How to eat healthy and lose weight with Aldi

April 24th, 2007 at 05:36 am

No, I'm not entering the blog contest. Wink Actually, I'm not even starting this project til May 1.

I signed up over on the Let's Lose A Person thread, and am getting nowhere. I need some way to jumpstart my weight loss, some way to make it interesting enough to stick with. The accountability of blogging helped me to get out of debt--maybe it could help me lose weight, too.

So, for the month of May, I'm going to eat nothing but Aldi food and see how it affects my weight and other health factors. I made a doctor's appointment for May 1, so I can get official weight and blood pressure numbers. And I'll be getting some long overdue blood work done this week, so I'll know where I'm starting with cholesterol and such. The trick might be getting a slip for more blood work after only a month!

I'm actually looking forward to working within a limitation like this--I think it can force you to be more creative. And being creative is usually fun. Wish me luck!

    I actually dreamed the other night I was starting back on Atkins, maybe I should....

    I shop Aldi all the time - at least, I go there first and what I can't find there I get at Kroger's. I would think you could eat very cheaply and well. The produce is better looking and cheaper as are the staples (beans, flour), cereals, canned goods, dairy, etc. They've been sprucing the Aldi's in my town with more "gourmet" objects and meats. I suspect this has to do with Aldi's being a sister store to Trader Joe's, according to the manager at the Aldi where I shop. Anyway, good luck. You might not find everything you need variety-wise but you surely will do fine. I like the freezer section - they have a dessert thing with no preservatives, an apple strudel and "fruits of the forest" thing for 2 bucks. Don't know about the calories but it seemed to be a decent dessert.

    Cindy, I know I'm going to find enough in the way of desserts--not sure that's a good thing! We really like their ice cream cones with the fudge centers, their diet fudgsicles aren't bad, and this week they have Edy's frozen fruit bars. Also, I saw the little angel food cakes are back again, I guess because it's Spring. Smile I've been meaning to try the strudel...
