6am Blueberry protein shake w skim milk
9am Pear/coffee
12pm lunch 2 tuna patties w salad
3pm apple
6pm chicken w some low carb bread.

I think you ate great! you had fruit, protien, good carbs and good fats!
I saw GREAT job!
How did you feel at the end of the day? If you didnt feel your best, try to change around your foods a bit.
I personally find that im a bit more energized if i have a slightly fatty food, like nuts or 1/2 pbutter sandwich....
Good Luck! and Great JOb

I think your menu looks good, too. However, I'm not sure if it would be so good if you ate it every day for a month. First, it could get boring, which could lead to snacks from a vending machine and other unhealthy deviations. And second, eating that much tuna could give you more mercury than you want. I'd just say mix it up a little - maybe turkey, ham, or egg salad for lunch sometimes? Tofu or pork sometimes instead of chicken for dinner?

agree with the above poster - need variety and I think the latest recs for mercury-ladden fish is as little as 1X per week. Though I'd read somewhere that fish is a great food for brain. Here is a list of 'safe' fish (low mercury) if you want to up your fish intake:

Summer Flounder
Wild Pacific Salmon
Croaker
Sardines
Haddock
Tilapia

You can substitute the fruit snacks too - oranges, clementines, strawberries, grapes, carrot sticks, celery w/ pb, cut-up peppers, zucchini/squash, etc. You don't want to get stuck in too much of a routine, because you'll get bored and cheat (most likely). Also, I wouldn't eat a protein bar every day. They're really made for athletes, and occasional-usage. You may want to substitute a big, leafy salad for the nightly chicken, which also gets boring, or some soups or thick stews. A crock pot might be your best friend, because you can leave it cooking all day when you're at class, and have a great dinner when you get home, and then take leftovers for lunch and/or dinner for the rest of the week!

Soup is also a great snack because it is very filling.
