#1: HOARDING CALORIES!!!!
Eating a “SUPPER” amount of food at each sitting and eating randomly without paying attention to how many calories you are eating will definitely make you GAIN. “A minute on the lips, a lifetime on the hips”…we’ve all heard it, and it’s true. If you are hoarding tons of calories at one sitting and throughout the day, you’ll be working it off for what seems like forever. Your body can only burn off so many calories at rest throughout the day, and if you are sitting at a desk all day-it’s really not going to help. So what is the solution?
-Spread calories that match your RESTING METABOLIC RATE out throughout the day. If you eat smaller portions throughout the day, it will prevent you from feeling ravenously hungry every time you eat.
-Get the right amount of nutrition and the right amount of protein. Not getting enough nutrients and enough protein will make you overeat. Take a daily multivitamin with a high absorbency, and eat some protein at every meal.
-Eat more calories during the day while you are active, and eat lighter meals in the evening. Eating more @ night prevents morning hunger so you don’t eat breakfast. This leaves you starving by lunch and dinner which promotes OVEREATING.
-Eat breakfast! This starts your metabolism for the day…if you start is at lunch time, you’ve already wasted the opportunity to burn more calories in the morning.
-Eat @ least every 5 hours-eat 3 balanced meals every 5 hours @ about 450 calories each. If you are on weight loss, eat about 400 calories @ each meal and 2 snacks in between meals at about 100 calories each.
