    Dieting at the moment and i'm looking for some low calorie meal options.
    I'm getting a bit sick of the likes of egg whites, admirals pie, soup etc.
    Problem is i'm not a huge fan of vegetables so vegetarian stuff doesn't really do it for me.
    I'm thinking of things in the 300-500 calorie bracket. No more than 500!
    Don't say 350's too low for a dinner. I'm trying to do the little and often eating thing as I heard it works best.

    So basically wondering did anyone have any tasty suggestions?!

    chicken and vegetables. the mixed frozen veg i get is 35 cals per 100g and chicken is 109 cals per 100g.

    at the end of the day you are dieting. losing fat should be a far higher priority then taste.

    jacket potatoes? Surely she could think of something better than that. Potatoes have starch and thats about it

    You need to be having chiken and tuna like she said, not to much cheese though. Try wraps or something

    Low fat cheese? You need to have a portion of dairy in your diet anyway

    Depends on whether you want to be healthy or not... Pot Noodles are about 384 calories.
    You can make pasta with a pasta sauce for around/just under 500 if you like.
    You can buy Quorn type products which are usually much lower in calories than the equivalent meat product and also contains a lot of protein which is important for weight loss and also for making sure your hair/nails are kept in good condition. A Quorn 'chicken' burger for example is only 123 calories.
    Depending on how it's cooked fish can very low calorie and nutritious.
    On another unhealthy note supermarkets often sell little children's mini pizzas which are suprisingly low in calories, no more than 400.
