i got a new job and its supposed to start at 8am and go till 1pm, but i have to go in tommorow at 7am. i usually eat every TWO hours but i dont know how many times they are going to want me to be eating while im there. if i eat my first meal at just before 7am right before work, then my next meal THREE hours later at around 10am...and then lunch right when i get out (ill pack it and leave it in my car) at 1pm...then just continue the rest of the day with the eating every 2 hours is that bad or no? i mean is it going to make that much of a difference, im just trying to figure out how to juggle this eating with my working. both are important and i think the way i described above is the best way i can do it. thanks for the help in advance!

Eating every 3 hours isnt that bad. The rest of the meals after work can still be every 2 hours.

thanks a lot for the input. i usually have a shake (1/2 cup oats, 1 cup milk, and 1/2 scoop of protein) and 4 egg whites when i wake up. ill just eat that right before i walk in tommorow. then for a snack i have canned chicken and an apple...i hope they dont get pissed, how the hell can i sneak eating that, maybe say that i have to go to the bathroom? all i do is clean up in the mornings at a very popular bar around here. hmmm...any ideas?

Just tell them you are going to take a 5 minute break. I really don't think it will be a big deal. Even if they do say no, you won't be fired for asking.

Tell them you have diabetes and your blood sugar feels low and if you don't eat you'll die. :D

They might be weird at first about it but once they understand your lifestyle they'll be more supportive of your 5 minute breaks to eat something healthy. I bet after awhile they'll even start asking you questions about dieting and exercise because they'll envy you. You'll see.

take a small handy snack with you until you get accustomed to the job and their policies.
