“When to eat?” is a question that many often ask. It’s good to eat when you start to feel hungry. If you wait too long to eat you may feel irritable, moody, you may have a lack of energy or even a headache. Another consequence of waiting too long is that you may not make good food choices or overeat!
Eat at regular times, in moderate portions. A general recommendation is to eat every three to five hours. Many find that eating three balanced meals a day, as well as one or two healthy snacks, is easiest for them. Others eat five or six smaller meals a day. Finding what works best for you and your family may take some practice, but don’t give up! You will soon find that you have the energy you need to stay active!
