Hello Mr Labrada,
I wonder if you have any tips for eating healthy
when working in a busy office
I am often sat behind a
desk in a small room shared with two other
colleagues for up to 10-11 hours a day. I
always end up snacking from the vending machine as
I'm so hungry. I seem to be gaining on
average a pound a month since I
you, I read a lot of your website articles and
find them very helpful, I hope you can offer
some advice .
Hello Janet, your
situation is extremely common, the good news is,
it's entirely solvable. If you can stick to the
tips I'll provide today, not only can you
stay healthy, you'll lose that weight you've
gained as well.
As you mentioned the
vending machine, let's start with how you can
resist its temptations. Yes, it's super convenient
, however, you'll struggle to find a single thing
in it worth eating and many a "office" diet has
been ruined by these machines.
Combined with the
never-ending office temptations of birthday cakes,
donuts, and other pastries that make the rounds,
it's not surprising, the vast majority of
office workers gain weight every year they stay in
the question is, how do we implement a healthy,
nutritious, protein rich diet while stuck in an
air conditioned office 11 hours a day? Well
let's break it down...
Your Own Food Into Work With You.
The easiest way to avoid
the temptation of poor food choices, is take your
own food into work every single day. Here's some
perhaps on Monday you bring in a chicken breast
sandwich, a protein bar and a shake. On Tuesday, 2
protein bars, and one meal in Tupperware, and so
forth. Do what works for you, nothing is cast in
stone, the most effective diet is one you can
stick to. Just get your meals from one of the
above sources, every 4 hours or so. You'll feel
satiated, have zero vending machine temptations
and your body and mind will thank you for it very
Multiple Small Meals a Day.
of the biggest reasons for binge eating is waiting
to long to eat between meals. Not eating for 6
hours ensures your blood sugar levels drop through
the floor, making you ravenously hungry.
This is exactly when people turn to large
quantities of high sugar / high calorie
foods to satisfy the cravings.
you eat a few small meals throughout the day, you
simply won't get hungry and you won't over-eat,
it's that simple.
this reason I suggest eating about once every 3
hours. This need not be a chore to achieve at all.
A Lean Body Gold bar, makes a great
meal. It tastes great, provides 25 grams of
protein, is low in sugar and will keep you
satiated for hours whilst taking zero time to
similar solutions include Lean Body Ready To
Drink shakes, perfectly designed for
taste, convenience and nutrition when cooking
about a sandwich on wholemeal brown bread, with
salad and chicken or tuna. You can get 25-30
grams of protein in a sandwich and still make it
very tasty. Just prepare it at home and take
it in with you.
Food In Bulk at Home.
5 meals in one go .Put them in the freezer, and
take one out each day to take to work. Once you become adept at
cooking in bulk, you can prepare 5 meals and put
them in Tupperware in pretty much the same time
you prepare one meal.
Whipping up 5 chicken
breasts, some vegetables and rice is incredibly
easy to do. You can flavor your
chicken with spices and herbs, you can create a
colouful vegetable collection with peppers and
other flavorsome foods. As long as you incorporate
the calories into your overall daily totals, you
can also add some flavor using low calorie

your office will have a microwave and a fridge to
store your meals in, but if it doesn't ,
don't worry about it. Buy a decent cooler with
cold packs and just put it under your desk. Or,
here's a little trick, take the frozen meal
out of the fridge that morning and just take it
into work frozen. It will defrost in the
microwave, no big deal.
Water - Lots of It!
water! It will keep you feeling satiated. Most
people are dehydrated all day and don't even
realize. Just because you don't feel thirsty,
doesn't mean you don't need water. That's a common
misconception, so keep drinking - all day. You'll
notice an almost immediate improvement in your
mood, your health and your ability to focus.
Dehydration, even mild, causes us to operate at a
fraction of our real abilities in almost every
area you can think of.
to deal with "Joe" or "Mary" from
It's almost inevitable,
that "Joe" from accounts will have a gem of wisdom
to impart as to why eating "chicken and rice"
means you're getting too much protein or why a
protein bar is "weird", etc.
People who aren't prepared to
make an effort with their diet are usually either
(a) badly educated on the topic of nutrition or
(b) feel guilty they can't get the will power
together themselves, so they brow beat you to pull
you down to their level.
Don't let either (a) or (b) or a
combination of both, dictate how you live YOUR
life. You're in control of you, not your office
colleagues. Do what you need to do, not what Joe
from accounts says is best - whilst
polishing off his fourth piece of cake!
polite, but firm. Simply let Joe know, you don't
like the food from the vending machines or the
canteen and you prefer the foods you bring in
yourself. Once you've dealt with it publicly and
in an upfront manner, it's rare that anybody will
ever bring up the same topic again.
Resisting the Cake
Just say "No thanks, I'm
not that hungry". It's not that hard to do ...
focus on how great you'll look as opposed to how
"good" that food will taste. If you've been eating
your small protein-rich meals throughout the day,
whether that be solid meals from your Tupperware
or drinks or bars, you won't have the craving for
that's it really, in a nutshell, be prepared
and get organized.
I hope you're able to
follow the advice. If you're in doubt as
to how much to eat, I suggest you check out

next time, stay healthy and
lean, live lean!
