I saved $3,574 and lost 80 pounds without Dieting

Piggy bank in shopping cart

I don’t mind spending money but I hate wasting money. I have said that more times than I can count. It especially applies to anything that may help with weight loss.

We have all paid for weekly meetings, meal plans, exercise equipment and other programs that didn’t pan out. Achieving permanent weight loss would be priceless so anything that seems like it can help must be worth it. I once went to a presentation on bariatric surgery where people were lining up after to take brochures on how to finance the $30,000 cost.

Of course, after many failed attempts, the chance of success seemed to get closer and closer to zero so I became reluctant to spend any money at all. Then I had a theory…

 

Costs

Whenever I start a weight loss program that costs money, I always justify the price by saying that I will save money on food if it works. I’ve never stayed on a program long enough to find out if that is true.

Other Programs

Below is the approximate monthly cost of several popular weight loss programs.

  • Weight Watchers – $50
  • Noom – $50
  • Slimfast – $75
  • Medifast – $341 (includes food)
  • Nutrisystem – $430 (includes food)
  • Jenny Craig – $636 (includes food)

My Solution

My idea was that controlling my anxiety would help me lose weight. I decided to try a low dose CBD lozenge to make that happen (check out the links at the bottom of this page for more details on my experiment).

  • CBD Lozenges – $55 per month

 

My Results

 

Weight Loss

The most important thing was that my solution worked. The CBD lozenges took away not only my anxiety, but my need to diet. After 1 year, I lost over 80 pounds without dieting. (I have lost over 100 after 18 months and I am still losing.)

Savings

After 1 year, I ran a report in Quicken to see what I spent on dining and groceries the year before and the year after I started taking CBD. I was shocked by the results. I had saved $4,266 on dining and groceries the year after I started. Subtracting the cost of the mints, I had saved $3,574.

I finally lost weight and I made money doing it.

About Us

At Marvelous Calm, we explore the benefits of using low dose CBD lozenges to help with anxiety. These lozenges can have a beneficial effect on anxiety and appetite as well as helping with insomnia. Without anxiety, food regains its proper place to relieve hunger. Dieting is no longer necessary for weight loss. We believe the calm provided by CBD leads to better physical and mental health.

CBD affects everyone differently. But studies have shown that CBD may help increase concentration, maintain healthy stress levels and reduce the desire to “stress eat”. CBD does not make you feel high, just calm.
