What Time of Day to Eat: Myth Debunked!
This is John Logan at Powerfit Personal Training. I want to debunk a myth that’s out there. Many people think that they should stop eating at a certain time of night, say, 6 PM, and they might not go to bed ’til 10. Now, it’s absolutely false. You need to be eating every three hours, no matter what. First thing in the morning when you wake up, you need to be fueling your body. Every three hours you need to be eating. If we’re not eating every three hours, our stomach is completely empty. We eat, it takes about three hours to digest, and then our stomach is empty. When that happens, our body goes back inside yourself and doesn’t burn fat, it actually burns muscle tissue, it could take bone, it can take connective tissue. For all those people that are having long periods of time where they’re stopping at a certain time of night, stop doing that, you need to feed your body. You’ll lose more weight, you’ll feel better, you’ll actually get the results that you’re looking for and create a lifestyle for yourself that’s going to be something you’re going to do forever.
This is what we recommend at Powerfit Personal Training. As soon as you wake up, you need to eat a meal. Every three hours from then on out, no matter what time of day it is, you need to be eating. Don’t starve yourself in the morning, don’t starve yourself in the middle part of the day, and please, many people starve themselves into the evening, completely false. Continue to eat if you’re awake all the way until bedtime. As long as it’s high quality food, your body’s going to know what to do with it to keep you healthy, help you lose weight, gain muscle, boost that metabolism, all the good things to keep you 100% healthy.
