    Nutrition + Workout program advice

    Hello everyone, It's been awhile since I have worked out. I got back into it after a long break from an injury with my shoulders. I would like some advice on my nutrition intake and workout plan. I'm in the bulking stage right now. I'm a broke college student and can't really afford expensive things. My budget is $150 a month.
    My nutrition: 6 peanut butter sandwiches (on wheat)
    3 servings of pasta + 3 cans of tuna
    1 serving chocolate milk
    2 pieces of wheat bread (trying to avoid protein farts, 34g of fiber )
    nitro protein powder
    roughly 3,200 calories and 160g of protein

    My workout: Chest Back -> Legs -> Arms -> Chest Shoulder -> Back Arms -> Legs -> Rest //every other day alternate between abs and 10 minute cardio.

    Hey there! I’ve been there, done that. I’d just like to chime in my 2 cents and say that it depends on your body composition. if you’re overweight with excess body fat, you should be cutting and eating lots of healthy protein with weight training to define your muscle and lose as much fat as possible. Since you didn’t specify, I’ll assume that you’re of normal healthy body fat levels. In that case, being a broke college student, don’t worry at all about exactly what you eat to get your macros in. 160 grams protein is good, make sure you get your carbs and calories in and don’t worry about fats. Being a young broke college student, eat as many $2 McDoubles as you can to fit your macros in. Hell, I’m 36 and I still eat junk food to hit my macros and calories. Fast food is your best friend right now, cheap and plenty of protein and calories and you’re still young enough to have your metabolism burn off all of the nasty crap. Just lift heavy and right and most, if not all of your calories will go to your muscles. it doesn’t matter where it comes from, just get enough protein to build and carbs for energy and you’ll be golden

    Your tuna intake will lead to mercury poisoning.

    You need vegetables and fruit in your diet.

    That's a really weird workout split... Why do you have an entire day for arms?

    I was trying to limit my shoulders to once a week because I have a shoulder. At least, until I build up some shoulder strength. I was thinking of maybe switching it to arms and shoulders and just chest the next day.

    I take a multi-vitamin to get the nutrition I need from fruits and vegetables. I didn't know about the mercury poisoning, thanks for telling me. What do you suggest I replace tuna with?

    That's not how it works. Eating vegetables and fruit does far more for your health than taking a multi. You also need it for the fiber and phytonutrients. Eat your veggies and fruit.

    Chicken breast. Salmon. Sardines.

    Why thank you. I usually get the right amount of fiber in my diet. phytonutrients, I would be lacking in. I can barley afford to eat the required Macros so buying the fruits and vegetables would be a bit difficult.
