Your Diet at Work
The workplace is a minefield of potential diet disasters. Vending machines in the lunch room, a candy dish on every other desk and donuts served at every business meeting can break the resolve of even the most determined health conscious person.
It can be tough trying to resist temptation at every turn, but it's not impossible. There are ways to maintain control in the junk food jungle of the workplace. The worst thing you can do is to wait for your stomach to dictate your food choices at work.
First of all, start with a plan. If you know what you consider acceptable snacks and food options before you get there, you will be less likely to be a victim of diet sabotage in the workplace.
It's important to be prepared. Make sure your desk or work area is well stocked with the healthy choices you would prefer to eat during your work day. Common healthy snacks include fruit, small packages of cut up vegetables or 100 calorie pre-packaged snack packs of cookies, crackers or chips.
