I've already posted a thread about how i want to shed 8lbs which i am finding very difficult w/o starving myself. Just wondering what you ladies eat in order to keep muscle but reduced fat.
Breakfast: Special K with non fat milk
Lunch: Weight Watchers soup or bowl of mixed fruit slices
Mid Afternoon: Can of peaches
Dinner: Chicken with sauces such as Uncle Bens with vegetables instead of rice, or grilled fish/chicken with baked potato and vegetables,
Pudding: small scoop of ice cream
Occasional evening snack: a couple of crackers with some mature cheese
Drink: Water and fruit juice
I do intensive fitness schedual 5-6 days per week, and need some carbs for energy as i do alot of running.
Does n e one have any tips on eating?

I'm new at this too, so take my advice with a grain of salt. From looking at your diet and comparing it with the information I've gained in the last couple of weeks, I'd say you should cut down on the processed foods (weight watchers, cereal, etc.) and limit your fats and starches late in the day. I am on BFL and now eating 6 times a day. I'll post my daily diet and you can see what I mean. So far it's doing wonders for me, and it's the "clean" diet you'll see people talking about throughout many threads. I don't know if you'll like it, or if it will work for you, but I hate to see a question with no response.
Meal One: Breakfast Burrito-
Three egg whites scrambled with one tablespoon of fat free cheddar, topped with 2 tablespoons of salsa, and wrapped in a whole wheat tortilla.
Meal Two: Myoplex Lite Shake
Meal Three: Chicken Pita
Grilled boneless, skinless, chicken breast, lettuce, and spicy mustard in 1/2 whole wheat pita.
Meal Four: Myoplex Lite Shake
Meal Five: Grilled Salmon, Grilled Veggies (zucchini, mushrooms, onion, and bell pepper), and roasted potatoes.
Meal Six: One serving of cottage cheese and about four strawberries.

I eat differently every day but I maintain 5-6 meals per day each meal containing a protein (lean meat, fish, egg whites, protein powder), source of carbs (oatmeal, brown rice, whole wheat bread, yams), veggies or low carb fruit (strawberries, blueberries) and fat up until early afternoon and then it's protein and veggies (greens mostly like broccoli, green beans or spinach). I try to stay as far away from processed foods as possible although we can't be good all the time :D
Try putting your daily intake in at fitday.com. Makes it easier to see what you're eating and what needs to be changed :)

Kupah...you are taking in way too many simple carbs. I would eliminate the fruit and fruit juices from your diet. If you want carbs, replace them with high fiber carbs.
For example- breakfast- If you want cereal, Instead of special K, have oatmeal, Kashi, or uncle sams. Also add a protein such as eggwhites or NF cheese.
Try to add lean protein to every meal. Right now you are only getting a small amt of protein at lunch.
Once you change around your diet a little, you should start to see more fat loss....without decreasing calories or increasing cardio.
