Snacking At Work? Healthy Or Junk?

Snacking At Work? Healthy Or Junk?

Photo by Christian Cable,

Do you snack at the office? Do you bring your own food or do you run down to the vending machine/convenience store to get something?

Studies have shown that people start to gain weight on a slow, but regular basis because of this alarming trend. You think to yourself, “It’s just one bag of chips” or “It’s just one chocolate bar” and no harm done. Well, keep in mind that if you keep doing this on a regular basis, it will definitely become a big deal.

I lost about 30 lbs. in about 6 months because I changed my lifestyle. I didn’t go on a fad diet like some people would, since you lose the weight and then gain it back all over again. You have to make a conscious effort to think and feel healthier about yourself. Once you try to set your goals towards this, you will see how easily and quickly you can become a better you.

So next time you feel like running down to the store or vending machine to get something, think before you act! Prepare a small amount of vegetables and fruits for each day. Plan out how much you think you will need. Also, another item that you can add to your vegetables would be hummus. You would be surprised of how light it is and how much better your vegetables would taste with it.

One place that my wife showed me online is Recipezaar’s lunch/snack recipes, where you can get a whole range of healthy ideas for your meals. Give it a try! Let me know how you are doing!
