Whenever people tell me they want to lose body fat, reduce weight, decrease stress, anxiety or blood pressure, sleep better and improve overall hormonal balance, the first thing that comes to my mind is…are they eating often enough?
People typically eat enough, but these days it seems that all of the calories are packed in one or two meals.
Many are even scared to eat because they fear even more weight gain.
Those who tend to lose weight, body fat and balance their hormones seem to understand that you need to EAT TO LOSE.
Three Keys to Success:
- Eat every 2-4 hours; based upon scientific evidence! Never go hungry or full
- Plan and prepare
- Balance all of your meals with protein and fat
Grazing every 2-4 hours without going hungry or full is the key to success. There is a great amount of scientific literature to back up this claim.
