    Most groceries sell lean turkey or chicken sausages, some of which even come pre-cooked. These can be microwaved on a bun for a bratwurst type lunch, or even eaten cold if you were so inclined.

          I agree with Scott. If time permits then more solid foods but in the end yua gotta do what yua gotta do to meet those numbers at the end of the day!

            It will last longer. I cook it sunday night and it is still good the following saturday provided you refridgerate it and store it in closed containers. Most of the time I eat all the food by friday though

              if there's any felt, it should last till fri/sat and still be okay to eat.

                  I don't think the OP is asking to rely on shakes but due to his schedule he may have to. My brother is going to contemplate doing this because he is stuck working with no break, so a shake will most likely be his only way to go. He doesn't want to rely on it, but at the end of the day not sure theres much you can do.

                    This thread is 2 years old. I think the OP has long since made a decision.

                      That's because the thread got bumped by a spammer/trojan account from Pakistan.

                        6 a day for the last two years would put you at around 4400. Better start drinking them shakes, get those gains!

                            I think 3 shakes a day is enough for anybody.

                              I never can gain size with protien powders it just seems like i piss it all out. If im low on time stop at the deli counter and getting a pound or two of roast beef and just eat that through a few meals to get by, probly not healthiest but its cheap and more effective then drinking a powder at least for me.

                                How about starting out with replaceing one of your shakes with a can of tuna or mackerell? It needs no preparation or cooking, you can carry it with you anywhere and it`s probably gonna supply a lot more micronutrients than your protein powder. And if you go with the mackerell you also get a decent supply of omega3 EPA and DHA.
                                Pretty good tradeoff eh?
