Default UK Based Meal Prep

I've been looking at a few UK based food prepping companies.
I'm looking improve my nutrition, and I think the easiest first step is to get someone else to do it for me.

So, I'm not the biggest food nerd but I was under the impression Soy and Legumes increases estrogen.
However, I'm noticing a lot of UK food prep companies are using them alot in their meals.

If I've worked hard to reduce my body fat ( and therefore reduced the ability of my body to produce estrogen) why would you then put estrogen producing food into your diet?
It's putting me off wanting to try any of these meal prep companies, as there are probably other alarm bells I haven't even spotted due to my lack of knowledge.

What are people's thoughts on the above?

Years ago when I first became a vegetarian I read the same nonsense about soy converting to estrogen. I forget the scientific explanation about why it's B.S. but a quick google search will give it. I'm 205 lbs. very low body fat and have no worries with anything plant based, although I do buy non-gmo food whenever possible. In the U.K. I guess you don't have to worry about that though. P.S. My father was born and raised in Tunbridge Wells.

Ah, “The Royal Borough” Tunbridge Wells. It’s a nice place.

I got the above menu from a company called SixPax (I have zero affiliation with the company). I was, and still am, tempted to email to see why they use it so much.
I kind of assume it’s because it’s cheap alternative to other protein sources

Like I said, I wouldn't worry about the soy. As for those meals, to have all that pre-made sounds like it would cost a fortune. It sure would around here. Check the ingredients carefully for a lot of preservatives ect. As long as it's "clean" it sounds o.k. Good luck with it. I'm guessing you want to put some pounds on. Maybe tune into Nigella Lawson to learn how to cook. I watch her cause she's hot, ha!
