I'm speaking for myself as someone who is trying to lose excess body fat and having to pay extra for healthy foods and supplements. In other countries, their food is not heavily taxed but here in the Philippines, our food has an additional 12% value added tax. I've also tried to whipped up healthier meals only to pay more than I usually do. Supplements are sometimes a must especially for myself who is prone to colds and respiratory ailments when the weather is changing. There are some that aids in weightloss as well. As much as I've wanted to go back to the gym, the monthly membership is still steep for me and the cost of commuting adds to that as well so I stay at home and just do no gym exercises.
