Working on losing weight and the scale fails to move? You may calculate your eating pattern, as it really matters. Of course skipping meals, shopping on empty stomach, grabbing food on the go appears harmless, but actually sabotage the weight loss efforts.
Skipping meals are seen as a shortcut to weight losing, but this is a backfire. It does not help in losing weight. Starving results in eating larger portions and the faster we eat, we do not realize to stop. Skipping meals ends in overeating and results in diabetes and heart disease.
Even scarfing food on the go may appear a time saver, but it is just weight gain. You unknowingly overeat. Concentrating on the meals is a must so that you also know the food taking process, instead of eating mindlessly where we fail to recognize or track the food consumed.
The time of eating also has a vital role in weight loss. Even nighttime snacking is an act of overeating and not true hunger. It is associated with emotional or mindless eating. Thus, before laying hands on some late night snack, consider if you are hungry actually. In case, you are not sure, drink some non-sugary drink or water.
Restricting food intake for a period of 8 to 12 hours during the day prevents high diabetes, cholesterol and obesity. Furthermore, eating before two to three hours prior to going down to bed, leads to gastrointestinal issues such as heartburn.
