Focus on When You Eat

change 6b

Focus on when you eat. Six small protein-rich meals spaced throughout the day will help to keep your metabolism in high gear and your energy level high. Meals should be spaced 2 ½ to 3 hours apart and have a start and stop time (about 20 minutes). Avoid grazing between scheduled meals/snacks. If you have the desire to eat between meals, you probably need something other than food.

Focus on What You Eat

change 5

Focus on what you eat. Small portions of lean protein sources (meat, fish, poultry, dairy, protein supplements), complemented with veggies, fruit and whole grains. Preparing foods at home puts you in control of what you eat. If you choose foods with the least processing, you’ll avoid added fat, salt, sugar, preservatives and additives that are prevalent in processed foods. Preparing fresh wholesome foods may be a big change, but one that is worth the extra effort. You may want to work on one meal/snack at a time and then expand until you’ve upgraded your entire day.
