I would do research into the 4 hour body book by Tim ferris. You can look up items to eat via Pinterest with a search of 4 hour body or just ask and I can send you some suggestions. It's really good for toning your body and putting on good weight IE: muscle

To lose weight, you must simply eat less calories per day than you burn. Or burn more calories than you eat. As for what you eat, I recommend that you try to keep your carbohydrates at or below 50% of your daily diet, keep your protein at or above 30%, and your fats at or below 20%.

There's a great calculator to help you figure out what balance of these three macronutrients you should be hitting each day. It's http://iifym.com/iifym-calculator/.

Try to eat as many plain or whole foods as possible. Lots of vegetables, lean meats, beans and legumes, etc. Also make sure you're drinking plenty of water. I mean PLENTY of water. I really could go on for a while, but I'm trying to keep this short. If you burn more calories than you eat, you'll lose. It's pretty straight forward. Good luck!
