    If you detail the nature of your difficulties, we will be more able to help. Many new people struggle because they chose a weekly weight loss goal that was too aggressive.


    For recipes, the Joy of Cooking cannot be beat, IMHO. My library system carries it, and perhaps yours does as well.

    Meanwhile, check out https://www.allrecipes.com and do read the reviews before trying anything. I look for trends in the reviews. They often have helpful tips like cook time too long/short, pan too small, bland, etc.

    I like Ethan Chlebowski's cooking channel on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/@EthanChlebowski

    He has lots of cooking science videos, which I find interesting and entertaining. You might like a video like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hapjShCi254&ab_channel=EthanChlebowski plus his recipe videos.

    Skinny Taste and Cooking Light are favorite sites of mine.
