Don't Skip Meals

Especially don't skip Breakfast!  I'm sure you have heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  IT IS!!!!  Eat a big healthy breakfast as early as possible.  It will give you more energy, lead you to make healthier choices during the day, and keep you feeling full so you eat less later on.

Eat frequently throughout the day.  Eat every 2-3 hours.  I aim for at least 5x.  That means 3 meals and 2 snacks.  This helps give you steady energy, avoids hunger pangs and keeps our blood sugar level stable so we don't crash and become tired and also keeps us happy.

Skipping meals does not mean you will lose calories.  It will only trigger cravings and lead to you over indulging in something later on.  Skipping meals only puts our body in starvation mode leading it to think it is never going to get fed again.  Be careful with this because it will only cause your body to hang on to food the next time it is fed and store it away.  Skipping meals also forces your body to slow down your metabolism which means slow weight loss.  Who would have thought you need to eat and eat a lot to lose weight?!?  Eat all the right healthy foods and trust the process!
