A diet can be a step towards frugality and thrift, or an
unnecessary expense. Don't waste your money on fad diets or pills. Fad diets
deprive your body of important vitamins and minerals, and pills can be
dangerous. If you don't change your lifestyle, you will just gain back any
weight you've lost. Eat less, exercise, and the weight will come off.
In fact, with most people, all you have to do is put less food into your mouth,
and the weight falls off.
Here are some other frugal dieting tips.
- Drink lots of water. It
fills you up and you will eat less.
- Eat a good breakfast and
stabilize your blood sugar to avoid craving sweets for energy.
- Eat lots of fiber to fill you
up and keep your system working properly.
- Eat a balanced diet, and be
sure to include protein, carbohydrates, and lots of fruits and
- Get plenty of exercise to
boost your metabolism.
