From being way too busy at work to not having the proper food options around, we try to tell ourselves and people around us that we simply don't have a choice.

Pack yourself fuel by incorporating energy-filled, healthy foods and combine that with a brief but effective lunchtime exercise regimen. Here's how you can get started.
