At one point in his life, Joe had been laid off from his job and wanted to make some changes. He couldn’t afford a gym membership or fancy diet. So he did the one workout that he could afford and physically manage… walking. He lost over 200 pounds by walking and eating discounted healthy food. He walked five miles a day, every day, rain or shine. He went through his fridge with a trash bag, replacing the soda with water and stocking up on fruits, veggies, nuts and high-protein meats like tuna, chicken, and lean beef. He says, “Not only was I giving myself the gift of better health – I was saving money in the process!”
