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

I understand this completely. Same thing happened to me with chicken breasts. Just the thought of eating another one made me lose my appetite.Originally Posted by lifted
Milk and cottage cheese are a good protein source also. Except for cutting, due to the sugar content. Not all that bad though.

The CIO in milk is great. I drink about 4 gallons a week when cutting and dieting.Originally Posted by Cuffs

when you guys say dextrose, usually in your PWO shake, right?
How much dextrose are you supposed to put in your PWO shake?
05-02-2005, 02:52 PM
I tend to follow a 2:1 ratio. So 40g Pro 80g Dex. Some may not agree with this approach, but I've had success with it.Originally Posted by cable626

Nah, lol, it's the same type of diet where you cut with Count Chocula and KFC.Originally Posted by Elizzard
I believe that dairy has it's place but should also be cut towards the end of the cut to help make you look even harder.
