Eating habits for weight loss – Midafternoon till dinner

Jun 12th 2014 at 11:25 PM

Midafternoon is low blood sugar time for most people & an afternoon snack is often a must. Once again, count those hours & watch out for “big bridges.” The size of the snack depends on the body needs. The choices fall into the categories of protein, healthy fat & low-glycemics. These foods balance out the blood sugars & form a healthy bridge to dinner.
Most people tend to make poor choices at this time of day. Some reasons include the fact that breakfast & lunch were not properly balanced & so the body is screaming out due to the over-production of insulin. When this happens the body looks for carbohydrates to balance out, but unfortunately the kinds of foods chosen are not what the body had in mind.
Sometimes a person will “be good” & choose fruit.Venus factor Program by John Barban

This usually has a back-lash & within an hour or so, the body is screaming to eat again or their could be symptoms of hypoglycemia including shakiness, light headedness, extreme hunger, blurred vision, etc.
Dinner is the time for a balanced meal. It should contain healthy protein & fat, low-glycemic carbohydrates & a balance of healthy high-glycemics. When the body fat percentage is too high, it’s a good idea to eat at least two cups of low-glycemics to help hold the blood sugars. I’m not in favor of eating refined sugars at this meal, but sometimes it takes awhile before an individual can wean themselves. I always suggest that my office patients stay away from bingechoices.
If one “must have” a cookie or something sweet, choose one that is “ok” but “not to die for.” Once again, the serving sizes at dinner depend on the needs of the body including the lean body mass, exer-cise & stress levels. When a person eats correctly, after a short while, the physiological appetite levels usually balance themselves. Emotional & compulsive eating are separate issues & need to managed in a different way. The body is very intelligent & knows what to do when it is provided with what it needs. 
Of course, in rare instances there are other medical problems, but for the large majority of people the problems are nothing more than lack of desire, lack of knowledge, lack of planning, lack of exercise, lack of stress management, lack of follow-through & selfdisorder.
