Does anyone have like a diet plan on food ??

Spend some time checking out healthy cook books. I found it helpful to look at a variety of meals and then start building a grocery list based on its most used ingredients. I call these my staple foods... a lot of which have already been mentioned. Good luck on your goals ; )

Here's some Food Tips :)

Get rid of Sugar & Salt.  Chips, Chocolate Bars & Soda are a no go.
When you snack try to find things that have protein in them such as almonds, pistachios, sunflower seeds but try not to go over board on eating a lot of them.  Like I mentioned, protein bars and protein shakes.  I found that Almond Milk goes best with Vanilla Whey Protein.  Your Green Veggies are high in protein such as spinach, broccoli, asparagus.  Fruits that boost your metabolism are Raspberries & blueberries.  1 banana 2-3 times a week. Other things which are good to eat also are Lima Beans, Flaxseed, Kidney Beans, Soybeans, Brown Rice, Brown Pasta, Plain Oatmeal, Whole Grain Bread, Natural Peanut Butter. Potatoes and Yams, only 1 med one per day.  Mushrooms, Onions and Minced Garlic.  Extra Virgin Olive Oil.  Any meat that you eat make sure it's Lean. Meats are Lean Ground Beef, lean ground turkey, chicken breasts, turkey breasts, steak, tuna, egg whites or boiled eggs.  Yogurt, Low Fat Cottage Cheese.

Hope that helps :) Good Luck.

Salt is a natural flavor enhancer... making it healthy doesn't mean has to be bland. .. kosher salt is grainier and covers more surface than table salt so taste better and use less.
