Is eating 3 meals a day better than 5-6 mini meals?
Hope you’re having a great weekend! It’s gorgeous outside, so get out and ride your bike, go for a walk, grab a seat outside at your favorite restaurant … you get the idea!! Enjoy
And speaking of restaurant eating …
True or false – eating the traditional 3 meals a day works just as well for keeping up your energy and metabolism as eating 5-6 small meals a day? ANSWER …….. TRUE!!
So why have you heard ME and other experts say to eat 5-6 small meals? Well, it’s because damn few of y’all even eat the traditional 3 meals – breakfast, lunch and dinner – regularly enough to do you nutritional good! You know who you are – I’ve had to just about smack some of you around just to get you to start eating breakfast!
I hope this finds you all well and healthy. Man it's a beautiful day here in Dallas. Blue sky, cool breeze, cool nights ... can't be beat!
Ok, this week lets talk about snacking. Y'all have all heard me say to "graze" during the day. Grazing during the day keeps your gas tank full, giving you energy for activity. It keeps your metabolism fired up, helping you burn fat. And, snacking during the day helps keep your hunger in check. That way you wont attack the fridge when you get home or "over order" if you meet out for dinner.
Every critter on the planet, from bugs to bears, eats a little then moves a little. They eat a little more and move a little more. We humans are the only creatures on the planet that eats a freaking ton more than we need and moves very little. Hence the health issues facing our kids as well as our friends and family.
