Save Money While Losing Weight


Woman Putting a Quarter in Piggy Bank

You can read about it online.. being unhealthy can be expensive. If you are familiar with the Metabolic Research Center's stand on health and wellness, you know that the financial costs of obesity are much higher and far more risky than the cost of managing your weight. Still, there's nothing wrong with saving money while you whittle away inches and restore your body's hormonal balance.

Grow Your Own Food

Planting your own garden lets you save money on your grocery bill. Plus, gardening burns fat and lets you have some precious outdoor time. You can get a jump on the seasons and pick a few plants that grow well in your region during certain times of the year. Herb and spice gardens (i.e. parsley, cilantro, mint, etc.), vegetable gardens (lettuce and cucumbers), fruit orchards (tomato and melon) and many legumes that can thrive in all sorts of environments.

Leave the Car at Home

If you live in an area where most places are within walking distance, then give your car a break. Bike or walk to work each day or places you visit regularly like the grocery store. If you don't live in an urban area, bring this free physical activity into your daily life in other ways, such as parking far away when shopping at Wal-Mart. You can also take the stairs at work or school. Maybe suggest a bike ride with friends or family.  There are numerous ways to burn calories and save money while you're doing it.

Don't Eat the Whole Thing

Cut down on your portion sizes and you will see the difference on your grocery bill. If you eat out a lot, ask for a takeout box and put away half your meal for tomorrow. This will make it less tempting to eat large portions and you can save on food costs. If you do decide that you just got to have a special treat, practice your discipline and never eat the whole thing. You can't save money by reselling the leftovers but you might reduce your medical costs or save your life.
