Daily Schedule



Recommended Posts

Oes it help to have a daily eating schedule? Maybe when and what. Im just thinking because i can be a mindless grazer so i was thinking a schedule might help.

What does anyone else do?

I make sure I eat within an hour of waking. I keep a high Protein snack with me just in case. lunch is no later than 12:30. dinner at 6:00. It helps me to stick to this schedule, otherwise I would graze.....

Brandi, great question. I have been wondering the same thing. Does everyone eat ever so many hours?

Figure out what works best for you. It may be a case of trial and error in the beginning. I log my food and exercise in myfitnesspal.com and prefer to log in advance so that I have planned what I will eat and do that day - makes it easier for me to say no to extras!

You might want to check with your surgeon regarding a band fill if u are grazing. U know sometimes I go to my old habit of grazing web I'm not actually hungry (that's my head talking) I am also learning to listen to my body and if I feel I'm grazing I know I need to have good foods ready, or get my fill. Hope thus helps I struggle at times.

Something my doc told me since I have this same prob. In short, it all has to do with metabolism, blood sugar, insulin, and signals to the liver to make or use fat. If you are eating constantly, the brain gets the wrong signals about what to do to give you energy, which can trigger a fat storing process when you want the opposite. Eating about 200 cal 5 to six times a day sends the right signals, so a schedule is better. Think of it as stoking a fire. Obviously, you want your 200 cals to be mostly Protein, so you can build muscle,etc.

This makes sense to me, but if you've been a grazer, it's harder to do than it looks.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
