I usually bring protein bars on the airplane with me. I eat the Atkins ones, which are high in fiber, so they are pretty filling.

When I am at the airport, I usually eat some food. My favorite is the taco salad (no shell) from Qdoba.

Suggestions: low-fat cottage cheese and add some fruits (you barely taste the cottage cheese), beef jerky, edamame, cut-up hotdogs (or tofudogs) with ketchup, "sludge" to name a few

Sandwiches made with Ezekiel bread
Tuna
Cottage Cheese
Almonds/walnuts/brazil nuts
raw veggies

Honestly I just make what I normally would have and throw it in tupperware.

Is bringing cottage cheese through airport security even allowed? It could technically fall under the liquid / gel category, which you can't bring more than 3.4 oz through security.

Well I had no problem getting it through 2 days ago. I had 3 separate containers for it. One I ate while waiting for my plane.

Why do bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts feel the need to eat in a special way?

We need more protein than the average couch potato.

Thats about it.

i know you can find some food to eat at the terminal. chicken salad, chicken sandwich, fruit, milk, baked potato, chili, turkey bagel, etc. if you have a long flight, bring a couple protein bars to snack on until you land.

honestly whenever i fly i bring the exact same kinda food i eat every other day. i just cook it beforehand and pop it in tupperwares. just make sure ya dont bring ice/freezer packs, cuz they'll take those at security!

I usually bring bars and just eat at a restaurant in the terminal if I'll be there for a while.

I will pack a sandwich, nuts, oatmeal, and some protein bars. Usually a save these for emergency only, otherwise I will eat whatever I find at the restaurants.
