Timing is Everything

***Every 4 to 6 hours is the key***

Far too often the quick answer to lose weight is to decrease frequency of eating. Yes, skipping some meals can have some beneficial effects but the bad outweighs the good 9 times out of 10.

The good

  • Light exercising on an empty stomach may increase fat burn by up to 20%.

The bad

  • Energy levels will be low and likely will lead to decreased productivity.

  • Skipping meals and waiting over 4-6 hours to eat (aside from sleep) typically leads to overeating.

  • Skipping breakfast increases your risk of developing type 2 diabetes by up to 20%

  • Frequently skipping lunch or dinner leads to lower basil metabolic rate

  • An increase in blood pressure, insulin, triglycerides, and LDL-cholesterol have been tied to individuals who frequently skip meals

How do you balance your intake and not eat too much?

Eat small frequent meals. Portion is the most important piece.
