Don’t eat lunch at your desk

New findings have shown that eating lunch at your desk during office hours could increase the amount of calories consumed throughout the day. The study showed that those that were distracted by their computer screen while they were eating were likely to feel less full than those that concentrated on their food. The result is that people end up snacking more, which in the long run could lead to weight gain. Work related stress also has a negative impact on your diet, because although it can decrease your appetite, stress can make you crave snacks high in fat and sugar. The secret to staying slim? Come lunchtime, go outside and get some fresh air, and try disconnecting from your work and focus on time to refuel.
