IN SHAPE AT THE BAR

Frenetic working rhythms and office life do not help if you are trying to follow a correct diet. Many people only have a half hour lunch break, so a bar is the quickest solution for a frugal meal, which often turns out to be not very suitable if you are trying to keep your figure.

Frenetic working rhythms and office life do not help if you are trying to follow a correct diet. Many people only have a half hour lunch break, so a bar is the quickest solution for a frugal meal, which often turns out to be not very suitable if you are trying to keep your figure.

To begin with, you must remember to divide out all food in five meals to be eaten during the day, so a full, balanced breakfast is necessary. Your diet should include a mid-morning snack, so that you are not too hungry at lunchtime. Suitable snacks include yogurt, fruit with a little Grana or Parmesan cheese, a nutrition bar or a savoury snack.
A bar’s menu is usually limited and consists mainly of sandwiches or buns. Choose something balanced, such as a toasted sandwich, which contains carbohydrates (bread), proteins and fats (in the ham and cheese). 
Other sandwiches suitable for the office worker’s diet are sandwiches with lean cured meats (ham, speck, uncooked ham, bresaola, turkey slices) and vegetables (tomato or lettuce).
Alternatively, go for buns with grilled vegetables and low-fat cheese or sandwiches with tomato, mozzarella, oregano and basil or wraps with lean ham.
Many lunch bars offer dishes with bresaola, Grana cheese flakes and rocket salad, or mixed salads with boiled eggs and tuna. 
Very rich sandwiches with fat meats such as salami and mortadella, with mayonnaise-containing spreads, and tramezzino sandwiches, are not recommended, because they are very fatty and not filling. You can add a good fruit juice or seasonal fruit to your bun, so that a lunch at the bar can be a healthy lunch.
