One thing you need to know if you wanting to lose weight!
We are eating all the time. Societal norms have changed and we are surrounded by food in offices, homes, schools, everywhere.
We have been brainwashed to believe that constant eating/snacking is good for us.
Several myths have perpetuated that snacking is good. Eating six small meals a day was justified to help by increasing your metabolic rate and hence help with weight loss. Recent studies have confirmed that this is incorrect and do not support this myth.
Do you know what happens each time you eat food- be it a small or large meal?
Every time you consume food with carbohydrates or protein, insulin is released in response to food and that is normal. And insulin is the #1 fat-storing hormone. Just imagine if we spend 18 hours in an insulin-dominant state – SNACKING…How can we lose weight?
A simple way to keep track is a food journal. A food journal might seem trivial but can be a game-changer in achieving your goal.
There are multiple apps you can use or just an old-fashioned journal to log.
Here is an interesting study if you would like to read and explore more.
