    Question Poor student protien sources.

    So trying to keep food bills down.
    Have currently found that 60% at least somtimes more of my protien intakes come from whey.
    I eat lentils and beans and wholemeal carbs which add to protien values but i dont count these...and get a variety of fruit and veggies.

    Is it an issue that such a large % comes from whey as i know it is absorbed quicker its split between meals.

    Ideally i would eat more real food sources of protien but i think veggies>meat? And sub meat with whey + the odd bit of chicken tuna etc here and there.

    Poor law student here.

    What I do is first shop at a place like Aldis.

    I buy protein from some company when on sale, like right now I’m stocked up on 3 tubs, got all on sale( but not on sale with the crappy store brands) this sites got some pretty good sales just need to watch out for it.


    Further,
    1. Tuna
    2. Bagged chicken, fresh taste better but bagged frozen will be half the price for the same (if not more) amount
    3. Walmart Bagged tilapia (and throw in some salmon to diversify fish). The bagged tilapia is like 10 servings of fish for like 15 bucks.

    4. The milk and eggs (Aldi is cheapest for both by far, next is Walmart)

    Fair.
    Lentils incomplete conflicting arguements on this due to bioavailabiltiy and completeness of amino acids.

    And whey how high can you go?
    What % protien from whey vs other sources?

    Completeness of protein has been debunked. Nothing wrong with lentils as a protein source.

    You don't need any whey. If you like whey I'd suggest having 30 gram protein from whey per day. Whole foods provide more micronutrients and fiber.

    Eat a diet rich in vegetables, fruit, legumes, whole grains, some meat and some dairy.

    You only need 0.7 gram protein per lb. That's super easy to get.

    Realistically, there is not 'maximum' amount of whey, it's just a processed milk product. You could get all of your protein from whey if you wanted, the reason we do not recommend that is due to the micro-nutrient content of whole foods generally being better. If you hit all micro/macro/fiber needs from other foods though you could use whey for protein.

    Buy in bulk. I get chicken 10kg a time from a local butcher (sometimes cheaper than supermarkets) for £3.50 per kilo.

    As mentioned above, you only need 0.7g per lb body mass so even if you were huge and 250lbs, you'd only need 175g protein. That is only £2.11 worth of chicken a day.

    Literally cheaper than a coffee.
