SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -

A Los Angeles man is sparking a lot of talk after dropping hundreds of pounds on his 99 cent store diet. Joe Aviance is 42 years old. He lost about 250 pounds from 450 to 200 in just 18-months.

He made this possible by eating healthy at the 99-cent store and by walking 5-miles a day. Also, he did it all on a budget!

With only 20 dollars in his pocket, Joe shows how easy it is to cut fat at the register, giving shoppers a chance to diet without breaking the bank.
