    Haha, I get what you mean but I've actually started to like tuna salad. It's pretty bad without the cottage cheese though.

    Everybody who's a serious lifter knows bulking is expensive. Being a student living off loans really limits what kind of food I can afford. I'd rather eat something else, but I don't have that money. Also, dirty carb sources are very expensive so I just eat very clean.

    i think some of you are missing the point that dieting is as much of a psychological thing as it is physical. equating "interest in nutrition" with "not eating junk food" is weak. how do you quantify an interest in nutrition? having a better body composition? surely he can attain a better body composition if he pays attention to his macros. are you going to quantify the micronutrients he has taken in?

    dude wants to eat some cheesecake and oreos - so what? as much as i question the need for something like CBL, if eating junk helps in compliance, i see no need why someone should be eating white rice and yams instead because of some value judgement supported by questionable logic. this is up there with josh ripping on guys doing dumbbell shrugs because they aren't functional and people doing them all need to grow up one day.

    Bulking on about $8 a day, don't think its too hard. Lots of eggs, potatoes, pasta and sainsburys basics brand stuff. Also butter and oil on errything. Diet is pretty much completely clean because I'm too poverty to afford junk food, except sainsburys basics icecream because its like $2.50 for 1.8L, which is a fuck load of cals.

    Yeah, if you're smart about it and plan your purchases, you can save a lot.

    I live in Sweden so food is going to be a bit more expensive than UK and a lot more expensive than in US. Spent around 250 dollars last month on food, which is about the same as you. Ground beef, fish and different kinds of nuts the most exprnsive stuff I buy. I could cut down even more but I think it's bad to just eat a few types of food for a long time. Last year I spent half as much, but then I didn't know anything about eating and lifting.

    It's more like 350 when I count eating out etc.
    If I would spend a grand a month I'd live on the street. It's all loans.

    Also, being on SF and all is quite telling for having expensive side interests, DJing and vinyl collecting for example.

    About $800 a month for food including eating out.

    I like carb back loading. Not because of anything related to meal timing or insulin spiking or anything like that.

    I like it because it makes you eat a lot of food. Which many guys don't do because of some hidden fear (some less hidden) that they'll become fat.



    I personally like eating all my food throughout all hours of the day. Works gloriously for me.

    Good point. I like the idea of dieting while also eating a shit ton of food. I enjoy not eating like a rabbit.

    Helps a lot of guys get past the fact that if they added up the calories and averaged out for the week, it's pretty much the same thing as how most jacked and/or strong guys eat throughout the day (calories/macros-wise).

    I wouldn't be surprised if CBL was secretly created just for that cause.

    I've had powerlifters and trainers (not average trainers.. ones I actually respect), told me that they've told some people who don't eat a lot to eat 6 meals a day because it'll help boost metabolism to keep fat off while building muscle. But they're were just secretly trying to get their weak/skinny ass to eat more frequently to get more calories in hahaha

    Related: my roommate and i invited 70+ people to our apartment for a thanksgiving potluck. Even If only half of those people show up, it's going to be a total shit-show (we're expecting like, 40 people in our fairly-large-but-not-huge 2 bedroom apartment).

    I've made 1 slow cooked turkey breast and have another in the slow cooker. Also made a fairly large batch of acorn squash and pumpkin soup. Gonna roast some pumpkin seeds from the making of seed soup as a snack, and brussel sprouts that i had lying around.

    A turkey is brining now and i'm going to roast it I've been on my friends to bring side dishes rather than booze or a bottle of wine.

    If the slow cooker turkey breasts comes out good i might add it to the repitior of "meats i make a lot of once"
