I would keep healthy things on hand that you really enjoy. Feel free to have something to eat at the restaurant but drink a full glass of ice water first, wait ten plus minutes, and slowly savor whatever you are eating. Stop after a few bites to listen to your body.
Some healthy snack options are: apples, almonds, pretzels, dark chocolate squares, string cheese, etc.
Hope this helps
You should know about MSG. MSG is added to food for the
addictive effect it has on the human body. It is in most processed foods, but
it is in extremely high amounts in fast foods.
So, when you are working there it is really important to understand that
if you eat a little of the food it will cause your body to crave more of these
foods. My advice is to pack your lunch, and avoid the downward spiral. Here is a link to learn about MSG. http://www.rense.com/general52/msg.htm
If there is one recommendation I could give you, it's find a job that is outside of the food industry. I know that's not easy, but but in applications until you find somewhere. It will save your health! In the meantime, can you bring something healthy to snack on as an alternative? Good luck!
I have female friend, working at the restaurant but thin body. She told me that when she saw the process of making food, then she would not eat them hooked.
So, she suggests often hear of "thin-bodied employees who work in restaurants". She said the motivation.
