Step 4 – Regular eating

Eat more meals

You know how it goes.  You jump out of bed in the morning, rush to get yourself showered and dressed and then it’s all about getting the kids dressed and fed before school.  You hardly have time to grab something to eat before you rush out of the door.  Then you get busy at work.  The only thing you consume until 11:00 is four cups of coffee.  Eventually at lunchtime you’ll have something to eat, and then it’s famine again until supper.

What are we doing?  We’re basically telling our bodies that we’re starving for the biggest part of the day, and because we usually don’t eat breakfast our metabolism never even wakes up.  Our body stores everything that it ingests, because it doesn’t know when it’s going to be fed again.
