starving actors? oxymoron?
they're either not acting very well, hence not very good actors, or they're good actors, and therefore not any where near starving.
I could be wrong, I have never known an actor. It's a presumption on my part.

Has very little to do with talent and more about being able to keep up with the cost of classes, photos, postcards, workshops, networking events,
fashion, parties (gotta stay social because people only wanna work with people they trust and know), blah, blah, etc.
It can be quite expensive chasing a dream.
Most people get tired by the time they get into SAG/AFTRA and fall into a 9 to 5 job for security.
Starving for your passion ain't easy.
As for the OP.
I usually eat a $1.65 burrito from 7/11 a day and chase it with a cup of coffee $1.80. The rest is water.
It's totally unhealthy but it's cheap. Been doing that for a bout a year.
Other than that, Costco. Plan ahead. Rice, beans, Muscle Milk, Tuna(try not to think about radiation or mercury), Eggs, and lots and lots of veggies
$1.00 a day is tough but if you break it down after you plan ahead, you might get close.
I think I spend around $50.00 every 2 weeks food shopping.
I try to get a decent deal on chicken breast (make a few days worth of chicken salad), 3 lbs. of beef and the rest is on fruit and veggies (kale or
spinach), and a little dark chocolate to keep the spirits up.
Slowcooker recipes go a long way in the fall and winter!
I'm thin but ya gotta do what ya gotta do.
or better yet,
save your dollar and find 6 earthworms a day and a tap with clean water.
An average sized earth worm has about 7 grams of protein. A 'serving' of earthworms defined as 6 earthworms, has 42g of protein.
I have to admit, I've thought about it.
