You just have to eat accordingly, which is the ugly truth. It’s all about diet! If you eat less than what you burn per day, you WILL lose weight. Exercise is wonderful for fitness and overall health, but is NOT required in order to lose weight.

You don’t have to eat a lot less to lose weight (but you have to eat less). You don’t have to move a lot more to lose weight (but you do have to move more). You don’t have to be perfect to lose weight, you just have to do better. You have to stick with the changes even if you are struggling.

Monitoring your calorie intake is a good place to start, especially when your activity is limited because of your job. Keep in mind that you must create a 3,500-calorie deficit to lose a pound of fat.

You can gain control over what you eat while sitting at your desk. Start by filling your diet with healthier foods that may help trim your belly, including fruits, vegetables, whole grains and healthy proteins such as poultry, seafood and beans. Take a little time each week to plan ahead what you’re going to eat at each meal to limit last-minute, high-calorie food choices.


  • TIP #1  Ditch the Drinks  Soda, coffee, mochas, energy drinks…whatever you’re drinking, it it’s not water, just ditch it. Having these drinks on your desk all day will not only increase your calorie intake, but will contribute to other unwanted damage to your teeth, your heart and digestive system. Sugary and caffeinated drinks will cause rise and falls of your energy and ability to think clearly which will decrease your productivity overall. If your boss knew that, they’d ban everything but water too.
  • TIP #2 Lunch In Versus Lunch Out Packing your lunch at home when you’re NOT hungry and in a hurry will help you to pack smart choices as a opposed to the option of racing to the nearest restaurant when you’re starving on your lunch break. With the menu full of pictures and a growling stomach, you’re less likely to choose healthy options (if there are any.)
  • TIP #3  Take a Candy Bowl Detour Every office seems to have them. If you walk by it, your hand might grab some. Just take a detour, go a different direction. Make it out of sight, out of mind. If you’re craving something sweet in the afternoon, it’s likely your body needs a nutritious pick me up. Try an apple with peanut butter.
