You should try the "meal plan" option under the food tracker. It gives you suggested meals for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and Snacks based on your current weight and goals and gives you the option to switch things out that you may not like. Might be a good place to start.
If you use your Nutrition Tracker (I strongly recommend that you do), you can have it set for meal plans - that will tell you what and how much. By using the Nutrition Tracker you will be able to see where you need to alter your nutrition by clicking on "See today's full report". There are two pie charts - one with the recommended daily % of fats/carbs/protein and the other with what you consumed. You will be able to use that to adjust your diet accordingly. Your Nutrition Tracker will give you the calorie range best for you. Make sure that you have entered accurately the amount of planned exercise, because this makes a difference to the calorie range.
A lot of us don't use the Meal Planner - I have what I want, so enter it in manually.
Make sure that you get plenty of fruit and veges, and quality protein (not from processed meats etc.) Increasing water consumption helps with weight-loss - there are no calories or additives.
Good luck, Kris
