Every body is different, and each of you require a slightly different diet for optimal health (this is one reason why we offer private coaching! If you are interested, email firstname.lastname@example.org for a Free Consultation). However, there are a few standard rules most people can apply to their dietary intake to increase health and shed a few pounds along
the way! Here they are:
Sometimes I prefer referring to this meal as supper because it is a good reminder that it is a supplemental meal. Supper is only meant to provide you with enough energy and nutrients to get you to bed, which is nothing in comparison to breakfast’s job of getting you through the whole day. Be sure to treat it as a supplemental meal.
Primarily aim to eat lean, clean protein and green vegetables. Adding some nuts and seeds is fine as well. Given the hour of this meal, additional carbohydrates are unnecessary, and will more likely lead to weight gain.
If you are trying to lose weight, THIS IS SO IMPORTANT!: Stop eating 2-3 hours before becoming inactive! If you go to bed at midnight, but stop and sit on the couch around 10pm, you should really finish dinner by 8pm at the latest. I also advise clients to take an evening stroll or play an active game like charades or the Wii. This way, you actually burn a number of the calories you’ve just eaten before bedtime.
