Some people like to think that healthy food is expensive to help justify their horrible eating habits, but its simply not true. They love to whine:
“I’d love to eat healthy but its too expensive.”
Poppycock! They do NOT want to eat healthy and are grasping for excuses to be lazy and eat tasty, highly processed, unhealthy fast food and junk food. Many of the healthiest foods on the planet are also the cheapest. Take legumes which are one of the healthiest and nutritious foods on the planet – soy beans, black beans, pinto beans, garbonzo beans are all dirt cheap. You can get a 25 pound sack of pinto beans from Costco for $14 and that would feed a person for two to four weeks. Even organic vegetables are not that expensive when you buy in bulk at big box stores like Costco.
Here is our shopping cart for two bodybuilders for a week. If you think high protein, healthy eating like this is expensive then add up the money you spend every week on:
- fast food
- restaurant meals
- convenience store snacks
- soft drinks
- alcoholic beverages
- grocery store
THEN add up the money that you will have to spend after you get obese:
- fat loss supplements
- fat loss programs
- copayment of obesity related health costs
NOW TELL ME EATING HEALTHY IS EXPENSIVE!
