Looks like you are aiming for a lot of nutrient dense foods, which is good. Just make sure that amount of calories is enough to sustain yourself for that kind of intense workout.

the list looks good except for the lipton sides and the processed fake meat. Just be sure to use those sparingly. Good luck on your weight loss.

These items are high in sodium, which can make you retain water and slow your weight loss progress. Not to mention, the Lipton stuff is full of preservatives and refined stuff that won't leave you feeling very good or energetic if you plan to get active.

What would be some easy and cheap side dishes instead of the lipton rice and noddle packs ?

buy brown rice and make it in bulk, portion it out and then season it to suit the meal you are eating, also steamed veggies, roasted veggies, plain baked potatoes....

^^ Yep. The processed stuff is great from time to time when you don't have the time or energy to cook, but it's definitely not what you want to eat the majority of the time. Even if it's low calorie or something, that doesn't necessarily mean it's good for you. Keeping some cooked brown rice in the fridge is an excellent idea. One of my favorite easy meals is some steamed or stir fried veggies and beans or tofu over rice. Quick, easy, and I control the salt, fat, calories, etc.

even instant brown rice has the same nutritional value as long cooked rice, since it has been par boiled then dehydrated. Mix that with chunky salsa, some cumin and chili powder either as a side dish or as a stuffed pepper filling.

no it's not mushy, and you cook it for a few minutes, then let it sit in the pot for like 10 more minutes off the heat. It's not as chewy as reg brown rice, but definately not mushy. YOu use a 1:1 ratio of water and rice.

That is one of my staples, a red lentil bolognese. The only oil in it is at the beginning to fry the onions/garlic etc and it is not that much anyway. You can leave the cheese out. I always add a teaspoon of oregano to the herb mix, and have if on wholewheat pasta, or even brown rice.

i dont remember! are you eating enough calories? It doesn't sound like it. what's your day's worth of food look like? if you are truly hungry, then eat a small portion, and drink a glass of water. Are you getting enough fiber in your diet? that will help you stay fuller longer. Many times hunger is really thirst, which is why I suggested the glass. Make some hummus, and have some carrots or cucumbers with it.

My sister (who has always had more weight issues than I but now that I'm in my 50's I'm having trouble keeping my weight down) pointed out that regular green salads made with lettuce, no matter what else I put into them, won't always keep me feeling full (and therefore I tend to snack on junk food, which caused me to gain some weight this year). She recommended buying cabbages, both green and purple, and using that instead of lettuce as the base for salads. Cabbage makes you feel fuller. Make a coleslaw with the cabbages and it will keep for a week in the fridge. Season it as you would a regular green salad, with a low fat vinaigrette. Keep it in the fridge without seasoning it first and it will keep longer because it won't get soggy. Add julienned carrots and whatever else you want.

Some stores such as Trader Joe's actually sell bags of broccoli slaw which make it easier to make this type of salad.

I'd say not enough calories. You're not eating enough carbs, like dense veggies like potatoes or sweet potatoes, or grains, or any other variety of cooked vegetables. You didn't say if you're doing raw, I don't think, (did you?) How about broccoli, peas, edemame, corn, green beans, pasta/sauce...etc

The big salads you're eating aren't calorie heavy, unless you're adding salad dressings to them. 5 pounds is an awful lot to lose in one week, unless you've gone from like 6000 calories down to 1500. Do you make stews or chilis or pastas, or wraps. How about some bean burritos loaded with spinach and tomatoes and salsa?

Gingerfoxx is right. You will need to make it balance so your diet can support both losing weight and losing energy.

Dont worry too much about that. It is important your body isnt starving and is getting proper nutrition to build muscle.

does that mean 2 servings of 1 cup of brown rice each? Wasn't sure what your two servings were of, or if the 1 cup was both of the two servings? I would say you'd need more than a full cup of rice per day, (I only eat a half cup myself), but I'm not sure if you can blame a 2# weight gain on that.

Don't forget your weight can fluctuate with your cycle, hormone levels, food/fluid intake/output, and your bowel movements.
