News flash – you’re eating wrong. Totally wrong. How does that make you feel? I hope it fires you up because most people don’t like to be wrong.
Here’s how to be right.
1. Don’t wait until you are hungry to eat. By then your body is starving for fuel and sliding into the “starvation mode”. Meaning the next thing that you do eat your body will store and not burn through.
2. Three square meals a day? WHAT! You should be eating 5-6 times a day. Yup. This is how it goes; breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner, snack. Eat more frequent, smaller meals to keep your metabolism cranking and calories burning.
3. Eat protein with every meal. Your body digests protein differently than it does fats or carbohydrates. It also takes longer to digest. Proteins will keep you fuller longer, keep your blood sugar stable, and proteins rarely set up camp on your hips and thighs like excess sugars do!
If you do one thing for your health this week do this- EAT MORE OFTEN! Trust me and try it and then share with me how it feels. I’d write more but I need a protein shake. I’m going catabolic. (more on that word next week)
