    There are no "magic" foods for me, but here are three staples recently:
    - Canned sardines (reach my daily protein goals and get some Omega-3s)
    - Kirkland protein bars (protein and fiber)
    - Greek yogurt

    Chicken breast
    Diet soda
    Protein bars

    Super fast protein and meals when needed. Can't do without that diet coke either. Man, I try cutting it and I want to binge all day.

    I can't narrow it to 3! The things I buy most often that help me feel full and stay within my calorie goal and/or treats I must have on hand:
    1. Fage 2% Greek yogurt (plain + add honey and cinnamon)
    2. Eggs
    3. Apples
    4. Bananas
    5. Protein bars (Luna, Cliff, Larabar)
    6. Coffee
    7. Dark chocolate (must have everyday!)
    8. Beer
    9. Wine

    I tend to eat mostly:
    Breakfast:
    oatmeal (with unsweetened almond milk and frozen fruit)
    eggs (many different ways so as not to get bored - and I stopped putting cheese in them because I don't taste it enough to be worth the calories)
    Lunch:
    lettuce (for salads, wrap for meats, etc)
    tuna
    low sodium turkey deli (wrapped in lettuce)
    Dinner:
    chicken
    beef (once a week)
    stir fry
    Snacks:
    bananas
    apples
    laughing cow cheese
    Skinny Pop popcorn
    Sides/Condiments:
    avocado
    rye bread
    pickles
    Liquid:
    water (will sometimes put lime, fresh ginger or a dash of POM juice)
    wine

    This isn't ALL I eat, but I do eat more of this than anything probably.

    Top three
    1. Veggies (all kinds)
    2. Fruits (whatever is in season)
    3. eggs

    Keeping my fridge well stocked of these three categories is my recipe for weightloss success

    Flat bread wraps (90 cal/9 grams fiber!)
    Avacado
    Tuna
    White onion (adds flavor to anything so I don't need condiments haha)
    Pinto Beans (fiber, fiber, did I mention fiber? )

    Always chocolate of some sort. I should really give that up. My ezcema would thank me.
