I am a 250lb, 5’10" male who spends way too much time eating junk food and would like to make a change. I am fairly active doing some variation of physical exercise daily. I wanted to try this avenue however I do not know enough about nutrition to choose an appropriate DIY recipe.
I checked out the http://www.makesoylent.com/ site however there are just too many options to choose from and I did not notice a rating system that would tell me if the user had created something good or harmful. I am allergic to soy and I did notice that the most promising recipes seemed to use soy protein. I would like to lose weight while still retaining enough energy to exercise in the mornings and function throughout the day.
Can anyone steer me in the right direction? Let me know where to begin and what steps to take to ensure that I remain healthy?
Thank you for your help!
