Simple meals such as chicken breast and than vegetables as sides kind of thing? If there is a thread better suited for this then I'd love to be redirected there so I can get some knowledge on what I should eat and do to help me.

I am 22 years old so just need simple meal plans that don't necessarily cost a lot.
Protein, protein, protein and protein.

Chicken breast are cheap and full of them. Eats eggs like there's no tomorrow. Cottage cheese, greek yogout, canned tuna.

As someone who used to be in that poster's position, and was trying to get out of it for a long time... Calories are more important than protein. (I do eat a ton of protein tho, but the differences really started to come with the calories)

I know that guy posted awhile ago but calorie counting and eating a ton is the way to go, along with a good gym plan.

I had trouble eating 3500-4000 cals a day until I found this one method online, and it's been a godsend.

6 meals a day, between 500-700 cals each. Might take a bit for your body to get used to it but once it does it's a breeze. That plan I found online was a healthy bulk but I've been straight dirty bulking, eating whatever as long as it fits in those calorie parameters.

You might not have the time to do that so research some other bulking methods until you find one that's do-able.

I buy bulk of whatever is on sale at one of the 3 nearby stores I go to. Then I figure out what to make/how to cook it later.

Pretty much. I live off of extra lean ground beef/chicken breasts/lean ground turkey for the most part. Stock up on the cheapest one.

Sometimes a decent cut of steak is on sale, or back ribs, or good bone-in pork chops. Just gotta to know where/when to look. Chicken Thighs are the best though for poultry, so juicy and BBQ up so well with a quick marinade.

Quick note on ground meat, the leaner it is, the more expensive it is. I am not concerned with fat content at all, so a lb of regular ground beef or "regular" lean is a more affordable option.

It varies. I think the cheapest right now at my store for this week is extra lean ground.
