Eat more meals, just smaller ones
Who has ever been on a diet?
Who has ever been hangry due to being on a diet?
There is no need to torture yourself. There is a better way. What if I told you to eat more if you really want to lose weight and keep it off?
We have been wrongly conditioned to think that the word diet means starving yourself or severe withholding of pleasures to our palates. Our bodies are very superbly engineered to adapt to starvation. When we don’t eat, our bodies turn on backup systems for self preservation. Then when we do eat, our bodies are not sure when we will again and astutely stores energy as fat. By eating more frequently, small well balanced meals, we provide our bodies with the fuel that it needs and prevents the initiation of crisis mode.
Here is an infographic illustrating a possible example of how to fit in multiple meals over the course of the day. I know for me this was a major mind shift. But as you become more active, you will be hungry more frequently and it is important to fuel your body appropriately to maximize your hard work.
