1. Eat more of everything
1.a have fun with food - look for something new to try every week (there are some weird looking vegetables out there!)
1.b stressing out over your diet is worse for you than a few extra pounds
2. Do not be concerned about the minutia of Macro ratios
2.a Over time it will all balance out. What your body requires day to day or even hour to hour will not be the same.
3. Allow your weight to fluctuate a little. You could easily put on 20 pounds and probably feel great.
4. Drink when you are thirsty - not some predetermined quantity.
I'm 53 y/o 5'10" and weigh ~175 (my target weight). I tried the VLC route and didn't like it. I'm probably in the 100 gram carb range per day and my weight stays pretty steady.

Some of you may die, but that is a risk I'm willing to take.
