Work From Home And Nutrition

Keeping your nutrition in check can be tough when your home is your office. You feel comfortable and there’s plenty of food available.

And unlike in the office, you’re free to graze all day and the fridge is all yours. But this habit can wreak havoc on your waistline, sabotage weight loss...

Try to set up your desk in an area that’s not near the kitchen. You might be tempted to wander over and check the fridge if it’s constantly in your line of vision.

Decide that the only time you’ll be in your kitchen during the workday is when you’re getting ready to have ...

Just as you schedule and plan out the rest of your day (get up, workout, shower), establish when throughout the day you’re going to eat. If you know you like to eat lunch around noon, plan for that.

And if you like to have a snack in the late afternoon, plan for that as well. Treat food l...

Once you hit the ground running, err, working, it can be hard to take a break to actually eat. But it’s important to know your hunger signs and realize that not eating can affect your alertness and productivity.

Think about this the next time you’re feeling hungry and just want to grab a handful of chocolate from th...

Just as you’d fill up a water bottle at the office to keep at your desk, keep water next to your work station at home too. If you have water readily available, chances are you’re more likely to d...

Having access to endless cups of coffee might seem like a great idea, but tread carefully when it comes to caffeine. Too much is known to cause headaches, anxiety, digestive issues and even fatigue – none of which are ever good, but particularly not good when you’re trying to work.

Aim fo...

Don’t stock your fridge or pantry like a vending machine. This can lead to eating just because you can!

Try you best to keep junk food out of your house, especially foods you know can trigger a binge for you. Out of sight, out of mind.

You might be tempted to continue working through your lunch break now that your co-workers aren’t physically there. But don’t do it! Being distracted during a meal can lead to over-eating and decreased satiety (satisfaction and fullness) from the meal.

Instead, take a break from work to s...

Never eat out of the bag or original container, as it’s much harder to control portions that way. Check the serving size on the container if you need extra guidance.

For meals, try the healthy plate method: Fill half a 9-inch plate with non-starchy vegetables, one-fourth the plate with a ...
