Here is a basic run down of how I eat:

- snack: almonds, walnuts, raisins

- lunch: salad with chicken or fish, apple

- snack: almonds, walnuts, or pistachios with raisins

- dinner: salad with steak, chicken or fish

- snack: almonds, walnuts, or pistachios with raisins

  Salads: The salad should be very diverse, get creative:

       - heart of romaine or spring mix, baby spinach, tomato (cherry for simplicity), canned black olives, avocado, pear, cucumber, broccoli, carrots,

         balsamic vinaigrette. I often add walnut or almonds. I may add raisins for a less seasonal and more available source of carbohydrates.

- large carrots

- salad dressing: one that is not super high calorie, non-milk based, and something you'll like to eat (or mix olive oil with blasamic for your own)

- walnuts, almonds, pistachios

- mixed greens

- broccoli

- raisins

- boneless, skinless chicken breast (frozen or fresh)

- tilapia fillets (frozen or fresh)
