Does healthy eating cost more? I sure don’t think so. And, what I hear time and again from Slender For Life™ hypnosis weight loss clients is that they are saving money on their grocery bills by eating healthy. So, this U-DUB study makes no sense to me. When you stop buying meat and dairy, when you stop going to fast food joints and when you stop eating junk food and processed food it is amazing how much money you save. I frequently hear from clients that even with my paying me they are still saving money with healthy eating. Save money and starting eating healthy with weight loss hypnosis.
Eating healthy food costs more money in U.S.
Reuters, August 4, 2011: Eating healthier food can add almost 10 percent to the average American’s food bill — and that is just to boost a single nutrient like potassium. Researchers from the University of Washington looked at the economic impact of following new U.S. dietary guidelines, which recommend eating more potassium, dietary fiber, vitamin D and calcium, and avoiding saturated fat and added sugar.
In an article in Health Affairs published on Thursday, the researchers reported that eating more potassium, the most expensive of the four nutrients, can add $380 to the average person’s yearly food costs. Americans spend about $4,000 on food each year, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
At the same time, getting more calories from saturated fat and sugar reduces overall food costs, the study said. The study also found that it is more expensive to eat more dietary fiber and vitamin D, and that people with higher average incomes were more likely to eat healthier food.
