Most people would suggest that you should count calories, reduce portion sizes and eat lots of fruits and vegetables (fresh, canned, dried, frozen) in order to lose weight. Well, today I am going to show you that you can use prices as well. How? By buying more expensive food.
If you can buy a whole pack of Tyson All Natural Fresh Chicken Thighs for $6.45 ($1.29/lb) at Kroger, then you can probably buy Simple Truth Organic™ Free Range Chicken Drumsticks (4 to 6 per Pack) for $3.86 ($2.79/lb). As you can see here, you are paying more per pound for organic chicken dark meat than conventionally grown dark meat, but the quantity is less, so the total cost is less than the conventional. Reduced quantity would mean reduced caloric consumption.
If you can buy a 20-lb bag of Mahatma Extra Long Enriched Rice for $10.99, then you can also buy a 2-lb bag of Mahatma Organic White Rice for $3.91. You can buy 2 bags, and that's 4 pounds of organic white rice produced by the same company and distributed by Kroger. As you can see here, the total price of organic rice is less than conventional, but the quantity of food is also way less for about the same price. So, you are consuming much less food. In the kitchen at home, you can make the rice last longer or feed more people, if you add more water and make rice porridge. The more water you add, the more watery the porridge gets, and the less calories you consume.
If you want to lose weight, then you have to eat at a caloric deficit. Serving smaller portion sizes can help you eat at a caloric deficit, thus helping you lose weight. One easy way to buy food in fewer quantities is to switch to organic food products. You are using the same amount of money to buy fewer food, cook with fewer food and eat smaller portions. Thus, weight loss will result.
Give this a try for a week or a month, and see how it goes! Just buy 100% organic food products, and check your weight at the end of the month.
