    If so, how do you structure your diet around this?

    I used to work out around lunch time, though it ended up being more than an hour lunch. If you have that kind of flexibility in your schedule it is cool because
    A) Less people are lifting during lunch as opposed to the after work crowd (at least at my gym)
    B) Breaks up the day nicely

    My schedule at the time was something like this (since you asked about how to structure the diet around it)

    In office at 6-7am - Eat (hard boiled eggs and oatmeal with berries)
    9:30 - eat again
    11:30 small protein shake
    11:45 - 12:00 arrive at gym
    1:00 - 1:15 back at office. Have another shake (whey/dex)
    2:30 - Whole food meal - Usually a tuna sandwich and a piece of fruit
    5PM - At home, eat again
    8PM - Another meal

    Did it over last summer.

    Breakfast, Shake, Gym, Lunch.

    Depends on your job and how much time you have.

    i used to walk to the gym during lunchtime... wasn't a big deal b/c i'd just take a late lunch and stay at work longer

    i'd bring something to snack on on the way to the gym (a shake or fruit or something like that) and then eat as soon as i got back
