    I eat clean six times per day, and I spend ~$60 per week at the grocery store. The trick for me is to cut all drinks (just drink water and milk), cut all snacks (only keep healthy ones like natty PB), and cut as much processed stuff as possible. I buy a lot of bagged chicken breasts for dinners, whole grain pasta, frozen veggies, etc. For lunch I stick to tuna, fat free cottage cheese, and fat free yogurt. Breakfast is old fashioned oatmeal mixed with protein powder and milk, and also a banana. Snacks include HB eggs (toss the yolks if you can), fish oil pills, and the natty PB.

    Note : I'm not counting the cost of protein powder here, also I usually go out to eat once a week as well (I like Chipotle because you can eat healthy there if you do it right).

    Chicken
    Bacon
    Eggs and egg whites
    Natty PB
    Frozen veggies
    Almonds
    Whatever accessories/seasings i need for the stuff I want to cook: marinara sauce, cheeses, salsa, etc. I'm currently eating a ton of half-assed chicken parmesan: all natural marinara sauce and mozzarella on chicken breast. It's pretty damn tasty.

    Costs me about $50-60/week.

    I think I am spending about the same on the same items listed, but I also but other crap like cookies and chips and other snacks for my daughter, which makes it harder on my not to cheat. So far this past 6 months I am lost 35lbs, so just looking if I am buying the right kind of foods

    lol


    I seriously heard somewhere that victims of childhood sexual abuse turn to overeating as a subconcious way to make themselves unattractive and less likely for future attacks.


    My shopping cart is full of crisco and porkchop sandwiches :wtc:
