William Reid is the name we will be taking while discussing further regarding this topic with you. This guy completely nailed it when it came to eating whatever he wanted without spending a single dollar on it. Okay, well he did spend $2.75 a year, but that is negligible. Furthermore, he eats whatever he desires in that money. Sounds like a dream to me.
Before going further, let me give you an introduction to the man. Reid is a graduate student in the film and electronic media at the American University and he's practising this lifestyle since 2014.
But how does he make it happen? Is he a wonder man? Maybe. Let's find out his secret below.

"My life isn't tremendously different from other people's," said Reid.
"Other people go shopping for their food; I'll go around back and see what's available," he said. "I'm getting to make the same decisions about what I'm eating as another person would."
Searching for vegetables, eggs, milk and fruits, he hasn't eaten meat since a long time. This is not because he can't find meat but because he wanted to add challenge to the task.
He adds that he gets to make the choices like any other person.
The main purpose of him doing this is that William wants to prove that a huge quantity of food thrown in the US is fresh and edible.
"I think people would be surprised about the level of quality of food," said William. "It actually kind of sends me chills. We have tremendous want and need in this country for healthy food, and we have tremendous waste."
"It's not like I have to go any more often than others. I think people have this idea that there must be a big time commitment, but I go to some dumpsters that are in my neighborhood and, in 15 minutes, get some food and I'm out."
