So here is the thing. I would like to know which are the cheapest sources of protein or carbs or fat and if i could buy them cheaper from the internet and have them delivered intact and relatively fast. I live in Greece and foods here keep getting more and more expensive.

Don't know about Greece but here in the UK

Protein - tinned tuna, eggs, whey, lean poultry isn't far behind either
Fat - peanut butter, eggs, tinned sardines
Carbs - probably anything that isn't fruit or vegetables... oats, pasta etc

there's a reason why grain+legumes are popular in just about (if not every) culture: cheap, abundant source of protein and carbs.

Ελα αδερφε,

Borned and raised in Greece as well, my grocery list stops at 50 euros/week 3500 calories /day .

Protein : Chicken breasts( you can buy them from Lidl they have em on discounts oftenly) , canned tuna , steak .
(chicken breasts without discount 2.80euros/2 breasts,canned tuna 1.78/can,steak from a local meat provider they are cheap).

Carbs: Rice , pasta , fruits (now rice i buy 1kg basmati for like 2 euros , pasta for less than 1 euro per pack and fruits bananas ,apples,strawberries )

fat : Olive oil ( Aegean diet ) , peanut butter( στον γαλαξια η και λιντλ το εχει 2.50 ευρο 600γρ ) ,FETA CHEESE.( now every greek family has its own olive oil but if you dont just buy the big bottle for 14 euros and it will last for over a month 3-4 tbsp per days )

I also buy Cottage ( you can find milbona in Lidl for 1euro/cup ) ,Milk and frozen veggies and oat bread .

beans, legumes, brown rice. All totally inexpensive and are incredibly important for your diet. IMO
