I’m 18, 5’ 10" 235 Lbs
I’ve been regularly eating 4500-5500 Kcal and training 3-5 times a week for almost 1 year now.
I’ve been keeping a strict log of all my food intake, training, sleep, and recovery methods since August 2006.
I had been previously working at a job allowing me to have at least a short break every 2-3 hours that I took to eat as quickly as possible.
This worked well as it allowed me to consume a satisfactory amount of calories even over long shifts.
At my current job I often am forced to go 7-8 hours without food.
Employees are allowed to buy food from the store after close.
However, this is still 5+ hours into my shift and I have no money to spend on buying food, as I am a high school student and not yet independently capable of doing so.
The only thing I can get by with is a handful of mixed nuts in my back pockets which amounts to 500-600 calories over 7-8 hours.
This is a big change from the 2000-3000 calories I would usually consume over that time and in 6 weeks the negative effects are obvious.
I am in a rut; I have no idea what I can do.
I’m posting here looking for any advice or ideas about how I can solve or improve on this problematic situation I have.
