I'm boring and eat almost the same thing every day (at least when I'm on plan!) If you're looking for a straightforward version of a diet, The 17 Day Diet lays it out well, though I couldn't handle the first phase (too strict, I've added more carbs than it has)

Breakfast: (100-150 cal (depending on egg choice) but very filling and protein carries me through, I'm eating on the run, so it's basically an open face Egg McMuffin)
1 egg or three egg whites, microwaved in a small bowl
1/2 Laughing Cow swiss spread
1/2 whole wheat english muffin

Morning snack (150ish cal):
Light yogurt (80 cal) and fruit (apple or grapes usually)

Lunch: (300-400 cal, depending on which LC you choose)
Lean Cuisine and a veggie only salad

Afternoon snack: (150 cal)
piece of fruit and either a piece of string cheese or serving of almonds

Dinner (400 cal)
2 C salad
4 oz lean meat
Some type of veggie serving
Small carb serving (one piece of bread or 1/2 c rice or potatoes)

Evening snack (150 cal-ish)
something chocolate (hot chocolate made the old fashioned way but in the microwave in the winter, 100 cal chocolate ice cream bar in the summer, sometimes a small piece of chocolate); sometimes popcorn (kernels popped in paper bag in microwave, no added fat)

If you like Trader Joe's, they have a great bar, too. It comes in Oat and Chocolate or Oat and Peanut Butter. I happen to love the peanut butter one (not a big fan of chocolate. I know, I'm crazy!!) Hope this helps with the sweet cravings. The bar goes great with coffee or tea.
I also chop up some almonds and add it to my Greek yogurts (usually the one with the fruit in it.)

No problem. GL... Oh... and the brownie actually tastes good. You wouldn't know you were eating a "low cal" treat! We buy them in a huge box at Costco!

I am weird, but I eat pretty much the same things during the day. Maybe you can get some ideas from them.

protein shake before workout

Cereal (there is a new Special K protein plus - 10g protein) I combine that with a Trader Joe's

Honey, Almond & Flax 9 Whole Grain Crunch Cereal (protein -10g)
protein bar with at least 12g protein,

Greek yogurt - I don't like it plain so I buy the Oiko fruit at the bottom. 1/4 trail mix that I try to keep under 180 calories/serving

Ricotta Cheese with cucumbers (not as weird as cottage cheese and sprouts!)

My dinners consist of a protein, carb and veggies.

I also must admit that I have a Fiber One 90 calorie brownie at night. I fit it in to my plan and it kills my sweet urge. There are probably people that say "no, no" to it but if that is the worst thing I do to my health so be it :)

Hope a couple of these things help!

Hello All

I am looking for food plan with just simple foods. I find the food plans out there have strange stuff like cottage cheese and brussel sprouts. No offense to those CC and Sprout lovers. I know this may seem on the lazy side but Iím hoping that someone has a food plan that they find it easy to stick with. My food tracker says I should eat between 1200-1550 a day. Iím looking for a higher protein plan since I get hungry again in approx. 2 hrs. Even if I get 1 day from my team members I can start building a real food plan with enough variety to get me through. I plan on going food shopping tomorrow and prep my foods and snack for the week on Sunday.

Iím open to prepackaged foods like WW or Healthy Choice frozen meals and Protein Bar and shakes.
