What and when do you eat earlier in the day? what is your workout regimen?

Eat real meals, starting with breakfast. Drink lots of fluids, starting in the morning.

I've found that if I eat a good breakfast with some protein, I can curb my tendency to want to snack at night.

Dances: salsa (standard/LA), casino, rueda de casino, cumbia Colombiana, bachata, mambo, cha-cha-chá, merengue, reggaetón.

Currently learning: Mexican cumbia, danzón, Cuban rumba

Dances to Learn in the future: flamenco, tango Argentino, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, ballroom rumba

I eat something every 3 hours.
It includes my 3 healthy meals.

I'll eat a sweet potato, raisins, fresh fruit or veggie, a handful of almonds etc inbetween....every 3 hours to keep the hunger away.

I'm a CNA in a nursing home, and often I don't get a break, so I keep a tiny box of raisins or nuts in my pocket and eat on the run...this way I'm not STARVING come dinner time and grabbing junk food while I cook dinner....

Finding fun fitness..

Eat a snack before you get hungry. I eat 3 meals and 2 snacks every day and the things that really help me are a good breakfast (300-400 calories, protein heavy) and an afternoon snack (100-200 calories) around 2:30 or 3pm.

It's hard because my breakfast is before 6am so it's a lot time between meals for me - which is why the snacks are a big help.

It's hard to tell without seeing your nutrition tracker what might be going on (are you tracking your food?). I also get a mid-afternoon slump. It's much worse if I don't have a protein-oriented breakfast (like an egg white sandwich). If I have to snack I try eating something with more protein than sugar, like nuts or yogurt.

I used to eat "healthy" oatmeal or cereal for breakfast, but it just didn't contain enough protein and my pre-dinner cravings would be really bad. Try getting more protein earlier in the day, see if that helps.

My Sparkpage is set to private, but I'm open to SparkMail!

I do find about eating and not being hungry until about 4 pm. I am starving and no matter what I eat it doesn't curve the hunger. What is the best thing to do to help with that point of my day?
