OK... my chubb is getting the best of me, and I figure it's time to do something about it. In the past, just working out/running has been sufficient to keep me relatively trim, but it doesn't seem to cut it any more, so I guess I'm going to have to give in and change my diet.

My question is: What kind of stuff can I take with me to work that is easy to re-heat (or can be eaten cold) that would be moderately high in protein and relatively low in carbs. I need stuff that can be prepared the night before, or in the morning (in under 10 minutes), or requires no advance preparation.

I'm looking for lunch ideas, primarily, but also healthy snacks, since I'm considering going to the 6 "meals" a day plan (with three meals really being glorified snacks).

I grill chicken or steak the night before and just reheat it. Also mixed nuts, Natty PB, Tuna, and whole grain rice or baked potatoes.

Absolutely... but not in the kind of quantities that beef jerky gives...

Average beef jerky is 0 carbs, .5-1g/fat and 8-10g protein per serving

The tuna above is low sodium, 0 carbs, 1g/fat and a crapload of protein ;)
