Or, more specifically, what will your diet be like?

I suspect I will consume a lot of these:

They are cheap, and fast, and I eat them all the time already. If I'm in the mood for a fancy meal, I go with the high-end version of the same stuff:

I should also add that, once I get to Atlanta, my absolute first order of business will be to identify an acceptable source of sushi. It doesn't have to be great. In fact, I won't be able to afford great sushi with any kind of regularity. However, if I don't get my weekly sushi fix, I will probably not survive. All I'm looking for is a sushi place with a reasonable happy hour, or even a grocery store that does a decent job with it, like Whole Foods or Central Market.

I cannot survive without my weekly sushi. In fact, I am going to propose the "sushi cycle" when biochem starts, and hopefully, this will earn me a nobel prize, and I can use the prize money to pay for school.

For my sports nutrition, it comes down to two things:

I will use other things from time to time, but these two will remain constant.

That's about it. I hope it will fit into the budget.

Does any of this stuff have creatine? And, what are your views on creatine?

The stuff I use does not have creatine in it. I have no need for it.

My views on creatine are that it is one of the best supplements on the market for speed/power athletes. It can make you a lot stronger in short bursts. Run faster, jump higher, and so-on.

The year before I worked with Men's Basketball, the NCAA banned it. Sort of. We were not allowed to provide it to the guys, but they were allowed to get it themselves. Of course, most of them didn't, and what we saw was an increase in "little" injuries. Nagging stuff like sprained ankles. The reason is that it can really help you with your quick reactions, like how your body corrects for itself when you jump and come down on someone's foot.

Anyway, I think it is great for someone who has a need for it.

No, but I keep meaning to. The only one in Austin is practically walking distance from where I live. The thing is, I work downtown, and when I have sushi, we usually hit up one of about 18 sushi places within walking distance of work. Or whole foods, which is also walking distance from work.

Whole foods has pretty good sushi. Trader Joes on the other hand = terrible sushi.

The nearest Whole Foods is 2 hours away from where I'm moving for med school . . . . Trader Joes is 4 hours away. :( I don't know what the heck I'm going to eat. :eek:

there are three so called "health food stores' in Knoxville, which can help a bit Earthfare which (although good many places) sucks! warning do not buy any premade foods there because they have been known to put new 'updated' sell by/use by dates over the old expired ones if they do not sell it in time

Then there is Go Nutrition run by a great guy named Joe, it is small and they are big vegans/vegetarians

Finally there is natures pantry which is also small snooty and overpriced, but attached to a 'spa' with great massage therapists.

I would say your best bet is find a good local butcher and make friends with local farmers which are all around the area

Good to know, thanks. :D Since I work in a prion lab *wink wink* I don't really eat beef, sometimes I eat chicken and I eat lot's of fish.

I'm kinda granola about dairy and processed food, so I know it's going to be a challenge to find "real" food in the area, but I'm sure I'll survive. ;)

i'm known for making good greek and arabic food. i guess whoever has me in their class are going to be coming over my place for some home cooked greek food (gemista, dolmades, xoriatiki, keftedakia, makaronada, biftekia, elliniki kota, xoriatiki kota, pastichio, mousaka, aitherines, kabob, soublakia... mmmmmm).

BUTTTTTTTT, i am most well known for making my greek village salad.

I love greek food but this is one of my all-around favorites. I don't know anyone/any place that makes them really well. I used to baby-sit for this lady who made them and they were smack your momma delicious. And a friend's fiance made them. But they broke up. So now I make do.

Huh, unless you are going to some third world country, I am sure you should be able to find ample food wherever you go to study medicine, there should be grocery stores in the area.
