What would you have done. You wake up, have a damn good breakfast, oats n eggs, some cafe to get rollin' a get ready for the gym....done eating bout 9am. 10:00 rolls around and you hop in the car/truck etc. and head to the gym which is about 20 minutes away. Get onto the highway, and BANG a traffic jam like you've never seen. Long story shot, I pull into the gym parking lot (only the first friggn exit) and it's 12:45pm!!!!!!!! Now you got ardio and to train, meaning you wont get home until 3:30 at the earliest.

Do you train, even though there would be 6-7 hours between the two meals?

Do you find a convience store and pick up a junk bar, or ****ty sandwhich and wait another 1/2 hour or so?

Do you drink you pw shake now, sit around and then train and do cardio?

Or do you say fit and just go home?

I did number one....so right now, it's 5pm and I've had a bowl of steamed veggies, a 1/2 cup of oats, 50g of protein, a cytogain shake and a cup of egg whites for the whole frickn day....with one meal left.......or two counting prebed shake. Do you just keep eating to get in all your cals? Sorry, but I was pissssssed!

Don't worry about it, one day won't kill you. Just make up for it when you get home.

I'm sure this won't slow you down. Doesn't your gym offer a protein drink? Your worrying and being pissed (stress) about something like this probably did more harm.

Find a closer gym? :p

I have learned my lesson with this issue. I have walked in your shoes before. (Although, I have pretty big feet - your shoes would be tight on me.) Anyway, I have learned to have snacks with me in the vehicle - just for that purpose. Going without food would just kill me.

I would not leave home without these.


1.75 oz of peanuts
290 calories
25 grams of fat
13 grams of protein
8 grams of carbohydrates

In addition, my car has not been cleaned for a while, so there are nuts on the interior of the automobile, old - but ready to eat in an emergency.

I easily have 2,000 calories of loose peanuts scattered throughout my car.



P.S. I would say that it is time to clean my car...

How did twenty minutes of driving (I'm guessing that conservatively it's 15-20 miles away) turn into almost three hours of driving? :scratch:

I used to obsess over eating a meal every 3 hours but eventually I gave it up and I don't think it'd made much of a difference. I generally allow myself a 2-4 hour window between meals, which works much better. I may not be able to eat every 3 hours, but I can almost certainly do it every 2-4.

Going much past 4 starts to become a problem because then you almost have to cram 2 meals into one to still hit your totals for the day, and I generally don't like eating 1500+ cals in one sitting.

Realise that you are 6 feet tall and 160 pounds, and that the last thing you need to worry about is the details.

How many times do we have to tell you this?
