    dinner: tuna and pasta, spaghetti bolognese, fish and rice. All home made.
    It sounds like you're not eating nearly enough, but it's hard to say more than that because you didn't include any reference to serving size. I do notice that you didn't list even one green vegetable. Do you really eat so few vegetables?

I also read that you should cut out the Carbs if you want to lose weight but carbs give you energy and i need energy to do my job properly?
    Some general questions to consider:
    1. How does your meal schedule compare to your work schedule?
    2. How do those schedules compare to your sleep schedule?
    3. What is your Basal Metabolism Rate?

    If you don't know the answers to those questions immediately, you've got some foundational work yet to do. Better food will not magically make you healthy; you need to eat better food at appropriate times and in appropriate amounts.

    How often do you drink water? Digesting food makes you slightly more dehydrated than you were before you ate, so you should consider how frequently you drink water in comparison to how often you eat (and how much you sweat).

    The only foods you should avoid when you want to lose weight are obviously non-nutritious things like cake, soda, and so on. Eating grilled chicken and brown rice is fine when you're looking to lose weight: how much you eat is the most important thing. What you eat does matter, don't get me wrong. Your old diet had you consuming quite a few calories just from soda, and you didn't get anything beneficial in the deal (e.g. protein, healthy fats, vitamins, minerals, et cetera).

    An important thing to note is that a good diet allows you to “cheat” on occasion. Plan in advance which meals will be off-diet and ensure that you don't binge. Adhering to your diet only 90% of the time won't completely derail your weight loss, and it's much better than feeling imprisoned by your diet.

    I already mentioned Precision Nutrition once in this thread, and I'm careful to avoid appearing to be a shill. It seems like you need to learn how to eat. What matters, why those things are important, and how to apply that to actually buying the right things in the grocery store. The only reason I know anything at all on these subjects is PN (and threads in this forum that linked to PN articles). That is just my own personal experience: what I want to get across to you is that you need some education. Maybe try asking your doctor to recommend a book, then checking it out from a library?

    I haven't got a clue some serious research is needed on my part.

    I haven't seen my doctor in years. I will take your advice and do some research the thing is there's just so much conflicting information on dieting its hard to know which one to belive, i suppose thats why its best to ask the doctor.

    Thanks for the advice

    Some good info on the thread already. I would recomend to anyone interested there is a free Iphone app that I used to track calories that is super easy and free. It's called Lose It, It really helped me get a handle on my nutrition, I wasn't really looking to lose weight but I had serious issues with portion control and eating correctly through out the day. I was taking in waaaaay to many carbs, and drank a **** ton of soda. Simple things that don't take a lot of effort to cut calories with out giving up on foods you are "addicted to" for coffee switch to skim instead of cream and splenda instead of sugar. It cuts like over 200 calories out of a cup of Dunkin Donuts coffee. I switched to those little crystal light packets with water instead of drinking a can of coke. Sometimes if your undisciplined taking little steps helps instead of making many huge alterations.

    Now I eat pretty much all local organic, I eat tons of fruit, veggies, as much good clean protein as I can, like grass fed beef and free range chicken and shop mostly at farmers markets instead of stores. Watch FoodInc and Fat Head documentaries on netflix and it will give you some good ideas I think.
