So it's come to the point where i'm pretty tired of looking at myself in the mirror. I'm 24 years old, 5'7 (Male, that's not that tall for my gender.) and bordering 284 lbs. I'm looking to drop down to about 200, maybe 210. I know to lose that amount of weight it will take a lot of dedication to make it happen, but at this point all i think i'm missing is honest encouragement. For my current eating habits, i eat pretty terrible ( I.E Bacon cheese burgers, most fried foods, lots of take out in general and more pop then someone should drink(looking at 2-3 glasses a day if that) ) So i know my main thing i need to cut is the pop, another thing is i pretty much spent 3 years after high school doing nothing, just sitting on my ass and it did nothing good for me. So i know i need to ditch the pop intake, and be more active. I got my first job at the beginning of the year, so it pretty much took me out of my computer chair at home into another chair at work where i sit there and repair watches. I think i'm ranting at this point, you people don't need my life story lol
Anyways, what i'm looking for tip wise would be:
What foods would be good to eat to boost my metabolism, that aren't too fattening etc?
Is there some sort of exercise i can do from home that would help me lose the kegger i'm rocking atm?
What else would someone who also went through this suggest?
Any advice is welcome, i expect a couple trolls to come here but ill just ignore them.
