there are are 2 things that i HAVE to do every day and i am trying to plan my meals/snacks around it... its been a week and i still struggle...I would like you guys to help me with my eating schedule around those 2 things.

Ok here is the scoop.
I have 2 kids under age of 3. We get up around 10am (we like to sleep late). 11am - breakfast. For me i have 2 egg omlet with cheese in the middle, 2 canadian bakens and handfull of green papers.
1pm - lunch and nap
3:30pm - another meal before going to the gym
4pm-ish gym time then i go streight to work (i go at 4 because they start day care at 4).
7pm - work till 11pm

So i am very cinfused about eating shedule for me. And i also want to have meal-snack-meal-snack-meal-snack thing going on to boose my metabolism.

The problem is evening time. I eat a small but filling prtion of meal before gym, excercise till 6:15, take a shower there then go to work. On a way to wark i eat canadian baken for protein and because it makes me fill less hungry for longer time. Then i try to eat there something because its 7pm and last time i ate was 3:30pm (before gym), then i have a break at 9pm and like to have some snack... but i am confused pre-post gym meals... when would you eat in my setuation?

Well, it looks like you're doing pretty good... but your breakfast is at the time a lot of people eat lunch. I would say, try to make it from breakfast to at least 2 p.m. before your next meal or snack. You don't want to eat too close together. If you make the 2 p.m. meal lunch, then have just a light snack at 3:30 before the gym--one with protein included--such as string cheese with 4 to 6 crackers.

After the gym, have another light snack, maybe add a few crackers with the Canadian bacon, and then make your dinner break at 9 p.m. your bigger meal.

So that's meal-meal-snack-snack-meal.

Anyway, you could try it and see how it goes. :chin:

12noon add in a yogurt
1pm - lunch and nap
3:30pm - another meal before going to the gymafter Gym have something small before like a smoothy
4pm-ish gym time then i go streight to work (i go at 4 because they start day care at 4).
7pm - work till 11pm

On the way to work try some roll ups with turkey and lowfat cheese rather than the bacon. Later on for snacks you can always do mini carrots another yogurt popcorn al should help you keep full and drink tons of water

How about some grilled chicken breast or turkey breast (perhaps with salad) instead of the second serving of bacon in the afternoon? You get a lot more protein from it and it would keep you full longer (especially with the veggies from the salad).
