I would start my day with some protein. Hardboiled eggs, cheesesticks, and turkey jerky are three easy, portable items that come to mind. I also love green smoothies for portable fuel. Egg whites or nut butters can be added to them for protein.

My advice is to slowly make changes to what you're eating, incorporating the foods you enjoy and even some treats now and then (just in moderation.) The more you can make this a permanent lifestyle change and less like a "diet", the easier it will be.

You might try tracking some meals in the nutrition tracker based on these foods to see how you do relative to your recommended calorie and nutrient ranges. Then you'll be able to see where you might need to make changes.

Hope that helps,

Coach Jen

Come tomorrow I am off to do my food shopping but wanted to double check my plan is ok. I have not been on a diet in a long time.
My plan is breakfast will be multigrain toast or something I can take to work to eat
Lunches will be salad with light ham and some days have it on a roll
dinner will be either vegies and meat or meat and salads
snacks hmmm, nuts and fruits, yougurt and musli
