I always seem to run into the problem with getting enough food in whenever I work a lot, moreso in a busy and hectic restaurant setting.
Personally, I am an extreme case where I count as many of my calories and macros as I can, but this issue has come up for me in the past when I didn't watch my diet this closely, leading to a massive weight loss for me. It was so bad last year that one of my coworkers noticed a change 3 weeks after from when I first started working.
At work I'm usually just so busy that I don't have an appetite, or my appetite goes away really quickly after munching on fries intermittently from the fry bowl.
When I get home, I'm usually too tired and not hungry enough to prepare a full sized meal, let alone one that can fill the rest of my caloric needs.
Yet I havent even been able to finish a full burger at work due to constantly cooking...
I worked from 4-1030p and ended my day with a 1,200 caloric deficit FROM MAINTENANCE and 100g short of my daily protein goals. Had a burger at 7p and that was all I ate after lunch.
