Here I am June of 09 right before my competition.
When i went on a 0-low carb diet, i had to consume a huge ammount of protein. I was blowing through chicken and steak like crazy. Its cheaper for me to ask my mom to bring me home a 6 dollar burger, they contain over 50 grams of protein and its free considering my mom buys me any junk food i want lol.

It takes more money doing it the pure protein way, but who says that this is the only and best way???
You can diet down just by restricting carbs and making sure that you get 1.6g/kg of protein. For a person with say 90kg of lean mass (which is 100kg at 10% BF) that means they only need a couple of steaks per day, or a steak and a litre of milk, or any other combination. People make it expensive because they think that they are trying to get competition lean when they are really not.
