Your food intake naturally has an indirect impact on how you work. Just think over – have you been sluggish, are you active, are you bursting with energy all the time, or perhaps even been aggressive! Your diet may determine this – what was in the breakfast to begin your work the way you did today? Are you snacking on too much? Have you been looking for tips about healthy eating?
Healthy eating for healthy work
Kuza Biashara helps you with few healthy eating tips:
Take time to prepare you meals
The more you rely on take-away breakfast or lunch, the more likely you are to consume excess calories. Excess calories is equal to heart risks, diabetes and obesity and related disorders. As you cook your meal for the day, you are avoiding the risk by keeping yourself on the move and preparing something nutritious after all!
Look for nutritional information
If you think you cannot cook and only dine out, make sure you look at the nutritional information on the menu card. Spot food-joints that offer healthy foods.
Don’t eat at your workstation
Eating at your desk may not be a good practice. It can have your workstation mess all over. Worse, remaining stationary for so long and blinking at the computer as you eat your lunch will only make it worse. Get your circulatory system to pump up well. A little movement and a breath of fresh air will keep you fine.
Planning your diet
Have a solid breakfast that will keep you out from extreme hunger at lunchtime and you this way you stay out of consuming excess calories throughout the day.
Size and colors
Research has proven that eating out of odd colors, say a blue dishware will prevent overeating. The same holds for the size. A large dishware means asking for more food! Smaller size automatically cuts down your appetite.
Have lots of water and fruit juices. Say yes to natural drinks. Avoid synthetic drinks.
Healthy foods like fruits and vegetables salads, sprouts, brown-bread sandwiches and yogurt make for some really snacks. Just trash out all the flyers picturing sinful junk. There’s nothing like freshness of natural foods.
Above all, have a balanced diet. Chalk out a week’s diet plan containing good portions of proteins, vitamins, carbs and fiber with little but healthy fats distributed through the day.
Your productivity at work may well be determined by what you eat. Watch out on your eating habits at work. Do consult a nutritionist if you think you need further help on healthy eating.
