Don’t allow your job to affect your weight management.

Some jobs may require you to sit at a desk for most of the day. Others may keep you on your feet for a long time. Whatever type of job you have, do not allow it to affect your weight management.

Always consume a nutritious diet that meets your energy requirements for the day. Pack healthy snacks and hydrate with water throughout the day.

Similarly, do not allow an office job to prevent you from getting those calories burning. There are many things that you can do to keep yourself active.

Make simple changes

Make simple changes wherever you can. For example, if your offices have both stairs as well as elevators, choose the use the stairs. Forget about asking other work colleagues to do little favours for you such as make photocopies of documents. Get up and do it for yourself! In fact, offer them some help if you want to increase your calorie burnout for the day!
