Eat For Your Schedule

In the past experts have suggested eating 5-6 small meals per day. In actuality, individuals react differently to food consumption. Some of us experience anxiety when being concerned about how we're going to get "the proper foods"' at "the proper times". This anxiety, or stress, releases cortisol in the body which sends the body into survival mode causing you to tend to retain and/or gain useless fat. If this is you, try this simple process. Eat when you can, but when making your food choices consider your potential activity level formthe next few hours. If you are planning to work out later, then allow a few extra carbs in that meal. For instance, a sandwich with quality protein and whole grain bread will provide a good energy source for your afternoon workout. If you are planning to be at your desk for the next few hours, a salad and some cottage cheese or yogurt would compliment your energy needs. Treat your body like you are planning a car trip. If you don't expect to use a lot of fuel, just top off the tank. If you're going to be speeding or going on a long trip, fill the tank. Just remember to fill it with quality carbs and, as the signs say, don't top off. :) Eating this way will keep you energized for what's next in your life without the stress of continuous meal planning. By being wise, you'll be happy and healthy while training with your favorite trainer.
