Been reading the thread and It ade me remember that i've been trying to get in shape and help my room mate lose weight (he's a biiiig boy).
I have a couple of questions for ya.
As far as protein sources go, how would you rate soy? I use it a lot for cooking (Tofu, Soymilk, Okara, ect.) and everything i've read on it shows that it's really good for protein and iron. That and I love the taste :3
I have fairly bad scoliosis and poor leg circulation and it's hard for me for me to actually exercise sometime because it simply hurts too much. Got any tips for what exercises I can do? Other than swimming of course.
Also, the eating every 3 hours of so isn't very plausible for me on my work days o-o
Oh, and as an added note (mostly personal opinion as a cook), It seems like Onigiri (riceballs) would be excellent for the meals if someone is on the go. They travel well and are easy to eat, easier than a sandwich if they're made right. Plus, they can actually have a higher Rice to meat ratio than just rice and meat, without the rice tasting all bleh.
