I lost 90 pounds eating a wide variety of whole plant based foods without counting calories or feeling deprived. In addition, I feel alive, alert, awake, and healthy. I stay on this way of eating because I feel so good when I eat right. I eat more now, because the foods are not calorie dense. I avoid sugar, excess oils/fats, and salts. I avoid MSG, aspartame (diet drinks) because these are excitotoxins that increase appetite. I avoid all animal based food-like products and processed foods substituting healthy vegetables which can provide all the nutrition you need. It's easy to eat this way. Eat: + Legumes at every meal (peas, beans, or lentils) for protein. + Whole grains (brown rice or quinoa) for protein avoiding breads and cake. Every meal. + Ground flax seed (1 tspn) and no extra fat or oils. + Cups of leafy greens (kale or collards) for calcium, iron, and protein. + Colorful vegetables (raw & cooked) at every meal. + B12 and D as needed. + Whole fruit. Avoid juices and commercial drinks because of added sugar, fluoride, chlorine, and other contaminants. Many people have allergies to dairy and nuts, so watch out for this. You should have leafy greens in your diet and vegetables at every meal. There are no legumes (peas, beans, or lentils) in your current diet, and you should add them to every meal. You should have more non-gluten grains in your diet. You should eat brown rice instead of white to avoid some additives used when making white rice. Pasta should be a non-gluten pasta or better yet, a non-gluten whole grain. Your current diet has way too much animal protein. Excess animal protein can lead to acidosis in the blood which leads to the loss of calcium in bones. (Harvard's Nurses' Study reveals this) Excess dairy is associated with diabetes, heart disease, and growth of cancer tumors (breast, prostate, colon, and liver). This was studied by Professor Emeritus T. Colin Campbell of Cornell. He wrote the book "China Study." His findings have been confirmed by many followup studies. You should eat leafy greens, B12, and vitamin D and cut back on dairy or cut it out of your diet completely. The ideal diet is a whole plant based diet as suggested by Dr. Dean Ornish who wrote "Eat More, Weigh Less." Other reliable authors and experts include Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr. or Dr. Neal Barnard, or Dr. Joel Fuhrman.

Bennett Originally Answered: Slowly gaining weight for some reason?
if it is slowly gaining, it could either be: muscle, or fat. if you are only eating 1800 calories a day, you should keep eating at that amount, because you may be burning those calories and gaining muscles as you walk, and while doing other exercises, another reason is that you are gaining mass, not weight, but it eventually shows up as weight

combine your resistance training with short bursts of high intensity cardio to increase your post workout calorie burn
