I'd try to add a salad after dinner...Make that your late evening snack. You can cut up an orange and use some of it's juice for the dressing too...making it a sweet, low cal, evening snack. Maybe a cup of baby carrots and sliced up red pepper for a snack in the middle of the day....

If you fill up on healthy (non processed) food, you'll keep your calories low and your fullness high.

Whether you think you can, or you think you can't...You're right!

Inside me lives a skinny woman...but I can usually shut the b*tch up with cookies! :o)

Where are your fruits and veggies?

Aside from your morning banana, I don't see any veggies at all, and little fruit.

The Dippin' Dots are fine, but they should not be a part of your minimum; I would always strive to eat at LEAST that minimum in whole, balanced foods (not treats or junk) to prevent nutritional shortages. Treats come in the rest of your range.

Have you entered this in your tracker? I would be concerned about your protein intake, but I'm not sure how much you've got, since this isn't a full amount. :) YOu can pre-track in your tracker and make it public so we can see exact numbers. (Weigh that banana!)

Hi everbody! I just wanted some insight on my meal plan for the day. Some info: I'm female, 21, 5'4", 225lbs, sedentry/light lifestyle. This morning I lifted weights (5lbs). May do some Zumba tonight (not sure). Below is the food plan.

Quaker maple brown sugar oatmeal (high fiber) 160cal
1 small(ish) banana 100cal (roughly?)

2 hard boiled eggs (no yolk) 40cal
1 oats and chocolate chewy Fiber One bar 100cal

Lean Cuisine Chicken Club Panini 360cal

Zatarans Jambalaya Rice Mix (reduced sodium) 1/4cup 160cal
Polish sausage (2oz) 180cal
8 small shrimp 40cal

Dippin Dots (cookies and cream) 180cal

I believe it comes out to be 1320cal total. Correct me if I'm wrong!

I also drink roughly 3 16.9oz water bottles daily. No cokes, coffee, or tea. Thanks in advance for the comments! I just wanted some input as to whether this was a "decent" meal plan. I always eat oatmeal in the morning. I seem to struggle the most at dinner time. Can't wait to hear everyone's comments!
