The hardest thing for me to remember is to eat more frequently. I often skip breakfast and sometimes even lunch. My goal is to eat six times a day.
1.) Breakfast — most important meal of the day. Re-kindles the fire from 8 hours of digesting.
2). Morning snack — just a coupe hundred calories to maintain a high metabolism. (When you stop eating for a few hours, your body goes into starvation mode and burns less energy.)
3.) Lunch: A lite lunch is good for maintaining energy levels and again stoking the body’s furnace. Too big of lunch will make you sleepy and decrease your brain’s activity for a couple of hours.
4.) Midafternoon Snack: Fruit like apples, oranges, mangoes, kiwis will help with digestion and the fructose will give you a slight sugar buzz.
5.) Supper: This should be your second biggest meal behind breakfast. Proteins like meat, chicken, fish and beans .
6.) Evening snack: a fudge-cycle, ice cream bar or something sweet will help reduce your hunger. Drinking at least 64 ounces of water a day also will help with digestion.
