Eat Six Times a Day

“The longer you wait between meals, the hungrier you get, and then you’re more likely to overeat.” – webMed

After about 3 hours without food, your blood sugar level begins to fall, and after 4 hours, your body has already digested whatever you sent down earlier, and once you’ve crossed the 5-hour mark, your blood sugar level begins to plummet, and you feel that you need to eat whatever you can have to refuel. That’s why having breakfast is so important because after 8 hours of sleep, you need energy to get moving.

My naturopath has recommended that I aim for 6 meals a day, that’s one small meal each couple of hours. A meal, she said, can be just a carrot or an apple. No big meals are recommended because the stomach lining would stretch and start collecting unhealthy fats. I definitely started having small meals and felt that my body has become very strong and vital within one month.
