Aaaargghh! I must figure out how best to eat away from home. My daughter has a lot of volleyball tournaments that mean sitting all day in games. I pack a cooler and the proper snacks but I somehow gain weight every tournament. Some of it is water weight from not moving much all day and some of it has to be that I am eating too many calories of the good things. So now my plan is to pack only 1200 calories of stuff in the cooler. Of course, there's always a food table set up but I've been pretty successful at staying away from that.
I just have to figure this thing out. Yesterday I had breakfast of scrambled eggs and a sausage patty. I ate only seeds and nuts, dried fruit and cheese, water, coffee, diet Pepsi, and jerky at the tournament. I rode 4 hours on a bus, sat 10 hours on bleachers and rode four hours back. I gained 2 pounds.
