The issue of weight has become one of the major topics of interest not only in the United States, but the entire world. About 70% of the United States population is overweight, which amounts to 210 million people. Carrying extra weight increases many health risks for overweight people. Some are minor like the common cold and achy knees. Others are more serious such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and cancer.
The key to weight loss is changing your eating schedule. Most people eat healthy enough where they could lose weight if they just helped their body out by keeping their rate of metabolism high all day long. These people are slowing their metabolism down by overloading their body with big meals during breakfast, lunch and dinner. These meals overwork the body and make it difficult for them to break down and digest the food.
A great change is eating smaller but more frequent meals during the day. This will allow you to continue eating the foods you love but still lose the extra weight you are carrying. These smaller meals accomplish this because they allow the body to function properly and digest food at a pace it can handle. This keeps the body's rate of metabolism high, which will help you lose weight by burning the most calories, possible through the day and into the night.
The best time to start this diet is today. You will be eating all your favorite foods but just altering the portions you eat in each sitting. You will still be eating the same quantities of food, if not more, over the course of the day.
