First you need to clean your cupboard! Get rid of all fast food, high sugar, unhealthy products you have and replace them with a healthier alternative. How would you know what is healthy? Just read the labels on the products! To help you make a list of new foods for your diet, here is a diet plan!
2 slices of wholewheat or rye bread (you can make your own flat bread using quinoa seeds if you are on keto, see my recipes )
2 eggs (make an omelette, or scrambled eggs, or dip the bread into the eggs and make french toast)
1 tablespoon coconut butter or olive oil, the choice is yours
1 cup Greek yogurt (low fat or full fat if you are on keto)
1 cup of berries (no berries on keto)
Two pieces of chicken breast (grilled) or 2 cups lentil soup
2 cups mixed greens
1 cup cucumber
mix the greens with the cucumber into a salad with
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
2 pieces cooked cod or salmon
half a cup shredded cabbage

2 small whole wheat tortillas
If you like to snack:
1 banana (not if you are on keto)
1 cup low fat kefir
1 tablespoon chopped walnuts
