I save money when I am watching my food too, because I stop going to the snack machine and I stop eating out as much. If I didn't cook though, it might be more expensive to be on a diet than not.
Seems like even 1200 calories would be lower than you need to go to lose weight, at least right now. What is your SP range? I always say that we aren't in this to suffer (or we might get disheartened).
Hugs -- Edith Started at 220, made goal 160 now I have to get there again :-)
Keep Dancing. Joy is the best exercise.
