I'm on a 1600 cal diet, so far I'm down 14 lbs and want to shed another 10 lbs. When I'm on the run I've been eating Chick-fila chargroiled chicken sandwhich, which is ok for 270 cals, but I'm getting tired of them. Any other relatively quick stop food chains with a decent meal? I've used Myoplex fairly heavily also, but I need real food.

Thanks,
Barry

I'd suggest packing a lunch. But if you can't Boston Market isn't too bad. At least the food is kinda real.

Thanks for the tips. I'll try subway and Boston Market. Maybe I'll try packing more, between getting the kids to school in the AM, and everything else, I'm lucky to shave some mornings (excuses excuses).
Thanks

im pretty sure you work 16 hour days come home sleep and wake up only to go to work again =\

16 hour days would be light if you consider homework and time with kids, drive time, helping wife with housework, etc... No complaints here though, most days I can work in a 1.5 hour lunch that I spend at the gym, and I'm not stealing time from anyone else to do it. Life is good, just looking for quick food ideas.

A tip if your a mayonaise eater. Do not get the light mayonaise. It might give you stomach problems. I don't know what crap they put it in but it's probably trans fat or something. Real mayonaise is always the way to go. Don't worry about the fat. It's good fat :D

grilled chicken breast, pre cooked white rice, pre cooked baking potatos, lean cuts of beef, whole wheat bread, cottage cheese, you can eat anything on a cut you just have to calculate your calories and hit the percentages you want to achieve your cutting goals. Also spend time on the weekends pre cooking everything and bring a backpack with food everyday, that's what i do and it works out well. On sundays i cook 25 chicken breasts grilled, 10 lbs of potato's both baking and sweet i cut em up into wedges my favorite, i cook a pot of rice or 3/4 of a bag and just store it all for the week and then by the end of the week i cook all over again.
