Default can someone help me compile a diet plan...

with what i have in the fridge. My mom really doesn't go shopping very much at all. one shopping visit can last up to three months sometimes.. and we're a family of 5. anyway i just need to know what i can do with what i have.

"healthy" stuff

PROTEIN

eggs
fish (enough for ONE serving)
boneless chicken (just have to find it...)
peanut butter (jifs chunky)
Ham (high in sodium though. like really high 800mg per slice)
meat balls

DAIRY-
Milk (ran out but she usually restocks)

CARBS-

Oatmeal
Whole grain bread (enough for a few days)
White Bread (same as above)
white tortillas
Honey Bunches and Oats
noodles for pasta (sauce too)

Vegetables-

Canned vegetables (green beans, string beans, corn, mixed)
Frozen Vegetables (collard greens, etc)
Lettuce Head

Fruits-
none.. just finished the last of the pineapples but she usually restocks on bananas occasionally.

yep so thats what i have. and i have NO money at this time so shopping isnt an option

Why do you want to diet? You are not overweight, in fact if you reach your goal you will be underweight.

Personally I would just eat per servings. Check out the guidelines of what you should et every day for your age and activity level and eat that. Measure stuff and that will hep at well. Also go for plenty of walks and stuff.

yeah i guess. I hate counting calories though. I usually become obsessed or i stress out a lot so im really trying not to do that anymore. but watching my servings is a good idea.

I didn't say anything about counting calories. I said portion contro. Read the labels, if it says 1/2 cup is a serving then only have 1/2 cup.

Pasta, fish, 2 serves veges, see if you can replace the pasta sauce with some thing not so high in cals. Low fat mayo or some such.
Failing that a quick chicken stirfry with some of the veges and I am sure you will find some soya sauce or something around to make it more interesting. Stuff it in a tortillia,or use with the wheat bread.
Most of all have fun,
Mary

Hey there! You have lots of good choices. Here's a rough guideline: Fix foods so that 1/4 of your plate is protein (fish, chicken), 1/4 of your plate is carbs (rice, pasta) and 1/2 is vegetables (corn, beans, salad etc.). That's for lunch and dinner. For breakfast, always have some protein, such as an egg or peanut butter, along with carbs like toast or oatmeal. Fruit would be good, too.

Jay

Oh, and P.S., limit how much butter you use on the corn, etc. A little goes a long way.
