    Not quite sure that even possible. I buy chicken breasts (1.88/lb), 80/20 beef, rice, potatoes, oats, egg whites and fruit each week and i usually spend $50-65 easily. I'm around your size to so I'm sure are calorie requirements are somewhat similar.

    Chicken breast: 8-10$/kg, steak varies from 10/kg up until 15$/kg. 12 large eggs are usually about 3$, for 6 litres of egg whites i pay 28.60$, loaf of wholemeal bread: 2$, 1kg of lean kangaroo mince: 7$, australia is pretty expensive to live, but yet again households usually receive large income which is enough for us to live. Like for example the area i live in renting a house is usually about 350$ a week... i get youth allowance from the government because im a uni student, i get 265 a fortnight, plus i have a part time job so i manage haha.

    well rice, potatoes, oats, eggs alone is about 10$ which is pretty cheap..

    Well if anything it would be better for people to suggest staple meals that are easy to make cause i work and its real time consuming.

    Actually im @ 200 right now but i have only been training for 6months. You're far more ahead then i am.

    Brown rice: Cheap and calorie dense + great carbs.
    chicken: cheap and high protein
    Eggs: no explanation needed
    oatmeal: cheap, great carbs eat it whenever during the day
    wholemeal bread: cheap and again... good carbs
    low fat ground beef/mince: if you fry this up, add a nice pasta sauce, garlic onions & herbs, add it to some wholemeal pasta, you got a high protein, good carb meal
    sandwhiches are the best... go to your deli section, buy low fat meats and just live off wholemeal bread sandwhiches haha
    natural peanut butter: tastes amazing, calorie dense and goes good on bread, have this as a snack during the day
    tuna: cheap, high protein tastes good with crackers
    just any sort of lean meat really haha and complex carb
    and of course, make sure you're eating your veges!

    oh and last but not least, low fat milk, have it with your oatmeal, protein shakes and whenever you want, it has protein and the extra calories will help at

    make sure you're drinking plenty of water aswell

    you can use whey protein and milk as your main source for protein. Its actually very cheap per scoop. Also eggs

    For carbs, Oatmeal, Rice, potatoes.

    For fats, just keep the yolks in the eggs, and you'll get some fat from milk.

    As for micronutrients, This gets a little expensive with fruit and vegetables. But banana's are usually cheap, apples. And i buy frozen mixed veggies. Its like $1 for like 3 cups of veggies.

    Well, it's not really expensive to eat 500 calories more than you did before, and a little bit more protein.

    Go to youtube and search Nick Wright bulking on a budget. He gives several tips on how to get all your food for less than 40 dollars a week.

    ^^ frozen mixed veggies are great. really cheap
    if you can hit up costco or sams club or BJ's or one of those bulk superstores, you can get rice and oats in massive amounts for a great price.
    also I don't think anyone has mentioned tuna. I usually grab a ton of cans whenever theres a sale at the supermarket or i get them in giant packs at costco.

    In terms of meat, I'll usually pick up stuff whenever theres a great sale on, or I've got some extra money whether I'm going to eat it for the week or not, and ill put the rest in the freezer.
    also, I don't know if alot of people do this, but I don't mind eating a can of garbanzo beans, black beans, or pinto beans. they have a good amount of carbs and protein in one can, and ill usually put them with rice. if you look around you might be able to find those for cheap.
