From Zone to Atkins to Paleo, you’ve probably heard of a million dietary plans to help you eat better and lose weight. But many diets — fad or otherwise — require restrictions we can’t sustain, and we unrealisticaly expect immediate results. With all the problems surrounding diet plans, how can you pick one that actually works? All it takes is a little self-knowledge and dose of reality.
Dear Lifehacker, I recently changed careers and now work from home for half the week. How do you plan your eating? Any meal or snack suggestions to keep my energy up and minimise chair flab? I don’t want to raid the fridge every time I get munchy, but I don’t have a lot of time to cook big breakfasts and lunches either.
Every time I walk past the office kitchen I want a Pepsi Max. Each day, around 10.30am I allow myself to think about lunch. When I think about watching sport on my lunch break I instantly want chicken. When I watch a movie I wonder where the chocolate is. If I’ve learned anything in doing my juice fast it’s this: we all have strange habits when it comes to food and, most of the time, we aren’t even fully aware of them.
