Benefits To Eating Balanced Meals

This Sparked Me!

Eating protein with your carbs will help prevent hunger. Protein helps slow the digestion of carbs so you have more evenly dispersed energy that last longer into your day. Carbs don't always mean breads and pasta. Fruits & veggies are carbs too...they're fiborous carbs. Try to eat your heavier carbs earlier in the day when you need the energy and will burn it off and choose salad and meat for supper :).
