I have a work schedule which gets me home at 7 or later each day...meaning I wasn't eating dinner until 8pm. Often I would find myself ravenous when I got home and would easily fill my dinner plate with huge portions. Now I pack both lunch AND dinner before I leave for the day. I eat dinner before I leave work, come home, get some exercise in, and spend an hour of so of relaxing (tv, reading) before bed. I feel relaxed and satisfied and never over-eat in the evening anymore.

When I go on long runs I take chocolate milk with me and pack flexibile ice packs around it in a lunch box. When I get back to my car after the long run, not only do I have a nice cold container of chocolate milk, but I also have some ice packs in case something is sore. Chocolate milk is thought to have a perfect 4:1 carb/protein ratio for recovery so it works great after a run!
