My 6 key steps will help you on your way on learning how to maintain a healthy lifestyle. For this key, what you need to do is to eat something every 3 hours.
Most people eat 2-3 big meals per day. They can go six, seven, sometimes, eight hours without food. When you don’t eat for a while your blood sugar really drops. And then when you do eat your blood sugar spikes. When your blood sugar spikes that causes there to be excess insulin in your blood. When there is excess insulin in your blood your body stores fat more easily.
The benefits of feeding your Body every 3 hours include:
- Fat Loss. You’ll get hungry if you go without food for more than 3 hours. And this can make you overeat at the next meal, preventing fat loss.
- Less Hunger. Smaller meals decrease your stomach size over time. Your stomach will feel full sooner. You’ll also stabilize blood sugar & insulin.
- More Energy. Eating 3 large meals of 1000kcal will make you sleepy & lethargic. Smaller meals: more energy, better focus, no set stomach.
- Less Cheating. You know you’ll have a healthy meal within 3 hours. Psychologically this makes it easier to keep your diet healthy.
So remember, you should eat 6 small meals a day. Just don’t tell my Mum I’m telling you this, because like many of you, the advice we were given as children, was to eat our 3 square meals, and not to snack in between. Well it was wrong. When you eat every few hours, you maintain a good blood sugar level which will give you energy throughout the day; you will experience less hunger pangs and cravings, and food is more efficiently absorbed and processed by your body.
By feeding your body frequently throughout the day you will transform your body, look better, feel better, and improve your health. Not a bad recipe.
You should eat something every 2 1/2 to 3 hours.
