Get….Set…. & “EAT”

Today one “fat loss” client of mine saw me finishing my  fruit and nuts oatmeal breakfast and said, “Radhika you can afford eating all this and eating every 2 hrs but I can’t. My reply was “Of course you can &  as a matter of fact everyone can.”

Switching from 2-3 big meals a day to 5-6 small meals a day can help improve your digestion, since the stomach now has the time to digest the food properly as quantity has gone down. Just like we can work better when we have 1 or 2 projects at hand. We all know what happens when our boss dumps 5 files on our desk at 5:30 pm right as we are getting ready to call it a day at work right!!!!!!! Too much load= too much stress=poor performance. So eating smaller portions lets the stomach perform at its optimum level.

Choosing to have 5-6 smaller meals a day also helps balance your metabolism. Remember hearing about BMR at your gym or weight loss clinic????  Slow metabolism= more fat, fast metabolism= less fat stores but steady metabolism= controlled/ideal/desired body weight.

Consume healthy, fresh and natural foods in these meals and add 2 -3 substantial snacks  as part of this 5-6 meals a day plan. Fresh fruits including banana, chiku, mango; nuts like almonds, walnuts, peanuts, cashews; natural cheese ; organic whole eggs ; fresh veggies including avocado; home-made ghee and curd are all part of the healthy diet plan and definitely need to be included in your diet.

Plan your meals in advance so you do not get stressed about it all.

All the best 🙂

Choose healthy, be healthy, look gorgeous and feel spectacular 😉

    • @ Hema: No, by eating small meals you train your stomach back to work efficiently and you end up consuming less calories if you eat whole, nutritious food at each of these meals. When your stomach works right, you don’t crave foods as your stomach knows that you will give it food at every 2-2½ hr interval.You will feel full and satisfied if you eat a balanced meal containing Carbs+ protein+ fat. Hope this clarifies your doubts 🙂
