Although I’m lucky enough to have a work environment surrounded by nutritious food, even though the odd box of chocolates make their way in, many of us don’t. Employers often have the standard coffee maker and box of stale doughnuts. Stop blaming your job for making you overweight by using these techniques.Bring your own lunch: Yes, I understand it takes almost 5 minutes to do and you’re too tired to do it at night, and too rushed to do it in the morning, but do it anyway. Packing your own healthy snacks will save you money on buying new, bigger clothes and especially eating out everyday.DO NOT (I repeat: DO NOT) leave candy dishes on your desk: This is an open invitation for mindless snacking on most likely fattening treats all day. A few handfuls of candy add up more than you think. If the candy is for others, provide treats you don’t necessary like to avoid temptation. Stock your workplace with healthier alternatives: If you’re absolutely against bringing your own lunch, try to bring in fresh fruit and vegetables, nuts, whole grain bagels and other snacks to keep at your desk or cubicle. This way you don’t have to carry your lunch everyday, yet you still have something healthy to eat.Talk to your boss: If your employer does provide snacks, request healthier ones. Remind your boss that healthier employees have less sick days and are more productive.Just say no: It’s a very nice gesture when coworkers bring in sweets to share, but just remember you’re not obligated to eat it. It’s ok to politely refuse. As the old saying goes, you can lead a coworker to the dessert table, but you can’t make them eat!Share your get healthy goal: You certainly don’t have to publicize your goals, but if you’re trying to lose weight you might get added support you need. Even better, you might recruit partners in this. Have you mastered the art of healthy eating at work? Share your tips!
