It sounds like you are on the right track for identifying problem areas.

I hope you don't mind, but I had a little peek at your Nutrition Tracker. I think that what and how much you have for breakfast is the main culprit. Try to aim for nutritionally dense food. Wholegrain Toast with peanut butter ... great. You could build on that with a piece of fruit, and perhaps some Greek Yoghurt. If you like Baked Beans, try them on toast and have some fruit as well.

Take some healthy snacks with you to work, as well as a healthy lunch. Ensure that a good source of protein is in them, and also take some fruit which will help with hunger and your 5+ a day. Having some nuts on hand is great to help with snacks or meals.

Coach Jen mentioned Banana - that is always my go-to for a snack and/or part of my meal. I find that bananas with a little green on the skin is more filling than a riper banana.

Hard boiled eggs are also a great snack or part of your meal and helps with protein and satiety Here is a link for shelling them VERY quickly - I've tried it and it REALLY WORKS and saves TONS of time.

Good luck,

Those are great findings! Do you eat breakfast on your way to work, or not until you get there? Would it help to have a small snack (like a banana) before you leave so you aren't tempted to stop for something?

So my coach on the premium coaching page suggested I write about what I've learned about my diet since I started tracking. My findings are:
1. Weekday mornings are rough for me. I either want to snack on chips, or stop at a fast food place on my way to work.
2. Evening snacking is no longer a problem for me!
3. I need to incorporate more fruits and veggies into my diet.

I'm doing this activity because it was suggested by the coaching staff, and I believe if I am lucky enough to receive any comments, they should be helpful!

Have a great weekend spark friends!

We only fail when we quit trying!
