I agree with others that what you ate was fine (actually sounds pretty yummy to me), but that you need to add some vegetables. I'm also concerned that maybe it wasn't enough, but I would need to know the portion sizes before judging that.

Why do you think it was unhealthy?

Just make tomorrow a better day.
I know my diet was bad today. I went to the fair and had funnel cake and a shaved ice and French fries. All were yummy. I'm over calories for the day, but you know what? No biggie. I'm almost always below limit and today was fun. Tomorrow I'll be back on track.

As far as calories go, if I read you correctly, you had 6 pieces of sweet and spicy chicken
which would be somewhere, depending on size/weight, from 1800 to 3000 calories.
You had 2 helpings of brown rice, but you didn't say how big the servings were.
2 servings (cups) of brown rice would be around 430 calories.
Those two things alone would be, say, 2230 calories. Throw in whatever else you had, and I would think that would be an acceptable amount of calories for the day, although I don't know what your calorie burn is.

I agree that if you had added some fruits and vegetables to your daily consumption, your food choices seem OK, depending what was in the sweet and spicy sauce, perhaps.

I think the only thing you were missing were some fruits and vegetables.

How many calories was that? I'm assuming by your name that you are male. It sounds like far too little food. I think I ate more than that before noon and I'm a 5'2 and 120 lbs female.

If this is just a one day thing, it's not that big of deal... but I would recommend getting some more veg and fruit in your diet and increasing your calorie intake.

Today I had brown rice, 3 pieces of sweet and spicy chicken and egg white for brunch. I had the same thing for dinner.
