If you're not eating - what do you do on your lunch break?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created December 24, 2012 at 6:48 PM

For those of you who fast, intermittent fast, do feeding windows, etc - what do you do on your lunch break at work if you're not eating? I'm looking both for ideas, and just to hear what other people do in general.

I often eat something very small, or nothing at all for lunch at work. I'm required to take an hour lunch, however, and even if I eat lunch, it really doesn't take more than 10 minutes. Sometimes I have errands to run that I can do on my lunch hour, but that isn't all the time.

I work in close contact with patients, so I can't work out because I'd get dirty or sweaty. I try to read in the back, but if I am just sitting there I inevitably get pulled into answering the phone or something, even though I'm off the clock.

That, also, takes like 5mins, Roth. Though I do see how after I do that, the rest of the minutes may not matter...

If only there were cute girls passing by. I used to work construction, so I was inevitably the cute girl they were staring at, or if I was wearing all my usual clothing, the short person they apologized to when they realized I had ovaries. :)

I wish I could do that! I'm not good at napping, though, and sleeping in public skeeves me out.

That sounds nice! I work in an Atlanta suburb, so if I want to take a walk I can walk circles around the parking lot. :)

I have to take an hour too. I've been using it for my workout times. But in order to do so I moved my lunch time to 10:30 (luckily my schedule is flexible) -- too many people at the gym during normal lunch. Plus I get back just in time for everyone else leaving forlunch, and I can actually get some work done! I usually make a protein shake post-workout and just drink that on the way back to the office.

I like to go for walks outside. It's a good way to get sunshine (need that vitamin D!) and to get away from coworkers that somehow find more work for you.

I had a friend in college that put a couch in the back of his pick-up and took a nap at lunchtime.

I always walk if i'm skipping lunch. I work in downtown LA, so there are plenty of good hour long walks, and it's a nice break from all the sitting. If i eat lunch, i like to read afterwards and do more sitting (oy, too much sitting!).

I am required to take a half hour break, so I take it at the end of my shift. My boss is an intermittent paleo eater, so he lets me bail early, provided my timecard is marked lunch taken.

Read, nap, socialize with my coworkers. Since I work construction, I like to sit outside & whistle at the cute girls passing by.

Take up knitting. Or crochet. It's fun. Also, listen to music/podcasts/audiobooks. Or just read a book. Go for a walk. Take a shorter lunchbreak.
