This outdated nutrition advice might be keeping you stuck with an inefficient metabolism & be blocking fat burning! (Literally the opposite of what they tell you it would do).
When you eat (especially snacks), your blood sugar rises and so does your insulin. Insulin’s job is to put the sugar in the cells of the body for use or storage.
When insulin is in the blood, the message the body gets is “store fat.”
If we are eating all day, we are constantly raising our insulin levels and keeping our body in a fat STORAGE mode.
You can’t burn fat and store it at the same time so this is how snacking actually blocks your fat burning.
Hot tip: Stop snacking!
Tip for getting started with this: Have your snacks right at the end of your meal instead of a few hours later.
Note: If you can’t make it to the next meal, try adding more fat and protein to your meals. If you’re getting shaky, hangry, anxious, fatigued, dizzy, or having any other sign of a blood sugar low, you should definitely eat. This is an energy crisis and this is not healthy hunger.
Keep adding more fat and protein to your meals to see if you can last longer. If you don’t you may have reactive hypoglycemia or other blood sugar issues *not medical advice or diagnosis*.
****If you have reactive hypoglycemia, you may not be able to stop snacking or eating frequent meals right away; however, this is the goal!*****
