Didn't your momma tell you to eat your breakfast?
Of course! I know mine did.
Momma knows best.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
However, read why eating 5 others meals could prove to be very beneficial.
Keys to consuming 6 meals a day
You probably have heard about the growing trend of eating 6 meals every day but you are still skeptical about this idea and do not know if it is right for you, and that’s why we here at WICKED strength are here to help!
The idea of eating 6 meals a day stems from a diet suggesting that you eat breakfast within 1 hour of waking up, then every 3 hours after that and stop eating at least 3 hours before bed.
Benefits of this style of diet include:
- increased energy levels
- a decreased appetite
- and a few other factors.
When you eat 6 small meals a day, you are constantly providing your body with fuel, which is extremely important strength training.
In order to start out your day properly, it is important to express the importance of breakfast.
Many of you are not breakfast eaters, but you need to forget about that and think about what your body needs if you are serious about keeping your metabolism fueled and running throughout the day.
Just Like Your Mother Told You, BREAKFAST Is The Most Important Meal Of The Day!!!
You should consume something nutritious within an hour of waking.
If you aren’t a breakfast person, consider trying
- nutritious smoothie
- a sport bar
- piece of fruit
- or even a protein powder drink.
The key after breakfast is to consume SMALL meals spaced out about every 2.5 to 3 hours and listen to your body.
The more frequent smaller meals will help boost your metabolism because you are not putting in tons of food all at once.
Basically, your digestion can be more focused and efficient.
When the body does not have to sort through our digested food and find the nutrients that we need, we can ensure that all of the nutrients we need are taken up efficiently.
Benefit: 6 meals a day = less energy will be stored in the form of fat.
The idea of consuming 6 meals each day is important so that you are constantly supplying your body with the fuel that it needs to function properly.
Until next time,
