Post work out lunch for on the go!

hello,

My dad started eating paleo after he saw what an amazing difference it has made in my life. I'm so excited he's giving it a try and it makes coming home for holidays and visits so much nicer, not having to worry about food and stuff.

He is having trouble being really really hungry at night. He has bullet proof coffee fro breakfast, a turkey burger for lunch post work out (He alternates HITT and strength training), and dinner with the family. After dinner he's always still hungry and ends up eating nuts until he goes to bed.

I've been brain storming and trying to think of a solution. He really hates eating big breakfasts and loves bulletproof so he says he doesn't want to change that meal. I'm thinking he needs to increase his lunch and increase his carbs at this meals. What do you think? Do you have any idea's of what meals would be good for him to take. It needs to be pretty easy because he doesn't have to much time to eat after he works out at lunch.

Stats: 50yrs old, 185lbs, and 6 feet tall.

Thanks!

Post-workout, hard, raw veggies like that would make me sad, I think. Any other time, I would love them. :-) But they are convenient, I will say that.

... or plantains! Either way, good sources of starch, resistant starch, and sugar - alongside vitamins and minerals.

Simple and effective. I'd expand this to "starchy roots, tubers, and fruits" and "a varied amount of types of fruits". :-)

When I'm done working out I often get one of those take away containers of vegetables from whole foods (raw carrots, broccoli, celery, bell peppers, cauliflower) and then like 6oz of fresh roast turkey or beef.

Finger food is to-go friendly in my book.

CARBS!

Roast a ton of potatoes and then keep 'em in the fridge. They are awesome cold.

Sounds like he's simply not eating enough, if he's substituting meals for bulletproof coffee. I have actually found that coffee (with added fat or otherwise) makes me hungrier. I think it's because the caffeine increases my metabolism, so my body wants to "compensate" for lost calories or something.

For post workout, your dad can afford to eat carbs, so how about bananas?
