No problem! Nutrition is key and ultimately the number one key before fitness. Keep it clean, complex carbs, lean proteins, healthy fats and if you like to eat a lot and cook I highly recommend crock potting meals. There are a lot of healthy crock pot recipes.
Remember as well that a car if going 0-60 mph takes a lot more fuel than a car staying at 35 mph. The same can be seen with carbs and fats. Carbohydrates are the number one source of fuel for the body and when you're lifting heavy or performing more intense anaerobic exercises, your body will utilize the glycogen stores (carb storage) in your body before using fats for fuel. Longer cardio sessions utilize fats more than carbohydrates for fuel. On days where I'm planning more cardio HIIT, I keep my carbs a little lower and keep the healthy fats but for heavy lifting days I'll go for more complex carbs because that's what my body will utilize for fuel.
