You cannot out-train a bad diet.
It gets harder the older you get and even harder if you're female. You can even overeat too much healthy food and miss your training goals! If weight management is on your short list of things to improve, let's start by tracking your micronutrients for a few days. This will give you an idea of how much energy and from which sources you are taking in. You will need to measure your food and research the grams of carbohydrate, protein, fat and fiber you are consuming. Is it enough to stay fulfilled and energized but not so much that you're gaining body fat? Are there appropriate intervals of fasting between eating? Is your intake too carbohydrate-centric to reach your goals? Are you missing any major micronutrients (vitamins and minerals essential for vital functions)? It is a challenge in the Standard American Diet (SAD) to find nutrient-dense foods, which pack high micronutrients into low calorie foods, unless you know what you're looking for and where to forage for them.
Finding the right formula for your ever-changing body is a challenge with big rewards once it's accomplished! You are a science experiment with n=1, and we can figure this out.
