How about foods like Avocado, or EVOO?

I don't know what you mean by "real fat", but fat is an essential (they're called essential fatty acids for a reason) and necessary part of a healthy diet. Also, without the additional calories from fat, you're likely not eating enough.

You need to understand that you don't lose weight by depriving your body of food or forcing yourself to exercise to a caloric deficit. You can't punish your body into losing weight. You lose weight by eating nutritionally beneficial foods, working with your body to help it heal and shed all the taxing, unnecessary pounds.

Maybe try adding some healthy carbs (sweet potatoes, pumpkin, butternut squash, fruits) and healthy fats (1-2 tbsp of oil, or 1/2 to 1 avocado per meal) for a week. Then you can cut back on the carbs, keeping the fats. Hopefully that'll help you overcome the plateau.

Swapped some Enoki mushrooms for noodles in this chicken soup! Inspired by the Udon Miso soup at Day 5 Sushi.

Don't buy them for $5-6 from the expensive kosher supermarkets- you can get them for $1 from the Chinese food stores (down on 8th ave, 53rd st in BP)

I was appalled when Mehadrin recently introduced their chocolate covered yogurt bar and marketed it as a "healthy" on the go breakfast item! I mean who would buy that crap? Literally and figuratively, I mean...
