The Benefits of Eating Smaller, More Frequent Meals April 3, 2019

The Benefits of Eating Smaller, More Frequent Meals, Honolulu, Hawaii

Eating a healthy diet is an essential part of getting into better shape. Although eating breakfast, lunch, and dinner is traditional, many people find eating more frequently beneficial to their weight loss goals. Here is a guide on how meal timing affects your metabolism and why smaller, periodic meals can help with dieting.

How Does Meal Timing Affect Metabolism?

lunchMetabolism refers to the process in which your body converts calories into energy. The slower your metabolism, the more calories get converted into fat rather than energy. A number of factors can affect your metabolic rate, such as your age, gender, height, muscle mass, and genetics.

The reasoning behind the three-hour diet is that eating every three hours keeps the body in an optimal state: blood sugar levels stay constant while you have fewer hunger pangs. Reducing the wait time between meals also ensures you refuel when you start to get hungry, which helps with self-control when it comes to portioning and resisting cravings. 

What Are the Recommended Meal Times & Portions?

Spreading your meals out every three hours includes breakfast, lunch, dinner, and two separate snack meals. Eat breakfast within an hour after you get up and your last meal three hours before you go to sleep. Try to consume the heaviest foods, like carbohydrates, earlier in the day to ensure they’re consumed as energy rather than saved as fat for later usage. You’ll also have an easier time sleeping when you eat less in the evening.
