    I've been losing weight now that I'm eating much more healthy and running a few times a week, but I'm somewhat concerned that I will become unhealthy for eating too little calories and losing weight too fast perhaps....

    I lost about 7-8 lbs in 2-3 weeks, but then this weekend I had some relationship issues and lost my appetite for the whole weekend and lost ~5lbs just over those few days. Regardless, here is a typical day of meals for me.

    Breakfast:
    Medium Sized Bowl of Raisin Bran/Special K/Cinnamon Life (when I wanna cheat)

    Lunch:
    Chicken Breast
    Side Salad with Italian dressing
    Big Iced Tea with sweet-n-low
    Raw Cauliflower
    Small serving of watermelon

    Dinner:
    Usually just eat whatever, not major healthy foods but not terrible things...
    Such as: Pasta with marinara or greek salad or whatever

    You could try to break it up into 5 meals instead of three.

    Breakfest
    Cereal

    Snack
    Raw Caulifower & Water

    Lunch
    Chicken
    Salad
    Tea

    Snack
    Watermellon

    Dinner
    whatever healthyish

    I do actually eat the cauliflower as a snack since I usually get hungry before lunch or a clementine or something.

    My diet before was pretty shitty. I would eat sugary cereal every morning, local fast food places for lunch, and then dinner was just whatever, and sometimes ice cream at night.

    I think the big problem were lunches before, especially since I would have so many calories during the day and then sit in my office for 9 hours. Ice Cream before bed probably not a good choice either.

    The chicken alone has like 70% of daily protein in a 2000 calorie diet...plus whatever I have at dinner and whats in the cereal....right? still not enough?

    You dont necessarily have to eat meals. My "meals" usually consist of a scoop of protein powder in water, or a slice of bread with some tuna and mustard, or a couple eggs, just eating whenever my stomach tells me to eat, then I just put something in it so it will leave me alone.

    the FDA's guidelines are for completely sedentary individuals, if you do any cardio/weight lifting, I'd ramp it up a bit.
