So it’s been a long time since I have been training regularly… Probably about 3 years. I won’t really get into why and just accept that I suck for allowing myself to put myself in that position, but I’m going to bounce back from it. For now I’m just trying to get my body composition back to some respectable numbers and ramp myself back up on current training knowledge.
As part of this “coming back,” I realize how important a clean diet is (especially since I consider my body slight unforgiving for diet “snafu’s”) and plan on incorporating that into my life, mostly with JB’s precision nutrition as my foundation.
Now I’ve read several posts about substitutes to minimize poor choices, like the recent KFC post, but what if that isn’t available? What if you go to a place that you know you’ll be away from any sort of respectable form of food for over 5 or 6 hours? Situations like this would be like going to a club, bar, or even just some random social gathering? Let’s even say that you aren’t drinking(to keep the spirit of the discussion one of adaptation instead of what you should/shouldn’t do when you’re dieting); you’re just the DD.
Some options that I have thought of will work, but I’m curious as to what other people do. There is a mix that I think Chris Shugart talked about of dates/nuts and whatnot that made a healthy protein/fat snack. You could also bring a few protein bars to bridge the gap until you get somewhere with actual food. Jerky gets a little tiring to eat, but is yet another option.
Does anyone else have anything more innovative?
