sad desk lunch

15 thoughts everyone on a diet has at lunchtime

Office lunchtime is the undisputed enemy of the dieter.

STICKING TO YOUR diet is easier away from the temptations of the office. Here, people are eating delicious-looking sandwiches and allowing the scent of their leftover takeaway to waft in your direction.

It’s just not fair.

1:12pm: …Maybe I’ll treat myself, you’re allowed have some treats, right?

1:15pm: No. I must stay on course. The course to the new me, who is not tempted by such things.

But free food…
