We’re always counting calories, discussing dietary plans, nutrition, exercise regiments, etc. But as I was sitting in my room thinking that I really blew it, I realized that I don’t hear much conversation about how often we are to eat or the best time to eat in the mornings for our body’s metabolism to work effectively.
My dilemma: Now remember, I’ve been trying to eat early and get my day started off right. So I thought, or at least that’s my goal and still is. But, I ate late today. Breakfast was around 10:00 am – 10:30 am. That’s more like brunch than breakfast. Plus it was a rather larger meal than I expected. So when would be the ideal time for me to eat lunch? Many of us would say, “When you’re hungry. Duh” Really? I might not get hungry until dinner time. Is that healthy? Will my body still metabolize at a good rate for me to stay on course towards my goal? Or am I thinking too much?
Like I said, I tried to do smaller portions, 1 egg instead of my normal 2 and so forth; but, it was a lot. I was raised to not waste food. So I ate it. All of it. Ugh! Don’t get me wrong, I feel great! But this thing is in my head. Funny thing, my Mom has this thing down pat. I guess I need to hang around her more often. 🙂 But at any rate I want to hear what you think. So …
