supermarket.

@girlDog

I don't eat take out. I buy all my shit from the supermarket.

Fresh fruits, tea, vegetables, natural meats, nuts, etc are all far more expensive than things like frozen pizzas, milk, chicken tendies, potato chips, soda, etc.

I'll grant you that rice, beans, and oats from your post are typically not expensive, but living on that alone does not provide a balanced diet.

there is no guarantee any of that will be healthy tho.
fruits and veggies are choked in chemicals every day of their life some of which is outright scary. meats are pumped full of antibiotics growth hormones and steroids. peanuts will be full of contaminants and toxins too (they are not actually nuts tho).

if you addressed that to me, yes blood cholesterol levels are unrelated to dietary cholesterol intake but show some connection to being overweight and inactive lifestyle.

you can eat all the eggs and some if you work out.

Because actual food is getting scarce. Modern food is filled with artificial ingredients, sweetners, chemicals, antibiotics and generally low on nutritional value. It's a cheap replacement for real food. This is how you keep billions of plebs fed. You want to eat real food, you have to pay accordingly

$10 a day
If you eat for more than $5 you fucked up

Regular Day for /fit/izen
Oats (50 cents a bowl, conservativly) in whole milk with a protein shake
Rice, Frozen mixed veggies ($1 per bag, 1 bag is 3 servings), chicken breast
BBQ Chicken breast in the slow cooker with black beans, mash it to make a sandwich. Use 2 burger buns.
Rice, oats, and dry black beans ARE PENNIES per serving
Chicken breast is $7 per 3 lb bag, each bag is 8-9 breasts (about 3 days worth, so $2.33 worth of chicken breast a day - your greatest expenditure)
Hamburger buns are $2 for 8, you'll use 2 a meal so $.50
+ $.25 for use of spices/condiments

It's fucking simple people.

You're fucktarded. I bet you think the only "healthy" food is sold for $12/lb at whole fools and it has to be free range organic local and blessed by a shinto priest.

Chicken IS one of the healthiest foods available. /fit/ is more or less correct, except their views on fruit. If you ate a /fit/ diet of fruit, veg, chickun, oatz, beanz, eggz, and brown/wild rice it would be extremely healthy and cheap. That is more or less my diet, and I eat on about $25-30 a week.

You sound assblasted. What, did /fit/ laugh at your skinnyfat body and call you a manlet? They're correct 9/10 times. Tell me, what besides nutrient content determines healthiness of food? Woo and magic and hipsterness? Memes like gluten-free? Being sold by a "healthy" company like whole fools and trader joes for 3x the price of anywhere else for the same fucking shit in a fancy label?

Last weekend I made lentil and bacon broth.

180g of Turkey bacon
400g green lentils
I Carrot
1 onion
1 stick of celery
2 garlic cloves
2 vegetable stock pots
1.5 litres of hot water.

That feeds 8 people and cost me about 7 pounds.

I can get a piece of Salmon for around 2.50€ (more expensive because it's preseasoned). Add a bowl of rice and a bowl of Miso Soup and you're at around 3.30€ for a filling and healthy meal.

Another example is tuna pasta with cherry tomatoes. Costs me around 3€ for a huge portion and really only consists of Pasta, tuna and tomatoes

muh outdated studies

yolks are mostly bad for cholesterol for a very minimal amount of the human population, its actually perfectly healthy to eat 5-6 eggs a day, with yolks, unless youre a minority.

eating healthy
Keep your frog posting faggot opinion to yourself you fat fuck. It's all about moderation, there is no such thing as "healthy" foods that's something the companies use to promote their products; sure some foods are better than others and you can only get vitamins and minerals fron some foods but as long as you control the amount of the food you eat there should not be a problem.

I live with my parents, (just turned 18 and not in uni) and i get no say in what they buy when shopping. Usually frozen pizzas; chips, burgers, fries, cakes, rice, fried chicken and i eat out at least twice a week; yet i'm sitting here at 12% body fat at <60bpm.

I do hit the gym around 4 times a week but any sport is fine.
And this is all besides the point that "healthy" food is expensive, sure it takes longer to cook and prepare but if you actually did your research it would cost roughly the same

Fruits and veggies are cheap if you buy them in season and don't get fancy shit. Rice, beans, and sandwich bread form the basis of the ultimate poverty diet and things like chicken breasts are cheap meat.

Because when you're trying to eat the healthiest for the cheapest amount possible eating isn't about "feeling good" or "tasting good food" anymore, it's about what it's meant to be about. Staying alive. Stay poor.

How is it expensive? I live off of microwave brown rice at 50p each. I hoard low fat minced steak at £5 a pack (750g) cut it before i freeze that shit so i don't have to defrost the whole thing. I stack up on tinned veg less than 50p each. Any additives like jalepenos are kept in jars of vinegar so they don't go off. All of my flavorings are kept in granulated form (onion, garlic, mushroom etc.)

granted it doesn't taste the best but it keeps me fed and healthy. The only thing i splash money on is flavored green tea... salted caramel flavor to be exact.

It's easy when you know how OP. You just have to make your money last longer by buying food that doesn't spoil quickly. Flavor and enjoyment should be the last thing on your mind when it comes to eating healthy and saving money.

@King_Martha
The myth that dietary cholesterol is to blame for raised blood cholesterol has been around for some time. It has even infiltrated dietary guidelines. In particular the USA have long advised the restriction of dietary cholesterol to below 300mg per day. However last year their advisory committee said that cholesterol restriction was not necessary and that instead saturated fats are to blame for high cholesterol. Their report provides the basis for the updated 2015 Dietary Guidelines from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
even the fucking us where it all began is now officially backpedaling
In fact, when researchers at Harvard Medical School analyzed data from almost 120,000 men and women, they found that eating the equivalent of an egg a day did not increase the risk of heart disease or stroke. A more recent Harvard Medical School study, published in 2008, also found that otherwise healthy men could eat up to seven eggs a day with little risk.

yeah the egg industry is behind all this all the doctors are bought sure.
