Review of Week 11 – Go BIG with Eating 6 Small Meals a Day

For this week’s optimizing yourself exercise, I ate six small regularly scheduled meals a day instead of three big meals. For the first four days, it felt like an inconvenience to stop and prepare so many small meals when I didn’t feel hungry, but as I continued to follow the schedule, by the fifth day, I felt the difference.

I started to feel more energy, and was able to take my dog on longer walks, and I didn’t feel dizzy once, yet I didn’t need to snack because I never got hungry. I also ate healthier food, like eggs and vegetables and fruit, instead of getting hungry and eating heavy food.

After only one week of establishing this routine, I was feeling better and more balanced, and I am going to continue on with this new routine and make it a habit.

52 Weeks To Optimizing Yourself – Week 11 – Bo BIG With Eating Small Meals Frequently

Eat small meals frequently

Eating small meals frequently creates balance

I met a friend this week at a coffee shop and she looked really good, and said she changed to eating six small meals throughout the day, instead of three large meals.

She said by distributing her food evenly throughout the day, and not allowing herself to get hungry, she doesn’t end up overeating.

I am going to take her advice and schedule six small meals a day instead of three large ones, so I can avoid feeling lightheaded before my meals and tired after them.

She said if you wait until you are hungry to eat, your body stores fat, as it thinks you are starving it.

This week I am going to form a new eating schedule so I will feel better. I will let you know how it goes next week.
