First, eat your breakfast, like your [url=https://cbsecure.co.uk/lumaslim-review/] LumaSlim [/url] mother always told you. When people eat late at night they wake up full, says Diana Vermilion, R.D., director of nutrition services at New Mexico Sports and Wellness. Then they skip breakfast, which starts the cycle of not eating properly throughout the day. Eating three square meals will help keep your blood sugar stable so you won't feel famished at night. And don't forget the power of snacking. Eating smaller portions in more frequent intervals, also known as grazing, helps stave off hunger while ensuring that your body receives a steady supply of nutrients. At work, try to keep a bag of trail mix, fruit or other healthy snack within arm's reach. This will help you avoid that other American tradition, the enormous lunch. And snacking helps you stay alert. As everyone who's ever nodded off at the computer in the afternoon can tell you, large meals tend to make you tired.
As for what food to eat, a good place to start is the USDA Food Guide Pyramid. The Pyramid calls for eating at least 5-11 servings of breads and pasta, 3-5 servings of vegetables and 2-4 servings of fruit a day. A few servings of lowfat or nonfat dairy products like milk, cheese and yogurt and 2-3 servings of meat, fish and nuts will provide you with plenty of protein and calcium. Try to avoid the empty calories of soft drinks and the high fat content of salad dressings, butter and margarine.
Contrary to popular opinion, a healthy diet doesn't have to mean sacrificing treats. In fact, depriving yourself during the day is one way to set yourself up for disaster at night. Enjoy a cookie or small portion of dessert after lunch or dinner. This will satisfy your sweet tooth without putting you over the top in fat and calories.
Since most of us can't make it from dinner to bedtime without a trip or two to the kitchen, it's a good idea to have an early evening snack. Stick with light carbohydrates, such as cereal, a piece of fruit or whole grain toast with a bit of jelly. If you know my teaching, you know that I don't like eating carbohydrates alone. Include a small amount of protein with your carbohydrate snack. Peanut butter is a perennial favorite. This will keep you from waking up at night with a craving for a pepperoni pizza.
