If you gain weight fast then your metabolism is really shot. Start the morning with a lean protein like turkey or chicken. Egg whites are also great but naturally have a little more salt than other lean proteins. Not so much to stunt your progress, but be sure to drink plenty of water to avoid retention.
Along side your protein have either a grapefruit or some greens. If it suits you more try having the egg whites with some oatmeal. NO sugar or butter, artificial sweetener (go easy), cinnamon, nutmeg and your set. The more healthy tweaks you put on these the better and faster your results will be.
Your before lunch and before dinner snacks (2 hours before at least) should also have a lean protein and try to have a light carb. If you want to really go for the goal on these between meals replace that carb with greens (ie collards, spinach). This provides a little extra fiber without the sugar conversions, because you want to eat and lose weight now.
For lunch and dinner try and incorporate another protein like tuna (if it's canned watch the sodium content) or another fish. Also for lunch and dinner you will try to add in a simple carb like an apple or banana, rice, sweet potatoes or even a baked potato alongside your veggies and protein. Skip the butter and sour cream. Try using something more natural like salsa. Homemade is the best because you can control how much exactly goes in it.
Taking your time out to attempt and eat in this fashion will get you going in the right direction, and to completely flip the script on that gut. Learn to eat and lose weight and you can expect to never be hungry or overweight again.
