I watched the Biggest Loser online last week, like I usually do, and I was shocked! They had them go shopping for their own food, and since the “real world” shop on the budget, the contestants only got $10. a day for their food. Seriously? $10. a day?!
I feed 7 people a day all meals and snacks. I also send my father in law supper every night. So according to the Biggest Loser calculations, I should be spending 73. a day to feed my family. That’s $10 for the seven of us, and $3. for my father in laws supper. That would be $511 a week.
What?! I spend only a small fraction of that every week. I think there “real world” budget is seriously flawed. How about you? Do you think $10. a day per person is a “real world” budget? Or are you like me and can feed your family healthy, from scratch food for a fraction of their budget?
