Hi all you office workers.
I'm just curious how much you guys eat during a working day. Our work kitchen is tiny and not always left clean. So I try to be prepared with pre made lunches. But I snack a lot. I'm not sure if this is hunger or boredom. I sit down for most the days, but always go out on my lunch either to the shop or a walk. Just for 15 mins.
I lost almost 40lbs on ww last year so I know I'm not overeating. I just want to compare (I start slimming world tomorrow btw)
10.30 - banana
11.30 - some sort of cereal bar
Lunch - always make something - salad/pasta/rice/smaller portion of last nights meal/jacket potato + pack of crisps most days
2ish - apple
3ish - Grapes or melon
4ish - yogurt
Then I have a workout after work and eat my evening meal about 7. I know I'd be on plan always but I really don't know if I'm routine eating or actually hungry. Those times are guesses. But that's the general pattern.
I'd say that sounds ok - eating little and often is usually good! I'm new to sw though so i can't claim to be an expert
Hi sww... That looks fine to me bug I guess you'd need to see what your losses look like. I have a microwave at work so have two scrambled eggs around 10am (I just don't eat first thing- never hungry and don't have time at home). That keeps me really full for a few hours as its a pure protein meal. If I go to the gym at lunch I have a banana before I leave then chicken salad followed by yoghurt and fruit around 2.
I am rarely hungry after that but I have a couple of alpen lights after my evening meal as I like to snack after dinner so I'm having roughly the same as you overall. I think you'll do great with sw x
I work in an office Hun, I have to take my own food as we do not have kitchen facilities we can use only a canteen to buy from.
Feel free to check out my food diary, the link is in my signature. Hopefully we can all share some ideas with each other xxx
I usually just take seconds of whatever I made for dinner. Gets me some odd looks sometimes! Hehe
I work in an office, and actually find I eat less when I'm at work as I'm usually really busy and don't have time to be bored.
On my way into work on a morning I usually call into tesco and pick up some fruit for breakfast - usually have this about 10am. If I'm still hungry, or just fancy something, I might have a cup of tea and a HiFi Light at about 11am.
At 12pm I leave my desk and go for a walk - usually for 20 minutes or so. Then when I get back I have my lunch, about 12.30pm. I usually have Finn Crisps topped with Low Low, or if I'm particularly hungry I might have a jacket potato with cheese, baked beans and salad.
I finish work at 4pm, so usually get home around 4.40pm. It really depends how hungry I am as to when I have my tea, but it's usually between 5.30-6.30pm. I will have something like pasta bake, which keeps me full for the rest of the night.
Usually between 7-8 I'll have a hot chocolate and a HiFi, just for something sweet while I relax and watch the TV :)
Hi I too work in an office,I have a microwave here so I usually take left overs from the night before ie chilli or cottage pie spag bol . My problem is I finish work around 2.30pm and get my son from school but my husband doesnt get home till 7pm so I find im hungry late afternoon probably boredom more than anything else. I try and save my HEB so I can snack on cereal or Alpen lights before dinner. Its a struggle though. I think it would be easier on me if I worked full time.
I think that looks fine!
I work in an office too and my day goes like this.
730am - 2egg omlette with mushrooms, baked beans & a cup of tea
930ish - banana
11ish - pear
1215 lunch - chicken salad & mugshot, melon & apple.
3ish - Mullerlight.
Finish work at 4 and have tea about 5/530. I'm usually not hungry after my tea but if I am I always have my syns or a hea/heb.
i'm beginning to doubt myself now, am I eating too much?
My work day tends to look like this:
In work for 7.30am. Breakfast of fruit, cereal & yogurt or baked eggs, or an omelette (make the night before & heat up when I get there.
Mid morning: a piece of fruit or some carrot sticks
Lunch: something leftover from the night before. I use a food flask as it means no need to microwave & also helps with portion control
Mid afternoon - but only if I'm hungry - a piece of fruit
Home for 7: gym or SW 4 nights a week till 8pm then dinner.
I tend to get to 9pm & realise I'venot used any syns so will have a hot choc options with squirty cream or a glass of wine.
How is the omelette heated up kingled??!
i always end up with fruit or cereal for breakfast as I eat at work and I do get a bit bored. Might be nice to make a veggie omelette that I can microwave if its not too bad reheated.
A microwave I would guess.

I poached eggs this morning at work in the micro. I just use the cling film method in boiling water and its lush. I dont have a microwave at home so its really handy in the office .
