Make sure you're warm enough to actually do anything. Eat warm, filling foods like soup or oatmeal if that's possible - Maybe "indulge" in some Lean Cuisine to mix it up and get some protein.
Hot tea and coffee work to warm you up as well - Especially when you add a bit of milk to em.

I work full time. I’m high restricting/ fasting right now. I usually consume my breakfast which consists of only juice before work, then I have a gallon of water that I drink throughout the day. If my coworkers get coffee, they know I drink mine black. My only problem is coworkers never see me eat, so I always lie about some Pinterest recipe I made for dinner and how good it was and how I have so my leftovers at home that I can’t wait to eat.
I’m never hungry/ weak because I’m 5ft tall and weigh 150lbs, so I’m always full on fat because I’m full of fat.

protein, concerta, and coffee help me, but i found being busy at work keeps me from eating. it's now having reduced hours that i'm struggling.


I would high restrict when I was working, bc it was 40-60 hours a week at a labor intensive job. I didn't even have to try to make the weight come off. I had it good and I should've taken advantage of that smh. now I work 6 hours a week with the fraction of the labor. I got a gym membership but it's not the same  :(

A lot of caffeine really for me. I work 12 hour night shifts as a CNA, average is 60 hours a week, although last week I worked 94 hours. I find it easier to restrict at work as I'm busy rather than at home, but I do sleep a good amount. For me, the more I've worked at my job, the more my body got used to it, so I don't feel as tired as I used to, and as reference I've been there since January 2019
