Cheapest protein sources?

  1. Cheapest protein sources?


    My family has fallen on hard times and I'm using basically all my income to pay my student loans and other various bills. I know mostly everyone has bills so I'm no different I'm just looking for the cheapest protein sources I can buy for my diet. I used to rely heavily on whey powder but the price keeps going up. Would it be worth it to join a SAMs club or something of the sort to get cheap food? Is it really worth it or just buy from a regular store? Any and all advice is welcome. Thanks and God bless.

    I can't afford whey anymore either really. I think SAMs club is worth it, but on the other hand wal-mart is almost as cheap. You can get good deals on a lot of meat at Sams club or BJ's wholesale club. I let my membership expire a while back and am actually thinking about renewing. I rely more on eggs for protein than anything else. If you can stand it, tuna is pretty cheap also. Also if I just can't afford to eat enough protein, I just eat what I can afford. Beggars can't be choosers. You just gotta get through the hard times and have faith.

    I know that's why I'm looking for the cheapest foods to buy with the little money I have left. I pay my **** first

  6. I appreciate the response tho ill definitely look into that, not the stealing response lol the SAMs one

  7. Can chicken breast......70g pro per can, yes the sodium is a little high but oh well

  8. Sam's is so worth it.

    I went protein shopping on Saturday and paid $10 for 90 eggs, $2.89/pound for 90/10 hamburger, $1.89/pound for boneless skinless chicken breast. I bought a week's worth of protein to feed 5 (including steak & pork chops) for $60.
    Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.

    Dang right it is.....I use to buy the muscletech whey, 5 pounds for 27. Their 90/10 is a staple along with the can chicken and cottage cheese

  10. Thanks for all the replies bro beans ill probably have to grab a membership

  11. Yeah..Sams or Costco. Eggs and ground beef are my main sources.

  12. If you like seafood check out mussels in the frozen seafood case. 3.99 for two packs. More protein than you might think

  13. Back in my starving student days I made what I called "tuna casserole" which consisted of the large can of tuna and a box of mac-n-cheese mixed. Hamburger Helper copied this later...Lol

    I did Sam's back in NC, and it was a good investment.

    Now I buy from a small fresh foods store that opened up back home (called Aldi) and buy eggs for 99Ę a dozen and milk for $1.99 a gallon (along with cheap everything else)

    Costco has pretty good deals too. I just picked up 12lbs of bone in chicken thighs for $12 the other day. I think the boneless was $1.99/lb. Plus all the other meats are usually good quality and not too expensive. 88/12 ground beefs was around $2.50/lb so I picked up like 6 lbs.

    Awesome advice right here! Prioritize your needs; you need to pay bills and but you don't need to eat at 1g of protein per pound of body weight. I'm a poor student and I live of Hoki, Tuna, Meat Balls, Lots of veggies (in season are always cheaper) and frozen berries (they're cheap where I am). I've dropped Whey in favour of Skim Milk (11g protein per 200ml serve) and I also eat a lot of canned salmon.

    Costs me about $15 per day to eat which may be pricey to some, but in NZ food is expensive and this is actually really cheap.
