10 Satisfying Workout Lunches That Are Under 500 Calories

I plan my entire day around eating. I think about what I want for lunch as I finish my breakfast. I have two interests – eating and complaining about getting fat because of what I am eating. My taste buds are the biggest j3rk$ I know and do not welcome food with low calories. All the coconut based Thai curry is going straight to my thighs and yet I have no self-control whatsoever. They say “You are what you eat”. Well, looks like I have eaten a really big person!

I started working out recently so that I could cut down some weight (read so that I could eat some more). I really want to make this work, so I have read about (surprise, surprise!) lunches that contain less than 500 calories and are rich in protein. And as obsessed as I am with food, believe me, these lunches will not only keep you fit, but will also satisfy your taste buds.

Check out 10 of the most satisfying yummies with their nutritional count. These are super easy to make, saving your time and energy. Share more in the comments section!
