Try nuts, though be careful because they can add up quickly. But they're very portable, contains protein, fiber AND good fats. If you need calories, they will get you there!

I think your best solution is to try to get your break at work!

If that isn't going to work out, then I agree with others to eat after work, unless there is a medical reason you can't eat after 7 pm.

Another thing you could try is to make your other meals and snacks larger. If you don't want to eat a full meal after work because you don't like eating so much before bed, you could re-arrange your calories so you are eating more calories during your earlier meals.

My Sparkpage is set to private, but I'm open to SparkMail!

I know how hard it can be some days to get a break at work, even if you are legally entitled to one!

Can you take a few minutes to eat a protein bar and grab a drink? Then you could have a light snack when you get home.

When I was providing direct patient care I would put a protein bar in my pocket and eat it while charting. Not the best idea but sometimes the only option available.

Is there a medical reason for you to stop eating at 7 pm? If not, you should reconsider your eating schedule and allow for dinner after work. You clearly understand the importance of eating enough to reach your fitness/health goals... I'm not so sure what the importance of not eating after 7 pm is though.

This is an area I struggle in too. Especially when it's hot and my appetite is way down. I also do a slow carb eating plan so it can feel like a bit of a challenge. One way I've done it is to make a protein shake and added some peanut butter and cocoa powder to it. It's portable, can be prepared in advance and is easy to drink on the go. It's super high in protein and low in carbs. And packs a few hundred calories. You could round it out with some fruit. Sometimes my Beloved likes a protein shake before rehearsal to carry him through hours of playing so I make him a similar one only I add in yogurt, fruit, milk and juice instead of the peanut butter and coca.

We get back our mete as we measure....

How about make sure you get your break? Legally, you may be entitled. And, for the record, your body doesn't know when you eat. So, there's really no reason to stop eating a specific time, unless it causes sleep issues.

I have a problem that I need help with.
As of lately I have not been able to have my break at work, so I can eat my dinner. I don't eat after 7:00 at night, unless it's some fruit or a yogurt. I need to get my calories in, and I am not making it. What do I do to get my calories in. Thanks for your help.
