(HealthDay News) -- The office can be full of temptations that
can derail your healthy eating plan, but if you're prepared you
don't have to give in to those temptations.
The American Council on Exercise lists these suggestions to help
you stick to a healthy eating plan at the office:
- Create a meal plan for your meals at work, and decide what
you'll eat for each meal and snack each day at the office; pay
attention to your office cafeteria's menu so you know to bring
something healthy on days when their offerings might tempt
- Prepare your meals and snacks for the next day the night before
so you're not rushed and tempted to skip it.
- Eat a nutritious, balanced breakfast each morning; include a
combination of fruits, vegetables, lean protein and whole
- Avoid high-fat, processed foods for lunch and try to eat
freshly prepared foods whenever you can.
- Indulge in healthy treats or small portions of your favorite
desserts; try satisfying your craving with berries or a single-size
portion of candy or dessert.
