11 Foods To Stop Eating During Lunch Hours

2. Buffet Meals

Buffets can be iffy because you don’t know how long the food has been sitting there, and how many people have handled it before you arrived.

But a bigger issue is that the prolonged heating of these foods degrades the nutrients inside and begins to break down the fiber, too.

It’s almost as though the food has been partially pre-digested, and because your stomach doesn’t need to work very hard to extract glucose from it, your blood sugar will spike. That primes you for a crash shortly after getting back to work.
