I rarely sit down and eat a proper lunch; I usually snack on beef jerky, an apple, and whole grain crackers totaling about 300 or 400 calories. This is something I'm trying to work on!

I'm really into Pita Pockets :) There's this pita made by western bagel called "the Alternative Pita" and it's full of fiber and protein for 110 calories. I stuff it with stacks of veggies and either salmon from a can or turkey. A bit of light mayo or some avocado give me the fat I need. It's my new favorite cause it's super easy to make and stays between 300 and 400 calories without much thought.

Spread low-fat cream cheese on wheat flat bread, add a slice of 97% fat free turkey, shredded carrots and peeled and shredded cucumbers. Roll it up, cut it in half and there you go. I also use romain lettuce or any kind you can roll up like a taco just omit the cream cheese and add avocado instead.

Frozen panninis from Aldi. The steak, mushroom, and cheese ones are great. Pretty inexpensive and less than 300 calories.

Either tuna salad or salmon salad made with stone-ground mustard instead of mayo over baby spinach leaves on a slice of 12-grain bread, low-fat mozzarella stick, and green tea. Apple slices for dessert if I'm still hungry.

Don't bunt. Aim out of the ballpark.

An egg salad sandwich on whole grain bread...only 350 calories for about a half cup of salad on 2 slices of bread. I use the whole egg, about a tablespoon of light mayo and 1/2 teaspoon of mustard...just enough to make it sweet/tangy and creamy!

Lately I have been loving tacos, I use whatever lean meat I cook through out the week, 1 corn tortilla, some pico de gallo, and lots for fresh lettuce. I have used fish, chicken, pork and shrimp! Feels like I'm being bad, but I'm not. Pair it with a side of fresh veggies and you are good for the afternoon.

often at work I will eat the tuna salad kits that have the tuna stuff along with 6 crackers. I also eat either an apple or a can of citrus fruit salad. Usually a couple hours later I will eat a light yogurt just to hold me over until dinner. All of that together is less than 500 calories!

You need to try the new frozen Contessa meals. I would normally walk past them in the freezer section, but they have great flavor; sesame chicken, chicken stir fry, etc. Made w/fresh veg, brown rice (which is rarely seen)and low in calories, salt and fat. Take a look, you'll be surprised. They really are wonderful and quick, about 7-8 min total.

I find that eating protein really fills me up the best. I would recommend making a tuna salad with low calorie dressing and then putting the salad on some low calorie crackers for some crunch.

I really like the special k crackers they are about 90 calories for 17 crackers.

You can also make a salad using any other meat like chicken or the canned salmon or even crab meat.

Any dry cerial in a plastic container and a container of vanilla yogurt. Sometimes I mix them together sometimes I eat a little of each. That and a piece of fruit makes a good meal. Any cerial works or if you are daring, mix a couple together and scoop it into a container that will travel. If you have a family, its a good way to use up the left overs.

I buy the big yogurts and make my own single serving in a plastic container.

This is just a thought but if the stomach pain happens immediately maybe it is a gluten issue. Have you looked into Siliac (Sp???) issues.

I love to make wraps on low card, high fiber tortillas (La Tortilla brand). I start with either hummus or tzatziki on the wrap. Add turkey breast, romaine or spinach leaves, roasted red peppers, and black beans. Sometimes a little feta or gorgonzola cheese. YUM!

I have had to deal with IBS and sorry I don't know what works either. I know salad and light greens are bad bad. I have been eating a whole wheat wrap with a vegie side, and almost always have an apple and that has been working very well.

Any of you out there have IBS or stomach issues? It makes lunch planning REALLY hard!! I try to have some fruit after my sandwich at lunch (otherwise I'm still hungry) But never fails, I get stomach pains right after!

I tend to bring leftovers. A small complex carb, a lot of protein and veggies. I think a larger lunch is the way to keep me going.

Lots of fresh fruits and veggies (I mix it up so I don't get bored. Then I also have a sandwich on light wholegrain bread (veggie, turkey, or chicken usually) or grilled cheese.

Sometimes I will have a wrap. I use a whole grain tortilla and I will either have that by itself or cut it in half and have it with fruits and veggies. Just kind of depends what I put in it. I love shrimp. I use different spices and have it by itself, in pasta, in a wrap, in a soup, on a salad, etc.

Soups and salads are pretty filling to me as long as I make sure to have enough protein and stay away from high calorie cream based soups or salad dressings.

I usually eat a turkey sandwich with some lettuce, tomato and turkey bacon or BLT omitting the turkey.
Often I'll have a pb sandwich too using reduced fat pb.
