The office diet is a useful diet for those who have little time to spend at home and in the kitchen, and spend a lot of time sitting at their desk instead. It is a very simple and versatile meal plan , complete with a shopping list to make a healthy diet even if you have little time to prepare the dishes at home.
And above all, it also provides for small changes in the routine to keep the level of activity high and thus stimulate the metabolism despite the hours spent sitting at the desk.
Let’s get straight to the point starting from the shopping list.
THE OFFICE DIET: SHOPPING LIST
