Well folks i've lost 16lbs since i've started work this summer.....its a 6am-5pm job and mon-sat and i'm usually dead tired when i get home......so i have a little dilema...it took me 6 months to gain those 16lbs and only a month and a half to loose it.....i'm now leaving to work in the US with the same company and need to find ways to prevent my body from eating itself even more.....i know the solution would be to get enough calories to sustain my weight but its very difficult to do this with a labor intensive job......so the question i have is would it be "safe" to base most of my diet on shakes/protein bars ect......i rather eat natural food but its rather hard for me to get the meals in. Any advice guys/girls.....i'm shiverling away!:cry:

you shouldnt let shakes take the place of reguler sold foods. try making extra food for dinner and take it to work with you for lunch.

Are you able to eat very often during your job? If so do what the others just advised. Prepare some simple meals and bring them along. It takes a little extra time in the morning or the night before but it's the best solution to your problem. Otherwise bringing suppliments would be better than nothing.

I know you said you have a " labor intensive job" but if by ANY chacee you work in a office go pick up a copy of Muscle & Fitness (september 2003) RIGHT NOW. It has 5 very simple easy and healthy meals (I've tryed all 5) you can make with the use of a microwave and microwave-safe containers.

I made a thread of each recipe in the Recipes forum

if you are trying to get 5000-6000 cals I don't see a problem with half of that coming from bars or powders

add some ground oatmeal and flax to some n-large and that could easily make it to around 1000 cals
