Eat lean meats (chicken, turkey, white fish, salmon and lean beef), proportioned about the size of your fist.
Eat fiberous carbs (broccoli, cauliflower, lettuce, celery, asparagus, zucchini, carrots, etc.) proportioned about the size of two hands.
Eat good fats ( nuts, olive oils, cheeses and avocados) proportioned at about half a hand.
Eat 1 to 3 servings of fruit per day, if desired. In the morning and after working out are the best times to eat fruit.
Limit simple carbs to after strenuous workouts and on cheat meals (this includes date nights!). I or 2 cheat meals each week can include these items and keep you sane.
Protien, complex fiberous carbs, and good fats should be consumed at every meal. Eat 4 to 5 meals per day. Eat every 3 to 4 hours to keep your metabolism high and efficiently burning.
