Healthy But Cheap Diet Plan

One of the biggest myths out there is the myth that eating healthy costs too much.

Just the opposite... and I'll prove it to you in three ways.

#1: CASH

Here's some sample figures courtesy of Scott Tousignant's fitness blog...

: 2 medium size sweet potatoes $1 or... small fries from a fast food joint
: 2 red peppers $1 or... a can of pop
: Bowl of oatmeal with fruit & protein powder (my favourite) $2 or... large bag of chips
: 6 Chicken Breasts $10 or... a sub combo from a fast food joint
: 18 eggs $3.50 or... a burger from a fast food joint
: 2 salmon fillets $15 or... large pizza
: Loaded chicken salad (homemade) $3 or... bag of cookies
: Large bag of oatmeal $3.50 or... 4 chocolate bars

Not much of a comparison, it is?

Yet the foods on the left would feed a family of two or more for 4-7 days... the foods on the right? 2-3 days if you live through it.

Tips to make the most expensive part of eating healthy -- the cost of quality meats -- go further include...

1. Use tofu fillers in chicken and beef recipes. Even if you hate tofu, you can barely taste the difference when combined properly.

2. Buy your meats in bulk online. You can find less expensive grass-fed beef and naturally-raised chicken and have it delivered to you if you live near a large city. If not, check the local farmers.

3. Eat meat only 3-4 times per week and use black beans with rice or inexpensive tuna for your other days. I eat tuna cooked in a skillet with lots of veggies and some olive oil almost every night and I LOVE the taste!

Jon Benson's book The Every Other Day Dietplan ( ) has over 40 pages of recipes in it to help you eat healthy and cheap... and you can still eat out and consume your favourite foods several times per week.


Do we 'really' need to talk about buying new (usually larger) clothes every year or two? Or about the health care costs associated with being even 20 pounds over your ideal weight, let alone more? How about the time you miss from work with excessive colds?

Eating healthy and taking care of your body adds years to your life... and for the record, the years eating poorly takes away from your life, on average, costs each American over $80,000 in medical expenses.

Want to add that to your food budget?


Anyone who has been fit knows the joy it brings... the freedom you feel from wearing whatever you want... the productivity you see from increased energy... the pace at which you move during the day.

I get a lot of people that come up to me and ask why they are always tired and lethargic. Those people are always the ones that are overweight. I don’t know any fit people that do not always have crazy energy and are productive. The more fit you are the more energy you will have.

Not only are these gifts priceless, but they are also massive cash-savers. Your productivity alone can add thousands to your bottom line each year, well off-setting any costs associated with eating quality food.


Like any good accountant would suggest, you need to look at your ROI (return on in.vest.ment) if nothing else.

What does in a better body, greater health, and vibrant energy do for your life? How can that actually translate into more in.come AND less expense?

You will be surprised.
