    5-6 meals isn't gonna work. Need some advice

    So I work for a oil/gas fracking company. I work in the shop repairing the pump trucks. I can't just say hold on I have to climb down and eat a meal. Should I just try and watch my intake? I tried low carb but since I swing a sledge hammer and lift heavy shit all day I was burning out by lunch and had no energy. Goals are to cut weight slowly but increase strength. Any help is appreciated.

    Do guys take smoke breaks?

    If you have five free minutes you can eat a cold meal.

    So one meal before you go, two more during, one of those being lunch, one as soon as you leave then one before bed.

    There's always a way

    Its not that hard man..even if you gotta say you are taking a shit and slam a meal in the stall real quick.

    If you want it bad enough youll make it work.

    if you don't want to eat cold, warm food goes down faster. buy a couple of these

    20 bucks on amazon. will keep food warm for hours.

    I'd thank for the posts but haven't figured that out yet. By cut weight I mean like 1-2lbs a week. Sounds like everyone thinks 5-6 meals is the way. Guess ill keep trying to figure it out. Thanks for everyone input

    Or you could do like I do and blend up your Chicken and Rice or whatever your meal is with some water into a shake consistency..put it in a thermos and you will be able to drink it in less than 1 minute. Simple.

    Iíve a little experience in oil and gas, donít know where your at but if youíre 14 on and off I can see where it would be tuff. They do feed yíall well though from what Iíve seen, but good luck and get creative. Not sure I could stomach blended chicken and rice but bless you if you can brother!

    You should be able to get 4 big meals in, breakfast, lunch,dinner right after work, then dinner #2 closer to bedtime. You can also keep a RTD protein drink handy in a cooler next to your tool box or a protein bar in your pockets. That's potentially 6-7 protein feedings total right there.
