Bodybuilding on a Budget - It Doesnt Have to Put Your Wallet in a Wheelchair


As you probably remember the last time you looked at a proposed grocery list or visited the nearest supplement store, you realized you needed to take out an equity loan first in order to get your month's supply of food and supplements.

Believe me?

I've had my fair share of large bills especially when I'm trying to bulk up and gain weight.

Am I right about this so far?

Don't' worry? there are some really overlooked and rather inexpensive methods to get all the food you need without breaking the bank. But I have an even better idea? let me just start off with a quick list of foods that you can find at most grocery stories and warehouse locations that are cheap and are excellent sources of protein, carbohydrates and fats.

Low Cost Bodybuilding Foods (no particular order):

1. Tuna
2. Nuts
3. Olive Oil
4. Whey Protein Concentrate, in bulk
5. Pasta
6. Chicken legs
7. Beans

Of course you'll want to get servings of fruits and veggies but normally it's the other foods that are expensive in bulk. With just the above foods, you can get many of them in bulk or for discounts and have plenty of wholesome foods for your bulking, cutting and bodybuilding endeavors.

By now, you're probably wondering?

Okay, that's a nice list of general foods I can use but I am taking some supplements. And they aren't so cheap. I'd like to try everything I see in the latest muscle magazines but I really only have time for what works. Where's the cheap list of supplements?

Inexpensive (best bang for your buck) supplements:

1. Multi-vitamin
2. Fish oil
3. Whey concentrate
4. Dextrose
5. Creatine Monohydrate

Fact is?

I try a lot of supplements myself. I'm curious. I want to know what works and sometimes I stumble across something that is worth it. But the above list is the basic supplement list that I always return to no matter what. It's part of the vitamin closet in the kitchen. If I have no time, no money or no desire to try anything new, I know that above is the only stash I need to make any gains I'll need.

So let me summarize and review?

Bodybuilding on budget is real. If you look for specific foods that are great sources of protein, carbs and healthy fats and mix and match, you have a really well rounded selection to make many meals. No matter if you are on a bulk phase, cutting phase or just want to eat healthy, it doesn't have to be the most expensive things you've ever done.
