The frugal dieter

I once wrote a blog regarding how to be when creating a food selection in your diet. I really wanted to film a video in 99c store to show folks on how to find hidden gems in this store to stretch your dollar further. However, it is way too crowded in our local 99c store to do so that’s why I just decided to put it in writing.

Anyway, here are some treasures that won’t break your bank whilst improving your diet quality at very economical price. As far as I know, 99c stores and it’s affiliates opt to get stuff randomly, so your local 99c store may be carrying some of these things or not. These list of following things are best bang for your buck as they say as these foods will not only save you money but are also macronutrient-friendly at the same time.


Ham is a good source of protein at very minimal caloric price.


I’ve been a fan of this cottage cheese as it tastes really good thus, it is a good source of high quality casein protein.


Fat free/ low fat milk for a dollar which contains 4 servings each, so you’re getting 10 grams of protein per serving for 25 cents each. Milk is a combination of whey/ casein protein by the way at the ratio of 80% casein and 20% whey.


String cheese is an excellent snack on the go as long as you can keep it refrigerated.


A dozen of large eggs for $1.99 is really a good darn price.


Salad bags for 99c each! You cannot beat this price. Leafy greens especially when you’re on poverty macro budget can be really handy as you can eat a large volume yet is very low in calories.


They even have fat free ranch dressing!


Frozen veggies which can be used as a salad alternative especially if you use my quickie chopsuey on Fat loss cooking channel.


If you’re lactose intolerant, they also have soy milk which has 6 servings I believe.


Tuna cans in water

99c store also carries wide variety of fruits that costs 99c each which includes but not limited to cantaloupes, honey dew melons, raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, watermelons and more. And no, I wasn’t paid by 99c store to write this blog for them.
