Your hubby should shove it, and be a little sensitive.
Eat breakfast. Here's my recommendation... This is what I do to stay slim (and I do have to work at it, but I'm very slim with this routine (5'8, 120 lbs):
Chia pudding for breakfast OR an egg omelet (2 whole eggs, a little cheese if you must, lots of greens, spinach tastes best in an omelet... don't forget onions. Broccoli is also good). As for the chia pudding, you can make coconut, chocolate, it's great. Recipes are all over the internet. Coffee is fine, with a LITTLE bit of cream or milk, and no sugar. ESPECIALLY not sweetener.
For lunch, I eat a salad every single day. You can do a mushroom, red pepper, romaine, ranch, onion type thing if you want salty, and a tomato, avocado, hemp heart, alfalfa sprouts, walnut, balsamic one for something a little sweeter. Easy on the dressing, no low-fat varieties because they mess up your metabolism, and screw with your appetite.
Dinner = lean protein and veggies, and that doesn't always mean meat. Aim for meat once or twice a week. The rest of the time go for beans+grains. Quinoa and black beans with a little salt and olive oil is pretty delicious.Throw some spinach in there, and you're getting most of the nutrients, and all of the amino acids you would in meat. Or even occasionally some tofu. Hemp seeds are good, fish, etc. and don't go too crazy with the extra-yummy vegetables. Haha by that I mean the tasty, starchy ones. Sweet potatoes are better than regular potatoes.
Snacks = a handful of nuts (unsalted, raw) and a piece of fruit. Apple and a tbsp. of almond butter is my favourite snack. Lots of water, another cup of coffee if you're feeling really hungry, tea is a good filler-upper too.
Try to do an hour of moderate cardio OR 45 mins of HIIT, and I'd do some strength training. Yoga or Pilates if you want to tone up, or a weight class a couple times a week if you want to rev up your metabolism.
I'm not an expert or anything, but I've struggled with my weight for years, and when I adopted this lifestyle, I got SKINNY! (And toned, in a good way). Finally! And after a few months of it, I honestly prefer a salad to any other kind of lunch. If I skip my salad, it's all I can think about until I eat one. (Don't be afraid to make your salad a family-sized one. I use a giant mixing bowl. :) It'll fill you up, and I don't think there's such thing as too many veggies. And the gym becomes addictive if you go 5-6 days a week.
GOOD LUCK with whatever method you decide to try! :)
