    It is the eating lunch out that does it. When I'm working I usually bring my lunch while a lot of the guys
    go out and eat fast food and I've personally ate more when eating out than at home due to meal sizes.
    Most guys don't want to eat a happy meal when with other guys but as we get older and are not working a very physically demanding job that burns calories like mad we no longer need a double whopper and large fries and drink to fill our tank. A sandwich and small bag of chips or crackers is probably half the calories of a "meal" that costs about $7 or so.
    I've found that losing weight is often attached to getting good sleep and not having a lot of stress as you get older you don't realize that you snack a lot more and sleep less and feeling tired in the day you pump yourself with more carbs to boost your energy.

    Yeah I would say it's the lunch. My company loves to buy pizza in the summer so I have to take up running to keep from getting overweight. There's no way out of it, either, because it's usually for someone's birthday or during a company meeting when we all have to participate. Otherwise you're just sitting there watching everyone else eat and it's kind of awkward...

    Homemade dinners tend to have alot less preservatives than take out food! That is the difference, I'm sure! I've noticed that even as a family of 5, we're actually eating only 1 big meal a day and keeping alot more active. Haven't stepped on the scale in a while, though.

    I've actually dropped a few as well...probably because a lot of restaurants are closed, and people are eating at home more over the past few weeks.

    Years ago I worked in a job where they wanted us to stay alert and enthusiastic the whole shift, while sitting at a desk. They encouraged drinking coffee, sodas and eating candy and chocolate. They would even give it to us if they thought we needed it. There were many days when I would eat two candy bars in a day and continuously drink Dr Pepper and coffee.

    When I left that job I dropped 15 pounds. The only change was not having junk at a desk all day.

    Here's what worked for me:

    -Limit fast food to twice a month.
    -Drink up to two cups of coffee and/or two cups of decaffeinated tea.
    -Do not drink pop and alcohol.
    -Drink plenty of water.
    -Exercise with things like push ups, thirty minute walks, and weight training.

    By doing this, I've lost 15 lbs since the beginning of March. Basically exercise and proper diet. Results may vary depending on the person.

    People often eat more at work. There’s a greater degree of snacking, unhealthy food brought into the office, and a higher instance of eating out.

    I eat twice per day. The body adapts over time. I’ve been home for years. I use a combination of moderation and exchanges (a donut today not every day!) to avoid gaining weight.
