1. Eat More Frequently – 5 or 6 Meals over the Course of the Day
There’s been more and more evidence coming out in support of eating smaller, more frequent meals over the course of the day – and yet I still see the vast majority of people eating 2 or 3 huge meals per day and expecting it to work for them.
The truth is, it doesn’t. It’s actually much more efficient and healthy to eat 5 or 6 smaller meals – both for your body and your metabolism.
That’s because when you eat 2 or 3 meals, what you’re really doing is dumping a ton of nutrients into your body at the same time, causing your blood sugar to spike. Plus, you have to endure hours of hunger in-between meals that could lead to snacking.
Better to space out 5 or 6 smaller meals over the course of the day, so that you give your body a steady stream of nutrients it needs without the blood sugar spikes that will throw it off all day.
