I understand that ideally youre supposed to eat small meals throughout the day...

I work as a bartender and often don't get a break or a chance to eat. When/if I do, its basically 10 mins of me cramming my face with whatever is available in order to get a meal in.
After work, im so hungry I get fast food or takeout and then fall asleep.

I am looking to drop around 20 lbs and tone everything.. but I know I cant unless I change my diet.

What would you suggest I do? I can have protein shakes to sip on throughout the day, but dont know which ones are worth buying. (I heard slimfast is calorie packed and not worth it??)

Help?

What Jason said. The only thing I'd add is pack almonds or other nuts that you enjoy.

Find what healthy foods you enjoy and load up your fridge /cupboards. I prefer things like raw almonds, plain yogurt, string cheese for my 'snack' meals.

Last thing to consider, for roughly 24hrs after alcohol consumption your body can't metabolize fat. Doesn't matter if it's beer, wine or clear. Get into a groove and pick a period of time to avoid it for a few weeks.

Also your schedule should allow you to do a pre-breakfast workout. Do a run, or a vigorous walk or anything before you put food in your stomach. I've had it do wonders for me!
