Have you been looking for a diet that works, but won’t cost a fortune? I’ve spent the last few years trying every diet out there, looking for one that will help me lose weight and keep it off. What I found is that everybody is different, and what worked for my friends wouldn’t necessarily work for me.
What I can say with confidence is that eating clean and focusing on what I can eat instead of what I can’t made a huge difference, and helped me improve my figure, and my mental and physical health as well. Read on for a few words of dieting wisdom from Women for the Culture.
How I Learned to Eat Clean
After trying a lot of restrictive diets, counting calories, and focusing on all the things I couldn’t eat, a friend suggested I try clean eating. This has completely changed how I look at food, and focusing on what I can eat instead of what I can’t has been incredibly liberating. Clean eating focuses on putting good food into your body, and doesn’t restrict how much you eat.
Make sure that the foods you buy have simple ingredients that you recognize, and eat a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables. This made it easy to cut back on sugars, highly processed foods, and harmful chemicals that I’d been unwittingly putting into my body. It also saved me a lot of money, since I wasn’t buying prepackaged, expensive foods. I learned how to cook some amazing and simple recipes using natural foods and ingredients, and my whole family loved them! Eating clean has reduced my cravings, and I rarely feel tempted by a sugary snack.
Boost Your Diet with the Right Supplements
As part of my journey to changing my diet and eating clean, I decided to boost my diet with a few supplements to make sure I was getting the vitamins and minerals I needed for great health. A multivitamin is a great choice if you want one product that will boost your diet. I also take an omega-3 supplement, along with a probiotic to help my gut and ensure my body has everything it needs to feel healthy.
Purchasing these types of health products doesn’t have to be expensive. Look for budget-friendly buys on deal sites with specific health stores, and don’t spend a lot of cash before you’ve explored all your options. You’ll be able to find great money-saving deals on vitamins and supplements, and you won’t need to go over-budget to boost your health. The money you save buying whole foods in the grocery store will more than cover the cost of supplements, and you won’t exceed your household budget.
Improving Mental and Physical Health
I wanted to change my diet to improve my figure, but I soon discovered some amazing side effects to my new way of looking at food. Eating clean, and not restricting my diet, improved my mental and physical health as well! I have way more energy than ever before, and I can easily keep up with the kids, take the stairs without losing my breath, and feel great during long days at work.
My mental health has also improved, and I got a great boost in self-confidence. Addressing stressors in your life is important, because stress can interfere with losing weight, according to U.S. News & World Report. Eating clean has made me happier, and I don’t feel tired or sluggish anymore. I sleep better and can feel that my body and mind have enough nutrients to keep me healthy and happy.
When I discovered clean eating and what it could do for my figure as well as for my physical and mental health, I was over the moon. Changing my diet was the best budget-friendly decision I’ve ever made, and now I buy whole foods and spend my money on the right products. I no longer restrict myself, and now my body and mind look and feel better than ever before.

About Brittany Fisher|Financiallywell.info
After working more than two decades as a full-time Certified Public Accountant (CPA), I decided to compile all of the knowledge I’ve accumulated about taxes, personal finances, and general financial literacy into one place: I’m writing a book! I’m thrilled to announce that my first-ever book will be released in early 2018. I hope it will help people of all backgrounds, incomes, and walks of life find success in their financial journeys.My goal in launching this site is to take that one step further by offering my knowledge in the personal finance space to anyone who may benefit from it. Not only can I help others this way, but I can further add to my own knowledge and continue to learn. As a CPA, there is no better way to understand the domestic (and even global) financial environment than by talking to people, learning their experiences, and find out where there are disconnects in public knowledge of finances. Who knows? Maybe I can help fill in some of those gaps!
Getting comfortable with carrying some debt is a natural part of running a business. But as a result of the pandemic, many businesses are and will continue to carry too much debt — in amounts that could ultimately jeopardize their ability to stay open.
