Four a Day
Fruit is vital part of healthy eating so if you if you dont feel like chomping your way through an apple or pear during your scheduled breaks, why not use the time when your sat at your desk. Particularly useful if youre not really a fruit lover, because psychologically you are doing it in work time with the added bonus of leaving yourself free during breaks to stretch your legs. Change The Way You Think
Integrated exercise helps you to change the way you think about food. In short, you begin to see food in terms of exercise and not calories. This can be a great motivator because you are firmly in control and are able to link various exercises and tasks with specific food intake.
