Work at home

I have had a home hair salon for the past 18 years. There are times I love it and times I hate it.

I work from home and I think it helps me to stay on my diet, because I don't have the temptation of eating out for lunch. It does restrict my activity level quite a bit though, since I basically get out of bed and go straight to my computer.

I go for a 30 minute walk every morning before I start work. If I didn't do that I think I would feel really house bound. I'm really glad not to have to drive to work everyday!!! :-)

work from home

I work from home and travel. I find it challenging to stick with an eating and exercise plan because my choices and enviorment are constantly changing.

Working Nights

I dont work at home but I work a night schedule. I work 7pm to 7am and find it hard to eat right and to not skip meals and to find time to rest and exercise. HELP!!!

I work the same schedule and what I have found that helps is working my 3 nights consecutively. On my "turn-around" day, I drag myself out of the bed after a few hours sleep and hit the gym. It has a two-fold benefit of giving me an energy boost to get through the rest of the day and helps me rest better at night. The eating is difficult, but I find that if I eat several small light meals and drink extra water (about 2L-3L per 24hr) I can limp along with my meals until I'm back on a regular schedule. I also hit the gym for the rest of the week, including the afternoon of the day I go back to work. It has made me SO much more successful in my workout regimen and I feel much more productive on those off-work days.

I work swing shifts, ex. 9pm - 6am, 6am - 3pm, 3pm - 12pm.... I haven't adapted at all yet, so much of my time is spent either working, doing cleaning, or catching up on my screwed up sleep schedule

Better for Diet

I work from home 4 days out of the week (sometimes 5) and think it really helps keep me on track with my diet. My wife is a stay at home mother, and she does all the cooking and we know exactly what we are eating. Also, not tempted with all of the junk food you can get at the office :)

when I can spend more time at home, I am so much more healthy!
I too get home bound- so will go running or go to the gym -for fun...
Also, being able to plan fresh healthy meals is fantastic!
however, I now live in a cubicle downtown and travel all the time- total salt bloat ;(

New: The PEERtrainer Cheat System
The PEERtrainer Cheat System is a new, simple to follow system for eating. The objective is to help guide you towards a way of eating that will make it easier to lose weight, give you more energy and help you feel better. It is free, easy to follow, and a little unusual and controversial. Most of all it is working. This link will take you to a blog post where you can download a FREE copy of the Cheat System Diet Cookbook! The Cheat System has also been turned into a major book to be published May 6th, 2014. According to Srini Pillay, MD, Harvard Medical School: "It works in a real way with how human psychology works...I love that it relates closely to how the brain likes to function... without crazy effort and with significant short-term gains."
Here is a preview of the cover:
