    Why not just plan ahead and pack some calorie-dense foods in tupperware?

    I like to stay fed every 3 hours, but it's more or less because I get hungry then I want to eat too much or the wrong foods. If you are worried about staying anabolic, get something like Humapro by ALR Industries. It's an amazing product. I used the tablet form when I go hiking in the mountains. 10 tabs causes the same anabolic response as about 45 grams of protein from whey or meat so I'd drop about 10 tabs and have something like an apple or whole grain crackers, I wasn't prepping so I was mostly concerned with keeping a positive nitrogen balance while in the mountains.

    Also, I teach elementary PE and I do't get a break for 3 hours at a time, so if it gets to 3 hours between meals I make sure I have the powder pre mixed and drink 2 sv during one of my classes.

    I too am a server and I have the same problem as dunimous... As far as the power walking goes, if im trying to bulk up, and im power walking 4-6 during a shift, would you recommend to up my carb intake for my meal before work? I too eat a big meal before waiting.
    Thanks!

    I would quit, but that's just me :P. I'd probably try to drink BCAAs during work and eat before work a big meal. Also, after work, I'd eat a huge meal.

    for example, i work every saturday night and dont get out until 1030-11. If i eat a big meal around 11-1145 and goto bed around one, wouldn't a lot of it be stored as fat?

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    Tricky situation. I still think that after all that moving around your insulin sensitivity is higher than normally and the carbs will be stored as glycogen. If you don't eat too much of them, that is .

    I personally feel your best bet is going to be to eat a good meal prior to work and then have some BAA's mixed up in a large water bottle (15-20+Grams). Sip on that through your shift. Maybe 3 hours into your shift (halfway point) take 10 grams of an EAA mixture in water or tablet form. After work, get home and eat a meal of veggies, protein and EFA's. You'll be good to go for the night as far as nutrients/recovery. You could even add something like brown rice solids to your BCAA mixture or even powdered gatorade to keep you fueled up with carbs during your shift.

    I am a chef and dealt with this same dilemna when i took on a second job at a busy production spot. It was impossible for me to get my breaks in and i was always ridiculed for taking half of my law given lunch break! I was preparing for a show as well during this time and my metabolism was trough the roof! Since i didnt have the time to scarf down decent foods i would pack some protein waffles id make with my protein powder, egg whites and oats, and id cut them up so i can pop them in my moth when im making runs to the back of the storage or to the restroom! Ha! Before i got in the actual restroom of course....but anyway, making my little protein shakes with just water took a feat too because id have to have the water there with me and really couldn't discretely shake it up In a shaker, so i eventually had to buy those Isopure rtds and just pop the top and knock it back! Cheers and good luck!

    Maybe have a protein shake with some oats in it, with a banana, it's fast, easy and you get a steady flow of energy, better than just a protein shake alone,

    you are entitled by law to have a break every 4 hours I believe.

    Whey Protein- 45g
    Xtend - 3 servings (30g protein)
    Glutamine - 5g

    I also have A big meal before work filled with carbs/protein/fat. And when I get home I have A protein/fat meal before bed. So I was just wondering if my current setup should work fine or should I change some things around?

    Take a liter of whole milk to work with you. Easy to store and doesnt require any mixing plus you have plenty of calories!

    I do that with oats and egg whites too. Blend egg whites with oats, splenda, cinnamon and sometimes wheat germ or a fiber product like myofiber. One of my favorite meals. I'd make little pancakes with them and take them on the road withme when I travel or did demos or worked at a show like the Olympia or Arnold.
