I want to maintain my weight while gaining muscle and losing fat. Being 40+ years old I've noticed things have changed since I was in my 20s. Recently I found Michael Matthews "Muscle for Life" website and books. His recommendations and guidance dovetails nicely into FatSecret.

I'm not doing a low/high anything. It's too much work. I am going to find a balance of nutrients that work for me, eat within that range, and exercise daily. I know it sounds weird, but eating a balanced diet and exercising regularly is what I'm doing.

am I doing it right?
Karmasulu, drastically reducing your calories will give you immediate benefits, but not lasting ones. Soon your body will go into starvation mode and will slow down your metabolism, causing you some grief. If you're the patient sort try increasing your calories a bit and, like notelaine said, try to increase your protein intake. How much, you say? If you have a calculator, or know how to use a spreadsheet, you might consider calculating your macro-nutrient values (Fat, Carbs, Protein) yourself using the simple formulas at http://www.healthylivingheavylifting.com/how-to-calculate-macros-for-cutting/. I think this was written for weight lifters, but it applies to mere mortals too. If that site doesn't suit your tastes it might get you pointed in the right direction to help you nail down your macronutrient (a.k.a "macros"Wink so you experience smooth, consistent, healthy weight loss and avoid losing muscle.
