One should break one’s night long fast at the time of sunrise and end one’s last main meal at the time of sunset. Here’s are the points through you can break down your day’s meals.

*Breakfast like a King

Our biological system is such that whatever we eat in the morning is absorbed and assimilated to the maximum. It is the meal that the body uses to top up its glucose levels after 8 to 12 hours of fasting. If you are skipping your breakfast then you will have a short attention time, will be less alert, will take a longer time to react, will have low blood sugar level. So, morning food should be full of nutrition, be low-fat and have a large portion of fruits is recommended.

*Lunch like a Prince

Food eaten during lunch should be easily digestible and low-fat. At lunchtime, eat a substantial meal to fuel you for the afternoon but make sure that isn’t too heavy. Essentially, it should be a medium-sized meal – smaller than breakfast but larger than dinner.

*Dinner like a Beggar

We need the most energy at the beginning of the day and the least at the end. So, dinner should be the lightest meal of the day. If you eat a large meal at dinner, which is traditional in most homes, weight gain can occur as the body cannot use all the energy in the food and thus stores it as fat instead. If you are taking a heavy meal at the dinner time then you might get sleep disturbances.

2.HOW TO EAT

While eating, one should attend to the way the food is being chewed, the tastes of different food items, the way it goes down the food pipe to the stomach, etc. Avoid watching TV while eating. One should avoid overeating just because you like the taste of the food. Instead, eat what you love slowly, relishing every part of the meal; that way you will feel full faster and you will not crave for more food. Drinking water should be avoided while having your meals, but it should be taken half an hour before having your meals and 1hr after having your meals.
