Here's my schedule for my classes (I take my other ones online)

Tuesday:
Wake: 9
Breakfast: 9:15ish
Class: 11-12:20
Class: 12:30-1:50
Drive home (30 min) get home at 2:30

Here's the thing...Obviously I should eat between these classes, or at the beginning of my 2nd class...But what? I have literally a 10 minute walk, and usually take a fast piss, and end up being a few minutes late to the second class. I need to walk very fast, but I do have time to eat/drink something small in the class as I set in the back.

Is there any bars on the market worthy? RTD's? I've been out of the loop lately, cause at work/home/whatever I just pack meals...But I can't really eat while I'm jogging to the class/sitting there.

I was thinking of either eating one of these:

or drinking on of these:

Not sure though...I'm a pretty strict cut, but I dont want this meal to be a cheat/or not optimal. Thanks.

Hardboiled eggs.
Dry shake in a cup - just add water.

Dry shake in a cup? What do you mean? I always felt just protein wasn't really a sufficient meal for meal #2 of the day. I need carbs/protein to hold me over til my pre-workout meal I have when I get home.

Grind up oats, put them in with the protein. I put three or more shakes in seperate baggies. That way I can have more than one, i just wash out the shaker when I can.

What do you mean? I want to get as shredded as possible on my cut...I can't get shredded eating Detour Protein Bars.

You can get shredded eating CHOCOLATE, babe. It all comes down to running a deficit and lifting heavy.

So for the past 5 years I've been worrying about food choices for no reason? I would love to believe that...I mean I have a strict carb/calorie count for the day, that I always follow. But lets say I have chocolate every day during class...Wouldn't the saturated fat/sugar give me other effects other then just the calories in/out?

Why do people constantly compare labels, if the only thing that matters is a deficit (cutting) or extra (bulking)? I'm confused :eek:

BTW, sick abs.

Thanks.

I ate chocolate almost every day of my cut to get those abs.

Just not very much.

Junk food tends not to be particularly satisfying. If you're not controlling caloric intake, it's very easy to overeat if junk makes up part of your day. That being said, if you track, and you have room for some "crap" once you've hit your minimums for protein, fat and fibre, go for it. Your cut will still work just fine.

What I did when I was taking classes was oatmeal in a shaker/w protein then just add water. Just like a little meal on the go for broke students. If you have the money go buy some meal replacements and take those to class. You deff need to eat something because going all day without will put a halt on your progress. Just my 2cents hope it helps.

Is what you're doing working for you? My guess is, no. Instead of making things more complicated, simplify. Protein powder is all the same. It really is. Get one that's cheap and tastes good. That's as complicated as that needs to be.

My advice to you, which every "expert" on here will bash, is this: STOP worrying about the little stuff. Stop reading all the crap that's out there. Try it for yourself. If it doesn't work, try something different. This s how you figure things out. Reading the internet is not the answer. Trial and error. That's how every great inventor figured things out. Thomas Edison didn't figure out the lightbulb on his first try. Many failures came before it. And, here's another secret - there is no holy grail to training and dieting. There is not just one way. There are a ton of different ways. Figure it out and stop worrying about things that don't matter.

Your last senstnce says it all. It is that simple. Calories in v. calories out (bulk/cut) So simple, but everyone wants to make it more than that.

Or, just keep doing what you're doing and expect different results. That's insanity. Take your pick.
