Recently, I've gained 5 pounds and can't shed it. My eating habits & exercise (~30 minutes per day, 5 days a week, varied exercises) have not changed at all, but I think I need to start cutting back. I'm a very monotonous person (and don't like many foods), so each day, here is my basic food diet: Morning: Dannon Light & Fit Yogurt, chocolate chip muffin (I make them myself, approx 200 calories), banana Lunch: Salad (lettuce, carrots, about 1-2 small chicken tenderloins (baked or grilled), very small amount of fat free ranch dressing) Afternoon snacks: Tootsie pop, 6 Hershey hugs, approx 100 calories of pretzels, 1 apple, 1 additional fruit (peach, strawberries, watermelon -- though w/ watermelon, I likely have 2 servings). Dinner: Option1 - 4-5 days per week: 4 ritz crackers, peanut butter (probably 2 servings [4 tbsp] of peanut butter...); handful of grapes Option2 - 2-3 days per week: 2 small chicken tenderloins (baked or grilled) with ketchup, grilled 5-6 asparagus stalks I also only drink water...and white wine if I am out for drinks with friends, but I've decided I will only get 1 glass from now on (used to be 2). Is there anything I should cut? It's a lot of carbs, but some of that is fruit (banana, apple, grapes, watermelon, peach). I know the muffin is one thing I can eliminate, and also cut down on the amount of peanut butter that I have on a given day. Also, are there any foods I should substitute? Some of other healthier foods I like: oatmeal, egg whites, most fruits, granola bars, fish. Thanks so much!
