I can attest to that. When I ate more processed foods and other junk, i tended to eat more. Once I went to a more plant based diet, I found that the fruits, veggies, and nuts really filled me up. Now I spend about $50 a week on food as opposed to $125. I feel better too.
Awesome news! Isn't it great when healthy changes are beneficial in other ways?

I often thought that eating healthier would be more expensive, you know, fresh veggies and fruits, healthier dinners than the $1.00 banquet meals, but I've noticed that actually using serving sizes and not eating a box of cereal in two sittings really makes a difference in my food bills. I really started watching what i'[ve been eating in the past two weeks, eating healthier and fresher foods, I haven't even used my microwave in about a week, I haven't bought any diet pop and cut down on fast food, I think that I saved about forty dollars in that time period. I know that I'm feeling a lot better both physically and emotionally but having extra money definitely makes me feel great, let's me start saving for all of those clothes that I want to buy after losing some of this weight.
