I work long, long hours...least 12 hours every day of the week; due to my job I usually have to get up in the middle of the night to take people different places. I start at 0630 and get off at 1900; unless working overtime. My night runs to the LZ is from 2200 to 0400...I have crazy hours. I could put in time for the gym...but after these hours and knowing I will have to wake up in a few hours...I just dont feel like hitting the gym. Pure lack of motivation. I would like to lose a little bit more weight though...what kind of foods can I start eating to help a little bit. Shoud I skip a meal here and there or what? When I first got over here I lost weight, I had to put 3 extra holes in my belt; but I havent lost any lately. What would be a good diet. Also, what kind of foods could I eat to get me going...to keep me awake or give me more energy after these midnight hours.....thanks to everyone with a helpful voice.....take care everyone.
you should never skip meals ever, your body goes into starvation mode and starts storing fats...i usually eat a low calorie protein bar as a nice snack and it keeps the hunger pangs away..just eat a balanced diet..thats really the only healthy way to eat, another great snack I looove is apple and peanut butter...fruit and protein right there,its great for you..dont eat simple sugars..those burn off in the body really fast and you'll be hungry again before you know it...try to eat plenty of protein, you'll have that full feeling longer, just stay away from fatty stuff and fast food....fruits, veggies, whole grains, protein...i always say, the more "color" a plate has, the more value it has(nutritionally)...and if you think about it it makes sense..unless you're talking about skittles of course
