It is that age old problem that you want to lose weight but don't know where to start. You are too busy to pre make your food and you are unwilling to eat out of Tupperware. Driving through is usually your way to get through the day right? Sound familiar?
Before I get started here is my little disclaimer. The healthiest way to go will always be making your own food, your own self. You will know EXACTLY what is being put in to your food without any doubt or question.
I know that being a law enforcement officer you are always on the go and do not readily have a microwave ready, dispatchers I know we are stuck behind a desk all day and do not feel like always making food or heating it up ourselves. Pickups always seem to sound better! If you are in the Police Academy then taking healthy meals with you is the way to go, however you can apply these tips when you are out studying for your exams and training.
Here are a few tips to help get you started.
Most fast food restaurants are not known for their healthy options. It's called fast food for a reason, for the most part it is not made fresh, which is why it is not the healthiest. The food has additional sugars and salt added to keep the food preserved for longer periods of time.
Remember desert is a treat and not a necessity!
If you listened to the podcast I mentioned I would throw in a few examples of meals you make that will satisfy some cravings!
