    Man, I think I read this title differently than it was meant.

    I have to say, that everytime OP posts a reply or response to someones post, it gets a bit stranger..
    The more info he gives the less I understand what he wants..

    What are the junk foods that you used to eat before?
    I see that you are eating low fat turkey now, low fat dressing, low fat cheese, chicken breast. If you want to eat more calories but are having a hard time with eating the higher volumes of foods, then eat full fat, other cuts of meat. What happened to eating grains in your diet? If you are going the low carb route, then you should not be worrying about cutting fat as well. That is my two cents.
    And strength training is always a good idea. Cutting calories has helped you to lose weight. But if you want to build muscle you will have to fuel your body.
    I am only beginning on my journey of weight training, so I hope others can chime in and give you some more help on both a weight lifting program and the proper diet to fuel those efforts.

    Thank you for such a great answer. Much appreciated. Just out of interest, don't worry if you don't know, but say I ate 2200 calories and 100g of protein, or 1400 calories with 100g protein, would there be any difference in the way I hold onto muscle?

    Is it the calories which are important, or the protein?

    You are at a healthy weight, but not at your ideal body fat. You will not achieve the look you are after by eating at an aggressive calorie deficit regardless of the protein. You will have to incorporate strength training. And your calorie needs will have to be tailored to that. I don't really know more specifics than that.
    I suggest reading all the sticky notes at the top of the boards. Also head over to the groups section of the community and look for groups focused on getting strong.
    Good luck!

    Edited that I see some others have given you some helpful advice. You can do this. Don't get intimidated and good luck!

    Admittedly, I didn't read through the whole thread. Kg - I'll second and third those who have stated you need much more food. First of all, your BMI is 21.4 - which suggests to me that you do not need to lose any weight. If you decide to continue to lose weight, for your height and age, I think you should consider 1800-2000 as the bare minimum per day. However, to get the look you want, it probably makes sense to eat more and work on gaining muscle.

    I'm a bit concerned that you are eating so little and want to still lose weight. Sometimes with weight loss we lose sight of ourselves and run into trouble. If it is hard to eat more food and more types of foods, that is a sign that you may need a bit of help to improve your diet.
