I've recently lowered my hours at work so I can focus on other things for the time being, mainly body-building, BJJ, MMA and learning instruments!

.

Anyway I have money but I was just wondering what are the best value for money foods out that if you were to divide there cost with how many meals you get out of it... For example cottage cheese and egg whites are great value for money...I get 5 meals out of a 1kg of egg whites, and 3 meals out of a tub of cottage cheese and the cheese adds flavour to the egg whites so I don't have to douse it in sauce!

.

So yeah I'm just looking for the best body-building staple foods that have the best value.

.

I'l be using muscle foods to buy by some of my food if any of you know any specific foods on there that is good value for money, the talapia has caught my eye on there.

.

Cheers!

whey protein is cheaper than any food
I've cut whey out completely whilst I'm on a cut, nothing wrong with whey protein, like you said its cheaper than food, but i'd rather have thoose allocated calories spent on food rather than a shake as I struggle to stay under my maintence level as it is and the shakes don't fill me up as good as food.

Chicken from lidl is great value for money, or bookers chi ken £20 for 5kg, also just buy value eggs from somewhere. Rice and salad broccoli or pineapple is my favourite, also bags of salmon or tins of mackerel.

Just go bargain hunting write a list of the foods you need for the week and don't buy anything else on the list. BB on a budget easy to be honest I do it. Work part time just now and have a small family.

If the time comes when you cannot afford a gym membership.... simply lift buckets of water, like Bertil fox used to do when he was banged up inside to keep himself in shape. Think of it as a homage to someone with a killer physique.

I never had any problems, they do taste slightly different to fresh but nothing major.
Only problem is frozen chicken breast with added water is not the same as a fresh one (as they add salt and water then freeze it so u actually pay for ice). Probably, when that taken under consideration, fresh breasts bought in bulk would be cheaper.
