I’m on a budget, so I’m hoping to find some healthy meal solutions that are inexpensive, and a weight loss program that doesn’t require joining an online program or a gym. I’m a young college student on a college student’s budget. Any advice would be helpful. I want to turn my life around so that I don’t die at a young age.
First off, congratulations for taking the first steps towards reaching your goals by seeking out advice on how to start!
I’ve got a few recommendations that will hopefully help you get started on the path to healthier living. You can find them below:
1) If you have an iPhone/other smartphone check out these apps:
-Fitocracy: it’s basically a social network for those looking to improve their fitness. Here’s a quote about it directly from their website: “Get addicted to fitness just like a video game, only you level up in real life. Join the best fitness community on the planet and get in the best shape ever.”
-Nike Training Club: a fantastic resource with a ton of free workouts. The app even lets you choose a workout based on your current fitness level. This means that beginner, intermediate, and/or advanced exercisers can be provided with workouts/specific exercises that are both safe and challenging.
2) There’s a great blog called, “Don’t Waste the Crumbs” whose tagline is, “A real food journey“on a real budget.” As I’m sure you probably could have guessed, the blog is all about eating healthier without having to spend a fortune. I’d recommend you check it out if eating on a budget is essential – here’s the link: www.dontwastethecrumbs.com
3) ACE (American Council on Exercise) has an awesome, free database of workouts/exercises that was recently made available to the public. You can find it by going to their website (http://www.acefitness.org/), clicking on the right side of the page where it says “GET FIT,” and then exploring from there.
If none of my recommendations sound appealing to you please let me know. I’d be more than happy to make some other suggestions for you. Best of luck!
