Don’t join a diet plan. Eat healthy.
Plenty of veggies and lean proteins (fish, chicken, the occasional egg.)
No soda, no desserts or syrups. Nothing fried.
I would say stick mostly to fruit, yogurt OR hard-boiled egg, and nuts for breakfast, maybe occasionally a healthy, low calorie, low fat cereal with milk. Oatmeal is good as well, just be careful with the honey or sugar. I actually like to eat yogurt with some drained canned peaches and yogurt and maybe some nuts.
Lunch should be a salad (maybe w/ chicken for protein) and low cal, low fat dressing (Italian’s a nice tasting somewhat healthy choice) or lunch meat with lettuce, cheese, maybe tomato rolled into it.
Dinner should be lean meats with plenty of veggies (a side salad or steamed veggies–asparagus is a great choice) and maybe some plain rice (not cheesy or lots of added flavors.) Beans are a good side as well.
Snacks should be veggies and maybe one serving of fruit a day (in addition to your breakfast), cheese, nuts, or my favorite–edamame soy beans. Add a bit of salt and you’ve got a healthy, protein-filled snack that actually has the nutritional value of a vegetable.
And drink LOTS of water! This helps your body cleanse itself and often curbs hunger. A lot of times when you think you’re hungry you’re actually thirsty. At least 64 oz a day, I shoot for closer to 100 oz.
Hope I helped you!! 🙂
