When To Eat To Lose Weight

Ever wonder when is the best time to eat? I try to avoid eating after 7 pm and I NEVER skip breakfast.  There is a lot of info out there regarding scheduling your meals and being consistent with your routine.  Snacking between the three major meals is what gets most of us in trouble. I like to keep meal replacement bars with me when I’m away from home, just in case.  I can’t eat a big breakfast seven days a week, so I save that for the weekends. During the work week I prefer a protein drink and a piece of fruit (with a low glycemic index).  The key is ensuring that you eat the right number of meals at the right time to increase your metabolism and maintain a fat burning machine.

I found a cool article that shares the best times to eat to help you reach your weight loss goals:

When trying to slim down, we’re bombarded with what foods to eat and how much, but it’s not the only thing you need to think about. Timing is important, too. If you’ve had issues slimming down, check out the info below to see when to eat each meal and snack to optimize your weight-loss results.

Breakfast: Don’t skip breakfast, and be sure to eat your morning meal within an hour of waking to jump-start your metabolism, consuming 25 percent of your daily calories. Example: 7 a.m.

Morning snack: Eat two to three hours after breakfast. This will keep blood sugar levels stable to avoid the low-energy sluggishness that makes you reach for high-calorie treats. Snacking also prevents the famished feeling that makes you inhale way more calories at your next meal than you would if you weren’t plagued by hunger pains. Stick to 150 calories or less, about five percent of your daily calories. Example: 9:30 a.m.

Lunch: Your midday meal should be eaten two to three hours after your morning snack. Try to make lunch your largest meal of the day. Consuming more calories midday than at breakfast or dinner ensures you have enough time to burn all those calories, about 40 percent of your total daily calories. Example: 12:30 p.m.
