people actually enjoy what you cook is nice to have.

I can't. This is important.

I think basic cooking is a skill that must be learnt, such as boiling pasta and frying eggs.
Anything beyond the basic means of survival is a hobby.
my diet right now is super simple but in terms of nutrition way better than eggs and pasta.
* grilled chicken breasts
* fried eggs
* variety of vegetable and fruit juices
* variety of nuts
* beans and peas
* special K protein plus cereal
* GNC mega men multivitamins
at first i tried to get by on milk and eggs for protein source but it was making me feel sick 24/7. i had to buy a cutting board and a knife and switch to chicken as primary source of protein - feels much better.
i will try to further reduce my eggs consumption and eliminate milk consumption altogether. to make up for the lost protein i will either have to increase chicken consumption ( i eat about 1 pound of chicken breasts a day now ) or to add protein shakes to the diet.
for now i am using juices instead of real vegetables because it is more convenient to buy juice and not worry about it going spoiled quickly. but i am only able to find most juices as "from concentrate" so i may need to start introducing some real vegetables into the diet as well.
