hello all, I am 21(6 foot 475 LBS) former EMT student, who is looking advice and information on how to lose weight. This may sound silly to some of you, but I grew up in a household were my father always worked and I was stuck with an opiate addict who just fed me and my sister junk. I was never really taught the right way to eat , I was always a big kid in height and weight wise, but recently I noticed within myself I have been gaining a lot since my dads death in 2014 ( pulmonary embolism) and I want to lose weight and go back to Emt to finish what I started, I have always wanted to help people since I was a little kid but I can help anyone unless I help myself. but I have no idea on where to start, btw stopped drinking soda since my dad passed ( only drink it when going out to Applebee's etc.) any tips or any information really would be helpful. Thank you all in advance!!
