A Balanced and Well-Timed Diet Is Key to Losing Weight
11 January 2021
While you are under a weight reducing diet, there are certain times of the day that are best for eating. The time of the day when you eat is not tied to the clock but rather to your style of living. Everyone’s energy demand is different depending on when and how they are active. This means that for example it is not important that you always eat breakfast at exactly 7AM, but you should always eat breakfast in the morning.
The first time to eat during the day is in the morning. This is especially true if your workout routine is in the morning as well. About 30 minutes before you work out is the best time to eat a good breakfast. It is important to eat a good breakfast, one that stops the urges of eating for several hours. The breakfast you eat should be balanced, because when you wake up all the nutrients in the blood are already depleted.
After working out is another good moment to eat. This is so because after you eat your metabolism is still accelerated, which makes it easier for your body to use the energy that comes with your food. This makes it less likely for your food to get deposited as fat in your body.
This is the same reason why it is recommended to eat a light dinner. Since while you sleep your body burns less calories, if you have a heavy dinner all the extra energy will get deposited as fat. A good advice is to eat your dinner at least three hours before going to sleep and to eat a light dinner. In that way you will give your body time to burn some calories while awake.
