Need a good meal plan for bulking.
I'd like to know of a good meal plan for bulking. I'm about 6 foot 210 and want to get up to 240 with low body fat. I have a small gut right now but it's not big. I'll have about $410 a month to spend on food.

Can anyone help? I'll be moving out soon and need to know how to budget food.

I would do it for you but I'm short on time. Run a search for threads started by me and look for one titled drinkable meals (may be titled liquid meals, I'm not sure). Anyway, it's an article about making meal replacement shakes.
Drinkable meals on a bulk are a must in my opinion. In place of a meal that would take me 10 minutes to chew up, I can blend a shake with similar nutrition that takes me 10 seconds to chug. (I drink two meal shakes a day that are around 700-800 calories each).

THanks I checked it out. It's useful, but I was really looking for more advice on what foods to buy, what to buy in bulk, the rough price of each item, ect.

Hey Derrick, I agree with TypeO up there. Liquid is where it's at.
I have a 1200 cal shake for breakfast and a 1000 cal shake before bed every day. I try and eat at least 2 other 6-1000 cal meals during the day, I like ham sandwiches, chicken, rice, chili, etc. Just get some good shake formulas, I like oats in the morning and cottage cheese at night

Yeah see the reason I asked for a meal plan is because it's been hard for me so far to even get in 200 grams of protein a day, even with whey protein, granted I don't get the big tubs of whey in bulk yet because I haven't moved out yet. It's sort of a complicated situation basically I get ssi and foodstamps and when I move out my room mate is only making me pay for cable and part of the gas and electric. So, until I get out of college I have to make do with what I have. I'll have I'm going to say roughly $250-$300 to spend on food, plus $150 in food stamps. I just hope this will be enough and I'll still have some money left over each month to buy other things like cloths and games and stuff.

Big shakes are a must, imo and for others I know as we just can't force ourselves to eat "food" that much, but downing 2 big shakes... no problem, and you can blend some stuff together to make one hell of a meal out of it (if you search on here, there's some heavy shake recipes). Also you can make your own bars to add to pretty cheaply, look up my thread in this section for the new bar I made, think it was about 500 cals per bar (i listed the specs in the thread) and taste so damn good.
here it is: Made a new bar for bulking

Try Eggs, buy the 18 packs, i usually get three for a week, 7-8 eggs in the morning
Oats for morning carbs or blended into shakes
Fruit, apples are cheap and healthy
Veggies, peppers, onions, broccoli, carrots are all reasonably priced and have different health benifits
Chicken, buy in bulk...6-7lbs a week for me
Fatty Beef, cheap, cook strain pad strain pad strain...removes most of the fat ends up close to 96/4 beef
Beans/Potates for easy cheap carbs
Thats usually what i buy a week...70-80$

I love shakes because of there convenience. But I try to get most of my calories from whole foods. I see alot of guys depending on shakes too much. I use to do it myself. Specially, when I was single and didn't have a wife that cooks.

On top of those recommendations, I say buy tilapia filets in bulk. I always keep a couple bags in stock for post workout meals if I don't have time to cook chicken. Two filets and a serving of brown rice and veggies gives you over 40 grams of quality protein and adding the rice and protein you're all set on calories and carbs. Where I live we have a place called Gordons Food Service nearby that a lot of the local restaurants order all their bulk stuff from. I walk in there and it's like heaven

Brown rice takes longer than chicken for me to cook
01-03-2011 04:11 AM
Brown rice does take a long ass time. I keep a couple big boxes of this brown rice that only takes like 8 minutes though for those times I don't have time to sit around and wait. I'm trying to get better at making a whole bunch for the week though.

I cook a whole big bag of brown rice at once, lol $1.32 for 2lbs at walmart.
Just use a big huge pot with a lid. Start with the rice and water together bring to a boil reduce heat to low but not too low or else it will cook all weird, cover the pot. On my stove I cook it on like the #2 or #3 setting for 35 minutes or until the water is gone. Its enough to last a while!
I also buy "bone in" chicken breasts by the case for about $45 for a 40lbs at a meat place by my house. They are actually better than from the grocery store because they aren't "enhanced with up to 12% sodium solution" Who wants to pay for saltwater? I feed the uncooked bones to the dog thats why I get bone-in
Trader joe's natural peanut butter is dirt cheap and tastes amazing its like $1.79 for a jar. I usually buy 25 when I'm there, lol.
Walmart also carries big bags of birds eye brand frozen veggies for pretty cheap. You could buy the stir fry veggies and mix in some low sodium terryaki sauce for some tasty meals.

i start college soon and i need ideas of what to bring, here at home its easier to eat all day but I'll be in college. I'm thinking of just bringing some kind of shake with me, but I'm wondering if it will go bad. I have a 3 hour class twice a week.
