There is a Social Media rant by an Overweight woman claiming “she does not have the funds to eat healthy and go to the gym”. She goes on saying gym memberships are expensive and healthy food is out of her budget.
I call BS on this! (excuse my language), but really, eating healthy IS affordable and there is no need to go to the gym in order to lose weight. If you really want to lose weight you will find a way. This is just another excuse by someone trying to get more tax dollars.
Besides, buying produce at the Grocery store is cheaper than buying junk food sold on the “aisles” . Heck even cookies, candies and cakes get expensive. It is all about budgeting and being smart. Making excuses by saying “you don’t have money to eat healthy” is just bogus and will never help you lose weight..
Losing weight starts with your mind, if a person really wants to live healthier they will. They will obtain free advice to eat healthier on a budget. There is plenty of information out there on how to do so, especially with the web being free.
Eating junk food should be the “luxury” any way. Its the junk food that causes the Health problems which cause your costs to increase. Eating Healthy on a Budget is actually really easy to do. Here’s an example of some “low cost” healthy meals:
Breakfast: Nonfat or soy yogurt (usually on sale for $1 or less each), but in bulk, even less, Have a Banana with it as well. Less than $2 for 6 of them
Lunch: Bread (bought from the “reduced” aisle is still fresh, especially if you keep in fridge) and lunchmeat
Dinner: Chicken with vegetables (or wheat pasta and vegetables)
Its doable to eat healthy on a budget, if you put your mind to it.
Do you agree with me on this?
