      Food doesn't change just because you are working labor- just eat so that you aren't too lazy to work. Obviously if you have other goals outside of simple survival, you will need to adjust. You'll be burning a lot of calories, so bulking will be hard without the extra caloric intake. Dieting will be simple.

      Bam. There is the answer.

      No fast food, no junk food and no energy drinks.

      Can you bring a cooler of some sort? Like most of us here, just prepare a weeks worth of food on Sunday. I grill or boil 10 chicken breasts, and mix them with a bunch of mixed veggies for lunch. I bake some huge egg/spinach/sausage casserole thing for breakfast. Pack some water, fruits, nuts...you get the idea.
