Is leangains so strict that breakfast is the meal you are required to skip? Can you skip dinner instead? If you skip dinner, at work you'll have a big breakfast in your tummy and a big lunch to look forward to at work, without changing the number of hours that you are in a fasting state. That may help stave off the donut cravings.
Mr. Koozie, the vending machines in hospitals are a tragedy. Who are you likely to find in a hospital? Families of sick and dying patients! They don't want to leave the patient to go to the cafeteria, they have screaming restless kids who (rightfully) sense the awfulness and just want out of there, they are trying to make life or death decisions in the hallway, they are constantly run over by doctors, nurses, jangling machines, other families...they are stressed out beyond belief. It's a junk food exec's wet dream.

I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and should tweak Primal to their own needs.
