Structure Gives You Freedom
It is easy to get lost in unstructured habits, a structured daily routine can actually set you free. Instead of constantly feeling hungry and snacking, drinking and always thinking about food, eating at regular times can mean you are more relaxed about food and can also stabilise your blood sugar levels.
For example you should aim to eat and snack at regular intervals, and finish your evening meal by early evening so that you are not putting a strain on your digestion system overnight.
Try eating and snacking at regular windows of time, for example:
0700 – 0830 Breakfast
1000 – 1100 Optional Morning Snack
1200 – 1330 Lunch
1400 – 1600 Optional Afternoon Snack
1700 – 1930 Dinner
Eating at regular times will allow you to enjoy your food and control your food instead of your food controlling your day. You will know when you are eating next and can get on with your day.
You should also aim to drink a minimum of 2 litres gradually spread throughout your day.
