There’s a lot of chatter about gaining weight during our quarantine period, and especially for those who are working from home. 

This can be a REAL problem for many of us.  I’ve worked out of my home for several years, and one thing I’ve learned is I simply can’t have a food that is less than healthy for me around.  The food learns my name and calls to me!

However, with families also at home all day, it might be harder to make the healthiest choices in foods. Stress is rampant right now, and when we’re stressed, our bodies crave easy burning carbohydrates.  Carbohydrates fuel our feel-good neuro transmitters and hormones, and our bodies are smart!  The body wants sugar!  We want to feel satisfied!  Easy burning carbs are simple sugars, like breads, crackers, candy.

Some tips and things that work for me:

Do your best, enjoy your time at home as much as you can, and keep your vitality strong!
