1. Go for fresh not fried
It’s easy to fall into the trap of purchasing the unhealthier options when looking for something to eat on the go.
However, more people fall into the trap of eating fried foods just because they are deemed cheaper.
Ditch these high calorie foods and replace them with more organic foods such as fresh fruit, homemade protein bars.
2. Go easy on the seasoning and sauces
No one likes bland food and rightly so but adding too much seasoning or sauces to a healthy meal can actually take it the other way, to the darkside if you will.
Too much salt in your diet can make your body retain water giving the effect of weight gain so be mindful when picking a topping for your food.

7. Fail to prepare, prepare to fail
When you do head out make sure you take a bag with you that is made up of healthy snacks just in case the hunger strikes. Opt for dried fruits, granola, mixed nuts, fruit, protein bars or protein shakes, such as Whey Better.
All of which are easy to carry but will also be a lot healthier than anything else that you could pick and more than likely a lot cheaper.
