Do you become tired in the mid afternoon and crave a pick me up?
Most people do. However, by eating a lunch with 50 percent carbohydrates, 30 percent fat and 20 percent protein, you will stay full longer and avoid the craving for sugar.

In order to do this, you need to eat a meal high in fiber but low in sugar. Here are a few simple things to keep in the back of your mind when ordering out.

  1. Vegetables are very high in fiber so order a salad with chicken or steak.
  2. Buy a sandwich with some protein but plenty of vegetables and a small amount of mayonnaise.
  3. Opt to have a half sandwich with soup or salad. When you think about your choices before you order, you are making a conscious decision to eat well.
