When you are in office the most important things on your mind is to finish the important agendas for the day.

The people in sales jobs are in an even more worse condition as they don’t have a fixed time for meals. The mostly have lunch late in the afternoon or many a times they skip lunch as they were busy attending sales calls with their clients and sometimes the meetings get stretched till late evening.
Having seen both these sides of working scenarios I really had to suffer initially as managing time was a bit tough for me. Due to my hectic working schedule I had to miss my workouts and also my meals went up for a toss. I used to have a meal as soon as I would be free and there was no fixed time for that. In a few weeks itself I realized that I have put on enough weight which had taken me almost three months to lose, thanks to my body’s slow metabolic rate.
I knew I had to do something with my the erratic timing of my meals as depending on workout’s alone was not at all going to help. I thought of carrying fruits in my work bag but that was not such a cool idea as fruits can be a bit messy and wont help in keeping hunger at bay for a longer period of time. I wanted something which can be had anywhere anytime and which will keep me fuller for longer period of time.
