Making personal changes can be difficult, but if you're overweight and struggling to shed pounds, it's time for you to make healthy living a priority. Do you manage to eat a healthy breakfast, but then find yourself heading a fast food restaurant for lunch? If so, you may need some tips for how to have a lunch that is low in fat but still filling.
For example, Eating Well magazine recommends that you go for a hearty soup at lunch, such as lentil soup. This is inexpensive, easy to make, filling and healthy for you. Also, rather than grabbing a fast food hamburger, you should consider getting a Mediterranean wrap that has grilled chicken, lettuce, cucumber, olives, tomatoes and feta cheese.
WebMD spoke to Connie Diekman, R.D., president of the American Dietetic Association, who said that if you made a healthy dinner, you should bring it along for lunch the next day.
"Leftovers are the perfect food to pack and take for lunch because you can control the portions and calories in the meal to ensure it will be nutritious, filling and delicious," Diekman told WebMD.
