I second the recommendation for SparkPeople or FitDay. Either one of these programs (which you can also use on a SmartPhone) will track calories, your macronutrients (protein, fat, and carbs), and your micronutrients (vitamins and minerals). Then just log what you eat and track weight and measurements. Learn from the calorie-counting folks, who can educate you about calorie floors, etc. Lots and lots and lots of diets and theories out there, and if simple calorie counting doesn't work for you (and it does for many, many people), start worrying then about playing with macronutrients or trying to follow the recommendations of a particular diet. You may also investigate weight lifting (a newfound passion of mine) and other exercise options.

I was on IP, a couple yrs ago and lost 40lbs, gained it back, and now I regreted spending that kind of money on something I realized I could do on my own with IP compatibles I could find at my local supermarket much cheaper, and my low carb yummie recepies. That diet does work, but its not for everyone, and is too strict and too expensive, you can still do low carb and lose as much on your own a burger would not kick you out of ketosis, and as long as you keep your carbs down you should lose. Your coach is another story, many of these "coaches" dont have any knowledge about nutrition, and therefore cant answer certain questions, they are just money making machines. I will suggest you to find out more about low carbing, Ip compatibles, and make your own recepies its working for me, and for many x-Ip folks, Good Luck.

I agree with what others have said here. 100 a week is very expensive. I lost 57 lbs just counting calories and excersizing. I did not restrict any foods, I just counted each calorie. There are lots of people here that can help you if you choose to try that.
