Sugar free barista Posted January 8, 2018 Share Posted January 8, 2018 So, I'm on Day 7. The first week at work I got through with 100% fruit juice, fruit pouches or dried fruit, fruit/nut bars on breaks, or when my energy was lagging and I needed a quick boost of energy. I work in a physically and emotionally demanding job where I'm on my feet 8 hours, can not eat or drink on the floor, am not in charge of when I take my breaks. ( I get 2 10 min and 1 30 min break during an 8 hour shift). I always eat breakfast before work however I walk to work so I am usually needing more fuel before my first 10 min break. This week I think I should eat something before I go on the floor, as well as at my 10 min break. Since dried fruit/fruit/fruit juice is not looked upon favorably, would something like Epic bars be more in line with the program? I also have rxbars and while a whole bar would be too many calories for a snack, perhaps half a bar before work and half a bar on my first 10 would be a good strategy. Anyone else in this kind of situation with work? As a side note some of the people I work with are either more then or close to 20 years younger then me, some of them are closer to my daughter's age then my own. I am the only full time person in my position at my job, and the only full time person my age at my job. It is a fact that my job is made for younger people, but since I am youthful, I can do it. I say that to underline how physically demanding the job is. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
