Lunch is often the ‘mid day’ bite where we often fall down and consume too many calories and eat the wrong kinds foods due to convenience and our busy lifestyles. It so easy to grab a pre packed sandwich or go for some kind of pastry but its essential we fuel the body correctly for training later in the day.
Eating a healthy balanced lunch a several hours after breakfast is key to re-enerising our bodies and keeping the mind and body energised. Your metabolic fire will be dying out a little from breakfast so its important at this stage we add the fuels the body requires to keep those calories burning.
Skipping lunch = bad idea
It’s common to want to skip lunch if you’re trying to lose weight or cut calories, but that strategy rarely works. According to the Weight Control Information Network, people who regularly skip meals tend to weigh more than people who eat often throughout the day. Skipping lunch can rev up your appetite later, causing you to overeat or choose foods that have poor nutritional values.
