Losing Weight on a Budget in 2013

Because of economic hard times, more people than ever before are looking to get by with less money. Reducing costs on household bills and vehicle expenses are mainly at the forefront of people’s minds to save extra cash, but losing weight is also an important issue, as we all look to lead healthier lives.

If you want to lose weight on a budget in 2013, then you should consider the following points:

Eat at home

While eating out can be a nice treat maybe a few times a month, going out on too much of a regular basis can have a tremendous effect on your wallet. For this reason, it’s a good idea to eat at home more, so you can cook your meals from scratch and save hundreds of dollars a month.

Coupons

In recent years, coupons have took off in a big way. There are now thousands of coupon sites where you can find great deals on food brands available at the supermarket, meaning you can significantly cut the costs of your shopping bill. Also, make sure you keep an eye on the Sunday newspapers, as there are usually some great coupon deals to be found for groceries.

Appetite suppressants

If you find yourself constantly spending money on junk food snacks to satisfy your hunger cravings, then you might want to consider an appetite suppressant supplement. For example, Garcinia Cambogia extract has been getting a lot of attention in the news and media recently, as it has helped millions of people lose weight and save money by reducing their urge to binge eat.

Canned food

Let’s face it, items such as fresh fruit and vegetables can be expensive, especially when you are buying out of season. For this reason, why not buy the canned version to save yourself some money? Not only is canned food cheaper, but in most instances it is just as nutritious as the fresh and frozen alternatives.

Walk

Why spend your hard earned money on an expensive gym membership, when you can get all of the exercise your body needs…for free. The summer is a great time to put your walking shoes on and get out in the fresh air to burn those calories.

Water filter

An important part of weight loss is drinking enough water every day so you stay well hydrated. Unfortunately, tap water is often full of chemicals, and bottled water is expensive. You can get round this by purchasing a water filter, so you can drink as much water as you want without affecting your health or breaking the bank.
