Earlier we discussed how we might maintain some level of fitness during the height of a busy hunting season: http://forum.deeranddeerhunting.com/tm.aspx?m=83992
Another question is, how do we maintain a good diet?
I've always had a lousy diet but as I age I see the value in a pure way of eating that avoids garbage. Junk food seems to rob me of energy and makes me feel sick. I've really begun to cut out the fast food and other crap that I ate in my youth. One of the ways I have learned to combat junk food has been to eat more frequently and to eat on time. Junk food is a crime of opportunity. When I am starving and running late, I am likely to fall into bad eating habits.
The problem is, during the rut I find myself running around almost as much as the bucks I am chasing. Many times I am in the stand during normal meal times. As I drive home my stomach is growling and those fast food joints along the highway are awfully tempting. I need to keep them from winning this year!
My first effort has been to put a box of protein bars in the back seat of my truck. They are filling and much more nutritious than a Hardee's cheeseburger. What I am looking for is some ideas of easy and portable meal replacements that I can use as things get crazy.
