    High Cal, HIgh Protein diet on $35 a week...

    ...does such a monster exist? Looking to take in roughly 3000 cals, 200gs protein a day. Can I do that on a food budget of $35 a week?
    Plus, can anyone point me to some good meal plans aimed at a ectomorph looking to gain around 25lbs or so of LBM?

    Cheers and thanks.

    if you are trying to put on weight and short on change, just start buying up as much fucking pasta as you can. That and get some chicken on the bone with the skin because it is cheaper, and de-bone/skin it yourself and have at it.

    To add-on to what P said, if you are bulking it isn't necessary to go high on protein, and it is pricey anyway.

    Dark Chicken bone and skin still in tact is cheap, cans of tuna, cheaper cuts of meat as a treat maybe like a flank.

    Eat shit loads of carbs as p stated. they are cheap Pasta, Potatos, Rice.

    Yea only one I've seen but I know its jsut a franchise. It's a crappy chipotle, Chipotle is a god and always will be.

    Compared to Chipotle, the meat at Qdoba is crappy and overcooked + thinner, and the sour cream si watery. Plus the fajita peppers are slimy. Still though, very tasty for 3 dollars.

    thats roughly 250 calories per dollar I think.

    I was under the impression that high protein is always important when lifting heavy. The building block for muscle recovery and all. I wouldn't say I am bulking like a competative bodybuilder, I AM more concerned with strength and speed vs mass. However, I do want to get to a predetermined weight of 195-200lbs.

    you could eat 6 cans of tuna a day w/brown rice and a couple of jars of pb for under 35 bucks a week. put it all in a blender, add water and enjoy the tasty treat!

    Why peanut butter? I thought that was just a fatty snack. High carb/cals?

    "natural" pb is a good fat source if used in moderation. i get around 40 servings for around $3 or so to a jar.

    But couldnt I jsut take a fish oil pill or something? Should fat always be in moderation, even on a bulk. Or is there enough carbs and cals in the pb to cancel out all that fat. Cancel out meaning that the pro's outweigh the con's.

    Yea but my question is, do you really need that much fat in a bulk?
