Fiber One cereal
fresh veggies (lettuce, tomato)
Hey....that's my Costco list!!!
sh!t, I forgot yams. I eat lots of those.
My diet is based around skim milk (about 4 gallons/week) and egg whites (a dozen a day).
Kashi Go Lean/All Bran/Fiber-one cereals
Multi-grain bread and bagels
Fat free refried beans
Fat free black beans
Rice and wheat pasta
All my fats come from salmon and flax seed oil. I used to eat natty PB but I like it so much that I usually end up eating too damn much.
im just going to list my bulking .. because cutting is only about 5 foods total
bulking top ten
1 chicken breasts
2 top round beef
3 98% lean turkey
5 whole wheat english muffins
6 egg whites
8 natty PB
9 skim milk
10 the McDonald's menu
Being in college and having a restricted budget, I stick to the cheap stuff:
3)Spoon size shredded wheat
6) Chicken breasts
7) oats and grits
8) 10 min. brown rice
10)Arby's beef and cheddar
pretty much just that over and over again
in order of what I like best (bulk diet):
2- whole wheat pasta (any type..)
3- brown rice
5- milk (lots of it)
6- eggs (all kinds of preparations)
7- tuna (with some salad and a lil mayo )
I probably eat tuna and chicken the most, and for cheat meals, well, I love french fries
Gotta love the grits!!Originally Posted by hypo

2. cottage cheese
3. protein fortified low carb pasta
4. low fat organic turkey chili
8. bell peppers
9. flax seeds
followed by 11-20, oreos, nutty bars, pizza, cheeseburgers, soda and 5 different varieties of ice cream
I rarely touch chicken (price issue mainly), I've discontinued the oats from my diet because I like lentils better (and they're better for you), and I've scaled the whey way back as of late too.Originally Posted by kwantam
Same here. I don't use whey besides pre-post PWO.Originally Posted by exnihilo
i really think its a waste any other time .. although i suppose one could make an argument for use in the morning along with the rest of breakfastOriginally Posted by DieTrying
Brown and white rice
Dessicated liver powder
A few recipes I use:
-microwaved eggs with spinach
-Cooked brown rice with water and a boullion cube... it tastes kind of like ramen soup
-black beans, canned chicken and cumin all mixed up. I eat this for breakfast sometimes.
-Black beans and kidney beans, lean ground beef, canned diced peppers and tomatoes and salt. Dump it all in the crock pot and forget about for a while. If you want it extra tomatoey, use tomato paste as well. It helps if you precook the lean ground beef to break it up.
I don't drink whey at all anymore either. But, I drink a hell of a lot of egg white protein powders. This honestly is what saves me money on food since I have to buy so much of it anymore. I'd LIKE to eat more whole foods throughout the day more often, but with my current income and other lifestyle situations at the moment, I usually drink (4-5) 60gram egg powder shakes/day. I just can't afford anything else.
what brand of egg protein do you use and where do you get it from? is it really that cost effective compared to other protein sources? i only ask because i am a college student on short budget and this sounds like it might need to be added to my diet.Originally Posted by lifted
Well, I think listing other sites may be against the rules here.....but I either get it in bulk, or if I'm in a REAL hurry, I'll buy a jug of ON's 100% egg (vanilla) over at the GNC nearby.Originally Posted by Bacaveli
I figure in bulk it'll cost you around 7.50/lb. That's like not even 2 cents/gram. Can of chicken that has approx. 32g protein costs about 1.50. That's like almost 5 cents/gram. That honestly adds up at the end of the month. Plus not to mention convenienceness....gotta busy lifestyle when I'm not at work.
A regular can of water packed tuna will provide you with around 33.5 grams of protein. Cost you under .50 cents a can.
3. Brown rice
5. Natural Peanut Butter
8. Fruit (apples/bananas/pears/oranges)
I'm going to be cutting real soon, so bye-bye bagels with peanut butter, Double-Doubles, and the other (good tasting) junk I've been eating.
True, but I hate tuna. I must've eaten more tuna in the last few years than the sea actaully has...lol. Sick of that stuff...but is def. a cheap alternative.Originally Posted by Cuffs
I get the majority of my protein from milk and cottage cheese, though I get a crapload of protein from lentils/veggies/pasta/ground flax/etc. I probably get about 250g of protein a day just from the milk and cottage cheese, and at least another 100-150g a day from my veggies. On workout days I generally take an extra ~70g or so on top of that.
I might start hitting up one of those bulk EAA dealies, just to see if there is any benefit to it. I'm pretty sure the extra leucine will be beneficial but beyond that it's tough to say. Of course, if they taste like ass I might not bother (leucine is basically tasteless).
I just bought EAAs, but I haven't tried 'em yet. I'm finishing up my stock of BCAAs. BCAAs do taste pretty ****ty, but there are a bunch of new crystal light flavors that cover up the flavor well. So far the best have been ruby red grapefruit and strawberry tangerine. You can't taste it at all with these in it. I also add citruline malatå, which has a sour acidic flavor that might actually compliment the flavor of the crystal lightn Worth a try. I'm pretty sure Bobo is an advocate of EAAs.Originally Posted by exnihilo
