I would think the best place for you too start would be to use the food tracker-in the beginning just track ALL you eat-then you can see where you are lacking i.e. Protein, etc. Then you can see where the changes are needed. Good luck, this really is a wonderful site.

Do Not Expect Perfection, and Do Not Sit in Silence
To eat is a necessity. To eat intelligently is an art.
PEACE- it does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still BE CALM IN YOUR HEART. (unknown)
Life begins at the edge of your comfort zone.

Hi. I am a 54 year old female living in NC (Charlotte area). I have been going to the gym with a personal trainer for almost a year. While I have lost inches, I have not lost weight. After being gone for about 6 weeks, I am back at the gym with a new trainer who suggested I join this site. I have failed at every diet except Atkins, which was unsustainable. I have set my goal at losing 50 pounds over 8 months. I am not optimistic. I am not home for dinner at least three nights a week and my trainer says I don't eat enough (and no where near enough protein). I am hoping for suggestions and ideas on how to achieve my goal.
