Healthy Weight Gain » IRONMAN.com | Triathlon Swimming | Scoop.it

Regardless of whether you want to gain, lose or maintain weight I think the final image comparing the costs of supplements compared to the cost of real food is worth a look. Many people complain that it is too expensive to eat healthfully, however, sticking to the perimeter of the supermarket, really is cheaper than filling your cart with anything from the center aisles. Personally, the only things I get from the interior of the store are: canned fish, canned pumpkin, coffee/tea, frozen vegetables, and during heavy training GF granola.

Ingrid Baldwin's curator insight, March 11, 2014 2:46 AM

 On the upside, I can ride!!
