    I'm running out of money fast, and having a tough time putting on the pounds. Any cheap idea to get the calories down me? Fuck, I'll eat ergopharm with a spoon every day if I must.

    Your mother.
    just check what you are eating

    i am eating 2 apples a day @ $2/lb, but that ain't cheap. so i am going to start eating 2 bananas at @.50/lb

    savings are easy to find, you just have to play around with what you eat

    I used to make some big shakes and have one a day. 1 cup oats, 3 tablespoons olive oil, 2 tablespoons natty peanut butter, 2 scoops protein, and 2 cups milk. Over 1000 and relatively cheap.

    I haven't had one of those in a couple of months though

    If you want to try it out, start out with one of those every other day for a couple of weeks and see how it goes. That puts an extra 3500 or so calories into your weekly calories while still being somewhat clean.

    ???

    I always listen here. I have alot of respect for everyone on here. I think I've hit a wall with my diet...I don't know how I could possibly train any harder.


    What protein powder do we use? I don't give a fuck about the taste, but the cheaper the better.


    I'm also going to start hitting the chinese buffet circuit on mw&f during my work lunch.

    I'm a master technician of gaining weight, it's the part about putting on muscle as well that seems to be eluding me.

    I buy 25 or 50 lb bags of protein from All The Whey. It sucks making that investment at first, but you save a good amount of money by buying in bulk
