Lunchbox Plan

Would you like to lose weight easily without the need of horrible tasting meal replacement drinks? Do you often eat at irregular times due to work commitments? Maybe you already eat healthily and wonder why you are gaining weight rather than losing it?

If this sounds like you then I have a solution for you!

Try filling up a lunchbox with salad leaves, spinach leaves, peppers, carrots, tomatoes, beetroot, be as creative as you like. You can also add some sunflower, flax or pumpkin seeds and some unsalted nuts if you like. Make sure you have either chicken, fish or turkey for the protein. You are starting to get the idea that you can put quite a lot into your lunchbox! No mayonnaise by the way!

Keep your lunchbox in the fridge or cool bag and just start eating from it at regular intervals, ideally every 2-3 hours. What you do is go to your lunchbox, eat a few mouthfuls ( take your time when eating as well!), put it back in the fridge, do some work then do this again throughout the day. The principle here is to graze rather than sitting down specially to eat meals.

Eating this way will ensure your blood glucose levels remain steady throughout the day, your metabolism keeps working efficiently and you avoid those annoying afternoon energy slumps so you can get through your workload much easier. This also means that you won’t get that guilt feeling from eating a biscuit or snack in the afternoon just to give you an energy boost!

The great thing about this is that you will feel that you have a lot more energy, get more done and because you have been eating regularly, you won’t feel hungry and overeat in the evening. It’s best to drink water with your food to help digestion and the absorption of all the nutrients.

Enjoy!
