  • I love baby belle lite cheese. I think its 50 calories and meets 20% daily calcium requirments. Think nuts, fruit, hard boiled egg...sushi ..just keep it simple, salmon roll before running errands..keeps you fueled but not bogged down, even better if you order with brown rice.

  • String cheese is quick an easy. Eat a piece of fruit, apples, oranges, kiwi, a few strawberries. Try to stay away from bananas, or only eat half of one. I also like to eat a small portion of tuna fish (albacore in water). Mashed avocado with celery or carrot sticks, nuts and dried fruit (cranberries are good). I also agree with pp, hard boiled eggs are great, and very satisfying. Just mix it up, and don't make it boring or regular. You will loose more weight that way, and be able to stick to it.

  • Breakfast: 1 egg omelet, glass of vegetable juice; 1/4 cup high fiber cereal (1/2 the serving size indicated on the box), 1/4 c. lowfat or skim milk, 1/2 to 1 tsp. honey; 1/2 grapefruit, cantaloupe or honeydew melon with 1/2 c. cottage cheese.

    mid morning snack: celery ribs stuffed with cream cheese or peanut butter; hard boiled egg with a few whole grain high fiber crackers; 1/2 cup sugar free pudding; 1 to 2 pieces string cheese; sugar free jello with 1/4 c. cottage cheese; veggie sticks with dip; hummus with veggie sticks or whole grain high fiber crackers

    Lunch: huge chef salad loaded with veggies and 2 oz. lean meat (very filling yet relatively low in fat and calories)

    Mid afternoon snack: same choices as mid morning snack

    Dinner: 3 oz. (palm size) piece of lean meat (beef or chicken), 2 c. steamed veggies, tossed salad

    Dessert/evening snack: choose from same as other snacks

  • The idea behind the 6 small meals/snacks is to keep your body supplied with nutrients, not just carbs like candy/sweet treats/popcorn/rice cakes. If your body has a steady supply of nutrients and your tummy has some food, you're less likely to want to eat huge amounts of food at mealtimes.
