I currently work 11 hour days at a desk job. Trying to space out my meals without being hungry. I get to work at 6:00 am - I have been trying to have a boiled egg when I get to work, I can't handle a full breakfast that early in the morning, So I usually eat breakfast about 8-9. Lunch is at 12-12:30. I don't get home from work until about 5:45 and have to fix supper, so some days we don't eat until 6:30-7. I am having trouble with the long stretches between meals. Any suggestions, since I know they prefer you do not snack and just have the three meals a day?

Aw that is a long day! I can’t imagine doing all that AND being hungry. I second the mini-meal idea. I do this too, even on Whole30s  - I go to the gym right after work so if I don’t eat something in the afternoon, my workouts suffer and I’m starving by the time I get home. Like ShannonM816 said, just make sure your snack has at least two (if not all three) from the protein, carbs, and fats list. If you only eat a banana, you’re not going to be satiated, but if you eat a handful of olives, a jerky stick, and a banana, you’ll be comfortable until dinner! 

Another idea - do you have time (or desire) to meal prep on weekends? That way you don’t have to do it when you get home from work. You could also try utilizing a slow cooker so some days you can come home to dinner already finished, hot, and ready to eat! I’ve become obsessed with the Cook Once Eat All Week book by Cassy Joy Garcia - her system makes so much sense (just be cautious and modify recipes as needed because they aren’t all Whole30 compliant). 

Hope this helps!!
