Basic clean eating
No/low carb
What is your preference?

A largely vegetarian diet (which include dairy and eggs) and ESE twice a week. I tried to eat whole foods (not processed and minimal cooking, e.g. no sauces) especially my fruits and vegetables. At each meal or snack I made sure there was at least one serving of fruits and vegetables.
Minimal liquid calories - no soda pop, no juices, limit alcohol (hard to me when traveling or socializing), limited milk
So breakfast - high fibre cereal, berries and a grapefruit
Snack - cottage cheese and an apple
Lunch - Big bowl salad
Snack - nuts and dried fruit
Supper - Varied based upon my wife but vegetable based often with chopped up raw veggies.
Usually no evening snack.

Helps me to win third place in category in the last contest.
