I know Bacon isn't the healthiest food, but having it in moderation is key. We just don't buy it often because of the price. But I stumbled upon a 2kg box of Bacon Ends for 5.99! Look for these kinds of deals. I've also seen chicken pieces that were in a 3 kg bag for $10. Don't forget to check out the bulk frozen sections, or ask the butchers if there's any meat that wasn't pretty enough to display in packages, that you can get at a discount. All they can say is no.

Freeze your meats in marinades! I buy meat in bulk, cut off the excess fat and pre chop it then I mix up my marinades myself (so that I can use less fatening items and healthier ingredients) lable the freezer bag with whatever you are mixing up then throw it in the freezer and forget it until you need it- this saves me a huge amount of time- all I have to do is pull the bag of meat out of the freezer the night before and I have flavorful ready to cook meats the next evening
I really love this because I can buy meats when they are on sale and the meat has a huge amount of flavor!!
I remember seeing these commercials about this hormone cortisol that is produced when you're stressed and under pressure. It inhibits us from losing weight. So since I'm under a lot of stress and pressure at work, I got a great idea to eat extremely light at work and lost 15 lbs within 2 months.
I ate a wonderful salad or soup with some type of meat when i got home
