It is important to eat or drink six low carb, high proteins a day, mixed in with a few vegetables and a small fruit here and there. These meals are spaced out to about every 2 to 3 hours, to keep your metabolism running. If the protein is a meat, it has to be around 4 ounces to lose weight. But, sometimes, it is hard to plan because you might be on the run. If you skip a meal, you are only hurting yourself and slowing down your metabolism.
Today I had early class over 30 miles away from my house. I made sure that I prepared the day before. I could have made a salad with a protein, but I bought a prepared one from Chick Fil A. Maybe too much sodium, but it was grilled chicken (not breaded) and all in all, with the dressing , it was less than 20 g carbs. That was my lunch and I took it with me.
I grabbed a hard boiled egg for breakfast and some coffee (no carbs) and I took a protein bar (Nature Valley Protein with dark chocolate and peanut butter), which was 14 carbs. I ate that two hours in from my hard boiled egg and an hour later, I had the salad.
I had another protein of grilled chicken with veggies (no carbs) when I got home. So, I prepared and I didn’t eat a bunch of carby junk. Total for my four meals=34 g carbs. Two more meals included a chicken salad (about 5g carbs) and some Carbolite frozen dessert at 16 g carbs. Had a few nuts too, adding up to about 10 g carbs.
Total for the day of carbs was about 65 g carbs. Not bad for a day on the run! I was never that hungry either because every time you think that you are getting hungry, it is time for another protein hit. This way of eating is totally do-able!
You can eat healthy on the run. Always have the right kind of snacks with you. http://best-eating-plans.blogspot.com/2012/02/eating-healthy-on-run.html
