Well, its not my place to comment on your home situation, but follow my suggestions for breakfast and lunch. If you can cook bacon and eggs, making a bowl of cereal and a couple of sandwiches should be easy for you.
How long is lunch break? When I worked as an instructor I seldom got more than 15 minutes for refreshments, but that is plenty of time to eat a couple of nutritious sandwiches and an apple- no excuses.

Evening meals- if you are eating out a lot, most restaurants will be able to rustle up a steak, baked potatoe and veg/salad. Aim for that, or anything without cream sauces/dressings.

If eating at home, cook up some rice or pasta,add 1-2 skinless chicken breasts or 1-2 tins of tuna, some lightly cooked veg of choice, and a touch of balsamic vinegar and pepper to give it a bit of 'zing'. Easy to do, if you buy pre cooked chicken breasts or use tuna it takes about less than 15 minutes to prepare.

If your personal circumstances are as haphazard as you say, then a one a day multi vit and mineral tablet probably isnt a bad idea.

Good luck.

It sound's like you are a very responsible young man. The fact that you even think about sound nutrition and take responsibility for your own well being tells me you have a lot going for you. It sounds like your mom and dad are very wrapped up in their own lives which seems to happen a lot these days. Your mom could use some books or CD's on thinking more positively. I do this myself, just to help me from staying negative or thinking negative. Joel Olsten has written a book called, "Your Best Life Now" it might be a gift your mom could benefit from if she would read it. The fact that you research and think about your health and well being gives me confidence that you are adjusting well to your life and taking care of yourself as well. You might ask your dad if he would like to get out and throw the football or take a walk or something, reach out to him since it seems he caught up in a whirlwind.

We (being my dad and I) have tried to get my mother to seek counselling or psychiatric evaluation, but, alas...she refuses.
I don't have a problem with my dad, though. He's pretty cool. He has a tough job, and he is, quite understandably, exhausted when he gets home. He does support my martial arts training in a big way, though. : )

That sounds good, thanks. : )
And if you're referring to One-a-Day, the brand name, I use Centrum.
Though, I try to eat more lamb and turkey than I do beef, as lamb and turkey have been proven to reduce cancerous reactions to carcinogens. : )

For breakfast, I usually make eggs and bacon.




I'd recommend you only consume that once a week if that, assuming the egg is fried and eaten with the yolk.

I make my own museli which is like rocket fuel and really sets me up for the day. It consists of the following eaten with semi skimmed milk:

Porridge oats
Dried Apricots
Prunes
Sultanas
Sunflower seeds
Pumpkin seeds
Hazelnuts
Almonds
Walnuts
Dried cranberries
Dried blueberries

I sometimes include a blob of low fat natural yoghurt and a splash of fresh apple juice. It's delicious and nutritious!

You have to be careful with foods labelled as 'low-fat' as sometimes sugar is added to make up for the lack of fat and taste!

The eggs are scrambled; yes, they have the yolk.

And what you mentioned sounds really good...I should try it sometime.

: )

Thanks.
