My name is Jannylynn and am 63 years young. I am new to this forum. I am a very frustrated person. Was on a program that I did very well on but had a hard time keeping my fat and carbs at 30% and protein at 40%. Was advised to exercise 300 minutes/week with 90 minutes geared toward resistance training/weights. Lost the weight but now it is steadily returning. I am at the wits end and starting to think I am supposed to be heavy. YoYo dieting all my life.. enough is enough. hope this works.

Hello I am 39 and looking forward to entering the next decade of my life and I want to celebrate it by being my healthiest on my birthday. I weigh 178 at 5'6 and I am feeling sluggish. I work a fast paced sedentary job that makes it difficult to perform normal human functions like eating. With all of the resources out there I am struggling between the type of diet that will produce results and work with my schedule; high protein/no carb, high protein/low carb, high fat/low carb. I just feel these diets are to the extreme; isn't there a happy medium for busy people? I have tried many diets with no success; I am sure they work but they don't fit my life right now.
When thinking calories or macros what is more important, the amount of calories in or the quality of the source of calories?
