Timing Your Meals for Better Health
Achieving a healthy weight is a process, and it doesn't happen overnight. It takes diligence and a willingness to make changes. There are no quick fixes. With that said, there are some strategies you can apply that can make a big difference. Even small tweaks to your daily food intake can yield results, and some of them are super simple!
1) Start Your Day Right
Dieters often skip breakfast, but this isn't a good idea, or an effective way to lose weight and keep it off. Therefore, breakfast is important, but what you eat for breakfast is just as important. Limit or skip sugar and load up on protein. You'll have more energy for your day and feel fuller longer.
2) Make Lunch Your Biggest Meal
Most people save the majority of their calories for dinner, but there is some evidence to suggest that eating your bigger meal before 3 pm can help you lose weight faster. Be sure your lunch choices are healthy, but don't skip lunch or skimp on it!
3) Low Fat, High-Fiber Dinners
Getting adequate sleep at night is vital to your overall health, and can aid in weight loss, too. One way to help ensure that you get a good amount of sleep at night is to eat a dinner high in fiber and low in fats and sugars. There are plenty of veggie choices that are rich in nutrients and fiber, such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts, peas and artichokes. It's also good to stay away from before bed snacking. This can prevent you from falling asleep.
Balance is the key here, so remember to eat protein in the morning, your bigger meal in the afternoon and keep dinner light and full of fiber. You'll have an easier time losing weight, and you'll feel better, too. For help in getting fit and achieving your weight loss goals, contact Metabolic Research Center.
