Desperate to set up an effective weight loss strategy

I badly need some help / advice on getting my weight under control. I get mixed messages everywhere I turn, but I feel like I don't have time to play around anymore. I'm completely desperate to get myself to do something and stick with it so I can at least get from "obese" to "overweight" if not to "normal". [more inside]

I get moody too, but I'm not hungry

Inspired by mrunderhill's question below, I also get moody, but it occurs maybe an hour or so after eating too much, particularly too much of something starchy or sweet. What's wrong with me? I'd guess sugar crash, but it occurs sooner than I would have expected, and eating more doesn't help at all, in fact, it seems to make it worse. [more inside]

Seeking data about the health effects of dieting for non-overweight people interested in moderate weight loss.

Is there data about moderate weight loss for the relatively thin? For example, we all know that yo-yo dieting is bad, etc., etc. But is there any data about whether it's bad for a not-overweight person to gain five pounds every winter and then lose it every spring? It seems like all the healthy eating and weight loss stuff I read is based on studies of fat people.

Can a nutritionist stage an intervention?

I’d like to find an Austin-area nutritionist who makes house calls, if such a person exists. I’m talking about someone who will come in and go through the fridge and the cupboards and the pantries, throwing out the over-processed, obesity-fostering crapola, and then provide—even dictate—a shopping list and a weekly menu. If that’s not possible, what’s the nearest approximation? [more inside]

Tricks for a Dietary Transition?

My wife has a condition that may be helped by cutting dairy foods and wheat from her diet. Can anyone advise us on how to make the transition from a diet replete with dairy and wheat to one devoid of these foods? How will our bodies react? What about our psyches? Can anyone recommend recipes or better yet, cook books?

How should a weight-lifting, running, vegetarian woman eat to have energy and life forever?

The more I work out, the more I realize that nutrition has a huge impact on my energy. When is the best time to eat various foods during the day so I have the most energy when I get to the gym at 5:30 p.m.? And how can I meet my nutritional needs, given that I'm a vegetarian who likes less-processed foods but doesn't have a lot of time for cooking (and can't handle eating beans every day)? I feel like I need a lot more protein all of a sudden. [more inside]

Terminology in nutrition

I use Fitday (the Windows program downloadable from Fitday.com) and I don't understand the difference between "oz" and "oz, raw, yields" in things like "Onion, mature, raw" and "Cabbage, red, raw". The "oz, raw, yields" includes "raw" a second time (redundant, right?) and what's with the "yields" as opposed to just "oz"? Anyone know? (Fitday is not the only one with the usage, I believe.)
