I did that for sooooo long... It's a hard shift as you can either: get up regular time, do stuff until you have to go to work, then try to go to bed as soon as you get home (which doesn't really happen as it take a couple of hours to wind down). OR, you can stay up after work and get up just in time to get ready for work (which denies you daylight etc.).

Whichever way you go, plan your meals around it. So, if you're getting up right before work, then have breakfast at home before work, snack at work, lunch, snack, dinner (when you get home), and wind down before going to bed.

If you're getting up at a regular time, have breakfast and lunch before work at home, then have snack, dinner at work, snack, and that way, you can allow yourself to have another snack right when you get home.

Try to have high fiber foods for snacks and balance out with a source of low-fat protein.

Also, however your schedule fits, try to keep doing daily work outs - even if only a good walk before work or at your meal break.

HTH!!!

Hmmm I'm struggling with the same problems. I'm thinking of mapping out a menu for the week and including snacks that aren't hard to prepare like fruit and veggie sticks. Let me try that this week and get back to you! Oh and drinking water or green tea helps me beat the munchies too.

I keep Zone bars and South Beach bars in my car for those snack attacks. Fruit is always good, as are vegetables, but the bars are something that won't go bad. :-)

I agree with Stephanie - make sure you have them handy so you don't have to prepare anything. You can just grab & eat it!

Keep fruit and veggies on hand for those snack attacks and start by drinking a big glass of water then seeing how you feel.

I've heard Snickers Marathon Bars are really, really good. I've yet to try them since they're pretty expensive.

Drink plenty of water!

Take fruits and veggies to snack on.

Fiber One Bars have been a godsend for me!

Hello Everyone,
I recently got a job that usually requires me to work from 3-10:30pm or so. There is a quick "lunch" break and a couple of 10 minute breaks thrown in there. However, everytime I get off of work, I find that I am reaching for the fringe. I was wondering if anyone had any strategies for beating the after work munchies that always seem to get me.
Thanks
Elyse
