Some people may think that eating well or doing a “diet” program is expensive. But the first question I pose to you is: What is your life worth to you?
Now the only reason I feel good about asking you this is because I have to ask myself the question almost everyday. For example today when I spent $20 on lunch because I was too lazy to pack one this morning so I had to go buy some quick ready made healthy choices from the grocery store. Now the reason my lunch was so expensive was becasuse I took all my dishes home from work to run them through the dishwasher ( I am not good at washing dishes) so I had to improvise, I am currently eating a salad out of a bag that cost me $5. I also bought some pre cooked steak strips to put on top and I bought a veggie tray… In all fairness this is my own fault because if I did it all myself I could have done it for a lot less
But the point that I am making is that it would have been much easier and cheaper to go through the drive through at Tim Hortons right across the street. But I made a desicion and it was a good one, I bundled myself up and drove to superstore and made a healthy choice!
Was it worth it? Absolutly! Now back to my point, a lot of times when people quit the Ideal Protein program they say it is due to finances! Well I call fooie on that!
Now I am not saying this because it is what I do for a living but I need you to understand what you get with the Ideal Protein program. You get 15-20 grams of high biological, highly absorbable protein complete with all of your essentail amino acids for… wait for it… $4/serving!
Now if you are buying that much protein for less then $4/serving it is probably not your best source of protein.
And then there is all the “extra ” stuff you do when you are not on “plan” : drive thru, extra coffee(because you are tired because you don’t eat well), wine, beer, cheese, milk, ice cream, the stop at 7/11 on the way home.
Pop, bread, peanut butter, and the list goes on and on! If you do this program properly it only costs you $12 for Ideal Protein Food, $3-$4 day for veggies and lettuce, and $4/day for 8oz on meat so you are looking at feeding yourself for $20/day. This would cost you about the same if you were buying everything from the grocery store and nothing from me. That is not an unreasonable price to eat well.
And my biggest question is if you don’t do it, what is it going to cost you later? Graduations, weddings, nights out with the girls, growing old with your spouse, travel. Now many of you may be thinking that it is a little extreme for me to say that death can be caused by keeping weight on, but that is not even what I am saying… lets take in down one notch.
Let’s talk about how fun it is to go on vacation FAT! Now I mean any vacation not even just a beach one… think about it, you have no energy and you don’t like the way you look so it is harder to enjoy yourself. And don’t even get me started on energy level! Last time I went to Mexico I was at my FATTEST! It was a nice vacation but we were back in the room by 8pm every night laying in bed eating snacks and drinking!! That is NOT fun! That is wasting half of your vacation time being tired and lazy to be quite frank. Let’s talk about going out with the girls… I have not gone dancing with the girls for 3 years, guess why? Because that was the last time that I thought anyone would want to see me busting a move… Do you get what I am saying!? Being overweight isn’t only detrimental to your health it is holding you back from really living your life. So if you really want to meet your goal this time, cut the extra’s out of your life and make a decision that your #1 priority is making sure that you can afford to put the right things in your mouth. Let’s face it!! You can! Make some choices today for a better you tomorrow!! Your future self will thank you! Mine does everyday that I take a step in the right direction!
The Ideal Protein weight loss method may not be the method for you and I am not saying that it is right for everyone I am just trying to say “Hey! Put good stuff in your body!!!” I don’t care what it is!” Ideal Protein is the only thing that has ever worked for me! I hope you find what works for you!
