Eating healthy at home is somehow easier than eating healthy when you're at the office. Whether you struggle to find healthy lunch options or you're bombarded with snacks and desserts in the break room, it can be difficult to rise above temptation day after day. But it isn't impossible to eat healthy at the office!
Preparation is key
Prepping your meals ahead of time is a major key in winning the war against unhealthy habits during work hours. Take a little extra time on Sunday afternoon to prep food for the week and it will pay dividends later.
What if you have lunch plans?
Yes, we understand that in the corporate world, lunch time is often used for meetings with colleagues and clients.
If you know you have a lunch meeting,have a healthy snack or your pre-prepped meal beforehand or wait until you get back to the office.
If you do feel the need to eat during the lunch meeting, suggest a restaurant that has a few healthy options. If picking the place isn’t your decision, just make the best choice you can.
Be prepared for a snack attack
Some days mid-afternoon hunger is real but if you're prepared for it, the urge to snack doesn’t have to throw you off your game.
Don’t sweat it
Perhaps the most important thing to remember when trying to make a change in your lifestyle and maintain healthy eating habits is realizing that having something “unhealthy” isn’t the end of the world. Don’t beat yourself up and let one choice spiral out of control. Pick yourself right back up and make a better choice the next meal.
