I have to watch that I don't get too many calories and carbs. I needed to up my protein also. I got ideas using the "MEAL PLANS" that is part of the nutrition tracker. You don't say anything about your preferences. I do try to eat a source of protein 3 times a day. For breakfast, I often eat a cup of low carb yogurt that is 80 calories. I add to it a have cup of frozen berries [I change the variety regularly.] I also add 6 plain almonds and a teaspoon of milled flax. [I do this partly to manage my cholesterol & it is working for me.]
For lunch, I often eat a large salad. If I don't have left over meat to top it with, I will eat a side of 1% Cottage Cheese or use soybutter on celery or light bread. I try to make sure I have half of my protein allotment before supper and at least one serving of a carb [fruit, dairy, or starch] at each meal. Hard boiled eggs are handy to slice over a salad. [I remove the yolks].
I have found that if I don't eat at least 1450 calories, I don't lose weight. My metabolism gets sluggish.
I also keep food scales on the counter above a drawer where I keep measuring cups and spoons. I know what snacks I will eat in advance so that I eat the right things. If I am not hungry, I skip the snack, but they are there.
