Looking for a "Nutritional meal"
 
I am trying to cut back on my spending because it is taking a toll on my wallet and paycheck. I am currently spending $70-90 a day on food an I want to find a solution for this. I need to maintain 8-10k calories a day to maintain my weight and gain alittle bit; I powerlift and play football so its kind of hard to maintain the weight.
Is there food I should be buying from the stores that will help and how much do I buy for the week? I need 6 meals a day, so 24 meals for work out days and 9 meals for non lifting days....I also have Mutun Mass for shakes on work out days and non work out days.
Any help would be appreciated!!

Do you plan your meals in advance?

Rice and beans are cheap, add in 80/20 ground beef with all the fat, some cheese, and you're set.

I buy ground beef 100-200 pounds at a time, which really reduces the price.

10k calories on clean food like chicken would definitely get expensive.

For starters avoid lean meats. You also want to increase your consumption of fatty foods, and use more cheese, sour cream, nuts, etc.

You also want to add in stuff like cheap boxed mac and cheese and Ramen noodles.

How many cals a day are you pounding? And what types of foods? Give us a specific meal plan so we can help you streamline.

I second Fazc's question...I think I could eat like a king for $20 a day.

Talk us through a typical day Rob, something isn't adding up here.

Ditto this, because I can't understand the 6 meals but 12 meals thing, it's either 6 or 12, doesn't matter how big they are.
