Great advice above. One of the best things I did was to stop drinking my calories. I would drink 3 or 4 Cokes a day. Just eliminating those and switching to water saved me over 400 calories daily. Now I don't miss them. I also restrict my simple carbohydrates like processed foods, white bread, sugar and juice.

Stir frying vegetables with a little soy sauce or salsa is a quick alternative to stopping for Subway. There is another active post about Healthy Lunches that has a great idea for a taco salad. Since you are vegetarian just add black beans instead of the meat for a quick and easy meal.
