I hate it when I hear fat people complain about how expensive healthy food is. 25 pound bag of rice I buy at Costco: $10. Canned chicken breast: costs $7 for a 6 pack and each can has 3 servings of chicken. Buy beans in bulk. Buy frozen vegetables in bulk. Buy organic fruit on sale it's always on sale. When will fatties learn? Just a rant for you /r9k/.
>Canned chicken breast: costs $7 for a 6 pack and each can has 3 servings of chicken.
You should start buying raw chicken, it's much cheaper if you know what to get. Look for good deals on breast, thigh, or wings. They can all be had for really cheap and you can learn to cook them in the oven or slow cooker en masse for protein for all week.
>obese person tells me i shouldn't smoke, that it's unhealthy
only girls who want my dick say this. they find out i smoke and they're turned off. good, get your fat ass the fuck away from me.
I make a some rice, it depends how much you want, I will put the canned chicken in with the rice while its cooking, then a lot of times I'll add vegetables in as well, it's a lot of bowl style foods, but that's the best part, you can make it Mexican food, Asian food, anything. I eat two eggs every morning and eat steamed broccoli and other cooked veggies for lunch. It's pretty easy, you can prepare everything in the morning.
Also I don't eat too much in a week I only eat 1500 calories, but you can eat a lot of this stuff and get full on very little calories, that's why it's so great. The rice I only eat once a day though because a excess carbs are turned straight to sugar.
I'm also /fit/ so I try to eat healthy but on a tight budget. I aim for 150 grams of protein per day, so usually I'll fill a big part of that with a pound of raw chicken or turkey. I get ground turkey in 3lb tubs for $3/lb and chicken breast for about the same. I'll also get family packs of thighs and wings for $1/lb or less. Canned tuna (only 1 can per day b/c mercury) and whey powder mixed in milk are my other big sources. I drink almost a gallon a day.
For wings just bake them in your oven and mix butter with Frank's red hot to make a home wing sauce. Hits the Buffalo Wild Wing's cravings for only a few bucks.
Chicken breast you can bake a whole tray at once and then use it all week, just season it and eat it with lentils or make something more complicated like fried peppers/onions and vodka sauce/red sauce over spaghetti.
I got a slow cooker recently and will throw 5lbs of thighs or breast in there with some chopped onion and half a box of indian seasonings (like rogan josh)($0.50). Just press go and come back in 7 hours to a perfect meal and literally one dish to clean. It's amazing.
Potato leak soup is another good recipe especially for winter when vegetables get too expensive and shitty (I live in the north).
Idk that's a lot I'm rambling but lmk if you have any questions.
kek, I just had a look at the coke bottle next to me, I usually down one of these per day and that alone is 824 calories, I've also had a bag of Milky Way mini choc bars this morning, seems that was 1632 calories already.
Thx for the tips and quads checked.
>when you don't have die eh betus
feels good man.
What do you drink? Milk, water, juice?
Also, no steak, sausage, bacon or anything like that?
I know I should stop, but you know how it goes
Weirdly enough I can't seem to get fat tho
America is like a disease.
I wasn't American when i was born either.
Now I am.
No direct exercises but I have a manual labor intensive job. Not sure what sort of metabolism I have, probably not malnourished altho I suspect if I ate better I'd probably feel better, just need to get into a routine somehow.
>What do you drink? Milk, water, juice?
>Also, no steak, sausage, bacon or anything like that?
Milk and water, never juice. Juice is just simple sugars, it's just like eating candy and it costs money. I vary between whole milk and skim depending on if I'm trying to bulk or cut.

On the other hand...
Eh, it'll probably balance out, and I plan to quit after med school just to beat the odds. Plus the constant and daily intake of pot'll at least help to keep it from metastasizing if I do get cancer.
No time like the present, I feel that, I worked manual labor at grocery store for a while, now I work at a different store as a cashier. It sucked but I did it for like a year in high school.
>Also, no steak, sausage, bacon or anything like that?
Sorry forget this part. I do buy steak once in a while but only cheaper cuts when it gets on sale. Red meat is expensive and not as good for you because of the fats, but it is a really solid protein source. I avoid cured meats like bacon and sausage for the most part. If I see something on mega sale or I'm out with friends I'll eat them but otherwise no. Bacon is really expensive per lb if you compare it to other meat and it's fatty. Cured meat like bacon has nitrites also and they cause stomach cancer. For breakfast I'll fry up diced bell peppers, onion, and jalapeno then throw that (minus grease) into eggs halfway through scrambling them. That's enough flavor that I don't miss bacon really. Eggs are a super good value.
That's pretty much exactly what my grandma-in-law used to make me before track meets. Shit was tasty.
Also, that's a surprisingly salient answer to a question that's been nagging at me for a while. Thanks.
