Over a 12 month period I lost 15kgs just by eating healthy (30 minute walks 3x week).
I have now started to gain the weight back and im trying to get back into a similar eating routine than before - however I start off OK but I tend to snack on chocolates / chips / ice cream / cruskits loaded with butter etc.
Nothing is filling me up ....not even the healthy meals.
I'm quite picky with food. I hate seafood/ cauliflower/ pork/ raspberries BUT im a big coffee drinker (about 4/5 cups a day). I love water and drink lots of.
Can anyone share their meal plans with me to help me gather a better eating plan?...
I'm interested to know if smoothies are a good fulfilling meal/snack?

Hello and good in you for the weight loss, congrats.
I've just lost 19kg.
How I did it.....
20min treadmill everyday
Toast with honey for breakfast (wholemeal) with a coffee
I'll have another coffee before lunch, might have fruit
Lunch is vita weets with avocado, cheese, and salmon, maybe tomatoes some days
Another coffee in the afternoon
And the family meal for dinner.
I also swap lunch with a chicken Caesar salad, or chicken with plain salad.
I'm a bit of a lazy cook for lunch time.
I've been told protein is good and filling.
I basically avoid sugar and carbs.

Thank you Nafsika
Today Is official start day. All the other days I tried but failed.
For breakfast I had
x2 medium apples
x1 skim coffee
x3 lightly buttered 'light' cruskits.
I still felt hungry so I drank some water to take the hunger away.
25 minutes on treadmill
x3 fried eggs (fry pan lightly sprayed with spray oil)
x1 skim coffee.
Hopefully the rest of the day is just as good.

Good luck. Apples open up your appetite. I stay well away from them if I can. They just make my tummy rumble.
I "fry" my eggs if I need too, usually have scambled. I have the flavour stone so I don't put oil in it at all.
I just pigged out on a bowl of rice. Not a great choice. Ha ha, I'll have some fruit now and a cup coffee. I'm sure I'll be hungry because it wasn't healthy.

A 'usual' day for me when I'm hearing healthy, and counting calories, I started yesterday again, and very much like you, lost 10kg in 3 months just by eating healthy and watching portions and walking 3-5km every other day. Then last year put it back on again, due to a family tragedy. Anyway, as I was saying, a usual day for me looks like this:
B - coffee, porridge w. honey
M/T - 100-150g yoghurt with berries or a 'seed' sprinkle
L - ham and salad wrap
A/T - rice crackers or an apple w. A handful of cashews
D - usually a Michelle Bridges dinner from her cook book, or a favourite at the moment is roasted sweet potato, spinach, and cucumber salad w. Stir fried beef / chicken Greek yogurt dressing.
And 8-10 glasses of water. Yoga once a week and boxing twice a week.

Oh and I allow myself a 'cheat meal' once a week, usually on Friday night.

The best way I ever lost weight was made sure i had a big breakfast. So two eggs, a piece of toast, some mushrooms, etc.
Especially on active days. It kept me fuller for longer and stopped me snacking.
So my day would look like this:
Breakfast - two poached/boiled eggs, a piece of grain toast, some cheese and hummus and mushroom if i had some in the house.
Lunch - Maybe leftovers from the night before, so probably a small portion of pasta or meat/veg, etc.
Dinner - something light like soup or again, small piece of meat and veggies if i was cooking for the boys.
Usually dinner will include veggies or salad, no matter what i'm making.

Eat protein first and at every meal. It fill you and keep full longer.
Every time you feel like a snack drink a glass of water. If you still hungry 1/2 hour later than have a snack. Often we are actually thirsty not hungry.
Drink drink drink. Seriously drinking lots of water will help the weight loss.
Don't deny yourself anything. If you want to eat chocolate than allow your self a small portion on a set day or one or two days a week. Denying food guarantees that you lose the plot and binge at some stage.
