Basically, I just reversed how people eat. I eat a substantial breakfast, lunch is my biggest meal, and then I don't eat anything for dinner. Or, if I'm really hungry, I'll drink some juice.
Now that I don't have to make dinner, I don't go grocery shopping as often -- and when I do, I buy things that can last, like apples, raisins, oatmeal and soup. So the savings is huge. I used to spend $100 every week and a half, and now it's not more than $30 every two weeks.
I've been doing this for a month and have already lost 10 pounds and I feel better than I have in years.
