View Full Version : Budget question

12-06-2004, 07:57 AM
I'm a student bringing a new meaning to the phrase "tight budget", so can't really afford all the neccessary foods. However, I do have unlimited access to as much turkey steaks, milk, eggs and fruits I can eat. Would this be enough? Or do I need red meat, fish, potatoes aswell?

Any insights appreciated.

you could do with other sources of carbs as well, say oats or rice which are generally cheap when bought in bulk.

i wouldnt grumble about having those foods with unlimited access :p

I agree with ryuage, you can do well bulking with those foods.

Whey powder is also really cheap. So when you need that extra protein to get your daily total, it's a cheap and quick way to do it. Only when you get into the fancy meal replacement stuff does it get a little more pricey.
