View Full Version : Worse than I thought

I... had no idea.

This is me eating a 'lot'. It's a gym day.

How do I turn this around?

Ok, @#%$ turning it around. It ain't worth salvaging. I've read the list of 'what bodybuilders eat' but I obviously need a lot of help.

And, on a more practical note, how much will it cost to eat properly? I've budgetted in 5 Canadian bucks a day (35 a week) for groceries. That's about 21 American. I can go higher by a bit ... but the cheaper, the better. I only make 500 CAD a week.

Do you have stores like Costco hear in the states. Where you can buy mass amounts of food for cheap? You could buy tuna, noodles, chicken and such.

Buy in bulk.

my groceries cost about $120 every 8-10 days. Bulking at 6000. I could likely get that down to about $90 if I bought in bulk. But it gives you an idea of where you MIGHT be one day.

120 every 10 days? 360 a month on groceries. I can afford that. Kick in the teeth over the 150 I'm used to but nothing that will have me filing for bankruptcy. That's high end, too... 6k isn't in my immediate future.

Now, how do you manage to cram in 6k calories in a day? Apparantly I have issues hitting 2k.

While bulking I'm pretty much at $10-20/day, depending on my choice of foods. 6k is pretty easy if you learn to love milk. :p

I hate to say it but "junk" is cheaper than quality food. Something to keep in mind if you're looking for cheap extra cals (just know what you're doing).

I've lived off 'junk' for years. (Seriously... until recently I'd hit Wendy's for a Big Bacon Classic Combo with fries and a frosty like 3 to 5 times a week). I'm looking to change that.

Dropped 50 bucks on some healthier things today. 50 bucks went damn fast.

Alright, I see where you're going with this. Stay away from the junk. It's just a last resort anyway.
