Is Eating Healthy Too Expensive?

Anyone ever tell you its too expensive to eat healthy? If you believed that story, I have some waterfront property to sell you in Arizona. Saying that, "its too expensive to eat healthy" is a built-in excuse to eat bad, fattening food.

Have you seen how expensive fast food is these days? Or, try eating lunch every day at a restaurant. You could easily spend $70 to $80 dollars a week eating out at lunch and dinner.

Now, have you seen how inexpensive fresh fruits, vegetables, oatmeal, eggs, low-fat yogurt, legumes, tuna, chicken and whole grains are for your pocket book. These foods also last longer into the week and are more nutritious. Even organic foods will last longer into the week (although they are more expensive) and save you money in the long run.

So, what's the point? Eating healthy plays a huge part in you reaching your fat loss and weight loss goals. Don't let excuses stop you. Planning and packing your food is always healthier and less expensive.

Many times, eating junk foods with high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) packs on the calories and pounds quickly. This is how it works: your body processes the fructose in high-fructose corn syrup differently than it does regular sugar.

It also lowers the hormone leptin in your body. Leptin signals to your brain that you're full. It also forces your liver to kick more fat out into your bloodstream (especially true with sugary drinks because they are processed so fast)! So, your body wants more and stores more fat at the same time (HFCS is in more food products than you might think).

Its too expensive for your health and fitness to not eat healthy. Plan your meals for the week.
