Hundreds of millions of dollars are spent every year on weight loss efforts, but research shows that overweight and obese populations are disproportionately represented by those living in poverty. Yet that’s not just because they don’t have the disposable income for weight loss products and activities. Data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey shows that 30-50% of Americans report trying to lose weight, with a much lower percentage actually succeeding.

One thing is clear: There are many ways to lose weight that don’t have anything to do with the state of your bank account. A program like ph360 provides myriad ways to decrease your waistline without making a dent in your paycheck.

Here are a just a few:

  • Exercising at Home, the Right Way. There may always be a new deal on the hot form of exercise trending this week, but there’s only one kind of exercise that really works—and it’s free. That would be the exercise program designed just for you, that you can do anywhere.ph360 uses your body’s measurements, your health history, your family’s health history, and your report of any injuries of difficulties moving to generate a fitness plan that will actually work for you.While ph360 may recommend specific types of exercise that you can take in a class setting, it works equally well for those on a budget. In your FITNESS Dashboard you’ll find an exercise plan complete with the types of activity you can do at home to stay fit.
  • Shopping Smart & Eating In. Your ph360 FOOD dashboard will provide you with all the details you need to start eating better, shopping smarter, and losing weight. You don’t need a weight loss bar, low calorie meal replacement, or any other expensive and often futile form of dieting.Instead, take a trip to the grocery store with your ph360 FOODS TO EAT list and stock up on lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. The more healthy foods and snacks (like fruit and veggie slices) you have accessible at home, the less you’ll spend money at restaurants and on late night snack runs to the store.
  • A Healthy You is a Less Expensive You. Above all, every penny you spend on preventative health (eating and exercising right for your body, and spending time in the environments and professional and social situations that nourish you) will save you money on costly doctors visits and medical treatments in the future. Because when you invest in taking care of yourself today, you lay the foundation for a stable (and hopefully superb) bill of health down the line.

When it comes time to cut costs and stay within budget, look to the real source of financial strain: A you that isn’t at your optimal state of wellness. And if you’re one of millions of Americans looking for the cheap, effective fast track to weight loss, know that there’s a better way than shelling out your hard-earned cash.
