There has been several times in the last few days that I have been caught starving and without food. Number one this means that the meal I’d eaten prior to starvation must not have been a complete zone meal. And, number two, it means that I’d better be prepared at all times to fuel my body appropriately so that I don’t have to dive in to Starbucks and eat the nearest carb loaded snack in the snack case. Being on the zone diet does have it’s challenges and I am rising to them. By writing about it here, it gives me the extra oomph to stick to it, however, I will admit to cheating more often than I’d like- that big handful of nuts I just ate or those fries I ate off my kids’ plate earlier are all signs that I am not as strict or as rigid as I need to be to get results.
Anyway, tomorrow is a new day, and I’m always highly motivated at the beginning of the week! In an effort to be better prepared, I’m including a list of the best possible high protein choices you can pack in case hunger strikes- nuts and carbs are easy to have on hand or can always be purchased with an iced tea or coffee.
