What we want to do is to eat something every 3 – 4 hours. Most people eat 2-3 big meals per day. They go six, seven, sometimes, eight hours without food. When you don’t eat for a while your blood sugar really drops. And then when you eat after six, seven hours your blood sugar spikes. When your blood sugar spikes that causes there to be excess insulin in your blood. When there is excess insulin in your blood your body stores fat more easily.
This is also why it’s very important to eat breakfast and to make it a priority. Because by the time you wake up, your blood sugar is low. If you wait until lunch time it’s even lower!
Your metabolism is like a locomotive train, if you rarely feed it, it will slow down. Feed it every few hours and it has no choice but to speed up!
Eat 4-6 portion-controlled, balanced meals every 3-4 hours throughout the day.
