By reading his Day 2 blog you can see he's already regretting the choices he's made, he didn't really invest in anything that would last him longer than a week at a time like rice or oatmeal.


Look brother, this whole thing is obviously a political advertisement and none of it is real.

The diary, the sudden realizations he's going to post in his diary, the conclusions he's going to make based on this experience. The entire thing is a fabricated, premeditated sham to sell his political message.

I guess the misery is an issue of how much joy you derive from eating. I came up with next to nothing. and my people would never the type to ask for hand outs or food stamps. just got by. I was way past grown before I really even noticed how little we had when I was a kid.

didn't seem especially bad at the time

A six pack of Ramen is like $2. Buy some pasta sauce and you're good to go for a few days

Ramen has like 300 cals so that only 1800 cals..

I could never live off 4 dollars a day but then again I probably eat over 3k cals a day and try to enjoy my food because thats what keeps me eating. I cant do rice and beans all day, no satisfaction.

Why are people talking about how they can totally do it like its not an issue. Of course you CAN do it, but in America you shouldn't have to, not on a regular basis anyway. This is a country of great excess; people have two cars, vacation houses and CEOs get million dollar bonuses when they LOSE jobs, yet we're wondering why so many are doing a bad job at eating off of four dollars a day.

We like to spew bs about the US being better than other countries, yet expect our citizens to believe it while living at the same standards as the poor in some of the poorer countries.

What i'd like to see are statistics on how many food stamp recipients are taking care of children or live in a home where they have to feed more than just themselves.

Yea it's totally possible to eat within a budget while keeping it healthy. I wouldn't necessarily say I could do it for $4 a day, that's taking it to the extreme. Ever since living off campus, I've been really planning my meals more carefully, keeping it as cheap as possible. I've learned to have a high protein, carb, veggie & grain diet for around $30 something a week.

Here's something I get for an average week, keep in mind this is sans milk and eggs, but I do buy them sometimes as well, since my friends/roommates and I take turns.
  • A Bag of Rice - not instant, from the Chinese Grocery Store, I was able to get one whole bag for around 20 bucks, lasts at least 3 months
  • 1lb bag of dry red beans(Substitute for Canned Black or Red Beans if you wish)
  • loaf of bread
  • peanut butter
  • honey
  • chicken
  • 1lb of ground beef
  • spaghetti/pasta of your choice
  • spaghetti sauce/or any other pasta sauce of your choice
  • can of chili beans
  • can of chili tomatoes
  • can of bamboo shoots
  • Bag of Frozen Vegetables
  • green bell pepper
  • onion (not peeled)
  • a jar of oatmeal (brown sugar to make it yummy)
  • oranges, apples or any fruit of your choice
  • couple pack of ramens(Get the ones from chinese grocery store)
With all of this you can make, breakfast: oatmeal, Scrambled eggs, Omelettes oranges, lunch: beans & rice, PB & honey sandwich, ramen, and dinner: stir fry, chili, spaghetti and sauce. I usually have OatMeal with brown sugar and cinnamon for breakfast, ramen or sandwiches or a salad if I got lettuce, for lunch. For Dinner I either go with Spaghetti, Chicken Stir Fry, Red Beans and Rice, or Chilli. Sometimes even Chilli with Rice.

Get nutmeg, cinnamon, garlic salt, & regular salt for the red beans and rice. Buy in bulk and cook in bulk. By cooking in bulk, I'll usually have enough for the next day. In between meals, I snack on fruit, PBJs/honey, and Ramen.

Sure, I hear my tummy growl about once a day, but that's the college student life and knowing my other foods have plenty of protein and carbs to keep me energetic, I usually don't remember I'm all that hungry.

If I ever want snack foods (not gonna lie), I'll take some from my roommates. Or even more simply, ask family to bring me a couple bag of chips or something when they come in town. Not many moms and grandmas will say no to that.

You can make some great things with Quinoa. 1/2-1 cup of quinoa (1 cup of water per 1/2 cup of quinoa) and a teaspoon of knorr chicken flavor, cook on high until it boils, then put it on low for about 5-10 minutes, and you have yourself an excellent side dish that is healthier than rice. I even eat it by itself. Don't need the knorr chicken flavoring either, quinoa is good by itself and can go with anything and taste good with most seasonings, even sweetening it.

People on food stamps drive Navigators on 24s and have 50" flat screens.


They are always eating steak and shrimp and shit.


Pisses me off.
