Re: my diet now

How long were you envisioning keeping up that routine? What kind of bread on the sandwiches?

As written, there are no (that is, zero) vegetables in your plan. Personally, I'm not a big fan of cereals; in my view it is just over processed junk, even if they do start with whole grains. And, if the cheese is your standard, grocery store variety, it looks like there are virtually no good fats in your plan.

So, depending on how much turkey you get (and is it deli variety with stuff added?), you are probably meeting your meat quota and your fruit quota (as part of the vegetable/fruit quota) (the choice of grapes is questionable, but hopefully they are purple or at least red so you are getting some antioxidants) and possibly the dairy quota (hopefully its a decent quality cheese).

Re: my diet now

The diet as described is a disaster. You need fresh vegetables, low glycemic fresh fruit, you now get none. Your choice of meat (turkey can be ok but I suspect it is a processed deli variety and that is less than optimal) needs to include more variety. The cereal and bread are empty calories that supply little more than sugar and if fact if you are the one out of two that react to gluten might be unhealthful.
