Budget living is on everyone’s mind these days. The good news is that losing weight doesn’t have to mean spending more money. In fact, the main ingredient for lasting results – sheer determination – doesn’t cost a penny.
No amount of expensive equipment or specialist diet foods will achieve results without the will to keep at it and achieve your goals. So if you want a cheap way to top up the benefits you get from the gym, why not get walking?
A 30 minute brisk walk will raise your heart-rate and can burn an impressive 170 calories. Better yet, it’s free and accessible to anyone, no matter how fit you are or how much money you have in the bank.
Eating out is not only costly to our waistlines but also to out wallets; so try eating at home more often. When you prepare your own food you are in complete control of the ingredients, preparation method and portion sizes.
You also won’t be tempted to get your money’s worth by eating too much just because it’s there on your plate… put any leftovers in the fridge and save them for tomorrow for lunch instead!
