How to Eat Healthier at Work

By Lauren S. Johnson

Many of us who work in an office environment tend to adapt bad eating habits. We either eat at our desk or run out to the nearest fast food joint. When we do this, we encourage poor eating habits and unavoidable weight gain. So what are some of the ways we can improve our food habits while at work?

The number one way to avoid poor eating habits is to never eat at your desk. Not only can your desk accumulate millions of bacteria, but it also allows you to lose focus of what and how much you have eaten. When we eat at our desk, we are usually answering the phone, writing emails or shuffling through papers. We don’t pay any attention to our portion size or calorie intake. That is why it is very important not to make eating at your desk a habit. It’s bad enough that you have to sit there for 8 hours, why make it 9? Another way to eat healthier at work is to bring your own lunch. Yes, brown bagging your lunch is extremely wise. Not only do you have a better idea of how many calories you are consuming, but you also completely eliminate your odds of ending up at a fast food joint during your lunch break. Also, when packing your own lunch, you can get very creative. You can bring a sandwich with chicken salad or salmon, nuts, beans, veggies, fruits, etc.

Furthermore, when at work, you should try to avoid snacking. Any office is bound to have morning pastries or a bowl of candy so be sure to avoid the temptation to snack. Bring an apple with you instead. The fiber in the apple will curb your appetite for hours and provide you with energy. These are just a few healthy eating habits at work.
