Diet and workout for an executive

Hiya not sure the word executive is right but may fit..

Bacially ive been training for a while now - story goes was a 14 stone, 36 inch waist chubby guy, and then got into fitness - lots of cardio and dropped to 11 stone and 32 inch waist. Got a bit bored of the cardio fitness thing and thought id get into muscle, am now 14.5 stone with a 32 inch waist, 17 inch biceps etc for a different reason so quite pleased with the results.

Now im a fairly busy senior manager/ head of and work between Bristol and London and long hours (did 72 hours last week). My concern is both diet and training but thought id ask for a few tips on diet.

Given that im either in meetings, in the car or on a train are there any simple foods I could take without looking unprofessional? I have my whey shakes as top up (and get the p%ss ripped out of me), nuts and fruit and where possible I make my own lunches with chicken + veg. Id post my diet but its so variable based on meetings, where I am and the day may not be worth it.

This sometimes involves skipping meals.

.....but anyone else in a similar boat and can offer some simple tips?

cheers

Silk

    Homemade protein bars for your goals would be a start
    Customised MRPs
    Whey shakes
    Etc...

    Why do people 'rip it' out for you for having a protein shake? ? ?

    thanks for the response

    Principally people rip the p8ss, as its pink or brown and looks like liquid sh..t but also looks a little unprofessional if i take it into meetings... thing is if i dont both food and protein shakes nose dive.

    Main issue with why or MRP is that if im overnight in london or for a couple of days and living out of a suitcase sometimes a little unfeasible to carry MRP canisters around....

    I'd be interested in the replies to your post Silky as I have the same problem of living out of a suitcase for days on end.

    One thing I have done is putting whey powder in a plastic food bag as it's smaller / easier to pack than a tub, I've also got some MRP shakes in individual packets, which are easy to pack, and mix them up for the long drives home from work at the end of the week, if you get MRP in bulk there's no reason why you can't put it in food bags like the whey. I also make some protein flapjacks with fruit and nuts in as a morning / afternoon snack which look sort of similar to the off the shelf ones.

    Whilst none of those things are perfect it at least means I'm getting something and not skipping meals too often. It also means I don't have too much bulky stuff to cart around with me.

    yeah cheers sounds like i need to act my act together and get baking some stuff. ill look around the recipe section.

    I think my main concern is that whilst im away i turn into a sandwich man and whilst looking for the high protein ones - concious that a sandwich from pret isnt exactly part of a well rounded diet imo

    Hey mate

    I use big fellas recipe http://www.muscletalk.co.uk/m_11/mpage_1/key_bigfella/tm.htm

    They're easy to make, taste good with a few sultanas and keep well.
