Need Easy and Cheap Meals to Fuel Your Gains and You Are Not Sure As to What Foods Work BEST? Here’s a short list of Weight Gaining Foods on a budget.
Listen let’s face it, building muscle isn’t cheap. There are so many factors involved when you want to gain weight and build muscle. You need to build muscle on a budget so you”ll have extra cash right?
Plus it takes a lot of time and discipline to get a bodybuilders body.
On top of all the food you have to eat, you need the money for supplements, clothes, and gym fees if you belong to a gym.
This can be quite costly, but there are a few inexpensive foods you can buy to build muscle leaving you extra cash in your pocket, sound good?
Before we begin you need to understand that in order to build muscle you have to be in a caloric surplus.
Here is a formula that you can follow.
If you are under 12% body fat follow this formula below:
- Take your body-weight x 19=? Example: If you are 150 pounds that would equal 2850, roughly depending on your height and age.
- Protein will always be 1 gram per pound of body-weight a day no matter what body part you train.

The Best Place To Buy.
If you belong to a wholesale club where you can buy in bulk, you can save money and time by making less trips to the supermarket.
One thing I would suggest is to buy all your bulk items at the wholesale store and buy all your BOGO’s (Buy One Get One Free items) at your local supermarket.
This can save you big time!
A can of tuna is an excellent source of protein that can run you about .99 a can.
Make sure to buy the one low in mercury content.
2. Cottage Cheese
Cottage Cheese is packed full of protein. If you get the biggest size, it has about 80-90 grams of protein in the entire container.
What this means is you don’t have to eat the whole thing to get your protein requirements, you can save some and spread it out over the next few days.
3. Greek Yogurt
Greek yogurt is the healthiest yogurt you can buy.
It also has the most protein out of the other leading brand yogurts plus…you guessed it, more protein.
One brand I recommend is Chobani. They will cost you anywhere from .99-$1.29.
Eggs are great and easy to make.
You can make theses anytime of the day to get your daily protein requirements.
If you live near a farm see if you can get some eggs from there, they are probably the healthiest.
5. Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
Chicken is one of the items you may want to buy in bulk.
Buying chicken every other day can be costly at your local supermarket but at a wholesale club you’ll save in the long run.
Potatoes are a great source of carbohydrate to bulk up on a budget.
I recommend eating sweet potato, baked potato, and red potato.
Potatoes will run you about .99-$1.29 a pound.
Bananas are really good for you pre training and they’ll only cost about .69 a pound.
You can’t beat that plus you can take them anywhere and everywhere you go without the hassle of having cooked meals.
Cereals aren’t the healthiest choice but its a quick carbohydrate for those really struggling to put on weight.
If you start gaining to much weight you may want to back off a little at a time.
Buy rice in bulk and get a rice cooker.
Having a rice cooker is a must and overtime it’s cheaper than buying all those frozen rice bags.
Buying rice in bulk will last you a while and keep you fuller.
Eat a lot of Brown rice as it is a slower digesting carbohydrate.
1. Peanut butter
Fats is what increases your testosterone levels.
Peanut butter is one of the cheapest fat sources and all you have to do is eat a couple spoon full at night before bed.
Peanut butter will last you a long time
Nuts are also a great and inexpensive food to gain weight and build muscle.
You only need to eat 1 almond for every 10 pounds of your body weight.
For example: If you weigh 200lbs, you only need to eat about 20 almonds.
Avocado is one of the best fat sources you can get at a very low price.
Avocado spoil pretty fast so make sure to buy them as you need them.
You don’t want to throw those away, you are trying to save money not waste it.
