New State, New Coach, New Approach

The downside of working a restaurant job is that the hours can be quite demanding and make meal timing less than ideal. I have been struggling to get in the calories and macronutrients needed each day, because there is about 6 hours during my workdays when I am unable to eat. The only thing I can usually manage to consume during a shift is a protein shake, but not until my shift is three-quarters of the way over.
