Perhaps it might help if you tinkered with the recipe-builder here. No one knows what you like for food and such and it might be easier if you did it that way on your own.

You could build your own recipe, and then adjust the servings total to get the 200+- calories youre looking for that way too!

Good luck!

Breakfast ideas:

2 pcs lite toast 70 calories
2 tbs pineapple cream cheese 70 calories
hot tea with sweetener

instant oatmeal with sweetener 100-160 calories
hot tea

sorry....that's all I got!! LOL

I like chicken stir fry...and REAL easy way is taking a 3 or 4 oz boneless skinless chicken breast, cook and cut it up. Get Green Giant boxed veggies..I got the Taryaki mixed veggies and for the whole box is only 90 cals and includes the sauce the veggies cook in. Mix veggies and chicken..dinner! Around 200 cals and filling!

Why? How many "meals" are you eating? Even 5 at 200 only adds up to 1000 calories a day.

There are lots of frozen meals that come up under or close to 200 calories.... soups are great and are a good way of keeping your fluids up.... salads are always good, tuna salad on toast, chicken salad in a bowl with celery on the side? cereal is fantastic, often low calorie, lots of fibre and its filling.....

I hope when you say that you are keeping to 200 calorie meals, that you are still eating healthy, and eating 5-6 200 calorie meals a day...... it's true less calories in means more weight off... but only if your body feels safe and doesn't go into starvation mode in order to protect itself.... we didn't get into this mess overnight... and we need to give ourselves time to get out of it....

Good luck :)Image not displayed

If eating 5 meals a day helps you stay under your calorie goal (which probably should be MORE than 1200, and definitely not below it) then go for it. But the idea that eating more often increases your metabolism is a myth....

I make a veggie wrap and it's only about 150 calories. I use the LaTortilla tortilla (80 calories) and spread 2tbls of fat free cream cheese on it (30 calories) and load it up with sliced cucumber, tons of sprouts and mushrooms. Fills me up and super delish. Use any veggies you want happy

200 is barely a snack, not a meal

Too bad there isn't room for a miniature slice of bacon.

I usually eat my most calories for dinner but try to stay low on breakfast and lunch. For breakfast I normally Have kashi Cereal which has alot of fiber and makes me feel full. Lunch I usually have yogurt with a half cup of strawberries inside. If I get hungry between meals I usually grab and apple and cut it up into small pieces (which makes me feel like I'm snacking more) or I grab Whole grain Goldfish.

Yeah, this too.

Guessing you're on 1,200? It get's hard doesn't it.

For breakfast I have oats made with water and half a cup of blueberries - got this off of a friend on here and you don't feel deprived as the blueberries have plenty of flavour. Or I'll have two medium boiled eggs, or 150g Total 0% fat greek yoghurt with a teaspoon of honey stirred in.

Lunch is pretty much the same daily, but is 3 servings of salad veggies and a chicken breast or some tuna or ham.

Dinner I can't help you too much with as I have most of my cals then but I'd be going with stir frys, prawns will come in lower than chicken or you could try a small jacket potato?

Oven Roasted Vegetables and Chicken

Using any combination bell pepper, onions, eggplant, zucchini, squash, broccoli, etc. chop vegetables into medium sized strips. Drizzle one tablespoon olive oil on cookie sheet. Season with salt, pepper, and rosemary or basil (or whatever your favorite seasonings happen to be!). Place vegetables on sheet and turn with spatula to coat with seasonings and oil. Place two chicken tenderloins (total 4 oz) on sheet and coat as well. Bake in 400 degree oven for about 30 minutes.....maybe a bit less if your vegetables and/or chicken are cut in narrow strips (they may burn if left too long). Serve over brown rice. You may also add some tiny potatoes to your pan and omit the rice. This is very good and I make it often. Even my kids will eat it!

*The protein portion could be beef or fish. Adjust cooking time accordingly.
** Serves 1, increase amount of vegetables and chicken to serve more people or to have leftovers.
