    Most any reasonable meal can be fit in.

    Your primary consideration is total calories in vs. out. The meal may be higher in calories than other meals. If so, you can compensate by consuming lower calorie options other parts of the day.

    > is 15 minutes jogging four days a week is moderately ok for me to maintain my weight?

    Any exercise is better than no exercise. In general, a weight loss program would call for more exercise. Current physical activity guidelines for Americans is to aim for at least 2.5 hours of moderate activity per week, more for weight loss.
