Diets abound at the beginning of every year, timed with New Year’s resolutions, and the best of 2015 can be adapted to fit right in your lunch box.

It can be tough to maintain your diet at lunchtime, when many of your co-workers are headed out for fast food. But The Guardian pointed out that options exist to keep you on the best diet plan for 2015's most popular diets:

*If you’re trying the Atkins or low-carb diets, think lettuce leaf wraps, The Guardian said. You can fill them with all sorts of meats, garnish with dressing (try 2 Tbsp lime juice and 1 Tbsp soy sauce), and stay on your goal.

*For the popular caveman diets, The Guardian recommends a salade nicoise. "Boil an egg for 6 ½ minutes with some green beans, then run under the cold tap and pack with a smoked mackerel fillet, some little gem lettuce leaves, flaked almonds, and a tomato," the news site suggested.

*For all the sugar addicts who’ve decided to forgo their favorite sweets, The Guardian suggests packing items to make a great salad, like carrots, cabbage, quinoa, avocado, and hummus.

LiveStrong suggests packing a soup or salad to get you started, so those relatively light-weight calories take up space in your stomach and you don’t fill up on the high-calorie foods.

LiveStrong quoted research published in "The Journal of Nutrition" that suggested eating more fiber "will make you less likely to gain weight or body fat," so include whole grains in your packed lunch.

"Fiber also slows the movement of food through your digestive tract, helping you feel full for longer and eat less," LiveStrong said.

That healthy lunch balance should also include protein in the form of meat, fish, or eggs, said WebMD.

"The combination of protein and fiber from whole grains, beans, nuts, vegetables and/or fruit will give you the most satisfying and nutritious combination of foods that will keep you feeling full until dinner," Connie Diekman, RD, president of the American Dietetic Association, told WebMD.
