Day 26 of the 30 Days of Healthy Habits: Don't Skip Meals
It’s common for people to think that when they skip a meal, they are ‘saving’ calories. But this can backfire. By mid-afternoon or early evening, you may feel very hungry. Our body needs fuel in the form of food to function, so when it’s deprived, it screams out for what it needs – food! Willpower is no match. Skipping meals sets you up for failure and will lead you down the path of low energy.
Eat 3 meals a day and healthy snacks when needed. You’ll notice you get through the day with more energy, and when you plan your meals out during the day, you can make healthier choices. It’s much easier to make unhealthy choices when you need to eat something now, and you just grab the closest thing you can find.
Plan ahead and be sure not to skip meals and you’re sure to notice a difference in how you feel and will usually end up eating fewer calories during the day.
