Weight Loss On the Clock

The urge is calling for that midnight snack. So we raid the refrigerator telling ourselves that we're going to get the baby carrots and instead bypass them for those chocolate chip cookies that we baked for the children earlier. "It won't matter, their vegan, right?" We can eat vegan cookies, however, eating them at midnight will increase the risk of weight gain and be harder on digestion. Eating at night is what really effects us. Consuming  a small portion of vegan cookies at 12 noon, will be less likely to effect our weight because we have the rest of the day to burn them off.

It is best to eat our heavier meals earlier in the day and lighter meals later in the day. The purpose of food is to fuel our bodies instead of fulfilling our cravings. Eating our heavier meals when we are most active will give us the fuel that we need and increase our chances of weight loss.

It's Sunday and your husband wants you to fix that delicious lemon-pepper salmon with organic mac and cheese. Of course, you want some too, however, your on a journey to being curvaceous. How can we make this work? Eat this meal earlier in the day in one portion...Let us make sure that we do not overdo it. Then we have the rest of the day to clean, run errands, play with the children, and work out, to burn off that delicious meal we had earlier. Our last meal of the day can be a delicious plate salad with all of our favorite organic veggies.

By 7 p.m., we want to have had our food intake for the day. It seems farfetched if you haven't done it, however, I have been doing this for two months and have had little to no cravings to change back.. I have noticed a difference in my body since I changed my eating schedule. Postponing our meal intake until the next day at 7 p.m., gives our bodies an opportunity to break down the food that we ate. By the time that we turn in for the night, the digestion of the food we ate should be near completion. This will assist our bodies in getting the proper rest. Better rest also promotes weight loss. What if you get hungry? Drink a cup of hot tea with a touch of agave if needed. This will assist with the cravings and help to raise those feel good vibrations.

Scheduling all meals before 7 p.m. is attainable and healthier for the body. This is a natural weight loss plan and also a lifestyle change. Keeping this same system after we have reached our goals, will assist in keeping our digestive system running smoothly, causing our whole body to run more efficiently. There is no better weight loss than natural, healthy weight loss.
