    23 years bending nails. Added a nail pouch to my belt for carrying protein bars, shakes, granola bars, dried fruit and a bottle of water. Packed it first thing (a snack before break). Pack it again after break (snack before lunch). Again after lunch (snacks between lunch and roll-up time).

    Take in a good breakfast, snack when you arrive on the job then: Snack 1, Break, Snack 2, Lunch, Snack 3, Post work meal driving home, Gym, Snack 4, Dinner, Greek yogurt before bed.

    I busting my ass in all weather and gained size and weight natty for many years before AAS.

    I am in construction also and I agree it's hard as hell to eat or even eat right but I try to do a pure pro and a pleasant valley bar for breakfast then I do turkey sandwich for lunch (if it isn't to hot) little bit of baked chips and I make a hlf of sandwich but I usually don't want it cause it's to damn hot so I do a pro shake with water, then when I get home I will try to do a shake 30-45 mins before workout and then eat dinner with in the hour of working out, and at bed time I do 2 scoops of pro and a scoop of all natural pb with almond milk.....I hope that helps

    Make a stack of PB and Js. And a thermos of milk (add vanilla whey if your like) and chow down when you have a second perfect thing to eat when you can't really stop or use utensils.

    I'm in construction too, pack my meals every night, lots of finger foods, meat balls, chicken legs, hard boiled eggs, sandwiches, and everyone on my crew, thinks if I don't eat I'll pass out, so does hr and my super...

    Told then that fro. The get go, and they don't mind if I ran a tool and a sandwich, they all make fun of me cause I always have food in my hand, they don't mind because I also get all my shit done and bust add so no one complains.

    It's a 110 here all summer long, and in currently 275, so it must be doing something right...
