Trying to stick to a healthy eating plan? It can be easy to mindlessly eat at work, consuming unneeded and unhealthy extra calories. These strategies will set you up for success and help you stick to your goals.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day

Start your day off right by breaking your overnight fast! Begin by consuming a nutritious breakfast including wholegrain breads and cereals, fruits, low-fat dairy or nuts and seeds.

Multitasking can be a bad thing

Avoid snacking when you are reading, working on a computer. Multitasking can lead to distractions and cause you to overindulge.

Choose foods that are high in protein

Try to incorporate protein in all meals and snacks to help keep you satiated and to regulate blood sugar. Food items high in protein are: dairy, eggs, meat, fish, legumes, nuts and seeds.

Up your fruit and veggie game

Fruits and vegetables are filled with good nutrients and fibre. Try to incorporate a wide variety of them in your daily meals and snacks. Try a new fruit or vegetable every week.

Plan ahead

Pack healthy snacks, like fruit, veggies or trail mix for the commute home and avoid the pre-dinner munchies.
