How often should you eat?

Breakfast is key

I’m sure you’ve heard that breakfast is the most important meal of day, and in any case this is true! You should be eating breakfast within an hour after you wake up to stabilize blood sugar levels, and make sure to drink some water as well - you’ll stay full & satisfied until your pre-lunch snack.

Listen to your body

During your regular daily tasks, aim to eat every 2-3 hours. It is super important to fuel your body when you feel hunger coming on, because that’s the time when we’re most likely to diverge from healthy meal choices. Eat slowly and make sure your portions are appropriate. The longer you wait to eat, the more your body craves processed foods and you’re more likely to overeat.

 

Try to be consistent

Aim to have breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the same time each day - routine can really help establish positive eating habits and keep blood sugar consistent, meaning you’ll have more stable energy levels and be more productive since time management is a big component of achieving goals!

 

Small snacks

Fit in a light snack sometime between breakfast/lunch and lunch/dinner to avoid overeating at mealtime and to keep your digestive system functioning at its best. This snack should be protein-oriented and healthy! Even if you don’t feel particularly hungry between meals, having a snack ensures that your body is processing food efficiently since it’s never left to guess when the next meal is coming - if you deprive yourself of food, even for a few hours, the body slows down digestion and stores away as much as it can of that food just in case you decide to not eat again!
