Rule #1: Taper Off Your Carbs
Eat carbs at the beginning of the day, when you really need the energy. Later in the day, your body needs less and the carbs you consume are more likely to be stored as body fat. This rule does not only apply to your meals – but also your snacks. If you want to lose weight, it is important to eat every 3 hours to keep your metabolism engaged. Be sure to choose healthy foods. Shaun T’s morning snack has more carbs than his afternoon snack, and so on.
If you were to abide by this rule, carb-loading earlier in the day and minimizing your carbohydrate consumption as the day goes on, your meals would look something like this:
Breakfast: 40% Carbs, 30% Protein and 30% Fat (600 calories)
- Whole wheat bagel and 2 tbsp of all-natural peanut butter
- 5 egg whites with a half-cup of bell peppers
- 3 slices of lean turkey bacon
