I am not sure if I am eating enough throughout the day, this is a basic outline of my diet...<br><br>
Breakfast - bowl of oatmeal made with soymilk and dried cranberries OR a whole wheat bagel and fruit. Always have a cup of coffee with fat free creamer in it, too.<br><br>
Lunch - a salad with dried fruits, nuts and cheese, OR avacado and tomato on it<br><br>
Dinner - a serving of bread or rice with cooked veggies... sometimes accompanied with cheese or beans if I am a little hungrier<br><br>
I always have a sweet treat after dinner later that night, too. Usually a smoothie or a gluten free peanut butter cookie.

What quantities of these foods are you eating? Do you feel full or do you feel hungry a lot? The foods in and of themselves look like healthy choices, but eating too much or too little of a healthy food is not healthy

I would track your calories and see what they come up to. All the foods you are eating are very easy to track. just make sure to know the correct serving amounts and use one of the sites to track. If you are eating large quantities you could be eating to many calories, but there are a lot of variables. Plugged my info into <a href="http://www.myfittness.com" target="_blank">www.myfittness.com</a> and it told me what my targets should be and I plug in all of the foods I eat.

I fill up kind of easily. I almost always make sure to finish my portions, even if I fill up before I finish the bagel or whatever. :p<br><br>
I do a lot of marching band and walking around school...

Hi veggietrumpet! From what marching band are you a member of? I am also a member of a drum and bugle corps here in our country. I'm glad to meet you then. Regarding your diet, seems like you are eating healthy foods plus you are doing good exercise.

What drum corp are you in? I am just in high school marching band right now, but I am looking into doing at least one season of drum corp when I get into college.
