if it is in your calorie range and healthy go for it. Me........well I would be bored to death with that kind of eating. I get bored with food so I need to change things up. But if this works for you good luck.

for the reasons stated above, it can really work for some people. but i think if you want to do it that way you need to have a list of backups. because when you only have one way that works for you, the minute something happens to put you off that one way you'll find yourself in trouble. whereas if you can pop down a list of three or four other options that fit the bill then you have a better chance of success. so if you usually have a bagel and cheese for breakfast, great. but knowing you could also have a veggie burger or an omelet or a curry can be a lifesaver if you find yourself out of your usual situations. and as long as you have those backups in place, it's fine to eat your most preferred item most of the time.

If you can stand to eat the same thing every day, and all the nutritional groups are covered in the day, more power to you.

Personally, I couldn't do it -- I'd die of boredom -- but if you can, and it is balanced, you're golden. No having to THINK about what to make, that must be great. Seriously do appreciate your ability to do this.

I have 2-3 go-to breakfasts, a couple lunches, and then whatever my family is having for dinner. Not a huge variety but I find comfort in knowing what a few good choices are.

I pretty much eat the same thing for breakfast and lunch too! I have my power protein breakfast that if I don't eat it, I swear I am starving the whole rest of the day!

I was doing the same thing for a LONG time. But since Sept I had started gaining a slight bit every month and have been extremely frustrated. that I recently just wrote out a plan to change up my lunches and snacks during the week, and I am actually losing weight again.
So now I have set up to have 3 different lunches mixed up during the 7 days. And my snacks are about 3 and those mix as well.

I have the same breakfast everyday,as well as snacks....rotate between 3 different lunches,and then dinner is whatever I make for the family..so that changes daily.So far it's working...but I can see how the pp says over time it might get old and the desire to go off diet might be there.

No, it's not bad. As long as it works for you, there's no reason to be worried. Variety is good though, it helps stave off boredom and helps prevent you from going "off diet" because you're tired of the same things.

I eat pretty much the same thing every day for breakfast, lunch and snacks. I usually switch it up for dinner. Is that "bad"? It's just easier for me not to have to "think" about what to eat every day.
