How much does it really cost to eat as cleanly as possible without having to deal with extensive meal-prep, cooking, and shopping? If you could only pick the best, most impactful food choices and supplements, what would it run you? What’s the true cost of infinite laziness meeting perfect health? I was pleased to find that although it’s not a cheap date, it’s also not completely unrealistic. Like most things, there’s immense value in quantifying and defining exactly what you’re after – to live as healthfully as possible, on your terms, without exerting too many calories in the process (lame pun intended).
I’ve attached below the spreadsheet I encourage you to use and apply for yourself, along with a direct copy and paste of my inputs. To get the full measure of what your dream life costs, add in the rest of your living expenses (rent, travel, fun, etc.).
Plan instead of dream. Quantify don’t wonder. See it and achieve it.
