Perfect timing?

Now is the perfect time

Think before are you eating:  Why are you eating? Are you hungry, emotional feeling, depressed mood or boredom What are you eating? Balanced, healthy food or something different. Are you over-eating or under eating-drinking. When are you eating? Are you sure after late evening dinner 2 hours later need 2 slice of toast or ice lolly? I am not joking 😦

Are you drinking enough water, when you feel you are hungry, try drink a glass of water, our body couldn’t take difference between hungry or thirsty feeling. If you drink a glass of water and 20-25 minutes later you are feel still hungry, you are hungry. Use food diary, write down what are you eat, when and why? That’s helping you.

Snacks

Snack is a portion of food often smaller than a regular meal, generally eaten between meals. Snacks come in a variety of forms including packaged and processed foods and items made from fresh ingredients at home.

Traditionally, snacks were prepared from ingredients commonly available in the home. Often leftovers, cold cuts sandwiches, nuts, fruit, and the like were used as snacks. Beverages, such as coffee, are not generally considered snacks though they may be consumed along with snack foods. A beverage may be considered a snack if it possesses a substantive food item (e.g., strawberries, bananas, kiwis) that has been blended to create a smoothie.

Plain snacks like plain cereals, pasta and vegetables are also mildly popular, and the word snack has often been used to refer to a larger meal involving cooked or leftover items. Six-meal eating is a form of eating that interjects healthy snacks in between small meals, to stave off hunger and promote weight loss.

With the spread of convenience stores, packaged snack foods are now a significant business. Snack foods are typically designed to be portable, quick and satisfying. Processed snack foods are designed to be less perishable, more durable, and more portable than prepared foods. They often contain substantial amounts of sweeteners, preservatives, and appealing ingredients such as chocolate, peanuts, and specially-designed flavours. A snack eaten shortly before going to bed or during the night may be called a midnight snack.

Meals

A meal is an eating occasion that takes place at a specific time and includes specific, prepared food. Meals occur primarily at homes, restaurants, and cafeterias, but may occur anywhere. Regular meals occur on a daily basis, typically several times a day. Special meals are usually held in conjunction with such occasions as birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, and holidays. A meal is different from a snack in that meals are larger, more varied, and more filling than snacks.

Meals

Breakfast is usually eaten within an hour or two after a person wakes in the morning.

Lunch or dinner is eaten around mid-day, usually between 11 am and 2 pm. In some areas, the name will change between these two depending on the content of the meal.

Dinner or tea is a meal eaten in the evening. In some areas, the name will change between these two depending on the content of the meal.

Supper is often a meal eaten later in the evening, prior to retiring for bed.

The type of meal served or eaten at any given time varies by custom and location. Further, the names of meals are often interchangeable by custom as well, such as some will serve dinner as the main meal at midday, with supper as the late afternoon/early evening meal and others may call their midday meal lunch and their early evening meal supper. These can vary from region to region or even family to family.

Meal Plans

Five smaller meals can be better than three larger ones. Eating small healthy meals more often can help you eat sensibly throughout the day. I eat 3 meals, 2-3 snacks a day and I drink 6-8 glass of water a day.

Breakfast You need a good source of complex carbohydrates and sufficient protein, vitamins and minerals to get your day off to the best start. My breakfast is a Healthy Breakfast is high in protein to help build lean muscle mass, and calorie-controlled at 220 kcal. A nutritious and convenient choice for busy mornings.

Snack Healthy, portion controlled snacks play a valuable role in your daily diet and help you stop reaching for those unhealthy ‘treats’ that can pile on the pounds. I like Protein Bar this is high protein snack.

Lunch Take a Formula 1 Shake or Healthy Meal Bar if you’re controlling your weight. It’s calorie-controlled and high in protein which builds lean muscle mass. Plus it helps to balance your energy levels which can avoid unhealthy snacking during the day. Or if you’re looking to maintain your weight, enjoy a balanced and varied lunch.
