When to Eat

When to Eat


The old saying, “3 square meals a day” is old and done with. But how often should we eat anyways? Everyone should know what hours are most appropriate for you to eat your breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. If you’re not sure when is the right time for each meal, this chart will show you exactly what you need to know. It also indicates what foods are best with that particular hour. 


Do you know just how many or how little calories you should consume at each meal? Well neither did I until I read this daily calorie intake chart. It is based on a 1,200 calories diet, not 2,000 calories. So make any necessary changes if you intake more than 1,200 calories per day.  

  • Here’s a fun cheat sheet to help you find what to eat at any hour


“Certainly what we eat has an enormous impact on our health and weight status. But did you know that when and how we eat also make a huge difference? Eating at the appropriate times throughout the day will help to maximize fat burning and keep hunger at bay.”


“Aim to eat every 3 to 4 hours. Most people eat three meals and one snack, while others may prefer four smaller meals; you’re free to find the combination that works best for you. Timing your meals in this way will improve your fat loss by preventing excess insulin, allowing leptin to work its magic on appetite control and metabolism, and by balancing the stress hormone cortisol. You should also enjoy your meals at the same time every day.”

“Eat within 1 hour of rising. Your mom was also right when she told you breakfast was the most important meal of the day. When you skip breakfast, you lose its stimulating benefits on your metabolic rate. You also become more likely to eat unbalanced meals, more calories, and larger amounts of saturated fat throughout the day. Plenty of research shows that those of us who skip breakfast are actually heavier. Missing out on a healthy morning meal also increases stress hormones.”


“Never eat within 3 hours of bedtime. Eating too close to bedtime raises your body temperature, increases blood sugar and insulin, prevents the release of melatonin, and cuts down on growth hormone release. All these factors interfere with the quality of your sleep and the natural fat-burning benefits of a good night’s rest. Furthermore, sleep deprivation leads to more cravings and a greater likelihood of overeating the next day.”

“If you must eat before bed, opt for a light meal or snack that’s high in protein and low in carbohydrates and fat, such as a protein shake made with berries and water, salad with grilled chicken, or a shrimp and veggie stir-fry.”


“Start the day with protein. For better appetite control throughout the day, try combining your starchy carbs at lunch, dinner, or after your workouts rather than at breakfast. Stick to eggs or whey protein smoothies for breakfast and you’ll eat less throughout the day.”


“Always eat within 45 minutes of finishing your workout. This meal or snack is the only one of the day that should not contain much fat and should be higher in carbohydrates. For example, have a smoothie made with juice, fruit, and protein powder, but no flaxseeds or oil.”

When To Hug Someone: Life’s Greatest Mystery

You Monsters Are People.

Knowing when to hug someone is a question that has plagued humanity since its very inception. Confounded cave-people deduced how to trap and eat their monkey brethren right away but would have to wait thousands of years before even the most basic hugging etiquette could be established. Misplaced hugs have torn apart families, ruined lives and even caused wars (probably World War I). Despite thousands of years of struggling with hug protocol, scientists have yet to unlock its deepest most powerful mysteries.

There was a period in my life where I had friends and then hugged them until we were all so tired from embracing that we had to take lengthy naps. They were like platonic orgies. It was a perfect world where everything made sense and nobody felt bad about themselves or each other. We drank, talked and warmly embraced each other deep into the morning hours. Through perseverance and…

The Other Side Of Peter Pan Syndrome: When Your Friends Grow Up And Leave You Behind

Thought Catalog

There comes a time in our lives where all of us wake up and realize that it’s time for us to grow up and accept the so called “adult” way of living. The time when we finally get our shit together and forget the way of living back when we were below the age of 18. When mistakes were made and Neverland felt like it really did come to life for us, but what if you’re just another Peter Pan?

Whether a male or female, you’ve had difficulty of accepting the fact that the important people in your life are finally moving forward while you’re still stuck in limbo. It’s as if your mind is holding you back from keeping up with the flock and is just too stubborn. The problem is that you can’t accept the reality that you need change and though you know you want to keep…
