I actually do stop for lunch, 20 -30 minutes, usually where I can get water. A lot of times on shorter trips I'll take packets of the chicken salad or flavored tuna, and a sleeve of Ritz crackers. I have a container to keep the crackers from getting crushed. I find a short break with a small lunch gives me a boost of energy.
