Staying Healthy By Eating On A Schedule

One of the most difficult things when it comes to eating healthy is knowing exactly how much you should eat. Many people end up eating far too much because of the advice that they should "eat throughout the day," or else they eat too little, thinking this is healthy. If you want to combat this, one of the best things you can do is put yourself on an eating schedule, with regimented meals and times of day.

It actually is true that you should eat small meals all throughout the day, even though this can seem a bit counterintuitive. As you have surely heard people say before, the most important meal of the day is breakfast. With a good breakfast, you are able to get your metabolism working immediately, which is also the reason why you want to eat throughout the day – for your metabolism.

For breakfast, you do not need a big meal so much as you need something that will get you and your metabolism going. But remember: You will not be eating again for another few hours, so make sure you eat enough to hold you over until your mid-morning snack.

Make sure your mid-morning snack falls right in between breakfast and lunch; it should, of course, be something light and healthy. You can take lunch as an opportunity to provide yourself with a satisfying and filling meal; but although it is tempting to eat a lot, remember that you will be eating again in just a few hours!

Later in the afternoon you shoul have another light, healthy snack – somewhere right in between lunch and dinner. When you get home from work or wrap up your day, you can eat another full meal; but again, not too much, as you may eat one more light snack a few hours later!

When you start to get yourself on an eating schedule – where you are eating five to six small meals a day, at set times of day – you will find that your body is healthier and your metabolism is working more efficiently. As odd as it might seem, this "eating more often to stay slim and healthy" truly does work!″>” width=468 height=60 border=0>
