Hi all: I work part time at a major shipping company (think brown) where I load the packages into trucks. It can be a pretty intensive anaerobic workout for about four hours. I go to school full time also so after work that's when my diet falls apart. I pack about 4 meals into a cooler for the day and I can't help but finish it around...noon-1pm. After that I end up at Subway or a taqueria. Here's my schedule: I get up at 3am, start work at 4, get off around 8-830. During break I have a piece of fruit and a granola bar. After work I squeeze in a small meal (usually pasta/rice and a piece of chicken) before I take a shower and head to class. After that its classes, study time, power naps, drive home, get ready for the next day, tlc to fiance, and rinse and repeat. What I wanna know is, should I be doubling the amount of carbs? What can I do about mental fatigue? Is it bad if I don't have a diverse diet? My meals last year (before I had this job): $20 salmon from costco baked/microwaved with lemon/salt/margarine. This literally takes 4 minutes to make. Good for about 10 servings. Lipton sidekicks (99cents) with margarine, skim milk, good for about 4 servings each pack. I ate about 2 servings from these. Only supplements I used were fish oil, whey, and b12 with good results. I've lost a considerable amount of mass in my legs though, almost kinda wiry emoish. I plan on getting back into lifting once I get my workout routine set and even then, I'm gonna need more food.
