Hello!


My name's KiKi.

I've always had a love affair with food. I never was bigger than 150 lbs until after my son died (when I was 16), and I made some bad decisions, nearly got stabbed to death, and wound up in jail.

I gained 40 almost 50 lbs in jail in 3 1/2 months...ridiculous I know.

I'm living a completely different life now and want my old body back....or maybe even a better body than my old one, huh? =)

I work in the adult entertainment industry as an independent contractor. I am one of the few "big" girls in the industry, which is hard in itself.

But it also makes me unique in my eyes, and a rarity.

I want to LOVE my body. I want to wear cute, sexy clothes. I also want to have other opportunities career-wise that would be open to me if I was thinner...

Eating Right on a Budget
I'm having some financial issues right now and of course healthy food is a priority. I've done some research on how I can save money and still eat right.

Any tips or suggestions are completely welcome!!!

Here are mine:

Buy your veggies FRESH and UNCUT and UNCHOPPED. Not only does this increase the fresh factor but the nutrients are still there as well and it is cheaper.

I've been looking at the prices of the whole veggies vs the pre-cut ones and there is an easy $2 difference!

Also don't buy the salad mix in a bag! Buying a head of romaine and ice berg lettuce and cutting them up yourself will save you at least $2!!!!


Protect your investment! When you buy the veggies, prepare them to eat when you get home! That makes it easy to put together a salad or whatever and helps when you get the munchies and visit the fridge!

Put them in produce bags to keep them longer! Well worth the extra couple of bucks. It'll save you plenty!

Buy meats in larger packs and freeze!

Buy the large eggs vs the small eggs.

Look for generic versions of favorites such as Jello, Chicken/Beef/Veg Broth, Heavy Cream, Milk, Eggs, and Cheese. I have found by doing this that not only are the generic products cheaper and taste just as great, but they sometimes have LESS carbs and are more suitable for my diet!

For example, the Wal-Mart brand of Heavy Cream has 0 g of carbs vs my old favorite, which had 1 g.

I found Food Lion Brand sugar free jello and it was just as tasty and saved me $1.70!

I buy jello every few weeks, so that 1.70 really adds up!

If you're looking for meat to cook immediately, check out the mark down section! I've gotten GREAT cuts of FRESH meat that were close to their expiration dates just by doing this. They tasted wonderful and were easy on my pockets.

For example, I just bought a pack of Smithfield smoked pork chops (5) for $3!

I eat them for breakfast sometimes!!!

Buy seafood at seafood stores instead of a regular grocery store. The food is generally much cheaper and fresher too.

Any suggestions from any of you?
