Eating healthy at work and pursuing weight loss seems like a hard feat. Attempting it in a busy work environment seems almost impossible. You may be forced to eat lunch at your desk or even working late hours. With these dilemmas your fellow employees may try and convince you to order some unhealthy choices for delivery or even bring you some fast-food back to the office. You must have the drive and will-power to say no and to help with this you should be pro-active in your cause.
Practical tips to eating healthy
One way to avoid these pitfalls is by bringing your lunch with you; do not forget your snacks. You may think you do not have the time to prepare your meals but you do. If you spend twenty to thirty minutes watching television, online or on the phone you can do this. You can even multitask if you’re on the phone. If you are on the raw diet this will be even easier since you will not have to cook any foods. Most companies have break rooms with refrigerators so there is no worry about storing you food. Make sure you label it with your name!
Option number one is to prepare a fruit salad. You can buy all of the fruits that you enjoy from your local grocery store or market. Cut up the fruit and place it in a lidded container and refrigerate. You now have your lunch. If you would like a salad, do fresh greens and add some cucumbers and tomatoes. You can have oil and vinegar mix in a separate container or you can buy small packets of dressing to keep in your desk drawer.
Make sure you have some snacks on hand for those cravings. You can have baby carrots or celery if you like. You can even have fruit such as strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, or grapes. They aren’t so big and will not make much of a mess at your desk. Make sure you have napkins on hand at your desk though for any impromptu guests or clients you may have to see.
Overall, you will see that you will save time and money while maintaining your diet at work. You will not have to go to restaurants and spend less on lunch. Neither will you spend money on fuel. You might also make some new friends at work by having lunch with new people in the office who bring their lunch also. Your wallet and waistline will thank you for this!
