South Beach Phase 1, help me eat better?

I am currently on the South Beach diet (Phase 1, one week into it, please do not reply if you are going to criticize). I am not following their meal plans because they are overly complicated and in many cases require ingredients that I can't get here in this small town. If you've got very simple filling recipes that would qualify for Phase 1 and 2 (please specify which), I would really appreciate hearing them! [more inside]

What time should I eat breakfast?

"Breakfast is the most important meal of the day." "Breakfast improves your metabolism." "Breakfast makes you work, think and feel better." Okay, fine, you've convinced me to eat breakfast. But what time, smart guy? If I wake up at 6:00 AM and eat my first meal at 2:00 PM, that's still technically breakfast, but I'm pretty sure that's not what people are talking about. So, for optimal health benefits, how long after waking up should I eat?

22 year old vegetarian convert needs help

I’ve been pondering becoming a vegetarian for quite sometime. This is more or less for ethical reasons but I suppose converting may also have an added health benefit. I’m in college and my diet is horrible. At 6 foot 180 pounds I’m not over weight, but I’m most certainly not very healthy with this type of diet. My current diet consists of mostly processed foods like hotdogs, chicken patties with fast food thrown into the mix 1-2 times a week. I’m ready for a change though and I’m looking for suggestions.

Low cal, low fat, low carb, high fiber, high protein foods?

One serving of lentils has only ~120 calories, 0 grams of fat, 10g of protein (20% of daily recommended amount), and 11g of fiber (44% of daily recommended amount). What are other superfoods with similarly high levels of protein and fiber, and low levels of carbs, fat, and calories?

Why eggs? Why now?

In my family we've always said that if you have an intense craving for a food that you don't normally eat, it's because your body really needs something in it (and that all efforts should be made to acquire said food-- this has led to some funny stories). Following this (seeming) logic, I am curious if any nutritionists understand why I get insanely intense cravings (only about once every 6 weeks or so) for egg salad sandwiches. Because, you see, eggs normally make me really nauseated. Scrambled especially (I basically can't eat them, for whatever reason). But when I need egg salad BAD, it's literally the only food that appeals to me in the entire world. (And it's ALWAYS egg salad-- I don't have too many other of these sudden cravings.) It doesn't even need to be good egg salad. It can even be warm (yuck). But nothing else seems to fill the need. Any idea what might be in it that my body is so sorely missing? This is perplexing, since I have the cravings again tonight.

My anti-yeast infection diet makes me sleepy

Food Log suggestions?

I'm looking for suggestions on where and how to keep a food log. I have a number of criteria that, I think will help me keep it up. 1. I'd like it to be online. 2. I'd like it to have some database of foods. 3. I'd like to it show trends, at least a weekly goal thingy. 4. I'd like to it to offer easy ways to update the log. 5. I'd pay for it. Free would be great, but ... I have a diet that I am already using that contains goals -- calories, carbs, protein, etc., -- all based on BMI and activity levels. A bonus question would be stories about how you managed to keep it up for yourself. :-)
