Instead of ordering takeout or spending your lunch hour in front of the office vending machine, why don’t you spend some time in the morning packing your lunch? Doing so could be exactly what you need to shed those extra pounds.
A 2017 study found a strong association between meal planning, better diet quality, more dietary variety, and a lower risk of obesity. Additionally, a separate study found that participants who ate home-cooked meals at least five times per week were 28% less likely to be overweight than those who only ate home-cooked meals three times or less per week.
So with that said, why don’t you spend a few minutes during the evening to plan and prepare your meals so that in the morning you can just grab your lunch and go?
