"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. It doesn't happen, what does happen is you get results. Lifting Barbie weights does nothing but waste time.

I do two small and two big meals!
Peanut butter sandwich is great for class. You don't need a fridge!!!
I have faced it. Having tasted, a life wasted. Oh, I erased it, I'm NEVER going back again- E. Vedder
I usually eat 3 meals a day and 1 snack if possible.
Sometimes I will even treat myself to a dessert.

I usually do 3 square meals as that is what is more available to me. Occasionally I will add snacks to that, particularly on days I work out.

I find eating four to six times a day works for me.
Eat what you like and if someone comments, eat them too

I tend to eat a moderate breakfast and lunch and have at least one significant snack in the afternoon, sometimes also in the morning. I MUST have protein with breakfast. Cheese, eggs, meats or anything. I measure out a snack in a small tub of sunflower seeds, raisins/craisins/choc chips/other dried fruit and snack on that through the day, mostly in the afternoon, but sometimes before lunch if I'm peckish.
Edited to add: My calorie intake is about 3/4 by afternoon snack and my dinner is about 1/4 of the day.

So... this has been my second week back living healthy and I've noticed that I'm hungry all the time (every couple of hours). I've always been the one to eat every few hours because I find it works best for me. I've also had to up my calories because I wasn't eating enough but it's hard for me to meet the minimum.
And another reason I eat throughout the day is I can't eat a large breakfast because I get full so fast but then I'm hungry a couple hours later. And I have classes that last 4 hours with a 30 min break but sometimes I stay up to 12 hours depending on when my lab schedule is.
What do you find works best for you? What are good meals I could bring with me to stay sustained throughout the day?

Be bold, life is to short to live it any other way.
