What am I doing wrong?
I'm going to try and eat 100g + of protein and keep the carbs below 100g.
I've got 2 x pitta bread with tuna for lunch, a protein shake for pre gym and salmon with veg for dinner.

Will see how this goes.

What am I doing wrong?
I think gonna try and just eat protein after 6pm. Drawing back on the carbs. I did have a degree of success a while back with this - it just gets a little boring sometimes.

I've had omlette with a green salad this evening.

I do have some protein shakes. I'm just weary of putting weight on. Should i be using these as a meal replacement or snack?Or immediatley post workout?

I admit FredMugs Saturday was a bad day, Pizzahut for kiddies party!

Thanks for the advice guys really helpful. I know a lot of this is trial and error. I'm just frustrated because i have pretty done the same for last few years and weight has began to creep up.

Reference the thyroid issue: my father has suffered with this both underactive and overactive. But I have been tested a few times including recently and all is ok.

Most of my carbs come from cereal, rice, cous cous, occasional banana, and potatoes or sweet potatoes.

As for the exercise how do know how many calories i have consumed during the day if I don't try to include everything?

What am I doing wrong?
I am 37 about 6ft2 with a broad shouldered body.I have been active for about last 15 years, trying to train 5 times a week.
I am trying to loose about 14-20 pounds after my weight has slowly crept up over last 5 years.

I like to think I eat a good diet as I always have done for last 10-15 years.

I have started to watch my calorie intake over the last week using this site and my android phone. My daily average calorie intake is 1598 with my daily exercise 3100 including resting and deskwork.

My exercise regime consists of cardio 3-4 times a week and weight training one day (4 sets of 15 upper body)

My only vice is a couple of beers at weekend but going not over RDI. My evening meal is normally at 8:30 - am i eating too late?

Looking at my Calorie distribution average is Fat: 64.97g, Protein: 78.36g, Carbs: 165.27g

Question is what am i doing wrong. I exercise and eat a balanced diet. Why am i not loosing weight yet? Should I cut down on carbs and replace with more protein? Do I need to ditch the resistance training totally?

I am assuming my RDI is 2500 does this sound correct?
