Good for you with the carrot sticks and bananas. And like I said - canned veggies are better than NO veggies. If you are setting a timer to eat, you can try eating about 6 times/day - 3 small meals/3 snacks, so that would be every couple of hours. Do make sure you get some type of meats - chicken, turkey, fish, canned tuna packed in water, etc for protein and also try to get at least 3 servings of dairy each day. The dairy can include low fat/fat free milk, yogurt, cheeses, etc.
