It's been a month since I started weight-training and it's going fine so far. I'm on a Upper-then-Lower alternate-day schedule.
Now, I've concerns regarding my diet. As I mentioned in the earlier thread, my choice of food is restricted to a few places, like Subway, some pizza, some Indian and Chinese. A rough estimate is that I consume 1500 calories a day (excluding supplements). I would ideally like 1500 more. I could simply buys tons of protein supplements. One problem, I can't afford to spend too much. I can't spend more than $120/month on them (also, in which case, I'll have to economize on regular food, but I've some ideas there.)
So, with that in mind, what are good nutrition/calorie strategies (and products)?
