    No cooking at all! ouch. Protein you need canned tuna I guess, also chicken and whey protein if possible. Get some nuts to keep you OK on fats. Carbs just go for whole-wheat stuff, fruits and vegetables. I love oats but I guess that`s out.

    Do you have a fridge

    peanut butter, tuna fillets. much easier to open and less mess than the cans. i used to get hungry living on campus last year and i barely had food so i would take a plastic knife scoop up some peanut butter and dip it in oats. surprisingly delicious

    Well invest in some tupperware. Then bulk cook some stews and chilis. Put them in a lunchbox with a freezer pack and they will stay cold. If you can find a microwave, heat it up otherwise eat it cold.

    Also I`d recommend making meatloaf. Cut it up and freeze it. Take out 2-3 slabs, put it in a ziploc baggie and in a couple hours it`s defrosted and ready to eat. You`re not in that bad of a situation. Just invest in some tupperware, and don`t be afraid of carrying a lunchbox. You might want to make some protein bars too. There`s tons of workable ideas in this nutrition forum, check out some other posts by people who are in simliar situations (i.e. work all day, college)

    vegetables should be easy as you can eat most of them raw without a problem. Fruit should be easy.

    all the whey protein tastes good enough to use with water...so you could always bring some shakers with all the whey and some oats in them and add water and drink whenever.

    Natty peanut or almond butter is always a good choice...or you can just eat the nuts instead.

    The idea of cooking your meals in advance is the best option here....as it will save you from getting sick of the same stuff day in and out.

    If you are going to shoot for protein bars...check out the ones by supreme protein. they are amazing and use 100% isolate.

    Two things just threw me off here..
    1) You want fat, and lots of it. If anything, you would reduce carbohydate. The low-fat diet is the worst thing one can do to their body. Not only performance wise, health wise.
    2) What is the "wheat bread" thing?

    I'd go (daily) 3 pieces of fruit, 2 servings vegetables (at that microwave at work, at then at your house for dinner). I'd then spend the rest on lean meats and nuts, both which can be easily pre-made and made mobile. A simple, yet effective meal, could be: 1 can of tuna, 1 apple, 1/4c raw almonds. Grains "work", and they may might be more affordable, but I'm unsure on that. 3 pieces of fruit and 2 servings of vegetables would run you for something like 4 dollars a day. Just offering what I'd personally do.... we don't know a thing about your training goals, program layout, etc.
