Becoming fit and staying fit can be quite challenging especially if you don’t know the little tips and tricks that people in shape follow. The time of day at which you have your largest meal can be critical in your try to lose weight according to Ricki Friedman, a health coach. A great offence you might be doing to yourself is eating light snacks all day then finishing the night with a huge meal.
The ideal time to savor the biggest dish of the day should lie between 1 pm and 5 pm. This way, you will be able to burn those calories afterwards by exercising, or walking home from work or school.
Saving the most nutritious dish for dinner means that you will probably sleep after it or just relax in front of the television, giving you no chance to get rid of the extra calories and may be making you end up with a sleepless night.
Individuals who enjoy eating at night usually do it as an emotional refuge from being lonely or to comfort themselves from the trouble of the day.
This problem can be solved by eating a light dinner followed by a nighttime walk as a healthy mean of comfort to get you through the night and sleep with ease. Here are some options for a light dinner (try not to exceed 400 calories for this meal):
1. Lentil or vegetable soup.
2. Half a sweet potato with grilled vegetables and a slice of salmon.
3. Grilled vegatables with half of your favorite burger.
You need not to deprive yourself of the food you love, just choose the right timing when digestion can be supported with movement. If you crave a nighttime pizza, then stick to one or two slice tops; followed of course by at least 20 minutes of nighttime walk.
