    Ok, how about lunch? Do most of you eat out at fast food joints, or do you bring a lunch?

    I always try to bring a lunch. I always bring a cooler for water and drinks. If I'm feeling lazy, I'll hit the Subway for a sandwhich, but I try to stay away from the fast food. I notice a lot of other lco's at the fast food joints for lunch in my area. That can get expensive, every day.

    Usually don't do lunch. If I do stop.. it is for a plain 7-eleven hot dog or a couple of soft pretzels. I mostly make it through the day with a couple of cokes.

    I really should change my diet...

    I usually just eat breakfast then skip lunch. I may stop and get a candy bar or something at a gas station but thats all I eat when I'm working. I don't know why but I just don't get hungry while working especially when its hot outside.

    I always bring my lunch with me. I just eat throughout the day so I don't have to make any extra stops. I usually stop at a gas station on the way back to the shop at night and get a Gatorade.

    I make a sandwich the night before and usually bring a couple of pieces of fruit.

    I usually buy a hot lunch, seem to get more work out of myself & feel better after a good lunch.
  8. Lunch fits around the work schedule.

    Sometimes we don't eat lunch 'till 3:30
    Yesterday we ate lunch at 11:00

    Half of the time we eat in the truck.

    You guys that are working long hours need to eat breakfast and lunch. I usually drop my guys off whereever they want, and I eat in the truck. I bring stuff like Tuna, Hard-boiled eggs, or other protein. The energy you can get from protein is outstanding. Carbs. slow you down too much. I can't do fast food or greasey food.
