Nutrition for weight loss is all about timing. For maximum results, fruits and other foods high in sugar should be eaten as early in the day as possible to give your body time to process the sugar before bed. Carbohydrates should also be eaten early in the day or as a pre-workout boost. You should consume your breakfast within 30 minutes of waking and you should not eat anything after 7:00 pm. Another thing about timing for best results: eat 5 – 300 calorie meals per day 2 – 3 hours apart.
