How many times have you done a search for…
“Simple Ways To Lose Weight”
And how many ways did you come across in your search?
A LOT of ’em, right?
Sadly, many people (who are seeking simple ways to lose weight) end up falling into the trend of having a light breakfast (nothing wrong with that), then later…
… a “light” lunch, such as a sandwich and some sort of soup, or a grilled chicken salad.
And then for DINNER, it’s typically a big ‘ole, full-blown meal complete with meat, a very small amount of (over-cooked, nutrient-deficient) vegetables and a HUGE helping of some form of high-carb side dish PLUS bread on the side.
Now, you may be saying,
“So what? What’s wrong with that??”
Well, the ‘problem’ with that is…Dinner should be the LIGHTEST meal of the day in most cases (unless you’re doing something like intermittent fasting) but instead…
… it’s typically the heaviest AND it’s typically eaten way LATER than the last meal of the day should be eaten – which is said to be no less than 2-3 hours before bed.
But even then, you don’t really allow your body a lot of time or the ability to burn that meal off, so you “carry” it to bed.
So what if, instead of doing that, you chose to…
Switch out lunch with dinner
and have a much lighter meal at night (such as something that you would normally have for lunch) and then, at the same time…
Consume the heavier, dinner-style meal during lunch time.
You’d then have more time to burn off the calories from that meal and then not so much to burn off at nighttime.
Not only that, but your body doesn’t have to work as hard during the resting/repairing phase while you’re sleeping!
You could eat the typical, standard breakfast but if for some reason you don’t have/make time for a good, healthy breakfast, then a good protein-based meal replacement shake is an excellent choice for “the most important meal of the day”.
Then lunch would be whatever you cooked for dinner previously (night before, earlier in the week, etc.) that you have wrapped up FOR lunch.
And of course, dinner would be the typical lunch-style food such as that grilled chicken salad, a turkey sandwich, or even another shake if you REALLY wanna keep it simple & light AND if weight loss is your goal.
Basically, the whole idea here is to eat as light as you would for lunch during dinnertime and vice-versa, even if just the portion sizes are switched out where…
You’d eat whatever you want to eat, but just make adjustments to the PORTION SIZE (as well as, the amount of calories and simple carbs) – again, larger during lunchtime… smaller during dinnertime.
Now, doing this alone may or may not yield a MAJOR result, but it’s definitely a step in the right direction for creating good habits for long-term weight management.
So, the next time you find yourself sitting there searching for simple ways to lose weight, then consider trying the reverse-meal tip you just read!
