? FAT LOSS ON A BUDGET? BY @vatcheshakarian
Many people say that eating healthier is too expensive and they cannot afford to do it.
The same people that say this are also spending $14 dollars for a fruity cocktail at their favorite bar.
But that’s none of my business!
If you take the time to learn how to grocery shop, you will be able to purchase healthy foods and be able to lose fat.
When I started my fat loss journey, people constantly asked me if I was spending more money on food.
They were shocked when I told them that I had been saving more money than ever.
Think about it for a second.
You can go out for lunch or dinner and end up spending 13-15 dollars on a salad with a few pieces of chicken on it.
It’s lettuce, cheese, croutons, and plain chicken breast.
If you buy those at bulk from the grocery store, you can make salads for the entire week!
There are many grocery stores out there that have very very fair prices. Stores like Trader Joes, Walmart, Aldi, Grocery Outlet, Kroger, H-E-B, Winco are great stores.
If you are trying to save some cash and still want to grocery shop for healthier foods, you can do it. I do it, and you can too.
These stores have a lot of healthy foods for a lot cheaper than health food stores like Whole Foods, for example.
Also, you can look up the weekly ad (this is great when you are looking for deals) of each grocery store on their website.
Take a few minutes out of your day to find out which store is going to have some sales going on, and go to that store.
Go with a plan. Find some carb sources. Find some protein sources. Find a couple fat sources.
Carbohydrate sources that are inexpensive: Rice, Oats, Potatoes, Frozen Veggies, Frozen Fruit
Protein sources that are inexpensive: Chicken Breast, Ground Turkey, Eggs, Tuna, Beans, Lentils
Fat sources that are inexpensive: Eggs, Olive Oil, Peanut Butter, Avocado, Sardines
