Tip #20: Eat every 4-5 hours

19 Oct

A large pizza has around 2000 calories. Imagine that you eat that pizza in one day- you should eat 2 slices for breakfast, 2 for lunch and 2 for dinner. Then you should have 1 slice for a morning snack, and another for an afternoon snack. Of course, eating pizza for every meal isn’t healthy but it illustrates how you should space out your caloric intake throughout the day. Many people make the mistake of skipping breakfast, having a small lunch, and then overeating at dinner. This causes your metabolism to be very slow during the day, and then have to work to catch up when you overload your body with calories at dinner. Try to eat close to the same amount of calories at each meal, with smaller snacks in between. This keeps your metabolism working steadily throughout the day and helps prevent the feeling that your crashing a few hours after a meal. Make sure that you are eating in the morning- within an hour of waking up- to kick start your metabolism, then keep it up throughout the day!
