Need weight loss help but don't want to pay the high price for those diet plans? I learned that it is possible to lose weight by eating healthy, delicious food without spending a lot of money. Here's my personal account on how I got weight loss help using E-mealz and a grocery list from Walmart.

It was December 2009 and my family and I were celebrating my brother’s 43rd birthday. My sister’s noticed that my brother’s leg was extremely swollen. He had tripped and fallen from the bus a few days earlier, so I thought he had sprained his foot or ankle. The next morning I took him in to see the doctor and they told me he had Type II Diabetes and had to change his eating habits to save his health.

This news was devastating, but knew we had to change our eating habits. Since my brother was living with me, I was a bit worried that eating healthier would be bland, expensive and hard to adjust to. However, if I wanted to help him live a healthier life, I figured I’d just have to live with this new way of eating. Immediately I began to check out a bunch of diet plans and diabetes cookbooks. Working full-time and preparing meals every day seemed an impossible undertaking, so I had to find something that was simple, easy to make, cheap and had tasty meals. Thank goodness I found E-mealz.

E-mealz is a site that offers a planned weekly menu of recipes for just $5 a month. Each week you login and click on the menu provided and print it out. Each menu comes with recipes for the main dish, a side dish and a grocery list of the items you will need to buy that week. What’s even better is that you get to choose your eating plan using 26 different menus that include gluten-free recipes, low carb recipes, vegetarian recipes and even Weight Watcher Points recipes. With your recipe plan you also get to choose from the list of grocery stores listed that you may shop at the most.

I decided to try the low carb meal plan recipes using the grocery list from Walmart. I absolutely fell in love with this site because before I never had enough time to write out a grocery list, nor come up with daily recipes (and sides) so that we could eat dinner at home every day. Since signing up, all I had to do now was print the list, review the week’s recipes and go shopping. The recipes listed were very simple to make and didn’t take much time to complete and eat. Also, the meals were delicious and usually had a good amount of vegetables involved which is a staple of healthy eating.

Using Walmart as my grocery store and using the list from E-mealz definitely saved me money as well. Before using the E-mealz plan, I would take my grocery list which wasn’t anything great because I really didn’t know what to cook or eat and I would spend about $150 or more every week to feed 3 people. I also ran out of food by Thursday or didn’t like what I had bought and probably spent another $50 on fast food. Once I started using E-mealz, my grocery bill went down to $80-95 a week and I had delicious leftovers to feed me and my brother lunch for the next day. I didn’t even want to eat fast food because I knew I had good food waiting for me at home or that I was going to prepare. E-mealz is even recommended by Dave Ramsey, a personal money management expert, so I knew the money I was saving was real.

After 5 months making the recipes from E-mealz, I had lost 13 pounds and my brother lost 45 pounds (which allowed him to get off insulin and just take one pill a day for his diabetes). The only exercise that we were doing was walking around our neighborhood which was about 2 miles, about 4-5 times a week. Our weight loss help came from our low carb recipes and exercise, but E-mealz helped give us a meal makeover plan and provided us with the means to eat healthy with the recipes they offered.

I can’t stress enough how much E-mealz helped my family become healthier, save money and enjoy cooking (and even grocery shopping). I would recommend eating from their plans for the rest of your life. The great thing is that this isn’t a diet plan. This is real shopping and real eating that anyone can do if they are looking for weight loss help in a natural, healthy way.

Thank you, footloose! It's sometimes difficult to expose ourselves like this, but if my experience can help another family then I'm all for it!
