There are actually a few similarities between elephants and debt. Both are big and burdensome and grow very fast. Both stink, and are hard to live with. They also have their differences. One difference between the two is it’s easier to lose debt than it would be to lose an elephant.
We will take small bites out of our debt over time by simply changing how we think about food, eating, and grocery shopping. Let me explain….
In the last blog, I defined a net calorie. What I failed to explain was how few calories you need to eliminate daily in order to become skinny and debt free. (Just a few measly bites less.)
Eliminate 100 calories a day, and you will be 10 pounds lighter in one year, 20 pounds lighter in 2 years, and 30 pounds lighter in 3 years. The good news is you can eat 100 less calories daily and actually feel more satisfied because of a few better food choices, and the speed at which you eat. The best part is you can effortlessly save thousands of dollars a year on food and thus take huge bites out of your burdensome debt.
Here is a website of 100 calorie foods. It will get you thinking. I suggest finding one food today you can substitute or use to help you save 100 calories a day.
