i used to bring soups veggies,humous and crakers and sometimes hard boiled eggs........we had a fridge.........most staff rooms have them these days........all the best with making your lunches for work...
i know people who even bring their own cooler etc especially when working the long shifts and the cafeteria is closed eaelier and earlier these days at least where i work it seems that way........

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.
When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And
maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

Do you have any access to a fridge...? I'm a big believer in having lots of fruits & veggies handy for gnoshing away...would consider even if a fridge WASN'T handy of having some way of packing them to take along.

Hi Christina! I remember going through the exact same thing as you when I was in nursing school, what worked for me was on the days I had clinicals, *also early early!* I would eat something small like a Fiber One bar on the way out the door along with my coffee (which became my best friend those years lol) that got me through till my first break where I could eat something a bit more substantial. Then of course, that would get me through till lunch. When all else failed, I would drink a boat load of water to try to stay fuller longer! good luck with figuring this out and nursing school :) I know it's hard and stressful, but worth it :)

Hey Folks,

I'm a nursing student (moving to a new career -- I used to be in science) and since starting school have been struggling to figure out how to balance my nutrition so I don't end up eating essentially 2 breakfasts. My current clinical has me out the door at 5:30am at the latest. For those of you who work in a clinical setting (12 hour shifts etc) how do you plan your meals? For me I've always needed to eat pretty regularly or I'll crash, so I can't just be up and about for hours until my morning break (which is the same time as when I'd eat breakfast in my past career).

Anyhow, I'm struggling to figure out the best way to balance things so that I don't face the return-to-school-scale-creep.

Any tips? Suggestions?
