I am a high school senior (as noted in my introduction thread). I would like to begin training, and have just started to get everything set up. The problem is I attend school 5 days a week from 8am to 2:30pm. I know I am supposed to eat about 6 small meals a day, but with 6 hours of my time being taken up in school, I'm finding it a bit challenging.
My question is, is there anyway I can still get the foods I need that are small, compact, and require no preparation? Obviously no eating is allowed during school hours so I'd have to "sneak it". I really want to get this rolling, but this is a big problem. What would you reccomend?
Protein bar during class change? Water protein shake if you are allowed to drink during class?
u don't have a lunch period? and everything that has been said is good advice.
Do what needs to be done.

You can get at least one meal in during school, do you have lunch period?

How much do you need to eat? If you start figureing out how many calories you need per meal, than you'll reliase it isn't that hard to do it in 3 meals per day. Also, a "meal" doesn't have to be like something you would eat with your family. A cup of peanuts with a glass of milk is a meal and is pushing 1k calories.
I am trying to lift to get lean (my body fat % is pretty high right now, I'm overweight) and want to eat right. Would those bars help me? Seems like slamming 1k calories in 1 eating session would help me gain weight.
I do have a lunch period btw. I'm probably going to start packing my lunch, because the crap they serve in school sucks. Another crappy thing is we can't drink anything during class, not even from a water bottle. In order to gauge how much water I drink I'd have to fill up a measured cup in the fountain and slam it in the hallway.
This leads into another couple questions.
1.)What is a good breakfast? I've recently stopped eating it all together because whenever I consume anything (even drinks) in the morning I tend to feel like crap. I can't really eat cereal because my body doesen't seem to like milk (cheese is okay sometimes).
2.) And what would be a good lunch? It would have to be something that could fit in a brown bag that would stew in my locker for a few hours.
Also, my training time will most likely be after I get out of school. Probably from 3:30 - 5:00 or somewhere in between. I'm going to have to write up a grocery list.

- Dunk a basketball (hey a man can have big dreams huh)
- Swim 2-3x/week and become a better swimmer
The six meals a day thing is more of a comfort thing. If you're bulking, it's a lot easier to 1k calories in 6 meals than 2k in three. If you're cutting, it's more a matter of felling like you're always eating which can make you feel a lot better about eating very little.
