As I posted in the other thread you started this morning, the best place to start is by setting up your profile in FitDay and start logging food. Have you done that yet? Once you do, you can look at your food log and see what is good to eat and what is not.

Basically, with some personal variation, eat fruits, veggies, lean protein (chicken, lean beef, lowfat dairy), and complex carbs, as well as healthy (monounsaturated) fats (whole wheat, etc.). That's very simplified. Stay away from simple carbs (things made from white flour, sugar).

Google can be your best friend.

If you don't have access to scales you can take body measurements. Then remeasure weekly, bi-weekly or monthly to asses your progress. After all the number on a scale is just a number and what we all really want is to be healthy and fit. It would be nice to have a starting weight so you can set up your Fitday profile and get a Base Metabolic Rate that will be used to generate the numbers Cassie referred to in her other post. Do you have a neighbor or friend that you could use or borrow a scale from?
