I am not following the nutrition guide, but I am following a pretty strict diet. I cut out all soda, white bread, potatoes, sweets, etc. I am also making sure my portion sizes are smaller than usual. I think I am doing pretty well with my own diet. A typical day is as follows:
Breakfast - Cup of light yogurt
Lunch - Whatever the cafeteria is serving, usually pretty good portion size
Snack - A mix of raisins, almonds, sunflower seeds, and pretzels
Supper - Usually centered around some type of meat with sides of some kind of vegetables
Usually I mix in my 8 cups of water and about 2 cups of milk per day.
Not really knowing what your lunch or dinner is really makes nailing down your diet difficult. But guesstimating you are probably under eating for doing a program like Insanity. You need to start keeping a calorie count for a few days to see what you are actually consuming so you can make adjustments. Your breakfast is horrible in the fact that its not near enough. You are going to run the risk of hitting the wall when you get to the second month of Insanity. The first month is a cake walk compared to the second.
The figures below are estimates of the number of calories you should eat every day in order to maintain your current weight or to reach your goal.

If you have a smart phone download myfitnesspal. It will help you keep a count of what you are consuming. Also may want to consider taking your lunch instead of the cafeteria so that you can have control on how many calories you are eating. If you want to see your abs you have to put the work in in the kitchen. It is all about eating whole/real foods and running a slight calorie deficit.
