Want an extra meal that doesn't really "count"
Here is what you do:
Get a knife and fork (or a spork if you have one) and take it to the bathroom with you, then whatever you eat you've already eaten so you need not count it on your wallplanner, and the girls at the diet club need never know!
You sound like the voice of experience. I knew you Brits ate some pretty nasty ****, but I never figured it was literal.

But you'll probably die of high blood pressure from the salt intake.

Eat LOTS fresh vegetables. Sorry, it has to happen. Preferably raw. Peppers (red or green), carrots, tomatoes (though not technically a vegetable... these are okay to eat processed b/c of lycopene stuff and whatever else), and even broccoli or peas (they're nasty-tasting uncooked but them's the breaks...). Also, steaming vegetables leaches nutrients out, so if you're a ***** and must cook your veggies, sauté them with grapeseed oil and garlic instead, maybe with a little steaming at the end (they taste really good this way and still keep a majority of the benefits). It's okay in soups, though, because you eat the broth in which the good stuff is now dissolved, so you get the nutrients, just not from the vegetable itself.
Your diet seems okay other than that. If you're looking to add calories, you could drink more milk or something. Or just eat more per meal, because 5 a day is probably enough.
Sardines arent that salty. Are you thinking of anchovies?

cottage cheese, apple sauce + little bit of honey.
CNagy, I know you hate veggies, but... you can't go wrong with micronuked brocolli, tofu and/or lean turkey "ham" (Publix has a nice one with moderate sodium), and egg whites. A protein shake can do the trick - I'd recommend either "Extreme Body RTD 50" by America BodyBuilding (ABB), "Micell Edge RTD 50" by Iron-Tek or Syntha-6 by BSN mixed with soy milk. Another good shake is Isopure by Nature Best, but some people, the taste is not as good as the other options just mentioned.
-- EDIT --
I'd avoid a large quantity of fruits at night. Lots of sugars or carbs a few hours before going zzzzz == bad juju.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
Cottege cheese is good, low fat, and high protien. But I would not mix anything in with it. I'd rather have a couple slices of ham with it (sandwich meat, very low fat and high protien).
