dieting seems to be too expensive. i can't seem to persuade my parents to by the food that i would consider to diet with because i need it in surplus amounts and they don't have the money. i can' seem to get away from carbs and trying to get in all that protein seems impossible because my mother threw away my whey cause i have high blood pressure and the doctor said i couldn't use it any more. is there a cheaper more inexpensive way to get the vegetables,protein,etc. ?

You are now obligated to throw out any of her "junk" food that may be stashed around the house.

GOOD POINT!

Also, eggs, tuna, and oatmeal are all dirt cheap.

that sucks that she threw out your whey, i'd go nuts if someone threw my whey out, it's my breakfast at school everyday (i'm drinking one right now, sitting in 'web design' or so they call this terrible class) but it's different since the doctor told her. anyway, try and get all the stuff said above, it's all pretty cheap but me and my older brother (little brother is still too young to lift i think, he'll start in about a year when he's 13-14...he's definatly got enough testosterone to start lifting, he had more damn armpit and facial hair than me lol) destroy eggs/tuna/milk like nothing. me and him at a dozen eggs for dinner 2 nights ago, i used to kill off 4 gallons of milk myself when i was bulking (i don't eat pb really anymore, so i don't really drink it nearly as much), and about 8 cans of tuna everyweek. i feel bad for my mom, she spends so much money on food, about $1,000 every month lol

depends on what your doing alot of people have set meal times and count their calories to meet their specific requirments i have 7 meals a day each at 750 cals so if its cheap to eat tuna and potatoes then work out the micros and eat enough to get what you need
