Health Tip of the Month

Eat regularly


Skipping meals, especially breakfast, can lead to out-of-control hunger and unwanted blood sugar spikes, often resulting in helpless overeating. When you skip meals, your metabolism slows down and you aren’t burning calories like you should. Your body thinks you are starving so when you eat again, your body stores away more than usual, resulting in more fat. Snacking between meals can help curb hunger.

In simple terms, this means having breakfast, lunch and an evening meal, with 1-2 snacks in between meals (ideally fruit or vegetables) every day.
