One of my favorite pieces of advice I give clients, whether they want to lose weight, better control diabetes, or just learn how to eat better, is to eat regular meal and snacks. This means eating breakfast within an hour of waking up and then eating a snack or meal every three to four hours. Also, try to eat each meal around the same time each day (eg. breakfast around 8AM, lunch around noon, mid-day snack at 3PM, etc.). Your body’s circadian rhythm helps regulate hunger. By eating around the same time each day without letting too much time pass between meals and snacks, you can establish regular hunger signals and your body knows what to expect. You’ll also find that by eating regular meals and snacks, you won’t let your body get too hungry, which can set you up to overeat later in the day.
