Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner are the three main meals of the day. How you think of these meals, and how much you eat at each will have a very big effect on your overall weight.
Many people chose to eat a small breakfast (or no breakfast at all), a medium sized lunch, and a large dinner. This is probably the worst possible thing you can do health wise, and for this reason most of the people who eat their meals in these proportions struggle with their weight. When one eats most of his or her calories later in the day, that person’s body has a lot less time to burn off those calories before going to sleep. And once a person goes to sleep, all those extra calories just turn into excess body fat.
Another big mistake, people make is not eating breakfast or lunch at all. Sometimes, people know that they are going to eat at their favorite restaurant and are going to eat something unhealthy, so they starve themselves the whole day in order to “save calories”. This is also a horrible eating habit, because at dinner you will probably be so hungry that you will eat upwards of 2,000 calories. Most of these calories will probably come from unhealthy, high in fat foods, and you will not have any time to burn them off before going to bed.
The Eating Proportions Lifestyle change:
The best proportions in which you should eat your meals are; a hearty breakfast, a medium sized lunch, and a light dinner. This way, your body will have plenty of time to burn off all those calories you ate earlier in the day. And when you do occasionally have a larger dinner, or go out to eat at an unhealthy restaurant; try to eat your dinner earlier as opposed to later, and make sure to eat breakfast and lunch. Skipping meals is always a bad idea, and a recipe for weight loss disaster.
