Eat Right, Not Just Less: The Science Behind Meal Timing for Weight Loss

Many people on social media talk about when to eat to lose or gain weight. But it’s not just about when you eat; it’s also about what you eat and how many calories are in your food. Different foods have different amounts of calories. For example, fat and carbohydrates have a lot of calories, while protein has fewer calories. So, it’s important to eat a balanced diet with all these types of foods. Here’s a simple rule: to maintain your weight, you need about 25 calories for each kilogram you weigh. To lose weight, you can gradually eat fewer calories until you reach your ideal weight.

Think about when you eat too. It’s better to eat more calories during the day when your body is active. At night, when you’re sleeping, your body doesn’t need as many calories. Your body follows a natural rhythm. Your meals should have a mix of carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, fats, fiber, and protein. Breakfast is essential because it helps you start the day with energy. Skipping breakfast can lead to digestive problems.

Lunch should also be balanced. If you prefer a big lunch, have it between 1 and 2 pm when your body can burn the calories. Avoid very fatty or spicy foods, as they can cause digestive issues.

Finish eating by 7 or 8 pm so that your body has time to digest before you go to bed.

When you eat, sit up straight. This helps your body digest the food better. Drinking water is important too; it helps food move through your body.

So, remember to eat the right foods, at the right times, and in the right amounts to stay healthy and manage your weight.
