When I consult with new clients that are carrying excess weight you would think that when I check there food diary it would be full of unhealthy and frequent bad meals. I find the opposite to be true in fact most overweight and even slightly overweight clients hardly eat at all which is puzzling to the average person, but let me explain why.
What most people think is that the less you eat the less weight you put on. I used to think this way too but you've got to look at the evidence that is in front of you and that is what you are currently doing isn't working. When I first tell clients you simply are not eating enough they don’t believe me and are reluctant to try my way based on a basic principle and way of thinking the more you eat the more you weigh.
What I find very common is people generally starving themselves during the day and having their biggest meal at night time right before they are going to bed. Most of these meals are high in carbohydrates too. When you change your perspective and start looking at food as fuel you may see why this is not the best thing to do. Would you drive your car without fuel? I bet most would fill their car before they fill there tummies. Start eating to fuel your body and provide it with the nutrition it needs to function properly and repair itself rather than eating when you are hungry.
So why is eating 4-6 small meals per day more beneficial for you then eating just one? Well the more regularly you eat the faster your metabolism will become and guess what happens when your metabolism speeds up? You got it ... You will start to lose weight.Our bodies are amazing things which adapt very quickly to any changes of environment to ensure survival. Our bodies are constantly working to ensure that we survive. So when you only eat one meal per day regularly your body will adapt to this and likely store a lot more fat due not being sure when it will receive nutrients again. When you eat regular meals your body is more likely to burn more fat and use the food as energy rather than just storing it. That’s why for example if you are not a breakfast eater the days you do eat breakfast you feel much hungrier than the days you don’t. That’s your metabolism firing up.
Now when I say 4-6 meals I don’t mean huge portion sizes. You will find when your meals are complete meals that are nutritiously dense you will eat smaller portions naturally. Start by simply adding a few snacks in between meals such as nuts and fruit to get you used to regularly eating. Ensure you always eat breakfast and your dinner should be one of the smaller meals of the day.
