I'm just curious to see how much people here spend on food per day. I tried to put some numbers to my own food intake, and was surprised to find it was nearly $9/day - and that assumes I only ate food that was prepared by me, as opposed to eating at a restaurant (although I don't do that too often).

So as a quick survey, I'm just wondering:

1. About how much you spend per day on food, and supplements that count as food (i.e. whey protein, gainers, MRPs - basically anything that has a caloric value)

2. About how many calories you eat per day (just ballpark it if you don't use fitday or anything like that, surely you can guesstimate to within 1000)

3. What types of things you typically eat - it doesn't have to be too specific - i.e., milk, oats, McD's cheeseburgers, 5 scoops Nitrean, etc.

Hmmm... I never thought about it per day. I usually spend about $500 a month on food (sometime a little more), so I guess that comes to a little over $16 per day.

for me its under $5

carbs from oats and pasta
protein from tins of tuna, eggs, turkey mince and a little bit of whey from PWO
fats from walnut oil and fish oil caps, and EV Olive oil
whey from a bulk supplier as well (plain old unflavored for me)

I buy one meal a day at least; So, $7 on average. Protein shakes I won't even try to count. Its too difficult to count everything that counts as a calorie, IMO.

1. I would say about $7-9 a day when cutting, $10 - $15 a day when eating above maintenance.

2. 1500-3000, it varies.

3. In a day, 4-6 scoops of Nitrean, about 2 cups of skim milk, 4 eggs, 2oz of cheese, coffee, chicken, beef, pork or fish with veggies, 2-4 tbs of peanut butter.

Maybe $8-10 a day. I usually spend about $60-70 a week on groceries, sometimes more if I get a great deal on something or decide to buy really good stuff.

1) I spend $60 / week plus a couple of meals out, so somewhere in the $9-$11 range.

2) ~2500 lately, 3000+ when bulking

3) Anything and everything. Pasta, potatoes, beef, chicken, pork, rice, brocolli, salads, whole wheat breads, etc.....and the occasional McD's Double cheeseburger :)
