    Best diet for me?

    I have a pretty high metabolic rate and by far I don't put on weight. However due to some setbacks I have not been able to exercise for a few years and now I am looking to get back to shape. I am not obese at 36 about to be 37 I still feel hungry like how I used to in my college days and I have to eat more than average. What will be the best diet plan for me? I am thinking of going down on carbs.

    What are you trying to do (gain/lose)? How far out is your goal (5lbs/50lbs)? What methods can you use (no gym/some weights/full gym)?

    Personally I'm a carb guy as they are the cheap and easy fuel for your workout. What I generally recommend (mind you because I tend to not eat enough fat) is to make sure your protein is there, then fat, then fill in the rest with carb. This all depends on your goal though. The answer could be as easy as just start working out and don't change anything in the way you eat.

      If you are not unhappy with/hindered by your size in your daily life, don't worry about calories, think about food quality. Try to get more fruits and veggies. Get enough lean protein. Limit "treat" food to 20ish% of your diet.

        Thanks. I'm trying to lose weight. I don't have a paunch. But I do have belly fat and I do look slightly chubby. I am guessing I'll have to change the quality of food and not really worry about the calories.

          Fixing food quality (if it is unsupervised 8 year old type rubbish) will usually lower your calories a bit w out needing to count them. As long as you don't, like, eat a whole pkg of granola instead of cereal for breakfast or 2 avocados with lunch bc vitamins.....if you were maintaining on junkfood diet you will slowly drop a few lbs by changing to healthier stuff.
