I'm on a slow-carb diet, /ck/, and really struggling. Everything is bland and gross even after the insane craving for carbs goes away.
Here are the rules:
>Rule #1: Avoid “white” starchy carbohydrates (or those that can be white). This means all bread, pasta, rice, potatoes, and grains. If you have to ask, don’t eat it.
>Rule #2: Eat the same few meals over and over again, especially for breakfast and lunch. You already do this; you’re just picking new default meals.
>Rule #3: Don’t drink calories. Exception: 1-2 glasses of dry red wine per night is allowed.
>Rule #4: Don’t eat fruit. (Fructose –> glycerol phosphate –> more bodyfat, more or less.) Avocado and tomatoes are excepted.
>Rule #5: Take one day off per week and go nuts. I choose and recommend Saturday.
Foods that're emphasized are eggs, chicken, spinach, beans, and lentils.
You mostly eat proteins and vegetables. Tomatoes and Avocados are allowed. No dairy aside from Cottage Cheese because everything else provokes an insulin response.
I've been on the diet before, and lost 30lbs in one month. So I know it works. I just need more variety and flavor to keep on it. The main issue is cost. I can't afford 3 bags of chicken breasts per week on top of all the beans and fresh vegetables, even if that crap did taste good.

I'm a german beer trinker, though up until now only "Helles" which is the mass produced stuff everyone drinks in bavaria, the occasional Hefeweizen and a dark beer here and there.
I enjoy german standard beer very much, but lately the beer threads on /ck/ made me want to explore the world of craft beer. So I went and got pic related.
Am I dun goofed?
And which one should I try first?
Btw, the first 4 beers are from german "premium" brewers (Braufactum), it's an introduction set:
>1 Schwarzbier (black beer)
>1 Märzen (~pale lager)
>1 pale ale
>1 bitter pale ale
