Best Broke Bodybuilder Budget Diet
This Broke Bodybuilder Budget Mealplan is for maximum nutrition with a minimum of money. If just surviving is your goal then you can eat for far cheaper by just having rice or Top Ramen. On the other hand, if being fit, strong, muscular, and healthy on a student budget is important to you then this high protein meal plan packed with vitamins, and antioxidants is for you! Students have notoriously bad nutrition not only because they are poor but because they are insanely busy. Its not just students that have these problems as the middle class is rapidly becoming the working poor. A staple of students worldwide are noodles, in America this takes the form of "Top Ramen" which costs about 20 cents for a 380 calorie pack. Also becoming more popular with students is the "99 cent meal deals" offered by fast food restaurants. The problem with both these sub one dollar meals is that they are highly processed and nutritionless. Not only are they unhealthy but completely incompatible with the needs of fitness minded people, athletes, and anyone concerned with health.
This meal planner offers a better way. With very easy to prepare meals, many of which you can make in bulk and freeze, you can have food that is nearly as inexpensive as the cheap, highly processed fast foods but this meal planner is compatible with the nutritional needs of athletes, bodybuilders, and those concerned about health. Inexpensive, healthy, and great for broke student bodybuilders!
But eating health is expensive!
We hear this all the time so lets dispel this notion. Lets take the cheapest food available in America, Top Ramen. Top Ramen is basically just highly processed enriched, bleached flour and costs 20 cents for a 3 ounce bag which has 380 calories. Yes, that is inexpensive and will keep you from starving. If there is a famine, Top Ramen is awesome. Now lets compare this to some meals included in this starving student nutritional plan:
- $1.02 Tuna burgers: 294 calories, 39g protein
- $0.65 Budget chili: 474 calories, 28g protein
- $1.18 Oatmeal and chocolate protein milk: 469 calories, 41g protein
- $1.34 Lentil soup and an apple: 453 calories, 22g protein
Here is a sample of a broke bodybuilder budget meal plan
made by this meal planner which has 2195 calories, 153g protein, 73g fiber, and costs about $4.50. Lets forget the fact for the moment that you would lose all your muscle mass and probably die within a year if all you ate was Top Ramen. To get 2111 calories from Top Ramen, you would need 6 packs which would cost $1.20 and have only 60g protein and 20g fiber. Yes, that is about 1/4 the price but its not real food. Is your health and physique worth $4 more a day?
Please note that this broke student bodybuilder meal plan uses foods that are universally inexpensive in America, Canada, the United Kingdom, and the European Union. This meal planner will just make a meal plan for a single day.
