I don't follow "diet" plans. What I do is:
* I eat whole/healthy foods in place of crap foods. What does that mean? Well, dinner might be grilled chicken with brown rice and green beans. Or a piece of steak with peas and carrots. Or salmon with a salad and a side of brussel sprouts.
* Snacks might be something like: an apple. popcorn. roasted cauliflower, yogurt
* Lunch might be chicken breast on whole grain bread. A bowl of steamed carrots. 2 hardboiled eggs.
Nothing complicated about it - no exotic foods. Just real food. What is missing is junk food, soda, candy, etc.
You need to start tracking your food daily. It's on your nutrition tab above. You can preplan your daily food (you know your having scrambled eggs with whole grain toast for breakfast, lunch will be salad with chicken breast, snack will be yogurt, dinner will be chicken and rice) or you can do what I do and enter as you go - subtracting from the total.
Learn to read food labels to make decisions on what is healthy - what will give you the most caloric bang for your buck - or google the foods.
You begin to learn that an apple as a snack has 100 calories and fiber to help you feel more full, whereas 25 fritos have 150 calories. An apple will make you feel fuller than 25 fritos.
As far as when to eat...you eat when you are hungry, just like normal. I couldn't imagine diet that dictated to me *when* to eat.....
The best exercise in the world is to bend down and help someone up.
