Are you eating healthily too? If the only planning your lunch involves is where you'll get your sarnie from, you're missing a trick. Ready-made food can be high in calories and fat, making it harder to eat healthily and keep those pounds off. 
Ditch those prepacked sandwiches for healthier choices at lunch.

If you are somebody who makes a dash to the supermarket for a sandwich and a bag of crisps come lunch time, you are not alone.
We take a paltry 19 minutes for lunch and 78 per cent of us plump for a sandwich. Nearly half of us will wolf it down at our desk, too.

But some simple forward planning can transform your midday meal.
Healthy, well-balanced meals can be quick to make and much cheaper than something ready made.

If you work, you can take a packed lunch or even microwave a baked potato if you have a decent staff kitchen. Take time out the evening before to make sure you have something ready to take in the morning.

If you are reaching for a drink...
Remember the short and long term effects of cutting of cutting down on alcohol:
Drinking less reduces the longer term risk of serious diseases such as cancer, liver disease and stroke; improves the condition of your skin; can have a positive effect on sleep patterns, and can even boost your sex life. Worth remembering next time you’re at the bar.

Stress less:
Some people drink alcohol to relax, but in reality alcohol can make you feel even more stressed out. Try not to make alcohol key to your after work wind down, and try some alternative stress-busters like hitting the gym with your mates or opting for a bath with bubbles instead of a shower.

Exercising the day after the night before
Drinking alcohol the night before could have a negative influence on your performance the following day. Sports dietician Jane Griffin says, “it’s not possible to perform at your best if you’re feeling any of the effects normally associated with a hangover such as dehydration, a headache and hypersensitivity to outside stimuli such as light and sound”.

Even if you’re not experiencing the symptoms of a hangover, elite sports nutritionist Matt Lovall adds that “exercising the day after drinking alcohol can mean you have an all round lower quality training session or sporting activity.
