Good fats are raw, unheated, non hydrogenated plant fat as found in raw nuts and seeds, avocados, coconut and extra virgin olive oil and other unheated plant oils (oils should be used in small amounts because of concentration).

Before leaving from home pack some healthy snacks with you. Fruits should also be included in it. If you have healthy food and fruits handy, you would firstly not need to starve and avoid unhealthy food. If you have been starving since long it is sure that you will stop at any food joint and eat whatever you get. If you traveling by flight and have had these snacks and fruits already, you can stop yourself from consuming high on calories cookies and snacks served in flights. Besides snacks another important thing is water. Drink plenty of water while traveling. Again when you are hungry do not drink water. Eat some of your healthy snacks and then drink water. While traveling in a flight you cannot carry liquid, so get empty bottle and get it filled whenever needed.
When things get hectic, slow down! This may sound strange, but perhaps you are overdoing everything. You are tired, run down, and yet you think you can’t get anything accomplished. It can help sometimes if you take time to be where you are. Take a few minutes to reflect on the service that you have been hired to provide to your organization. Focus on serving people better in your organization, whether it is clients, coworkers, employees, or the community. If you stay focused on your purpose, you will not get so overwhelmed with changes going on around you. Stay open to discovering new ways to help others.
When you go to the store, read the labels. Does your family really need all that sugar, salt and fat? Do you want to serve something that looks like it came out of a local chemicals plant, not off a farmer’s field? You don’t need to buy organic and you’ll often find they’ve simply added “organic” fat and sugar. Select the brands with the lowest sugar, fat and additives. If they replace a healthy slow seller with a more toxic brand, complain to your store manager. The Whole Foods stores brought back sugar-free puffed cereals after customers complained.
