    If you asked for minimum calories, then you asked to be hungry. Have a pickle and some hot tea.

    when calories get really low, you have to expect to be hungry. The bigger the deficit, more likely so.
    pickle is free/tea helps pass a "moment" but ultimately you have to deal with it if that is your choice.

    Water is so my friend when hunger hits. And I deal with it daily, given I am in prep. I found that, for me, eating anything (even free) or chewing gym, makes me more hungry. Water makes me feel full...and I use those crystal light flavor things if I get sick of plain water :)

    Are you posting one post immediately after another. I've had that happen at times as well.
    I've not had them delete all though.....

    Nope i posted and got the error message saying i had to wait to perform this task so i x'd out of the error and went back and waited a minute and clicked on post again, ultimately when the error message stopped coming up i had multiple posts, when i tried to delete one of the double it deleted them both. The error message has had a number of times this past week.

    There are so many portable options for protein and easy to find subs, even when out of town. The calories in quest bars are pretty much between 180-200 calories.

    Do you have time to shop or you are just grabbing and running. While you haven't had much time to plan, you could still get through the weekend on plan (set the mindset NOW along with your commitment to d so ;) ...... just give us a little more info.

    Driving to my brother & SIL's, 4 hours away, their place is rough, schedules are at a whim and there is never really plenty of anything in the house to eat, i will get off work today, go home pack the bags in the car and leave town.

    Just grabbing and running.

    Another question can you help/educate me.
    If i wanted to see how i could make this recipe work on one of my meals how would i do that, i want to know if i made the whole thing how would i figure out how much a serving would be to meet my meal requirements - or does it not work that way? Or would i take my meal plan portions and maybe double or triple or quadruple it, throw it all in and then just portion out 2, 3 or 4?

    Thanks in advance.

    I have no idea how to split stuff like that. I am a psychologist who is very very bad in math...lol...but, I always have bulk stuff cooked in my fridge. I seriously just grab all of my stuff and worry about spliting/measuring when I get to my destination. Just don't forget your scale. And, since its your families' home, there is prob a grocery store if you forget something. I find that egg whites...liquid kind, works well too bc you can microwave them easily. Pack a bunch of stuff, grab the scale....and you will be able to stick on plan pretty breezy! Good luck!

    Do you have anything preppred and prepared from this week?

    grab dry stuff if you can.
    protein powder if you need it or use it. quest bars
    i like to keep tins of chicken, turkey, tuna, salmon that I can grab and go with.
    bag of almonds for fats
    oats or ricecakes, potatoes are easy to microwave.
    i can not tolerate liquid eggwhites and cant microwave eat eggs either. I hate any meat, unless in a sauce reheated.
    scale!

    I dont typicaly make something like that either but if you got with Jen Bower (CWT blogger) she'd be a good one to help you.
