  1. Walk during your lunch break and eat a bag lunch at your desk. You can avoid the tempting break room and still get to socialize with your co-workers by inviting them to join you on your walk.

  1. Take sugar free gum to work. Chew sugarless chewing gum at work instead of munching. Have sugar-free gum in the candy bowl at work instead of candy.
  2. Bring your food to work instead of getting fast food, take out, or vending.
  3. Bring a pre-portioned low calorie frozen meal to work every day.
  4. Make your own pre-portioned frzen meals ahead of time using frezzer friendly containers like the [15 Pack] FreshPREP Meal Prep Containers – Reusable, Stackable, BPA Free, Microwave, Freezer & Dishwasher Safe Fitness Meal Containers – Food Prepping Portion Control Container – 3 Compartment – 33oz/.
  5. Have a fruit bowl instead of a candy bowl at work.
  6. Pre-portion healthy snacks to take to work like fruits or sliced vegetables to help you avoid unhealthy temptations.
  7. Keep healthy options like carrot sticks closer to you or on your desk at work for when you are craving candy or when you forget your lunch.
  8. Turn dinner from the night before into a healthy lunch, by putting a serving of your dinner into a light whole wheat wrap and take that to work.
