Finish your day off as healthy as you start it. Lots of people trying to lose weight start their day off beautifully, with yogurt, a protein shake, or eggs, only to finish it off with a huge dinner, overconsuming and emotionally eating the wrong foods at night (cookies, cereal, crackers, and cheese). Does this sound familiar to you? If so, it would be beneficial to start keeping a food journal. The path to getting more energy and a flatter stomach is to ensure that dinner time is early and not heavy in calories, fat, and starches. If you’re at the office until late, eat a snack later in the afternoon to ensure you’re not ravenous by the time you get home; when you’re that hungry, it’s very difficult to make the right food choices. For optimal health, eat light, and lean in the evening.
