Ever have a hectic day that left you no time to stop and eat or maybe you even got so busy you forgot about lunch all together? You may think skipping meals is ok once in awhile and even help shrink your waistline but it can actually backfire and create a cycle of restriction and overeating.
Remember that nourishing your body every 4-5 hours is super important especially in times of stress and working overtime. Focusing on eating even frequent, quick meals a day will help regulate your blood sugar and keep you burning through the fuel you put in your body. Try incorporating balanced meals of protein, healthy fat and carbohydrates and limiting sugar, this will keep you feeling fuller and more satisfied throughout the day and keep your metabolism humming.
Think: Lean meats, beans, whole grains, yogurt w/fruit, vegetables & hummus, nuts & avocado for good fat!
