Timing plays an important part in our lives, especially when it comes to do with our health. We certainly know how our diet has a huge impact on our health too.

But did you know that the timing of our meals also makes a huge differences?

Eating at the appropriate times throughout the day will help to maximize fat burning and keep hunger at bay.

According to Women’s Health, these are the best makan timings to help you to lose weight.

Eat within 1 hour of rising

Breakfast is indeed the most important meal of the day. When you skip breakfast, you lose its stimulating benefits on your metabolic rate.

You also become more likely to eat unbalanced meals, more calories, and larger amounts of saturated fat throughout the day.

A review of studies conducted found out that breakfast eaters generally consumed more daily calories yet were less likely to be overweight. Because let’s face it: we always trend to overeat when we’re feeling hungry AF.

Want to reduce your likelihood of overeating throughout the day? Eat your breakfast!

Aim to eat every 3 to 4 hours

Timing your meals in this way will improve your fat loss by preventing excess insulin, allowing leptin to work its magic on appetite control and metabolism, and by balancing the stress hormone cortisol. You should also enjoy your meals at the same time every day. Consistency is key.

Never eat within 3 hours of bedtime

Eating too close to bedtime raises your body temperature, increases blood sugar and insulin, prevents the release of melatonin, and cuts down on growth hormone release.

Sure, you’ll feel less hungry. But you’re sacrificing the quality of your sleep and the natural fat-burning benefits of a good night’s rest.

It would probably lead to more cravings the next day, due to your sleep deprivation. Not a good choice, if you were to ask me. You’re increasing the likelihood of overeating.

If you must eat before bed, opt for a light meal or snack that’s high in protein and low in carbohydrates and fat, such as a protein shake made with berries and water or a salad with grilled chicken.
