My Deal...Am I Going to Be Fine?

Right now I am a long time viewer of this website and everything and I must say I like it alot.

Right now I am layed off from work and it sucks with cash for foods and things for bodybuilding or working out. I get some money every 2 weeks.

But right now I eat eggs, turkey burgers, chicken breast, fish and tuna mostly. Oats, Vegs, bananas, Milk. Sometimes I cant afford protein powders. So on a cut, is it still possible? I keep beating myself up over this. I mean am I going to be fine as long as I keep my workouts in order?

What you’re eating is fine; just keep moving the iron and a lot of it.

That’s what I eat and I’m employed.

You’ll be fine.

If you’re really strapped ditch the supplements and only buy the food you need.

Protein powders are a convenience item, not a necessity.

The key is getting enough protein. The source is secondary as long as it’s complete protein.
