Though there is no such thing that exists, don’t we all crave a so-called ‘perfect figure’? Absolutely, yes. We go to the gym, work out and change our diet to achieve the goal of having a perfectly-toned body. But the results still seem to be far away.
Wonder why? To maximise the results of any workout and diet regimen, it’s also important to keep track of the timing of our diet. Some of the most popular diet advice in recent years has revolved around the idea that timing your meals correctly can make a significant difference in the amount of weight you can lose.
Here are a few ways in which having a meal at the right time can help your body-
Improved Metabolism: Metabolism is the pace at which your body burns calories. According to Harvard Medical School scientists, our bodies are hardwired to perceive a lack of food as starving, and as a result, the body can slow its metabolism and spend fewer calories. When this occurs frequently, it becomes for the body to lose weight. Skipping breakfast and other subsequent meals also increases insulin sensitivity and may put you at greater risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Keeps You Active: Eating at the same time every day keeps your body active during the workday. With your mind concentrated by sticking to a schedule, the body is able to maintain a high energy level throughout the day. Missing a meal can have a negative impact on the body’s metabolism, mood, and performance.
Prevents Unhealthy Snacking: Eating on time every day accustoms your body to a set schedule. This also keeps a check on your munching urges and intake of excess sugar and fat through unhealthy snacks and fast food. To maintain specified quantities of energy, choose fruit, dry fruits, or boiled vegetables as a snacking option.
Regular Routine: Setting a consistent schedule is an excellent habit since it prioritises healthy eating. This results in a healthier lifestyle, more time for workouts, increased focus on everyday duties, and a more productive day. It may be difficult to stick to a schedule at first but sticking to it can give you amazing results.
Just because you’re on a diet doesn’t mean you have to forego lunch or dinner invitations. You just have to plan smartly on the things you can eat and their quantity. Plan your diet and include fruit, boiled vegetables, or nuts to give the right nutrition while helping you be full.
