Depends on what your maintance level is and how much your eating but you can eat relatively clean plenty cheap and still get in plenty calories.
Weeks worth of oats- $4
6 dozen eggs-$8
2 bags whole wheat bagels-$5
Whole pasta- $2.50 a bag
5lbs ground beef- $15
6lbs chcicen- $12
Two gallons milk- $7
Raman noodles- 25 cents a pack ( not great for you but very easy cheap carbs and fat )
3 bags vegetables- $4
$60 a week that’s not hard to come by if your not smoking and drinking like most college kids on the weekend or going out alot to eat during the week. That’s literally only 10 hours of work at a minimum wage job and I assume your working or getting a allowance of some kind meaning if you sacrifice you can easily afford this.[/quote]
I am also a college kid, and Reid is right. This isn’t really as expensive as it seems. During the summer (when I have to buy all of my own food) I live on stuff like the above.
If you’ve got a meal plan, just try to eat the best things available. I would suggest buying some protein powder to make up for anything you miss. You can get milk/peanut butter/etc to mix in your shakes for more calories as well and this stuff is pretty cheap.
