Welcome to MDA! It sounds as though you are transitioning from sugar burner to fat burner as has been mentioned already. It is best to be really strict for the first while (at least 21 days) until your body has settled into fat burning mode. Going back and forth to grains is not going to help you at all. For lunch I try to do leftovers, or some kind of breakfast type thing too. You can make big batches of things like egg/veggie muffins or meat muffins (like mini meatloaves) and freeze them. Really quick and easy and loaded with good stuff. I find it is important to have enough veggies with the fat and protein as they also help to control cravings. A lot of times too little fat results in cravings too. If you like butter a dab of that works well as a little snack that can tide you over if hungry. Once you are done transitioning to fat burning mode you will find yourself a lot more energetic and able to skip meals a lot more easily than before. If you need more carbs you need to find ways to increase your intake with starchy veggies and some fruit too. Milk (I only recommend raw milk) is a very good supplement if you are working out a lot ... and if you don't have problems with it of course.... Just a few thoughts. Hang in there and keep on going. The first few weeks can be tough... but soooooo worth it!
