    Hey guys, so I’m planning on starting a bulk that consists of appx. 5,000 calories a day, and a macro-split of 426g of protein, 580g Carb, and 103g Fat daily. Any suggestions on how to reach my targets while being a somewhat “economic consumer?” Very ironic because I work for an investment bank, and I’m asking for consumer purchasing advice.

    Thanks guys,

    Anthony

    Well, most expensive macro will always be protein, with fat coming in second (good quality fat) and carbs 3rd.

    This may sound like the most obvious answer but i’d go with a reasonable amount of whey concentrate/isolate and mix it in cream of wheat/rice with some berrys/nut butter.

    You won’t be able to beat the economics of whey protein when you calculate the grams of protein/$ if you go for reasonable brands.

    Besides that- obviously – costco chickens and fish

    Buying in bulk is always the way to go I suppose. Thanks 👍

    Thanks Bryce everything you said is pretty much a spot. To your point sometimes my body feels like it’s more counterproductive to intake those massive amount of calories & macros to a certain “number,” just because a calculation says so. My energy levels become inconsistent and even sluggish. However when I eat at a caloric surplus consistently, and when my body wants to, I do feel like my body reaction is much better.
