Dieting can be expensive at times and I often get asked, “is there a way to do it on a budget?”
Well yes you can, but don’t let your budget come between you and your health.
Losing weight doesn’t need to be all about organic vegetables and grass-finished beef, many healthy foods are actually no more expensive than most junk foods.
Plus, many good-for-you foods such as lean meats, whole grains, and vegetables are rich in nutrients, like protein and fiber, that keep you fuller longer than highly-processed packaged snacks that contain plenty of sodium, added sugars, and refined carbohydrates. Or consider water as a replacement for fizzy and other sugar-sweetened drinks will help you slash calories and lose weight. The best part? It’s free!
Here are foods, which rank among some of the least-expensive diet foods that you can add to your shopping list:
• Fruits: Banana, apples, grapes
• Vegetables: Frozen and canned vegetables (if canned opt for low sodium version)
• Grains: Brown rice, oats
• Protein: Milk, eggs, beans
– Eat before you go shopping, the full feeling will make you feel like you don’t want anything. Then make sure you have a shopping list, this will guide you around the store, collecting only the things you need. Saving you money and time!
