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.
You can absolutely change your lifestyle without spending any money. The first thing I would do is join a free site as the others mentioned or Sparkpeople (www.sparkpeople.com).
At Sparkpeople, you can track everything you eat which lets you know exactly how much you’re eating, as well as holding yourself accountable for what you eat. You can also track your workouts as well as your weight. They have articles and a great community of support.
Do you ahve any gym access included in your student fees? My father pays for a gym membership for me, but otherwise, I’ve lost 60 pounds without spending anything else. It has been almost effortless by simply changing my lifestyle. My goals have been to be healthier, losing weight has been a great side effect of that. I owe a lot of it to the support and educational materials available at Sparkpeople.
Sparkpeople (and youtube, and other sites already mentioned) have lots of videos showing you how to do strength training and cardio without much equipment. Go for it, and good luck!
