    Typical day's meals:

    Breakfast:

    Egg beaters with green salsa on a wheat tortilla

    Mid morning:

    Protein bar

    Lunch:

    Last night's dinner (yesterday was grilled salmon with some rice)

    Mid afternoon:

    Iso pure protein powder in a 12 oz. glass of 1% milk

    Evening Workout

    Dinner:

    Grilled meat (chicken, fish, pork loin, sirloin), baked potato or rice, salad

    I know the protein bar has to go, as they're not that great for you. What can I do for a mid morning and mid afternoon meal?

    I work ridiculously long days (10 hours plus an hour commute each way), and have to be at work at 7:30, so I'm pretty time restricted in the morning. Something I can grab and throw in my lunch bag is highly preferred to something I'd have to cook.

    Following the 1-1.5 grams of protein per pound of lean mass, I think I'm inline (I'm 135 lbs at about 12% bodyfat). But I'd like to get away from the protein supplements and use real food as much as possible.

    My schedule looks like this:

    6 AM: Wake up
    6:30: Leave for work
    7:30 Get to work
    1 PM: 1 hour lunch
    5:30: Leave for home
    6:30: Get home
    6:45-7: Start work out
    8:00: Finish workout
    10:30: Bed time

    TIA

    what are you goals?
    what are the total calories?
    what are the totals of the macros (protein, carbs, fats)?
