If you can get to a library, check out the SugarBusters! weight loss book. It helped me to better understand what we should eat and why. Oats, beans, lentils, veggies and fruit (bought on sale) can help you stay healthy and lose weight. If you can find peanuts or other nuts on sale, eat those as well. Meats can be prepared in a crockpot and a chicken can be used for several meals. Always try to start your lunch or dinner with a hearty vegetable soup or a salad spritzed with lemon juice or olive oil.
You will eat less and it helps with your sugar levels. Plan ahead and always carry a piece of fruit or a few nuts with you in case you get hungry. Canned tuna is very good with a whole grain cracker or slice of bread. But, do try to limit your whole grains to one meal a day. An example might be to have oatmeal for breakfast with a little milk on it, and berries if you can afford them. A few nuts or a piece of fruit midmorning.
