It's all about prioritizing. I get lax with my diet for stretches of time, even though there isn't really much excuse for it.
I just embarked on a four-month stint where I'll work 40 hours a week, have class immediately after for two hours twice a week, lift three times a week, notch two or three cardio sessions a week, and then scatter 10-15 hours of eBay work throughout the week. I'll barely have time to jerk off.
But I'm not gonna let it all ride as an excuse to get nourishment from the drive-thru most of the time. The key is preparation. Figure out what you're going to eat for most of your meals and snacks a week ahead of time. Buy it all on a free day (i.e. during the weekend), and then spend like an hour or two on Sunday and/or mid-week prepping most of those meals.
There's no way I wouldn't have eaten like shit this week if I hadn't gotten my lunches prepared on Sunday. I even prep my PWO shakes by separating the dry ingredients for each shake in containers or baggies. It's much easier to keep the diet clean if it's just a matter of grabbing some containers as you head out the door each morning.
