To maintain good health, feed your body small nutrient dense healthy food every 3 hours. The classic 3 meals a day consisting of Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner was developed to coincide with the typical 8 hour work day. What we have discovered, is our bodies will start to starve for nutrients just at the 3 hour mark after our last meal. This starvation process can be detrimental to cellular growth and regeneration, AND it can result in over eating and gorging at your next meal.
Develop good eating habits. I like to start my eating schedule at 6 am. Then eat every 3 hours.
6 am: Breakfast.
9 am: Mid Morning Meal.
3 pm: Mid Afternoon Meal.
6 pm: Dinner.
9 pm: Late Night Snack.
Adjust the start of your first meal base upon eating your breakfast no later than an hour after you wake up.
