If you don't already have a lot of freezer space in the fridge, you may want to invest in one. I buy most of my meats in the bulk warehouse stores, Costco, Sams, in packs of around 6 lbs or so. I can the 90/10 ground beef in 6 lb trays, preformed into 1/2 lb chunks for at least a dollar and a half cheaper than in the regular stores. Keep out what I need, wrap the rest individually and then freeze them. The turkey patties (93% lean) come frozen in 1/3 lb patties and the Salmon/pollack patties come frozen in 1/4 lb patties. You just pull a pattie out of the freezer, through it on a grill and start from frozen. Takes no time at all, and is much cheaper. I buy most of my veg frozen as well. I tend to loose some to spoilage when buying fresh and in larger quantities, frozen are just as good, and you just toss a bunch into a steamer setup, and it's done in no time.
Jus some ideas on keeping costs down.
Tim

I don't know how much attention this post will get because the thread's pretty much been covered, but i have a new question.

So far i know eating high carb meals PWO (within 2 hours of training) is good to create an insulin spike because
Quote:
the body tends to become very anabolic, taking up all those carbs and amino acids into the muscle cells for protein and glycogen synthesis. And since there's no excess fat for the fat cells, fat gain is minimized.
(John Bernardi)

Assuming i eat 6 meals per day and i have 3 protein/carb and 3 protein/fat meals, so far i know i can have one of my carb meals PWO. What's the best time of day to have the others and why?

I currently have a carb meal (oats/whey/water) for breakfast. Would a protein/fat meal (such as the denver omelete) be more ideal?

Thanks,

Ross

With the exception of PWO, you should get your carbs early in the day, lunch at the latest. That way your body is generaly free of carbs at bedtime and you will burn fat through the night.

Thanks for the reply.

I have currently been having a oat/whey/water shake at about 14:30 and i workout at 17:30 for 1 hour.

Would you say having this shake pre workout is a bad idea?

ross there are studies that say having a pre workout small meal and or shake is def beneficial to you. I used to think that the post workout meal was important but there are studies that say both are important and a pre workout snack/ shake will help you get bigger stronger etc.

I wouldn't call 3 hours before "pre workout". I don't think that far out it's helping your workout. If you had it at 1630 or 1700 it would be different.
