How the hell do you get enough food when you're working?

  1. How the hell do you get enough food when you're working?


    Okay, so I'm in college right now and almost finished. After I finish up, I'm going to try and work with my friend at his job. There is something I've always wondered though. If most places only give you one half hour lunch break, how do you guys get enough food during the day?


  2. Met-Rx meal replacement bars, and sneaking food when the boss isn't looking. A buddy of mine used to eat cold chicken breasts on a fork about 4 times a day....bland but it works

  3. Protein shakes, mixed nuts, beef jerky, etc. You could compensate by making your 3 squares bigger as well.

  4. This ^^^^&

    Eat what you can then enlarge every additional meal

  5. Packets of pre-drained tuna have been saving me right now as I haven't had protein powder in over a week. Still hitting my daily amount of protein and the packets are under a buck a piece often times. The other suggestions are great as well.

    Yeah, I was thinking about the protein bar idea, but I don't like the fact that they're filled with sugar, carbs and high fructose.

  7. get a job at a resturant

  8. Planning, lots of planning. If you don't prepare for it by using the above mentioned ideas it's near impossible.

    I rotate between bars, shakes, greek yogurt, beef jerky, hard boiled eggs, mixed nuts etc... Most of those don't take much prep time and can be eaten quickly at your desk. If your on the go at meetings and stuff your options become more limited.

    This one is the best I have found so far not a lot of junk in it and has a good mix of good stuff and it tastes decent but you have to go with the cookie dough the rest of their line up has a bunch of extra fats and sugars met-rx-big-100-bars-300x300.jpg

    Purchase bulk foods and bring them to work (meats, fish, vegetables, oats, FO, EVOO etc). I bring approximately two weeks worth of food to work at a time. Keep it in the fridge/freezer. Replenish as needed. Planning is the key to success.
    We live in a time where our planet suffers from two epidemics simultaneously - starvation and obesity.

    Look at all these little kids taking care of the music biz, don't their business take good care of me.

    I have the fire, I have the force, I have the power to make my evil take it's course.

  15. I usually cook 5 lbs of chicken breast at a time and it lasts me a couple of days. Tupperware with rice, veggies, and chicken is my key to success!!

    just a tip, read the ingredients on protein bars and check for inulin, inulin makes you feel full and will decrease your appetite, you don't want that, on cycle you want to eat more so avoid it if possible

  22. I almost got fired for eating too much while working

    The **** that I do not give

    Protein bars/Pocket food is essential

    HA! I got yelled at for going to the cafe to get more food during my shift. **** it, anything to gain.

  24. I didn't mention before, but I'm trying to get a job in a labor union with my friend. Much better pay than most places, they start you out at $16 an hour. Anyway, I don't know if unions or more or less strict with the whole food thing.

  25. If you can drink water or coffee you can drink liquid meals. Keep powder in shaker, add water, consume. Hell this can be done in the bathroom if need be. Don't make this harder than it is. I think we over complicate these things. Say you work ten hours eat before work, eat at your break, eat after work. Add commute time of say half hour so a total of three meals in 11 hours. YOU WILL BE JUST FINE! Unless you make your living bodybuilding you should work it around your life not your life around it.

    That is one ingredient that that bar does not have.

    Unions make damn sure you get your 2 15 minute breaks & your 30 minute lunch.

  32. I have been sitting through an OSHA class all week, and you should see the looks I get for bringing my own food...

    5 day at a time meal prep FTW.

    Hahaha. This subject doesn't come up often enough. I left healthcare after 9 years and to get over 230 lbs I would have to eat 5 times per shift, i was on my feet just waaaay too much.. I work in an office now with all girls that maybe eat twice a day... meanwhile on my 3rd breakfast, I have to get one dumba$$ comment per day.

    We're doing this training at a hotel; I found out D1 that we could eat their breakfast so I've been SHREDDING that, then eating another 3-4 times during the day.

    Today I had to ask for a room key so I could get at a microwave to heat up my lunch. People think I'm batshyt crazy.

  35. protein shakes and meal replacement bars

  36. I've been carrying a backpack for 4 years to work. It has supplements, nuts, protein powder, etc. I used to have turkey chili and tuna with plastic forks and a can opener. When I had a revoked license and would be stranded waiting for a ride after work, I'd open a can of each, mix em up and eat cold. Nothing like a 240 pound guy in scrubs on a park bench eating out of a can.

  37. Fix your meals and carry them to work in a lunch kit. When you are ready for that meal go sit down and eat. If the boss says anything you respond "Not while I'm fueling the machine bro." Or "I'm carbing up bro." Or "Bro I'm bulking " all of these are acceptable answers for puny bosses
