1. Walk  An inexpensive and easy exercise many can do is walk. All you need to do is to get a good pair of shoes and walk four to five days a week for 30 minutes or more. If you can't walk outdoors, try the local indoor mall before the stores open. Many malls open early for walkers. Do a Google search to find free areas in your city or town where you can walk.

5. Buy frozen and canned vegetables You can't buy organic vegetables right now because money is tight, consider frozen and canned veggies. Canned and frozen vegetables can have just as much nutritional value as fresh vegetables and can taste just as good.

6. Eat a small bowl of soup before your meal According to nutritionists, eating a bowl of low-calorie soup before your meal can help you decrease your calories you take in because you will eat less with the main meal.
