Ok, so when I diet, I try to stay under 1200 calories and exercise at least an hour a day. The workouts you mentioned are great! I have Chalene's extreme, it's fantastic! I know you can't eat much IF but here is an EXAMPLE of a daily menu from my diet:
1 Serving of Oatmeal
1 cup Soy Milk
1 Serving of Egg whites (scrambled in microwave with some ginger for flavor)
1/2-1 cup of berries (you can trade these for some fruit you are ok with)
Snack at 9:45
1 cup of Grapes
Stonyfield Farms O'Soy yogurt
Lunch at 12 noon
Usually, 1 serving of Water Packed Pouch Tuna
Sweet Potato/Reg. Potato/Some Kind of Brothy soup
Snack at 2:30
1 Serving of Dry Roasted Edamame (or some kind of protein it could even be another serving of yogurt)
Very light supper as soon as I get home. Usually another serving of Oatmeal with some brown sugar
V8 Veggie Juice
It is very hard at first to get regulated on this schedule, but once you begin a routine, your stomach will coincide with your eating patterns.
You can also change the things that you eat. This is just an example of a typical day for me when I am dieting.
Keep very close amounts on your calorie intake. There are bunches of websites to help with this. www.nutritiondata.com is one of them. Remember, if you even steal a french fry from someone else's plate that's about 10 extra calories. So every bite you put in your mouth should be accounted for.
Also, try to eat as much fruit and vegetables as possible, they keep you full with out adding a bunch of calories.
Water is another critical part of dieting. I drink nothing but water or tea. NO POPS!!! (aka sodas) Not even diet sodas they just aren't good for you.
I hope this helps.
