    Ok I glanced over the stickies and dont really see anything addressing this. So like most ppl I work from 9-5 every day, so its hard for me to eat multiple meals a day. do you guys just carry a container of all the food you plan to eat during work or what? tips pls? thx.

    Don't be a vag.

    Bring extra meals with you. I eat 2 lunches plus 2 shakes (min) per day.

    As everyone has already mentioned, just bring stuff to work. It really isn't that hard. Every sunday night/wednesday night take an hour to prepare some re-heat meals for the next few days. Bring easy to carry stuff like beef jerky, peanuts, protein bars, powder whey, etc...

    If you need an excuse to eat it just tell people you are slipping out the bathroom or going outside for a couple minutes of fresh air.

    Maybe you're on to something! I have streamlined myself out of a job before. I'm not a real engineer either, I just play one 90% of the time and don't make the same money. :o

    Pack the extra food mano. Grab one of those soft lunch bag deals, a couple of packs of refreezable ice, pack yer daily rations inside, consume...........

    takes a little pre-planning....but cook all you meals on Sunday, chop all the veggies and whatnot.... easy stuff after a few weeks.

    a set work schedule of 9-5 is the easiest fucking way to ensure multiple meals because you always know where you're going to be and at the exact time.

    Beef jerky
    almonds
    peanuts
    peanut butter (big ass jar of it, i just jam the spoon in there and close the lid)
    raisins
    prunes
    bag of dried fruit

    probably some other things in the drawer that i'm not remembering right now.

    i just snack a couple times when i can through the day
