I joined the site and was looking for a way to start a diet. I am a male age 53 years old. 5' 11" weighing in at 238 Lbs. I feel miserable at this time in my life. Just bending down is a challenge. I love the normal food that any average person like, like burgers Fry's and a lots of Root Beer Soda..I know the Soda is my biggest challenge and it needs to be cut out completely..I indulge in app. 54 Ounces a day or less. I need to change my way of eating and try to get the calories down to at least 2000 a day to get back down to 200 Lbs which is my goal..I love fruits and vegatable's..I am very active daily in my job and get lots of exercise, but it makes me want to eat more to sustain my energy level. Can anyone recommend a site that would give me some good diet food recipes to loo at and see what would work good for me with my very busy schedule. I love blended drinks and foods, expecially with fruits and vegetables. Any help would be greatly appreciatedView Thread
