Let preface by saying that I have been doing CF since May, and I have exceeded the goals once set for myself. I have lost over 15lbs and my stamina is through the roof.
Latley my schedule has been:
5:00 - MRP drink
6:00 - WOD
6:30 - BJJ
However, recently my gym has changed the BJJ class to 7:30 - 9:00. I live pretty far away from my gym and havent been geeting home until about 9:45. I have gotten myself used to eating about every 2 hours. The trouble I am having is by this time my 5:00 snack is lond depleated and I am starving, and honestly don't really feel like cooking up an ideal zone dinner.
At this point am I being counter productive eating so late? Also any ideas on how I could tweak my diet around my new schedule would be helpful.

Sounds like you are eating too many carbs. Try having an ounce of deli meat, 3-6 almonds, and half and apple or a small palmful of grapes.

See if that doesn't help you.

Also make sure you are having something similar right before you go to bed.

Many days a week, I have similar schedule. I do two things.

(1) add another snack between the 5pm one & the late supper.
(2) On the nights that do not have a late schedule, I cook extra zone foods. Then on the late nights, I can come home & quickly reheat a zone dinner.

Usually I have a large containers of cooked beans, cooked chicken, cut-up veggies, fruits & raw almonds in the frig. A scoop of this & a scoop of that, add some seasoning, and couple minutes in the microwave = A quick zone dinner.
