I have been having problems with clients skipping meals and making excuses that either they don’t have time or they think that eating all the time will make them fat… Here’s what l would say to that… First, it does not take more than 5 minutes to make tea and toast bread, or 2 min to down a yoghurt with bread buns for breakfast!
This is a habit we tend to hang on to all our life,but you can get away with it in your 20′s .ln your 30′s and 40′s,all those decades of emergency dieting will have slowed your metabolism down permanently,making it tough to stay slim .
Never go without food for more than 3hours even if you would eat in bits.
I understand how one might feel that eating every 3 to 4 hours gives them the illusion that they are adding weight but that is exactly what your body and metabolism need. Not only does this keep your metabolism on point and running great, but it also helps keep your main meals, lunch and dinner, small.
Snaking throughout your day will prevent you from getting to the point where you are starving (or low blood sugar) which results in overeating (or storing all the calories you just inhaled) .
So next time you want to be stubborn or just plain lazy, think about the consequences and strive for consistency!
My last word is that “time” is not an excuse for not snaking or eating every 3 to 4 hours.
Have a lovely weekend ahead…….
