I’m down over 20 pounds to date.
It’s been a hard time losing weight because I’ve been sick with vertigo like symptoms for the past month. Even so, I’ve still manage to lose at least 5 more pounds since my symptoms started.
So the question is: “Am I Losing Weight Frugally“? After all this was and still is part of my goal!
The answer is: “Yes“, but I’m not doing it as frugally as I had hoped that I would.
I started out being very frugal, eating both very healthy and inexpensive foods like eggs, peanuts, cheese and broccoli. And those worked out well at first, but eventually they got boring. So I decided to spice it up with some grilled hamburger, and that was a good and welcome change, but that got old too. So that’s when I started cooking salmon burgers! Good but on the pricey side, but to make matters worse I started craving chocolate, and I bought some Atkin’s low carb bars (peanut butter and chocolate crisps). Those last two were getting on the pricier side, especially when I went through the Atkin’s bars in two days (the box cost about $6.00). The salmon is very heathy for you but the chocolate bars isn’t but at least it’s crunchy!
Actually I’ve been craving fish a lot lately, and too much tuna isn’t good for you… Oh Well…
I’ve made the eggs less boring by warning up my eggs in the microwave (be carefully since they will explode if you aren’t careful!). Of course I remove the shell first and only have the egg in for a few seconds (just enough to take the chill off and give them some warmth! It’s not great, but it’s better than cold hard-boiled eggs.
So if you have any tips, for low carb foods, please comment! I need to keep myself in check from a cost perspective!
P.S. Remember to take a good vitamin while you are on a low carb diet. It slipped my mind this last time!
