How to avoid weight gain and Stay Slim While Working a Desk Job

Everyone wants to be slim and smart. Most office workers, particularly those with desk jobs, spend most of their days seated at a computer. In a situation where you're supposed to sit still for eight to nine hours a day, it's quite simple to gain weight.

There are several steps you may take to avoid gaining weight when working at a desk job, as well as to reduce weight if you've already gained it.

Meals and Snacks That Are Good For You

Prepare your lunch.

Packed lunch is a great start to overcoming weight gain in the office. It's easy to get in the habit of shopping, eating in the canteen, or going to a restaurant with friends. But often these foods are high in calories and fat. You can control these factors while preparing your healthy food.
Make sure lunch always includes lean protein and fruits or vegetables. Combining these foods will keep you satisfied during your long workday.
Have fun preparing your lunch. Buy a new lunch box and some small tipper ware for proper packaging.
Accelerate your morning routine and pack lunch in the evening. Whether it's leftovers or salads, if your lunch is packed in the evening and ready for breakfast, you're more likely to take it with you to work.
Healthy packed lunch options may include spinach salad, grilled chicken, vegetables, and gravy; Two wraps of lettuce with cold cuts and cheese and a slice of fruit; Wrap whole meat with hummus with chopped vegetables, avocado, and a slice of fruit. Or homemade peppers with chopped cheese, chopped onions, and avocado.

Choose healthy eating options.

Whether it's a company meeting or someone's birthday, you'll probably eat a few meals a day. Try to stick to healthy choices while eating out. Remember that restaurant meals are usually high in calories.
If you are eating in a restaurant or cafe, find small portions. Do they offer half a salad sandwich or a cup of soup?
Find low-calorie foods like salads.
Share a voice with a friend. This will automatically halve your portion and limit the calories you eat. This is also a good idea if you want to buy something better.
Ask your device to turn off half of it before your server arrives. When it disappears, it goes crazy.
Research restaurants and menus before you arrive. This will help you to identify which healthy options are available. This will help you prepare without being tempted by special offers and will help you maintain a healthy diet.

Healthy breakfast

You will occasionally need breakfast, especially if you work long hours or have more than four or five hours between meals. If you can't rely on the healthier options you can get from vending machines, make your snacks. So you will not be tempted by sweets!
Snacks should always contain protein and fruits or vegetables. This powerful team provides you with the energy and fuel you need to cope with a busy day.
Snacks should be in "snack" format, not snacks. Already stick to a shared snack or set yourself a calorie limit of 200 calories per snack.
Healthy breakfast options include carrots and hams, low-fat cheese and apples, celery with peanut butter, or low-fat yogurt with fruit.

Jump into the candy bowl.

Candy bowls, vending machines, and break rooms can be filled with delicious sweets and other high-calorie items. Ignore these options and stick to full lunches and snacks.
Don't keep your candy box or drawer in your office. If it is difficult to get your hands on your partner's candy jar, avoid running to his desk or going the other way to reach your goal.
Don't look at the vending machine. Even with the best intentions, seeing this candy bar is sometimes too imaginative. Don't make fun of each other and stick to your plan.

Stay moist

At least eight glasses of 64 ounces (2 liters) of clear non-sweet liquids, such as water, iced tea, or calorie-free flavored water, will help you maintain a healthy diet and body. Often, thirst makes them hungry and forces them to eat junk food or overeat.
Monitor the fluid you use by purchasing a labeled water bottle. This will help you to track and reach your water target throughout the day.
Even mild dehydration has side effects. Dehydration can often lead to afternoon fatigue and dizziness. Avoid taking sips during the day.
Avoid carbonated beverages and sugary drinks. They are very attractive and can help you stay alert and exercise, but they are full of empty calories in the form of sugar. If you still need caffeine, consider coffee or tea with skim milk and limited sugar.
Increasing Your Physical Activity

Move every 60-90 minutes.

Prolonged sitting has a variety of side effects, from weight gain and back problems to muscle loss and bone loss. Move every hour to avoid these health problems. Don't let yourself get stuck on your desk for too long.
Set a timer on your phone or computer to remind yourself to move.
Drink plenty of water. The more water you drink, the more often you stop at the toilet.
Set a goal to get up and move at least five to eight times a day and track your progress weekly. Moving exercise is very impactful for avoiding weight gain. if you do this you will be looking smart and slim very soon.

Count your steps.

Pedometers and fitness bracelets are common ways to track the amount of activity and movements you perform throughout the day. Focusing on at least 10,000 degrees or about five kilometers per day can help you lose or maintain weight and stay fit.
Find ways to walk more during the day. For example, climb stairs instead of elevators, park farther away, get up to deliver a message instead of email, or walk to a bathroom away from your office.
Download a free app to your phone, buy a cheap pedometer to keep track of your daily activities in a fun way, or spring for a sports watch or bracelet.

Take a fitness break.

You don't need gym or running shoes to add some fitness to your day. Try chair exercises and other small exercises that you can do from the comfort of your desk. Spend 10-15 minutes in these activities during your lunch break to disrupt sitting and limit the unhealthy effects of prolonged sitting. Many online sites offer chair exercise ideas. 
Check your schedule the night before and see if you can get a few minutes of exercise - 10 minutes before the meeting or 20 minutes during the downtime. Plan to remember!

Do strength exercises.

If you don't have time for the gym, add some simple weight lifting exercises to your week. Just two or three days a week is a good goal. Strength training helps build muscle, burn calories and get fit!
Consider buying a smaller set of weights for bicep curls, side raises, or shoulder presses. Or look for office furniture that will help you perform specific isometric activities, such as pushing against a wall, pulling from a stable chair, or lifting a leg. Replace your office chair with a fitness ball to keep your core muscles strong.
