Eat what you want

One of the biggest challenges in life is food. Food is also one of the greatest blessings. For me it is Oreos and milk. The combination may even be better than Peanut butter and Jelly. Yep, I said it!

When it comes to food and nutrition it can be complicated. There are so many diets, and so many algorithms that it can be perplexing.

We are going to keep it simple. Eat early and often

I often hear about people eating less than 1,000 calories a day and wondering "Why am I not losing weight? "

One of the reasons is simple. You are starving yourself, your body is actually producing fat for you so you can survive. You need to eat more than that.

Eating between 2 to 3 thousand calories a day is about right. Depending on your physical activity you can eat more. I currently consume around 4 to 5 thousand calories a day depending on how much physical activity I do.

The key is this. Eat early and often. If you concentrate the majority of your calories in the morning, your body will have all day to break it down. Then taper your meals as you go through the day, making dinner actually somewhat light.

I encourage you to set up 5 meals a day.

Reclaiming your life from Social Media
