Default What to eat if you are poor? - 12-02-2009, 12:49 PM

We spend alot of time talking about Protein Shakes. Chicken, Fish and so on but what if you are a college student with very little money. I thought this would be a good thread to help those who cant afford all the high price Proteins.

I will start.

Target has a protein power that is 16.00 that is low sugar, Low sodium, I mean really damn low and is 25 grams of protein per scoop.

Walmart also sells six star creatine and creatine pills that I have tried and they are awesome for rather cheap as well and same goes for target.

You can buy at walmart for low price Milk Thisle, Hawthrone berry, Cq10 and all the pro hormone supports supps there for cheap.

I'm with ya there man, Im also a broke ass college student...

Walmarts Body Fortress protein is $14-16 with 32g protein per scoop, low sugar and sodium. Thats all I use and its worked for me.

As far as creatine, I dunno about Walmarts brand, but if theres a GNC around you I would recommend dropping in there about twice a month and looking at the clearance/discount rack. I usually find GNC's Pro Performance Creatine Monohydrate on there for like $12-20, thats a hell of a deal for 161 servings lol. Yeah it might be a month expired but it will work.

I also get all my Support supps for PH's and shit at Walmart, its waaaaaay cheaper than anything else, and alot of the time they will have the 2 bottles for the price of 1 deal on like fish oil, flaxseed oil, MT, etc.

Walmart also has "Great Value" stuff, its generic as fukkk but its cheap and it helps, Ill buy generic peanut butter, oatmeal, and other foods, stick to name brand on your canned tuna and chicken, you get what you pay for on those items lol.

Eggs, rice and Chunk light tuna.

Costco has bonless skinless chicken breast for 2.69 per lb. I buy new York strips there for 6.59 (not too cheap) but still for the quality of meat it is good. I think the best value is 9lbs of rolled oats for 6.79 the Quaker old fasion oats. The same thing is 2.09 for 1 lb at the grocery store.
Best food value kill a deer with my bow and reuse my same arrow after sharping the broadhead.

If your mind is strong but your body is weak, then you may be filled with purpose and good intentions but have no strength necessary to act on your impulses. You must strengthen your mind to control your body; and strengthen your body so you can always follow the good directions of your mind.

haha i like how you opened up the thread "what to eat if your poor" and went on about supplements.

costco has eggs and boneless skinless chicken tits for cheap, pick up a gigantic bag of normandy style frozen veggies, and a like 16 pack of tuna.

everything else can be got at the ninety nine cent store: bread, lowfatmayo, fresh veggies.

Damn good point Fed. When you don't buy things like soda ketchup mayo... you save alot plus you miss out on fat and sugar with no nutrition loss. Potatoes chicken tuna rice (the real stuff) is much cheaper in the long run. Think of what you save by not getting the sour cream and butter. Thanksgiving and Christmas OK but the rest of the year we do not need all the exta. I think it was Jay Cutler who said eat for function not taste. I feel this will save a buck or 2.

Good point Beans are a great protein source and good for your heart.

Fed you are absolutely right. In most cases College students have it easier and can me better with their diet than those that have the money to buy more processed food. The only thing expensive and it ain't that much about eating right is buying more organic food. Organic food is a tad bit more expensive but it is well worth it in the long run.

So After putting together some facts and this list. For 1 month supply

1) Eggs From Costco
2) Tuna From Walmart
3) 3 Packs Of Chicken Breast
4) Massive Bag of Brown Rice From Costco
5) Oats From Costco
6) Protein From Walmarts Or Target
7) Creatine From Walmarts or Target
8) Vitamins From Walmart
9) Veggies and Bread from 99 cent store
10) Peanut butter and Jelly

For a 1 month supply you will spend about 100.00
