➡SUPREME ASSAILANT FIT TIP⬅FIVE “$CHEAP$” PROTEIN SOURCES
If you’re looking to transform your body, then protein is perhaps the most important macronutrient you could ever have on your side. It’s the macro with the highest thermic effect of feeding (i.e. you burn calories by eating it), it helps you regulate insulin by causing the secretion of insulin’s antagonist, glucagon, and it provides the vital building blocks for building muscle and recovery.
BUT, it’s also typically the most expensive macronutrient, and THAT’S the problem I’m here to solve today with the below 5 DIRT CHEAP protein sources:
#1 – EGGS. A dozen eggs provides 72 grams of protein for about $1.69. At that rate you can even go Organic and have an extremely inexpensive meal.
#2 – WHEY. At anywhere from 50 cents to $1 for 20 grams you just can’t go wrong. One of the purest, most bioavailable protein sources available.
#3 – BEANS AND LENTILS. A can of beans or lentils packs about 45 grams of protein (and fiber!) for about a buck!
#4 – COTTAGE CHEESE. 48 grams of protein ready to eat out of the container for $1.69 – not too bad!
#5 – TUNA. Perhaps the cheapest of all lean protein sources, a can of tuna yields approximately 42 grams of protein for just under $1.
Getting your daily protein requirements (I recommend about 1 gram per pound of lean body mass daily, depending on individual goals and needs OF COURSE) doesn’t have to be cost prohibitive by any means; in fact, it can be DIRT CHEAP by getting a good portion of your daily protein from the above sources.
