I made a thread about dieting on a budget using lots of beans and rice and the cheapest cuts of protein available to me.
for less than Â£5.00 I was able to find a diet plan to get:
Pork fillet 500g
Basmati rice uncooked 300g
1 can pinto beans
1 can kidney beans
1.5tbsp olive oil
Birseye frozen bag broccoli and carrot 160g
herbs and spices
Total fat - 58g (15 saturates)
Total carb - 312g (15 sugars)
Totl fiber - 36g
Total protein - 177g
Yet using bulk protein powders and using the exact same meals apart from removing the meat and adding more olive oil and very minimally reducing the rice while spending less per day I get these macros:
Total fat - 55g (8 saturates)
Total carb - 280g (17 sugars)
Totl fiber - 43g
Total protein - 210
The vegetarian option is quite alot higher in protein and almost exactly the same in everything else.
It is also quite a bitch cheaper which is odd considering it is so much higher in protein.
Other than not having the tastiness of meat is there anything wrong with eating like this?
