I know what you mean!  My husband doesn’t eat much during the day and then he eats almost all of the food that I cook at night!

Ohmiiigosh—my Fiance is a full time scrounger/hunter/gatherer/vacuum cleaner/garbage disposal/non-stop competitive-eater-wanna-be.

It is insane.  I feel your pain.

And the worst thing is my husband eats all the time and doesn’t gain an ounce!  I think about seconds and my butt grows!

Try increasing the amount of protein & fat he is eating; both of those things help increase satiety. My Fiance eats a lot too and since we are on a budget we set some snacking limits….he loves sardines so we always have those in the pantry and eggs are always in the fridge.

Not buying processed food and buying meat when its on sale helps keep our grocery bill down.

@emily: Oh my goodness, when chicken breasts or ground turkey goes on sale at any store I stock pile so much of it!! I just split everything (one piece of chicken or half a package of ground turkey) into freezer bags and label it with a date. It saves me sooo much money 🙂

We want a chest freezer so bad but we won’t be getting one until we have a house =( Did you know that you can save so much money by purchasing a cow? Well most people that don’t have huge families would buy 1/2 or 1/4. You can get it cut in steaks or ground too!

So you buy part of a cow and they have it already cut up into pieces for you?

@emily: John and Kate (plus 8) used to do that (when they were “poor”). They would buy half a cow to feed them for a while.

If I ate beef that would be amazing!

@MissAsB, thats how it works! Pretty great huh? I’m going to switch to FI’s computer to get the link for a list of farms that sell grass fed/organic beef. Is that something you guys are interested in?

I’m very interested!  Might not be able to do it yet but we hopefully will move in a little over a year and then I can get a chest freezer and a grill!
