#8: Are you eating regularly throughout your day to reduce cravings?

#8: Are you eating regularly throughout your day to reduce cravings?

Mother still knows best and her age-old advice of eating three meals per day still rings true. Eating the right foods for your unique constitution (see full article and previous tips) regularly throughout the day stabilizes blood sugar levels and is one of the best things you can do to minimize cravings.   

But what is “regular”? Is it just three meals a day? Does it include snacks? Many of our clients find that by eating smaller quantities of food, more frequently throughout their days, they are able to abolish cravings, especially when optimizing their carbohydrate-to-protein threshold along with this. 

Discovering the optimal sequencing and frequency for your unique constitution can take some experimenting. But a great place to begin is with breakfast, a mid-morning protein snack, lunch, mid-afternoon protein snack and dinner. Others begin here and after a bit more refining discover their perfect blood sugar balance occurs with smaller main meals along with micro snacks every 1 ½ hours.

Of course, we cannot mention blood sugar regulation without delving into its middle name – sugar.
