Hello everyone. I am trying to get started with working out and I have heard that your diet is essential to producing results. The problem that I face is my busy schedule, my lack-of cooking skills, money, and support from my family. I am only 16 years old so I find it hard to diet and make my own specific meals.

Are there any hard foods(such as nutrition bars, etc) or easy to make foods that I can eat without going on a full out diet? Will I still see results? I am planning to eat healthy by not eating any fast food or snacks and such, will that help?

Help is very much appreciated. Thanks!

Eat whatever u can and calculate it correctly to hit ur daily macros. If that means u can only eat junk food then u will get better results eating junk food and calculating ur macros then eating "healthy" and not knowing how much ur consuming

Get a calorie counting app like Myfitnesspal and log everything you eat even if its not the best food you will be able to track and adjust. If you don't have a smart phone you can sign up online and use it the same. Good luck you will not regret getting in shape!!!

+1 to the post above. Focus on proper lifting form, the rest will take care of itself when getting started.

Also agree with above, I was suggesting to use the app more as a tracking tool. From reading the OP's post it sounds like they may not have access to some or all of them foods as well as no way to get family to help stock them. I can relate there was no healthy foods in my house growing up. That's hard for some to understand.


Edit: however OP there really is no reason you cannot learn to cook your own foods at 16. you can prep foods for the week to make it easier. Saying you can't cook is really saying I'm to lazy to try Haha.
