When I work with TOP Management in every office, I always see people who are striving to be fitter and younger. So once I asked the CEO of a very famous company why she eats right and always has a snack in her office. She said “ I need to fuel to think, I need to fuel to decide, I need fuel to run with best of my team who are a decade younger than me”

So eating at work is a simple principle of knowing what are you going to be doing for the next 2 hrs. Then learn to Snack to keep you healthy. HEALTHY SNACKS

When your hard at work and suddenly you’re famished, the hunger prangs start to kick in and the best option is to run to the nearest vending machine. 

Once you’ve eaten that guilt filled meal, you then begin to realise that your nutrition has taken a back seat. But Think Again! Are you really hungry? Or is it just that you’re bored or tired or stressed at work? If you aren’t really hungry then skip this meal.

Stack up on small snacks in your office drawer and you will notice the difference not only in your energy levels at work but also on your waistline. 

  1.Green Tea:  This is the Secret Fat Burner! It helps increase breakdown of fat, thereby enabling more calories to be burnt daily. Drinking atleast 4 cups of green tea a day can up your metabolism and also keeps you hydrated throughout the day. Another Secret from RYAN’s desk…. Green tea is known to boost Alpha Wave thinking….Ask me what this is and how it makes you sharper on your projects?

     2. Walnuts: Walnuts are high in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids 
    and antioxidants. Pair a handful of walnuts with a piece, 
    your favourite fruit, or a bowl of oatmeal for a fibre-rich morning
    snack that will help you feel full longer.

   3.Apples:Apples are loaded with pectin, which helps suppress your appetite.Eating an apple mid-day helps control blood sugar and may aid in weight loss. Eat an apple a day to keep the Doctor away! I had a client who ate 2 apples a day before each meal and lost 3 kgs in a month.

   4. Low Fat Yoghurt: The latest Superstar! Yoghurt increases the    intestinal friendly bacteria keeping the intestine healthy. 

      It also boosts immunity, aids in digestion and the absorption of  nutrients.

   5.Almonds:  Almonds are especially 
   good because you can munch on 
   them throughout the day. Almonds are
   protein-packed and have the good 
   kind of fat, so they satisfy hunger.

   6.Low Calorie Granola Bars: Granola bars typically made with a 

      combo of whole grains, nuts, seeds and dried fruit, are a good to  grab in-between meals to curb hunger. Look for bars that contain
      no more than 200 calories each.

  7.Water: Although not exactly a snack, lack of water throughout the day is often the culprit behind feelings of hunger, headaches, and midday dragging. Bottled water is something you definitely want to keep stored at work. Sip throughout the day and watch your productivity and mood improve.     

   8. Sprout salad: Sprouts are a healthy snack option that you could keep at your desk. Boil sprouts and add a little bit of salt and pepper or just add in some sliced cucumber and cherry tomatoes to drive your hunger away.

  9.Dark chocolates: Don't we all love to cheat on 

our diets once in a while? It is possible, provided you do it in a smart way. The remedy to sweet cravings is to have 2 cubes of dark chocolates. Opt for these bitter chocolates once in a while when you are tired of having salads and fruits, but make sure they’re made of 70% cocoa and not your milk chocolates.

  10.Buttermilk: Let’s just stick to tradition on this one. Buttermilk is a 
       good source of protein and calcium; also it is easy on the stomach.  Available in tetra packs and is easy to carry on the go. It also keeps  you hydrated and refreshes you.
