So I have decided that I need to live a healthier lifestyle, because while I am not at an unhealthy weight yet, I am slowly but consistently gaining weight (where before it was more fluctuation). I don't want to diet, but I do want to have a healthy diet, and I barely know what that entails. I am a very open minded eater, which means I like pretty much most things out of every food group, so it's not like I don't already eat things that are healthy. But menu planning, building well balanced meals, etc -- it just seems like there is SO MUCH information out there and none of it is well organized. Questions:
1) Is there one, reliable resource you have used? Especially for those of you who do meal planning in advance.
2) I am thinking about seeing a nutritionist, does this make any sense? Will individualized information help me or will it all be obvious stuff I could have googled? Does anyone have experience with nutritionists for general assistance (as opposed to disorders, allergies, etc)?
