Lunch: 1 sandwich containing, 97% fat free ham, lettuce, tomato , onion and mustard, plus fruit
Dinner: 2 corn tortillas, refried beans, lettuce, tomato and salsa. Or something else.
The past two weeks she has gained a lb instead of losing. So I wrote her this diet. She claims no good as not enough diary, not enough fruit and to much protein. I need someone who knows there shit to write me a diet for my mother if my is no good . Here mine is.

i agree, however i wont write a diet for an elderly person becuase im not a qualified dietition and only am able to give advice for the mid to younger crowd since that is the crowd im in and my research stops there. your best bet may be to go see a doctor, my buddies dad is a doctor and he works in a gym a few days a week giving seminars and writing diets so maybe try to find someone in this type of work, or someone here may be able to help you!
