Good day guys. Jun Yu Xian again for another beginner's inquery.

 

Please suggest a diet that could help me in cultivation and also would help me make my body fit.

 

Note that I am not neglecting workout. I just want to want to eat something healthy.

Oh boy!  With this question you`re really opening the proverbial can of tuna.  Opinions on diet here on the forum range as widely as in the so-called real world.  You`re sure to hear from the vegetarian/vegan crowd.  I favor a more paleo-esque approach myself -- eliminating grains, sugar, and vegetable oils like corn and canola.  I believe fatty meat is a nutrient-dense food that most people need and not the culinary bogeyman it`s often made out to be. There`s good information about this approach here: https://marksdailyapple.com/blog/.

 

@Taomeow recently suggested the idea of simply eating foods made by human beings and avoiding foods made by corporations.  I think most people would drastically improve their diets by following this one rule -- whether they otherwise gravitate toward tomatoes or rib-eyes.

Well I am a protein/fatty food guy. I barely eat veg, but if it is ideal then I would eat.

If you don’t eat vegs, then maybe you could have herbal teas daily since it’s easier to get the nutrients the same way. Are you buy chance a tea person?

This is also important as today food are produced with heavy chemicals and stored with chemical preservatives that are not meant to be in our bodies. Eating organic or from local markets might be the best.

Another handy way to get vegetable nutrients is Spirulina tablets.

yes I am, but mostly I could only afford lipton tea bags which is a commercial brand. I am even planning to cultivate my own tea leaves.

Lipton is one of the worst brands out there as it is full of pesticides.

 

As you are also in the Philippines if you are in Manila there is an organic group called Shumei selling moringa and mulberry tea for prices less than what you claim are beyond your price range. If you’re here I will personally show you myself because it is ridiculous to let income determine one’s Taoist commitment. Paying for things is one form of demonstrating commitment as I mentioned in your other thread.

Do stay away from Lipton, cultivating your own tea is perfect and even the best. I collect soursop leaves from a friend and make my own tea.

5da39b633366e_images(5).jpeg.8bd9646e5a340e069f060408de0b0fa5.jpegSo my mom bought this tea (Twinings Wild Berry), guys. Is it good? I tasted it, the taste is high tier and theres no acidic after taste like lipton, but it has lesser spirit than my fav tea (not lipton, but something written in chinese.)

 

Below is the chinese green tea (my fav).

Twinnings has its own issues with the tea estates in Sri Lanka but is slightly better than Lipton. As for the teabag you have, this is dragon well green tea.

Senior Grey, dragon well green tea? Is that the name of the tea I am holding on the latter pic?

it is the kind of tea and many brands like Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf and Starbucks also sell it so it’s quite accessible but the right brand is the issue to focus on here.

Look into high mountain Jiaogulan/Gynostemma teas. There are growers throughout Asia/China that have been passing down the tradition for many generations.  I have been drinking it for over forty years now.  Very healthy and very tasty.  I have my own private source but, I have been told that Immortalitea is a good accessible brand.

BTW, it is a sweet green tea, if you get any bitter taste, you have brewed it too long.

I adore this tea!  Drinking Gynostemma is like drinking pure liquid light.
