Some of you may know that I'm currently training for a BB comp in Oct. I started at a weight of 165 and now I'm up to about 180 in 3 months. This is my post on that.
Luckly my bulking cycle has been very effective with putting on mass, muscle and increasing strength. Conversely though I'm taking a big hit in the wallet. I think this a problem that never really gets addressed in most nutrition articles. I would love any discussion on this topic. Ways to save money buying lots of food,what foods are inexpensive but healthy and high quality, and anyones own personal experiences.
I spend about $150 a week on food and that is on the lean side. I figure I should be spending about $175-200. I also spend very little money on supplements at the moment. I only take Surge, Grow!, and Spike. I find that prices at the super-markets for meats have also gone up over the last several months.
I think when people look at eating healthy I think some people look at money as an limiting factor. The thought process of "why should I go to the super-market and buy food that I have to make and probably end up wasting, when I can just go to the dollar menu at McDonalds".
Anyway I was just trying to spark a discussion on the subject.
