In any wellness plan, you will the secret to lose weight is to eat more often. Well there is a reason why all these wellness specialists are saying this – because it is the truth!! The more often you fuel your body, the easier it will be for this food to be processed. What happens when your body doesn’t receive the fuel it needs, is that is goes into “starvation mode”. So rather than break down the food that has last been eaten, the body stores it as fat because it doesn’t know when it will receive a recharge.

Eating 3 main meals with 2-3 snacks a day will keep your metabolism in high gear to break down your food in a way that best serves your body.

Rather your digestive system goes into high gear trying to break down these foreign substances.

Before choosing a food to eat, ask yourself “Does this best serve my body?”. Fill your meals and snacks with good proteins, carbs, fruits and vegetables to feel and look your best. Eating well will improve your energy levels, improve the look of your skin and make your body system happy (helping prevent against disease and other health problems). Eating healthy is not hard, it’s about making smart choices.
