Exercise! People who exercise are more cautious about what they put in their body. It makes sense. You wouldn’t bust your butt day in and day out just so you can eat Big Macs and chocolate bars.
Make your lunch: Bringing your lunch to work prevents you from going out for fast food or getting something from the snack machine. A chicken salad, a piece of fruit and some nuts are not only a healthy choice, but it will keep you going for the rest of the afternoon.
Bring Shakes to work: If the day is getting hectic and you can’t get away for lunch or don’t have time for a snack between meals, don’t even think of skipping a meal! Continue working while you snack on a quick shake. A great shake example would be 1 cup almond milk, 1 scoop protein, 1 tbsp. almond butter, 1 tbsp. coconut oil and 1 serving Phytoberry.
Realize you deserve better: Your body is your temple and you are the only one who can decide whether you want to take care of it, or let it go to waste. Decide now that you deserve the best for yourself. Each time you reach for the Doritos or French fries, take a second and ask yourself these two questions, "is this bringing me closer to my goal or further away?” and "what other option do I have?”. You always have a choice. Every restaurant and fast food facility now caters to the health conscience.
Keep a reserve of food at work: Bring cans of tuna, fruits and veggies, home-made trail mix and extra protein bars and shakes in the office refrigerator. Just make sure to label your food! This way if you forget your food, you won’t be tempted (or forced to settle!!) with the cafeteria or vendor machine.
Have a reserve of food at home: Same as above. Keep the fridge and cupboards stocked with healthy foods and treats. This way, you’ll be less likely to order out or settle for chips and dip as a snack. Another benefit…..all the money you’ll save!
Eat Breakfast: By far the most important meal of the day. It kick starts your metabolism, keeps you mentally sharp, provides energy and prevents the mid-morning crash. Eating a health breakfast also sets the stage for a health day!
Eat frequently: Eating every 2-3 hours keeps your "internal furnace” high. The longer you go between meals, the lower your blood sugar drops, causing cravings and usually resulting in poor meal choices. Eating more frequently gives you more energy, allows you to lose weight faster, and improves mental performance.
Balance you meals: Not only is a proper balance of calories important, but a proper ratio of carbs, proteins and fats is essential to achieve your goals. Using a website like www.fitday.com or having someone like me design your meal plans is the best way to make sure you are eating the proper balance of foods.
Drink plenty of water: Be sure to drink at least 3L of alkalizing water each day. Get in the habit of consuming 500ml of water immediately upon rising
