Eat Like It's Your Job

"To keep hunger down and energy up all day, include complex carbs, lean protein, and healthy fat at every meal," says Christine Palumbo, RD, a Chicago-based nutritionist. Here are more of her eat-healthy tips:

  • For on-the-go breakfasts, pack 3/4-cup servings of easy-to-grab cereal (like Kellogg's Frosted Mini-Wheats) in advance. Add dried fruit and nuts. Store in your glove compartment for rushed mornings (like today).
  • Brown-bag it. Make sandwiches with crisp veggies, like red peppers or cucumbers, for lunch. You'll get vitamins, a satisfying crunch, and fiber to help fill you up, Palumbo says.
  • For high-protein, stay-with-you-all-day snacks, bring in hard-boiled eggs, light mozzarella sticks, and peanut-butter-sandwich squares (on whole-grain bread) and refrigerate them.
  • Tempted by the vending machine? Palumbo suggests snacking on "anything with nuts," like Snickers, peanut M&M's, or mixed nuts. The nuts provide filling protein and fat.
  • For instant energy, eat fruit. "It's great for the office because it contains fructose, which is a fast-acting carb, so it provides a quick boost," says Palumbo. Bonus: Eating an apple after lunch can clean your teeth.
  • slump? Get a tall nonfat latte. "It has 100 calories and 10 grams of protein, which is about the same as half a serving of meat," Palumbo explains.
  • If your car is on fast-food autopilot, get a plain hamburger. Most small burgers have fewer calories than breaded-chicken sandwiches.
