What To Eat When

Look (UK) - - LOOK FIT! -

It’s not news that eat­ing healthily will help you on your road to The Lean Life, but ap­par­ent­ly­when you eat is just as im­por­tant as what. It’s all about di­ges­tion; some foods take longer than oth­ers, some are eas­ier to process than oth­ers. Take dairy. Re­search shows that con­sum­ing any­thing high in lac­tose be­fore work­ing could ac­tu­ally cause nau­sea be­cause the high fat con­tent di­verts blood away from the gut. It’s the same with eggs. Pasta? Un­less you’re on the move, some nu­tri­tion­ists have said that it will cre­ate glu­cose and en­ergy you don’t need. Cher­ries, too – try snack­ing on a few be­fore bed be­cause the mela­tonin will help your body to re­lax be­fore a good night’s kip. So the next time you reach for a snack, re­mem­ber: tim­ing is ev­ery­thing.

With meals, tim­ing is ev­ery­thing eat It or beat It!
