How much should I eat? How many times should I eat? Do I just need to eat protein and cut out all of my carbohydrates? When it comes to staying lean, trim and in great shape, try eating something every three hours in order to keep the blood sugars stable and to practice not gorging yourself. When you can eat enough food that will kill the hunger, then you are ready to stop eating. The body is meant to keep moving, so you should eat only the amount that you need to keep going; that is why dietitians and nutrition professors want us to eat smaller types of meals that are balanced in fats, proteins and carbohydrates. When you practice this way of eating for a few weeks, your body will adapt to it. The great thing is that your stomach will shrink and when you want to gorge on that great tasting food you will not want to eat all of it. That is the bonus part and secret to staying trim. Being able to keep the food burning in your stomach, giving the body smaller quantities to digest, which mean you will become a more efficient calorie burning fat reduction machine. Give it a try, eat every three hours a small meal and do this for a few weeks. You will see a drastic difference in your waist line, your appetite and you will feel satiated. For more guidance on a strict nutrition plan, I always recommend going to a dietitian, especially if you have medical needs such as anemia, bone density problems and diabetes.
