So from all the advertisements in magazines, TV and online you believe that fitness, strength and muscle size is only possible when consuming expensive supplements that line the pockets of health food industry snake oil salesmen? Think again. 

This quote from Kali Muscle-

“I saw what my body had become from daily exercising and eating 4 top ramen a day, a couple of Honey Buns, 1-2 cans of Tuna, and the meals the prison provided. I would have to say that I was consuming about 4,000 calories a day. “

Still unconvinced? Here is a quote from Serbian Street Workout King,  Adam Raw-

“My typical daily amount of food when i was student without money and without much serious knowledge. Still it gave me what i needed to start and progress…

prices are from those times
300-500g oats or rice (about 0,5 $)
200g meat or fish can (about 0,5 $)
some fruit and vegetables (about 0,4 $)
1l milk or 250g cottage cheese (0,5 $)
about 1,5-3l water

total 1,9 $ and your effort is all you needed back in 2006, even if it would nowadays be double at 3,8$ is still worth it.”
