Are you having problems losing weight?
If you’re like a lot of people, you’ve been at it for a while, but not seeing much results. You’re training hard, getting stronger, faster, and you’re eating right, but you’re stuck, and barely any more weight is coming off now.
Well I’d like to share a strategy that I use for myself and others to lose the weight and keep it off. This way of eating works for me and my clients regardless of our food preferences.
In case you didn't know, eating the bulk of your calories in the daytime will help you burn more fat than eating them in the evening. But, did you know that you can burn up to 50% more calories??? That’s insane!
Calories eaten in the morning are less fattening than the same calories eaten in the evening!
This is due to diet-induced thermogenesis. That’s the amount of energy (calories) the body uses up to digest and process a meal. It all has to do with chronobiology and how our circadian rhythm utilizes blood sugar more efficiently in the mornings.
So what to do? Follow the King, Prince, Pauper method of eating:
Eat your biggest meal of the day in the morning for breakfast (king).
Eat a regular size meal for lunch (prince).
Eat a small meal or snack for dinner (pauper).
A good place to start is to eat 50% of your calories for breakfast (and mid morning snack), eat 30% for lunch, and 20% of calories for dinner. Example: if you normally eat a 1500 calorie diet per day, eat 750 calories between breakfast and a mid morning snack. Eat 450 calories for lunch, and eat 300 calories for dinner.
A couple of other helpful tips:
Make sure dinner is completed by 7:00pm (earlier is even better!)
Eat a healthful diet. Eating junk food daily will not help you lose weight regardless of what diet you do.
Whenever me and my clients fall off the health-wagon, we go back to this method of eating and the weight falls off in days. That's why it is my favorite weight loss strategy.
