    You can't claim to be independent or self-sufficient if you don't know how to cook.

    Our society is enourmously unhealthy in diet.
    exercise is the key component not diet.

    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.

    Both are very important. If you eat processed crap every day, you're not going to be healthy (in the long term) no matter how much you exercise. And a poor diet also hinders your ability/motivation to exercise in the first place.
    Are you coming to bed?
    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.

    you won't be very healthy if all you eat is eggs and pasta.

    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.

    Sitting around not moving is far worse for your health than eating tons and working out.
