New meal plan

So, I took all my favorite diets (body-for-life + fat smash + common sense), and came up with a new meal plan structure for myself.
The basic gist is -

• 1,300-1,500 calories per day
• 6 meals a day - averaging 200-300 calories each
• each meal consisting of - a protein and a carb
• 1 serving of dairy a day

Previously... I was still having a larger breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Now, all my meals are the same. My main meals (B, L, D) are more structured like a larger meal (like, a meat, a starch, a veggie) but the calories are the same as my more snack-like meals.

I'll be bringing this to Heather to get her take on it. But I think it looks pretty good! Need to go grocery shopping now. Man, eating healthy makes for expensive (and very often!) grocery trips!

I've been having some amazing fruits and veggies from the farm stand on my home though. Best cherries ever! And the leeks! OhhhHmmmmmMmmmMMm!

It is too large to post here, but if you'd like to see a scan of my meal plan, go here! - MEAL PLAN!

wow that's a great meal plan! How organized! What will you do when you go out though? combine two meals?

Good luck with your new meal plan. :) I always wish I could get myself to eat 5-6 small meals a day instead of the 2 (sometimes 3) big ones I eat.

Yeah Mack, if you see on Saturday, I combined the calories for lunch & snack together, to allow for 450 calories. Since I know 250 calories for a restaurant meal is near impossible!

i am jealous of your meal chart and organization. i need to start concentrating on smaller meals too. your menu looks like a great balance of what you're shooting for.
