Check out these 6 unorthodox tips, along with the foods to eat at work and workout schedule recommendations that you may not have heard before. Follow these tips for just one month and see the difference it can make!


1. Be A Food Snob!

A food snob is someone who is very particular about the food they eat, and no, I’m not talking about tracking your food, but rather choosing the right foods to eat! In an office environment, you’ll often see someone bring treats into the office, and your colleagues crowding around to take one. Being a food snob, you should say no and not accept the food just to appease the person giving it to you, especially if you know you don’t really fancy it or like it. You don’t need to waste calories on something you don’t enjoy.

Think, do I really need it? Do I really want it? Will I enjoy it? If the answer is no, then don’t take it.


2. Increase Your Daily Steps

9-to-5ers know the struggle of getting in their daily steps. The minimum you should be getting is 10k steps, but you’re probably getting more like 3k. In these cases, you need to try and increase your steps as much as you can. You can achieve this by walking to the furthest bathroom when at work, parking further away from the entrance at work/shops, going for a walk on your lunch break, etc. This may sound a little silly, but you’d be surprised how these little changes and extra steps can make a difference to your total count day-to-day.


3. Prioritisation

One of the top things I always get asked is, “Help! I don’t have time to cook or work out.” Really, these are just excuses! At the end of the day, you just have to prioritize these things. To cook a fairly decent healthy meal takes around 15 to 20 minutes.

Shameless plug incoming If you watch my channel for full day of eating videos, you’ll see various healthy meal ideas that take no time at all to cook. And let’s be real, if you’ve got time to watch my 10-25 minute video, you’ve got time to cook!

For those who say they don’t have time to train, again, prioritise! A decent session can be done in 45 to 60 minutes. If you give up one TV show, then you definitely have time to train. Those who tell me they don’t have time can most likely tell me what’s happening in multiple different TV programs. Stop using “you don’t have time” as an excuse if you don’t want to go to the gym.


4. Foods To Eat Whilst At Work

There are two things you can do to stay on track with your diet while at work: meal prep your meals to take to work or pay a little extra at the shops to have the healthier option.

Easy foods to bring to work/school are:

  • Fajitas/Beef Wraps
  • Stir-frys
  • Gala Apples
  • Berries
  • Protein Bars
  • Chicken Salad
  • High fibre Cereals


5. Sustainability

Whatever routine you follow in the gym, make sure you can sustain it easily. If you’re someone who is on and off with the gym, don’t force yourself to commit to training every single day of the workweek if you can’t do it. If it gets to the point where you hate the gym, you need to scale it back a bit and find a new routine. Remember, you don’t need to train five days a week to see results. If you can consistently train three days a week, then only train three days a week. You never know, you may actually find that you enjoy it and may think you can manage another day and so forth, and that is how you see progress. Those who try to
