Trying to get back on the wagon, but I have sort of forgotten my healthy eating schedule that I was on for most of the past year. I used to be on Jenny Craig, but when I got off, I stayed on a similar eating schedule. But then my trainer told me to try Paleo (which is to eat whenever but with food group restrictions), and then I fell off the wagon, so I’m all screwed up. Also, among many of my other habits, I always forget to eat throughout the day. So I need a schedule to help me (a) get back on the wagon, (b) eat throughout the day (c) properly fuel my body in a well-rounded way.
So 6 small meals per day. Breakfast, AM Snack, Lunch, PM Snack, Dinner, Dessert. This is what I’ve got so far but need a little help to move stuff around.
Breakfast: 1 whole grain (e.g. Kashi or Fiber One bar), 1 dairy (yogurt or string cheese)
AM Snack: fruit
Lunch: protein, ??? (lean cuisine or grilled chicken sandwich w/ fruit)
PM Snack: fruit…. maybe throw some unsalted nuts/seeds in there
Dinner: protein, whole grain, veg
Dessert: dairy or low cal dessert (e.g. Skinny Cow)
Any suggestions are welcome.

Fruit before 10. Protein before 1pm. Salad without protein before 3. Protein with steamed veggies for dinner. Eat it late enough so you don’t wake up hungry.
No seconds. Decent portion size. Water with lemon… sugarless tea, stevia sweetener, coffee.
No sugars, pasta, rice or bread-
My best results have come when I shopped the perimeter of the grocery store and stopped using bars, lean cuisines and slim fast. Really truly.

I am all for eating clean, shopping fresh (i.e. perimeter of the grocery store), etc. I am actually quite knowledgable about dietary science. I’m just trying to hit that sweet spot of burning fat. I’ve got the exercise down (boot camp). I’m just trying to get back into my groove of eating 6 small meals while getting in all of my nutrition and staying around 1250 calories. Frustrated about figuring out what to eat when, distributing my proteins, shoving the veg to the end of the day given my work schedule, trying to keep in my dairy without including too much sugar (lactose), trying to keep my blood sugar level, etc.
