You don't need to spend money on diet programs like Nutrisystem, Slim Fast or Weight Watchers

By Mike Thayer

Turkey Lunch MeatWhy spend money on diet programs like Nutrisystem, Weight Watchers or Jenny Craig, when you can do pretty much all that they offer yourself and far cheaper?

Those weight loss programs, while they do offer some measure of success in losing weight, remember that they're in the diet business to make money. 

Think about it, diet programs like Nutrisystem, Weight Watchers, etc., are about adding something to your diet.  They want you to include them in your daily regimen and that means spending money with them. 

You don't need to do that to lose weight.

A good weight loss plan is about the elimination of some foods, not the addition of them.  You shouldn't have to spend extra money to lose weight.  

Don't buy a bunch of overpriced meals, eliminate a few things from your regular grocery list instead.   Scratch the KETO friendly frozen waffles and syrup from your shopping list and don't purchase a bunch of protein bars you wouldn't normally buy, pick up an extra carton of eggs instead.   Don't take money out of your wallet/purse to buy any of those diet shakes that really don't hold you between meals, pick up some lunch meat instead.

"But Mike," you say, "I don't cook, I need those packaged meals to stay on a diet."

No you don't.  If you can convince yourself that buying a bunch of over-priced cardboard boxes is a good weight loss plan, then you can convince yourself that making a few simple adjustments at the grocery store and in the kitchen is an even BETTER weight loss plan.  For the time you put some pre-packaged KETO friendly meal in the microwave, you can scramble up some eggs.  By the time you take the wrapper off an over-priced protein bar, you could already be munching on some deli sliced roast beef and a piece of cheese with a higher protein count.

Forget the Lean Cuisine, ditch the Slim Fast, focus on making a smarter grocery list.   You'll not only lose weight, you'll spend far less money doing it, the Bachelor on the Cheap thing to do.
