    what you eat as long as you stay within your points?
    Im on a very strict financial budget and go shopping once a week to keep costs down. I do buy some fresh fruit but not as much as i like coz it will go off by the end of the week.
    Im def eating healthier and feel better i just wondered if there is anyone else who is staying within their points but not eating much fresh food and how you are getting on!

    Hi there

    As long as you stay within points you will lose weight. For health reasons fruit and veg are good, but if fresh is proving too expensive, frozen veg is just as good and usually cheaper. It is usually cheaper to buy the fruit and veg that is in season too. I love tinned mandarins in juice myself. Good luck

    I use frozen peas, brocolli, peppers etc. So much cheaper than buying fresh and lasts much longer. Im also on a very tight budget so find that the frozen Tesco light choices ready meals, cooked with my frozen veg, really helps the purse strings at the moment.
