Diet plan on a budget?
Is anyone else having issues following diet plans? Usually I'm pretty good w/breakfasts, but after that its hard to eat constantly on a schedule and knowing what to eat.The past week or so Ive been trying to follow the p90x nutrition plan.I'm good w/stocking up on whole wheat products,veggies, and fruits. But need to increase my protein intake. As a student, its just a time and schedule thing when preparing and cooking meals.
Basically I'm just trying to clean up my diet overall
So far oatmeal, whole grain cereals, yogurts, cottage cheese, etc
Various fruits like apples, pears, bananas, tangerines, etc
I do eat boiled egg whites, bu tthey recommend 6 a day. Someone would be buying a new carton ofeggs every couple days lol. I limit myself to 2-3 per morning instead.
For other proteins usually get it from sliced cold cuts or rotisserie chicken (no skin).
Whole wheatbreads, tortillas, pita breads, etc.
I'm just having issues with snacks for in between meals (for now usually low fat cheeses or fruit) and evening meals (I just stick to salads I either make myself or buy ready made ones at restaurants).
Eventually later on for cravings I plan to add in things like sugar free jello, pudding, fruit popsicles, etc
So any alternatives for increasing protein in take or adding/subtracting from my diet? Mainly my weakness that I hope to limit is white rice and just any sweet/sugar foods
