Know Your Requirements
Everyone has a certain number of caloric requirements as well as certain number of grams of fats, carbohydrates and protein along with other nutrients. Make sure that you are aware of the daily dietary requirements that you have. You will ideally make a plan that incorporates all nutrients but the total calories that you will consume will be less than that you require per day.
Design Smaller Portions
Instead of eating three meals a day, you can switch to six mini meals. Now this may sound a little bit too much but research has shown that it is better to eat in smaller portions more often as it does not wake up your digestive system all of a sudden from a lull and you have a more active metabolism. It also means that you will not feel very hungry and will abstain from binge eating.
You will need to incorporate the nutrients at the right time. For example, you want to make sure that you have carbohydrates in your breakfast as you will need more energy in the start of the day. Similarly, eat fruits as a snack during the day at times when you have to perform tasks as they will not only give you a filling feeling but will also provide you with much needed energy. Make sure that you have a simple dinner so that your system slows down and allows you a good night’s sleep.
Your entire plan should not revolve only around proteins but you should have a greater percentage of your diet in protein. Having a lunch that has more proteins is a pretty good idea. Though never give up fats or carbohydrates altogether because doing so can have adverse effects on your health and will also cause cravings for fatty foods.
