Yeah, I've been having a taste for steaks/red meat lately and it adds up really fast.
I'm gonna have to get back to chicken/tuna/possibly protein powder as food prices continue to rise.
I actually discontinued alot of my supplement purchases to pay for all that meat, lol.

I've increased my protein intake so that I don't lose any muscle mass while I am cutting (trying to anyway). I gain fat easily like you wouldn't believe it. I've taken up a ketoish diet with only trace carbs, and moderate fats.
I'm trying to do this 'recomp' everyone is talking about, losing fat while gaining muscle...naturally of course.
Its not a ton of protein per se. A lot of that cost has been coming from steaks.

What I've been doing as of lately is buying (3) broil chickens at a time, plain, no sauce or anything like that, and pulling all the meat off of them and all the skin as well.
I spend a decent amount of time pulling it all off, then afterwards ziplock bag the whole thing. So there you have more fresh chicken waiting in the fridge.
I don't like using powder shakes if I don't have to. I have an extremely sensitive GI tract or something, but just about all protein powders make me have diarrhea to some degree. Whey, Anabolic Pump, some creatine powders, etc. It must be IBS or something along those lines.
I've only managed to find 1 brand/type of protein I can actually take after trial and error for so long.
This is mainly why I stick to whole foods.

Whey Protein isolate
...........those are the supplements off the top of my head that have given me severe GI distress...........
it sucks as i do not have nearly as many options for protein/supplements as most ppl do.

I'm not sure if I have IBS, allergic to milk, or lactose intolerant, but I have an issue with dairy products and a sensative GI tract.
Probably b/c I'm asian.

I figured I was probably lactose intolerant due to being asian.
I think Xtend is causing me GI distress from the glutamine.
I noticed Anabolic Innovation sells a flavored BCAA without glutamine and I've contemplated checking it out.
Even one scoop of Xtend will make me run to the bathroom in about 1 hr. Solid laxative for me, but that's about it.
So as of right now I do not take any BCAAs. This is another reason why my protein bill is so high.

100-200. But I try to rationalize that vitamins and protein don't count. The protein is usually in the afternoon instead of lunch, so I'd probably spend more if I ate out.
