how to eat healthy on a budget to lose weight

Last Updated on January 5, 2022 by Latrice

Healthy eating on a budget for weight loss doesn’t have to be complicated. What I’ve learned to do is keep it simple and work the hell out of money-saving apps and memberships that offer worthy discounts.

It’s also been way more affordable, and effective, to eat super simple meals of meat, fat, and vegetables. Sometimes I’ll just eat meat and follow a more carnivore way of eating.

As someone on a tight budget that needs to eat as healthy as possible for as cheap as possible, this has worked the best. And not only for my budget but also on my weight.

When I’m being good and sticking with it.

Here’s what I’ve done to keep my groceries affordable for me.

The cheapest, quickest working diet for weight loss

Surprisingly it has been eating a primarily carnivore diet.

I’m naturally eating less on it and I purchase beef and butter a majority of the time. Sometimes I’ll mix things up with chicken, pork, eggs, or a salad on a Saturday.

This way of eating has not only been good on my budget and weight when I’m on it, but it’s also cleared my eczema, taken care of my dandruff problem, doesn’t bloat my tummy like vegetables do, and keeps my skin pretty clear.

I’ve even been asked if I’m pregnant because of how I started glowing. lol

(More things I stopped eating for major weight loss.)

A tight budget doesn’t have to make healthy eating hard to do. Give these tips a try and spend less coin on healthy groceries.

Happy healthy eating and cashback gathering!
