Very few people manage to eat healthy lunch at work and this results in frustrating weight gain.
An important part of eating for fitness and/or fat loss is to keep your metabolism strong all day long with small, sensible meals.
The American Heart Association News knows it’s difficult to make work lunches healthy. Here are a few reasons why most people struggle to eat well during lunch and how you can change that.
Lunch at work can be unexciting, and unhealthy. You’re often in a rush and looking for something quick, the cafeteria only has so many options, and the microwave is the best option for a hot meal. However, it doesn’t have to be a miserable experience if you listen to what the American Heart Association News has to say.
The Harris Poll for the American Heart Association and the food service company Aramark conducted an online survey to gauge workers attitudes about nutritious lunches. The results showed that over half of workers said they struggled to make lunch healthy, while 91 percent were interested in making their work lunches healthier.
But you can find many ways to make your work lunches healthier.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, yes. But lunch is also incredibly important for keeping the body fueled and energized throughout the day, and for getting proper healthy nutrition.
Assuming people do not often get much nutritional value out of their breakfasts during the week, lunch is the next best way to get your healthy serving recommendations, according to Health Day.
