Can you achieve Fat Loss while Flat Broke?
Yes, yes you can.
As with the post yesterday about Bulking on a Budget, you can also shared some Lbs while saving some pennies.
I alluded to this at the end of the post I wrote yesterday, however is seems people want a little more guidance.
So here you go.
Fat Loss Foods For The Less Fortunate:
– Eggs (Good old eggs make the list again)
– Meat (Speak to a local butcher, or take a trip to Aldi)
– Vegetables (Go to a local grocer or again to Aldi)
…. Can you see a pattern from yesterday?
In short the only main difference when eating for fat loss as opposed to muscle gain is the overall number of calories you are going to consume.
*+500 from BMR to gain muscle and -500 to lose fat, typically speaking.
Admittedly you wouldn’t necessarily consume the same foods but the simple fact is for fat loss you want to concentrate on eating more Protein, more Fibre and drinking more Water.
When it comes to shopping for bargains you will use exactly the same methods as you would for bulking – Discount shops, Lidl, Aldi and you will even find some polish shops have lots of great deals on foods.
No matter is your Bulking on a Budget or attempting Fat Loss while Flat Broke, you can achieve both with some careful planning along with taking the time to search around for some good deals.
I often get questions from people asking for specific answers to their own problems, but they are always left stunned when I remind them that for answers that specific I will charge them for that knowledge.
In short, you know what you should be eating, you know what you should be buying but you don’t. Seek to make a change in your own spending habits first and you ill find you’re never short on money for the foods you need.
Bulking on a budget has long been something overcome by many, it just requires some careful food choices and the avoidance of reliance on protein supplements.
*Shakes will become useful, but if you can afford shakes, you can afford real food.
Here are my top foods for bulking on a budget:
– White Fish
– Cereals (cron flakes in particular)
– Rice Cakes
– Milk (essentially any dairy products)
– Turkey Mince (basically any mince)
– Eggs again.
As you can see from the short list above you can pretty get a variety of foods while shopping on a budget. Though the list is only really there to prove a point, and that point is this; STOP BEING LAZY!
True budget might be a limiting factor, but you an still eat very well while pulling in the purse strings. With all the shops like pound land, Aldi etc you have no excuse for not getting enough food.
*Sit down and write out what you send you monthly wages on each month using these two categories: Necessary & Unnecessary, you will soon see how much money you’re wasting on things you don’t need.
The same is true for Fat Loss. The main foods you need for fat loss are as follows:
That’s pretty much it. If you can’t afford those on budget then perhaps becoming a hunter gatherer is the best option for you.
