1. When preparing healthy foods at home, make extra so you can have lunch for the next day or even a couple of days of meals that consist of healthy foods.
2. Try one new fruit or vegetable once a week. You can add this to a salad for lunch or have as a snack.
3. Keep a food journal or try an app on your phone or computer. It may seem like this will be time consuming, but writing down everything you eat and drink for atleast a week or two as well as how you feel mentally and physically, may help you figure out your eating habits at work.
4. If you just do not have time to bring lunch from home every day, try shopping at your local natural food store or deli. Look for freshly made foods like salads, baked chicken, roasted vegetables, grains such as coucous, healthy wraps or sandwiches.
5. Make sure to drink enough water. To help stay hydrated throughout your day bring with you a water bottle that you can refill. Try to drink approximately 8 to 10 glasses a day. Some people who are used to sugary drinks such as soda or juices have a hard time converting to water. You can put cucumbers, lemons, limes or other fruits in your water to make it more tasty without adding sugar and flavorings.
6. Get a food buddy! There is more than likely another coworker who is also having difficulty avoiding the tempting snacks and treats around the office. Having a partner to hold you accountable will definitely be helpful.
7. Start a Fitness Challenge!
