Thanks for all the replies guys.
The dextrose/maltodextrin is actually the cheapest thing on that list... like $2/lbs and I use maybe 15g per lift...works out to 6 cents per lift (much cheaper than a piece of fruit and, though less nutritious, faster acting). Fish oil and quality vitamin D etc are what hurt my budget the most.
But aside from that, I easily get my protein... the cuts I enjoy tend to be leaner. I have to slather everything in oil and avocado to get the calories in. I'm moving my log "#4" over here and am going to try to remember to post my weight every monday. My major concern is whether I can post gains only eating carbs (other than veggies) in the 2 hours around my workout.
I am following a linear progression for at least my squats and deadlift (hopefully), so the heavier weights are in the future (hopefully again). I'm a stimulus addict though, so when I work my ass off through that last set of squats... I'm so pumped I can't wait to go at something else, hence the metcon. If I don't do something...I end up doing HSPUs and front levers from the piping in my apartment instead of studying.
