How To Eat Healthy And Lose Weight On A Budget - Less is More!
Less Groceries - Eat less food to save money on your grocery bill and on calories. Focus on lean proteins like fish, chicken and turkey. Only eat red meat occasionally. Choose 3 days a week to stay away from breads, pasta, and grains. This will save money on them and also help your body to digest easier for a faster metabolism.
Less Eating - Focus on smaller portions to lessen your caloric intake and eating less groceries. Use your hand as a guide. A closed fist should be the size of your protein. The palm of your hand is for the size of carbohydrates. The whole open hand is for fruits and veggies.
