Tips to maintain healthy food habits at work:

1 Snack healthy: Stash packaged foods such as wheat biscuits, low calorie namkeens, masala wheatflakes or rice cakes in your desk drawer. This way you won’t act as a glutton at lunch, nor will you fall for heavy snacks.

2 Eat in-between: Don’t fast for long when at work. Have small meals such as fruits or high-fibre foods such as whole-wheat bread sandwich or crackers. This will help keep your tummy full and also keep at bay junk and unhealthy snacks. Drink lots of water.

Healthy food3 Cut down on tea and coffee: It’s important to restrict the intake of caffeine while you are working. Do not take more than two cups of coffee or tea during office hours.

4 Control at parties: Staff parties are loaded with cholesterol-rich food and vast volumes of alcohol which can be fatal for anyone if not taken in control. Be strong and stick to smaller portions. Always limit your alcohol consumption.

5 Don’t order food at desk: Restrict ordering food at your desk as then you tend to eat more. It’s always better to take a break and walk up to the

cafeteria and buy your snack.
