On the Radio: Life and Wallet Changing NutritionPosted: January 26, 2011
I was a guest on Dishing Up Nutrition this past weekend (listen online). Again, what fun we had! Here are some pictures from the studio. I mention Kara Carper very often in my posts. She is the nutritionist from Nutritional Weight and Wellness who helped “change my nutrition and change my life.” So now you can put a name to a face.
I also talked (on the radio show) about how eating protein, fat, and carb in balance has not only changed my life, but also saved me money. Here is the breakdown I gave on the show!
Wallet Changing Nutrition
- $200 saved on smaller sizes. Did you realize that plus size clothing items cost about $10-20 more than regular sizes?
- $900 saved on skincare and foundation: Now that my skin is nourishing itself, I save about $50 per month on cleansers, toners, and creams. I also don’t need as much concealer and foundation because my skin is not red and inflamed all the time. Also, this is money saved on prescription steroid creams for itchy spots and rashes.
- $540 on allergy medicine-I was paying $30 a month on allergy medicines.
- $150 on doctor office copays-Since eating the weight and wellness way, I have been to the doctor 4 times, 2 of those times for an annual physical. My immune system is so strong and consistently strong that I barely get colds anymore.
Grand total savings over 18 months: $1790.00 and counting! I pay more for food now, but not $2000 more. So seeing a nutritionist and eating this way saves me money!
