I did that for several months and had great success but I was getting bored with it. I was eating the same thing each day that consisted of eggs, cheeses, salads and fish. I still need to lose 18 lbs. I found Simple Start by Weight Watchers. It is 2 week starter program where you follow the meal plan already provided for you by Weight Watchers. You can mix or match the meals that are already provided online for you.
