5 Signs Your Lunch Needs a Makeover

Don’t let your midday meal destroy your good intentions if you’re trying to lose weight. You have to change your lunch method if you are making any of the following mistakes.

  1. You eat out all the time: you can surely find healthy options at many places including fast food restaurants but the healthiest option is to bring your homemade lunch if you’re trying to take control in your food. By making few extra servings of dinner, you can save time and health.
  2. You always wash it down with juice or soda: occasional treat makes no problem but you could add thousands of unwanted calories in your diet in a month time if you use a can of soda with your lunch frequently. Diet soda is no exception also. So, it’s better to opt for water or tea instead of soda and juice.
  3. You don’t think about nutrition: when you’re ordering lunch, it’s an easy option to go for the cheapest and fastest but in order to keep you energized throughout the day, the midday meal should cover your nutritional requirements especially if you’ve to do a workout. Consider about your daily intake of important minerals and vitamins instead of going for another carb-filled, greasy lunch.
  4. You don’t eat enough: you’ve to make sure that your meal keeps you full throughout the afternoon in order to prevent the afternoon junk food snack while you may think that the healthiest choice is to take a 90-calorie soup after fast food. To help keep you full, choose healthy lunch options with good amounts of fiber and protein. Make a habit to take healthy snacks like fruits or store-bought snacks at your table if you’re going for an afternoon snack towards a vending machine.
  5. You eat mindlessly: though we can’t always enjoy our lunch by going away from our desks but you’ll feel hungry soon after by immediately eating your lunch in front of your computer. By eating slowly and taking at least 15 minutes away from your desk to eat, you can help register your brain that you’re full.
