Duncan’s Weight Loss Challenge – Part 5 The true cost of my challenge
People who’ve been showing interest in the Body By Vi weight loss challenge have been asking me about the cost. When I tell them it costs £91.00 per month for the 2 meal replacement per day challenge they tell me it’s too expensive, so I decided to break down my daily costs. Not every day is the same so I took a normal working day as a base.
I’ve based the figures on about a pint of milk per day for the shakes, and cost the shakes as (total monthly cost including postage / 60 meals) £91.00 / 60 = £1.52 per meal. I also add 3 bananas to mix in with them or eat between the meals. So here’s the breakdown;
|Evening meal||Same as before|
So I’m saving about 26p per day, and losing weight at the same time!
Obviously it depends on what you eat during the day, but even if it cost me the weight loss would be worth it!
So how about the nutritional side? I’m not a nutritionist by any stretch of the imagination so I’ve plagiarized the below from another blog about the Body By Vi meal replacement shakes.
So, to summarise, it is no more expensive that what I would normally buy in the way of breakfast and lunch. Secondly, and more importantly, nutritionally, I would have to consume 8674 calories of food per meal (as listed above) to get the equivalent nutrients!
