What type of food do you eat before 3:00pm – 4:00pm? Studies show that we all should eat breakfast and a have healthy snacks thru out the day, not only for energy and memory boost, but also for managing your weight.
To lose weight, we can include healthy protein snacks in our diet to boost our metabolism and balance our blood sugar. The lower our blood sugar – the lower our insulin level will be. Because insulin causes our body to store fat around midsection, eating healthy and regular snacks thru the day will lower your insulin level to good steady state, which will help keep your tummy in shape!
