Power Your Day By Eating in the Right Order
Eating in the right order may sound odd, but there is a good reason to eat food in the right order.
What does that mean? It means that our body reacts to different types of food throughout the day. For example, breakfast is a meal that helps our body get moving after it has rested and we have slept. Certain foods should be avoided in the morning because they cause our body to become sluggish. In this blog, we look at why eating foods in a certain order helps improve our lives, may cause weight loss, and helps provide a constant source of energy throughout the day.
They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. That is true if you eat good foods that help to boost your energy level. We are not talking about Coco Puffs, but rather foods like oatmeal. The whole grains of hot cereal help to provide good carbs that your body uses all day long as energy. Fruit, fruit juice, and protein such as eggs, also help your body to wake up and engage the world.
Snacks — The Mini Power Boost
Snacks such as dried figs, strawberries, or even peanut butter help to give your body a little boost that lasts until lunch. Sugary snacks provide a short-term power boost that then leads to an energy crash. Fruits, on the other hand, give a slow and steady supply of energy that lasts longer and does its job without either the burst of energy or the crash.
Lunch — It's the Big One
The afternoon meal should be the biggest meal of the day. It should be well balanced and free of heavy starches, sugars, and fried foods, which build up and cause an energy dump. Instead, consider foods that produce energy over the long haul. Lean meats, vegetables, and more fruit. Lunch is usually the biggest meal of the day because it is the longer period between noon and 6-7 pm when people eat their next meal — dinner.
Dinner - The Smallest Meal of the Day
Dinner is usually, or it should be the smallest meal of the day because you have less time to digest food before going to bed. If you eat at six p.m. and go to bed at 10 pm, then your body only has four hours to digest food before you lay down. Instead of steak and potato, try a tossed salad and scrambled eggs.
These kinds of decisions people make every day. However, when you begin to eat meals and foods in a specific order, your body reacts in a more positive way. You gain more energy, eat fewer foods, and your health improves because you avoid social diseases such as acid reflux when you eat foods at the correct time.
