Lunchtime at work can be more detrimental than you might realize. Sitting around your desk eating poor food choices is the order of the day for many people. A quick trip to the canteen or corner shop and voila! you are eating all the wrong food types, causing unintended weight gain.
Another culprit for unwanted weight gain is the many food vending machines in the workplace today
These machines are loaded with unhealthy, processed junk that simply clogs up your body and serves no good purpose.
Activities can cause unwanted weight gain
Another obstacle to keeping you from preventing unwanted weight gain, is spending too much time eating and talking at your desk or in the canteen.
If you get an hour for lunch, try to spend the bulk of this time going for a walk. Find a friend or two and go for a walk to a nearby park if possible. Not only will you burn calories by walking, you will also not have the opportunity to eat unnecessarily.
When I was a young man working for a corporate company, a number of my colleagues and I would go for a 6 mile run three time a week during lunchtime. It was a great opportunity to bond with like minded people, kept the calories off and stopped us from gossiping about our fellow co-workers.
These are two powerful ways to prevent unwanted weight gain during lunchtime. The accumulative effect of this behavior over a year will be mind boggling. I hope that this helps you and would love to hear if you have any other suggestions on how to keep weight gain to a minimum during lunchtime.
