Help yourself by eating at scheduled times

18 October, 2011

To be active and healthy, it is very important to schedule your meals throughout the day, as shown in the menu that we send you each week.

Eat three meals and one or more snacks per day, depending on your case, without skipping anything and stick to the schedule as much as possible. Make sure you do not spend more than five hours without eating to avoid energy slumps.

Here’s a possible schedule:

  • 7:00 am Breakfast: The most important meal of the day, because after about 12 hours of fasting, it will give your body and your brain the nutrients necessary to function.
  • 10:00 am Snack: This will prevent a drop in blood sugar (glycemia), symptoms of fatigue and irritability.
  • 12:00 pm Lunch at work: Enjoy a well balanced meal, prepared in advance.
  • 3:30 pm Snack: To help you “hold on” until dinner.
  • 7:00 pm Family Dinner: Enjoy a well balanced meal. Wait a few hours before going to bed for an effective (more restful) sleep.

Thanks for the tips. Routine has its advantage and as the quote said “if you fail to plan, you plan to fail”.

This post give an example of schedule there. But, to anyone outta there, out of curiosity and to extend these tips, here is some questions…

– Even thought I understand the convenience dimension of eating that way, would it be better to eat multiple equivalent meals through the day rather than 3 meals and some snacks?
– What about evening snacks?
– What about eating right before sleeping?

I am mostly interested in the rational and biological side of the answer, else I think it need an explanation. For example there is people that say do not eat late… because that will encourage you to eat more and you will take weight, but the real tip to remember should be to not overeat during your day. However, if our digestion is not optimal during sleep and that could influence our sleep quality, then that is something interesting to consider. I am sure there is pro and con to eat before sleeping.
