food diary

Hello I've started today...
I really want to start planning meals, but do not know how.
I'm a vegetarian and do not like dinner.
Someone give me tips on how to build a diary? What to eat?

Have you read the Bulimia

Have you read the Bulimia Help Method handbook? If not, that is definitely the first place to start. It tells you everything you need. As far as building a structured eating plan, it is absolutely crucial to eat every three hours and get a balance of protein, fat, and carbohydrates in there every time. Dinner is important too. Some of my favorites are things like smoothies (frozen fruit, Greek yogurt, almond milk, spinach, peanut butter), eggs with cheese and veggies, carrots and hummus, a piece of fruit with peanut butter or cheese, or a wrap on a whole grain tortilla with lettuce, chicken (you'd have to use another protein source), tomato, and feta cheese. Nuts are also a great snack (and not bulky so if you're struggling with volume in your stomach, they're a good way to go). The point is to teach your body that it doesn't have to worry about being nourished, so you have to eat whether you're hungry or not every three hours. Slowly, over the next few months you will start to notice your hunger signals regularizing and helping you out a little. But in the meantime, just try and eat safe, balanced foods frequently. Hope that helps!
