How much do you spend on food per day would you estimate? I'm a fat fuck who spends 30-50 dollars a day on food ordering apps and need to do a lifestyle change but I'm curious how much people actually spend on food.

>> No.16343248

Breakfast: $0 (I skip breakfast).
Lunch (weekdays), $4-5 convenience store sammich/onigiri/bento
Dinner: $2-$10 in ingredients (cook dinner, so a very wide range)
I also buy two bottles of water per day, at $1 a piece.

Total then, $8-$17 per day.

>> No.16343270

£130 a month, works out roughly £4.40 per day as a single person. I use an app to track all my spending. Includes the occasional takeaway also hygiene products such as shower gel, toilet roll, razors etc. I could halve that if I really wanted as I am putting on weight as it is. Spending £30 a day sounds ludicrous. Takeout food and sodas don't even taste nice to me.

Start off learning how to make fast food you like if you want to learn then. Cooking isn't all about avocado salads and french toast, it's supposed to be fun. Learn to make your own pizzas, fried chicken, burgers, whatever you like. It will be messy at first but you will get better and it will be rewarding, and you'll save money. Experiment, don't be afraid to try and learn. Slowly introduce healthy things like eggs, wholegrains, and leafy greens into your experiments. I forced myself to learn, no one taught me.

toast or eggs for breakfast

yoghurt, nuts, chocolate, anchovie on crackers, omlette for snacks
dinner is usually more wraps with chicken, chicken soup, yoghurt again, cheese and crackers, etc
Sparkling water as well

it works out like 80-120NZD a week ~around 90usd

plus I spend more on random shit from the cafe, occasional stuff from shops etc

I make 23nzd an hour so it's about, realistically, 1 day of work in my work week goes on food. 2.5 days goes on rent/internet/power etc. Plus I have to buy petrol, clothes, other random stuff.

I spend a 1/3 on food what I spend on alcohol. I usually buy 2 12 packs of white claw spiked seltzer which are about $17/ pack at the local rite aid.

I know, but I walk 25 minutes during my morning commute and again on my way home. In a suit. Carrying a work bag. In the baking humidity and sun of Tokyo. Carrying a liter of water on top of that is kind of a pain. I drink filtered tap water at home, the bottled water is just after I get to work and throughout the work day. I will say that I love the taste of the Suntory water, though. It's much better than my water at home. It's about $500 a year, I know, but for quality of life I think it's worth it.

God, I would kill myself if I spent that much on food everyday.
I don't have any hard numbers since I don't eat out much anymore, I guess it would be my grocery bill or the price of individual grocery items divisible by a number of servings or something.
I would estimate around $5 or less for each meal in a typical day and I stretch meals with rice and I eat leftovers as lunches for work. My grocery bill ranges from $35 to maybe $80 on a biweekly basis depending on my needs and what I want to prepare.

Right now between me and my fiance we are spending $120 (canadian dollars) a week on groceries cumulatively and go out for dinner once a week, about $50-60 average including drinks.

So total food budget per person, per day works out to $12.85.

I think it's pretty telling that going out to eat just one time per week makes up about 30% of our food budget.

We live in an expensive region though, so elsewhere you could get this much lower

For a good education you actually need to research programs and institutions and faculty. You can't just pick a type of career at your local college and hope for the best.

Lunch

Dinner
Huge variety here. Sometimes it’s a $10 pot of escarole and beans that stretches for 2 nights, and sometimes it’s a $20 steak and baked potato.
Average is about $12/serving/day.

So I guess about $15-16/person/day. Which squares, as my GF and I spend about $600 on groceries per month. We also go out to eat once or twice per week, but that money comes out of our recreation/leisure budget. Huge price variability there too; sometimes it’s a Wendy’s $4 for 4, and sometimes it’s a $30/plate hipster fusion spot.

Total spending is about $1000 per month total on food for 2 people. Our combined take-home after taxes is ~$115k, so we spend about 10% of our income on food. We could definitely spend less, but (Wendy’s aside) I like to buy quality organic ingredients from Whole Foods, Vons, and farmers markets.

you don't actually need to learn to cook to eat healthy or cheap

1. Buy an air fryer with a rotisserie. You can now make /any/ meat or fish just by throwing it inside and pressing a single button. It is also way more fucking delicious than ubereats after it spends 0.5 hour in a delivery bag.
2. Raw vegetables, fruits and berries. In US people look at me like I'm a lunatic when I say that I eat raw cabbage or two pounds of raw tomatoes, but it's literally the laziest, crunchiest and most delicious way
3. If you have a trader joe's near you, then it's the best place to buy healthiest frozen dinners you can throw in microwave. $3 including tax for 1.5 pounds of chicken fried rice ready for consumption after 7:30 nuke in microwave.

Contrary to what this other faggot said, the answer is not nepotism. As a child, family was lower-middle class, although nowadays my dad pulls ~160k/yr, and my stepmom does about 120k. I got a job bussing tables in a restaurant when I turned 16, and have worked ever since. I began operating an online retail business (no MLM bullshit, Amazon dropshipping, etc. but a legitimate business that sourced name-brand items from a 3rd party wholesaler) at 18, and worked that on the side through college. Also during college I got a bullshit $12/hr general office admin job working for a department within the university.

Right after graduation I accepted the highest paying job that would hire me. Dispatching trucks. $20/hr. Night shift. Worked holidays and weekends. Because I wasn’t a retard like the no-degree dispatchers, within a year I was promoted to general manager, operating a fleet of about 30 vehicles. A year after that promotion, I left for greener pastures and moved across the country. Took a job as the general manager of an industry-specific rental company. I affected meaningful change and implemented policies that directly resulted in cost savings and revenue growth. Worked there for 2 years; couldn’t tolerate the coke head owner anymore, and tendered my resignation. Coasted on savings and juiced unemployment for 6 months while passively job hunting. After turning down a few mediocre offers, I accepted a pretty cushy 40hr/week, Mon-Fri, no after-hours bullshit position paying $93K + bonuses overseeing assembly line production.

In my experience, the 2 most important things when it comes to making money (other than being born rich, or getting lucky on crypto/stocks):
1) Develop your ability to communicate confidently, concisely, persuasively, and non-threateningly.
2) Grit your teeth and work through bad conditions/bad bosses/bad hours etc. IF, and ONLY IF, there is a definite light at the end of the tunnel (i.e., promise of a promotion or raise).

It's great for a while. I was in Korea not Japan where the conditions were marginally better. The problem is life is so easy there yet ultimately unfulfilling. You can fuck hot girls but you're only an exotic foreigner status symbol to most of them. You can make good money (sort of) for easy work but there's no way to advance or challenge yourself. It's not a very secure gig and nationalist moments can blow up your income or visa. Get tired of being a semi-literate retard in most scenarios etc.
People get addicted to the easiness and start getting scared to go home because muh resume gap/culture shock. In reality they just don't want to resume working hard around people that can accurately gauge their attractiveness. I think about going back all the time but I know I would be very unhappy within a year, at least if I went back to teaching. There are people that stay long term despite that resentment and have wives/kids there. My advice is to go, and either work towards being 95% sure you want to stay or making an exit plan. If you're ESL yourself or not from a stereotypically white English-speaking country though, it will be a lot harder.
