If you are 100% committed to losing weight or gaining muscle then you are 100% committed to preparing your 5-6 meals a day. You either make them the night before or early in the morning and take them with you to work. But I get it things happen and this isn’t always the case. Whether you went out for drinks the night before and did not wake up on time or you had a problem at work and you couldn't leave. Things happen and I want you to be prepared to eat on the go. Do not use this as a meal replacement, but more like an ambulance.
Nuts are an underrated snacks. Most people look at the food label and do not eat them because they believe it is to fatty. They not only provide you with the essential omega 3 fatty acids, but they also provide you with antioxidants linked to lower cholesterol, better heart health, weight control, and even a lower cancer risk.

This again is another easy option that contains a mass amount of essential Vitamins and Minerals. Plus you feel full afterwards. Don't be fooled, these drinks contain a lot of calories, but very good ones of course.
- Protein Shakes
Protein shakes are typically much better than protein and granola bars. Most of the marketing on those bars are all about weight loss, but when you get into the label it is almost impossible to find a protein bar that doesn't contain all kinds of unnecessary sugar, fat, salt, and or simple fast absorbing carbs.

You will find a high number of shakes on the shelves of your local 7/11 that contain 150 calories or less of pure protein.
