Looking for recipes

Looking for recipes that are low to very low calorie, filling and full of volume, made with whole foods and whole ingredients, gluten and grain free, and lower carb if possible. Thank you so much! I love really spicy stuff too.

Eggy Worries! How many can I eat?

How many eggs can I eat? I'm a vegetarian on the South Beach diet. I'm healthy and have never had issues with cholesterol. What I'm wondering is, how many eggs is a reasonable number to eat? I've been doing at least one a day, often two. Is that too many? Does the vegetarianism mitigate it? I really love eggs. But I do want my blood to continue to be able to fit through my veins...help me!

Easy protein-based options for camping food?

Next month I'm going on a two-week camping trip in New Zealand with Flying Kiwi, a tour company I've used before and enjoyed. My main gripe last time was the food: carbs, carbs, carbs all day long! Cereal and toast for breakfast, sandwiches for lunch, and pasta and rice-based dinners most nights along with some beer and cider. I'm looking for easy protein-based alternatives that I can stash in my stuff and turn to whenever I need a break from the carb onslaught. [more inside]

If I haven't been getting enough zinc, are there other problems I should watch for?

If I've been lacking zinc in my diet, what else might I have been missing? I recently started taking zinc supplements, and within two days my erectile issues are gone (I'm a youngish guy, so it's a real relief). I thought I ate a balanced, healthy diet, so I'm surprised that I must have been lacking zinc. I am a vegetarian. If I was lacking zinc, are there other things I may have overlooked? Are there lifestyle/dietary choices that are associated with lack of zinc? [more inside]

What to eat?

I'm eating a certain number of calories per day and using My Fitness Pal to track my food. If, for example, I have most of my day's menu planned but have a certain number of calories, fat grams, protein grams, and carb grams I need to eat to meet my daily targets, is there a website that will tell me which foods fit those criteria? Like a calorie database in reverse, I guess. Does that exist?

What exactly is the Transformation Super Challenge?

What exactly is the Transformation Super Challenge? Chris Krueger has some interesting YouTube videos that claim to have a diet/exercise program that can work for anyone. However, the only way to find out about the program is to shell out $55 via his web site. In searching for any reviews of the program, I noticed that every link seems to go to a web page that he runs/owns. I can't find one single review that is not sponsored by Chris Krueger. Has anyone used this program, or can at least give a thumbnail sketch as to what it entails?

Should I moderate my sweet tooth?

About 1/ week, I have a major sugar binge. It's always candy and never cake or other sweets. I usually end up eating more than a couple servings of candy in these binges. Now, I am a healthy weight, and my diet in every other way is balanced and healthy for the most part. I am wondering how bad of a health impact these sugar binges can have? Especially in the long term. I am in my mid-20's.
