Are you Eating a Snack in the Afternoon?

Eating a little bit less at dinner time is going to help you lose weight, and I have a great tip to help you do that. I’m doctor Mary Clifton, and I’ve been helping people lose a lot of weight with plant-based nutrition for a decade now. I have a great idea for you.

If you want to eat a little bit less at dinner, that’s a smart thing to do.

Eating and then not moving very much after you eat results in the food being put into deposition instead of into energy production. Tweet this!

For example, if you eat in the morning, in the midday and then have a smaller dinner, you should be able to lose weight a little quicker and especially lose your fat a little quicker.

Getting a little bit less dinner in is a smart idea. Just restructuring the calories that way makes a lot of sense.

Eat a protein snack in the mid-afternoon.  Tweet this!

Studies show that eating a snack at about 3:00 PM reduces hunger at dinner time, increases satiety so you feel full and you end up eating less dinner.

Eat a simple snack. In the study, the recommended snack was a Greek yogurt, but I think that’s probably because the study was partially funded by somebody involved with yogurt. But you could eat a snack of your choice.

I would eat a small container of hummus with pretzels, some hummus with cut up vegetables or a small salad. All those things are surprisingly high in protein, great on calories. You are going to feel a bit full as you approach your dinner meal. That will make it a lot easier to listen to your hunger, eat a lot less food, and get that gorgeous body that you’ve been looking for.

I hope this tip is successful for you. Let me know in the comments below, and give me your opinion on what it’s like to eat those calories in midday. I’ll be looking forward to hearing from you.
