Helllo everyone,

I get this type of question a lot........not just from website readers, but co-workers, friends, etc.

So, what's in your lunch bag? I work a regular 9-5 job like most of you, so I take a lunch bag or "lunch box" whatever they are called, to work with me.

Sometimes my lunch bag weighs bout 10 pounds and I'm pleased.

Since it's 6:30AM and I just packed my lunch for the next 8 hours of work I'll quickly list what's in there:

3 Apples
3 Oranges
2 Bananas
1 Package Ives Veggie Turkey
Small bag of Almonds
2 Clif "Builder" bars
2 fruit drinks

I think that's it for my 8-4 hours and then plenty of food later on and for breakfast I am currently having:

Oatmeal
Soy Yogurt
Choc. Soy milk

Feel free to list what's in your lunch bag, we could make an online nutrition log so readers get an idea of what we eat each day.

<b> I made $300 last night in tips from one of my jobs and another $75 in salary pay from my first job. that is $375 in one day!!!!</b>

here is what is in mine.

viatamins
vitamin c
multi vitamin
amino acid
b-complex

2 cliff bars (peanut butter and chocolate mint)

this is all I have right now. I have to buy some food later like a few bananas and apples. I am still working 16-19 hours per day on 2-3 hours of sleep so I have not gotten into the gym.

Breakfast - Smoothie
1 cup Silk soymilk enhanced with flax oil for Omega 3s
One Orange
One Banana
5 grams creatine
40 grams Nutribiotic Rice Protein

Lunch Bag - Kind of light today, but I will be going out at lunch as today is not a training day. Usually spend my lunch hour at the gym 3-4 days per week.

About a pound of leftover mexican casserole made of corn tortillas, refried beans, fried potatos and onions, tofu and enchilada sauce.

Cliff Bar, Carrot Cake flavor
Two Bananas
320z. Soymilk

Will probably grab a vegan chicken salad sandwich at the local health food store on my break.

On a typical day add a couple of bagels or peanut butter and Jelly on whole wheat, another Cliff bar and more leftovers. :D

Dinner tonight will be out with my girlfriend. We are trying to decide between our favorite Thai place or the new Vegan Chinese restaurant with the all you can eat buffet! 8) Damn I love that place!

Started bulking in October 2004 at 205 pounds, currently 242 with a goal of 250. Nice to see that goal so close now. Then comes the hard part of shedding all the extra fat. Oh well, there is a lot of new muscle to help with that.

I barback. Basically I make sure the bartenders in my bar have everything that they need. It is a lot of lifting and a lot of running.

The reason I made that much is because the kentucky derby is tomorrow and the week of derby is crazy here. And because there are an extra 500,000 people here from out of town, the bars are always slammed.

Cool news though, micheal jordan, cuba gooding jr and tom brady are amung the celebrities that are suppose to be in my bar. mj and cbj were there last night.

OHHHHH and all the professional wrestlers for wwe go through years of training camp here in kentucky so I saw a bunch of them last night too.

Wow michael, you bulked really fast! I remember 250 was my high school goal, or better yet aspiration, but I wasnt able to hit it. A year later, and 70+ lbs + more, I am in my 250's. I was wondering how your lifts were so strong at a bodyweight of 205, thanks for letting me know that you are 242. You also have some nice looking food.

bobby, that job sounds fun. As for WWE, they are my fav! Were they WWE wrestlers in training or already stars like Batista? Good luck on the job for the week mate!

The Builder bars are probably the best tasting ones I've had, especially Peanut Butter flavor. They are also very heavy in calories, you eat 2 of them and that's 540 calories with 40 grams of protein.

They are a bit sweet, kinda sugary, but I eat them on occasion. Clif bars seem to upset my stomach a bit so I don't eat them as much as I used to.

Now I eat tons and tons of fruit. More than I ever have before, I just like them so much!
