For me, meal prep is key to maintaining a healthy diet during a busy work schedule. On Sundays, I take a few hours to prepare meals and snacks for the week. That way, I can just grab something from the fridge on my way out the door in the morning.
One thing that works for me is to make sure I have healthy options available when I do need to eat out. I look for restaurants that have salads or other healthy options, or I’ll even pack a lunch and eat in the park if the weather’s nice.
I’ve been experimenting with intermittent fasting, and it’s actually been helpful for me. I skip breakfast and have my first meal around noon, then have my last meal around 7 or 8 pm. It’s helped me maintain my weight and stay focused during the day.
Drinking enough water is also important for me. I keep a water bottle at my desk and make sure to refill it throughout the day. It helps me stay hydrated and avoid snacking when I’m actually just thirsty.
