Unfortunately we are limited by our finances – ultimately our
financial situation dictates what we can and cannot afford to do. Admittedly
following the right diet, paying for a gym membership and buying the
supplements can become a costly hobby, yet I really struggle to see how a lack
of money can prevent you entirely from being healthy and transforming your
body. Before some of you think I am arrogant, and am talking from a strong view

We live in a world where food has become an expensive commodity;
of course this was going to happen because we all need it which feeds the
supply/demand cycle. Whilst some healthier food choices are more expensive, I also

excuses stop here!!
If your budget doesn’t allow for supplements then don’t let
that be the reason you don’t start a transformation. I would recommend getting
yourself a protein powder though, this is relatively inexpensive when you work
out the cost over a tub’s life time.
There are the key areas which people who feel their budget
limits them can address and overcome their obstacles. Remember, we all have to
