"Life is not merely to be alive;
but to be well."

The selected Health Tip is summarized below.  An audio clip of the tip as presented
 by Dr. Leah on the Chat With Women radio show is available at the end of the tip.

Eat like a King in the morning  -- but like a Prince at noon and a Pauper at night

This is a repeat of the very first Health Tip I gave on Chat With Women?  It is well worth repeating and elaborate a little.

"Eat like a King in the morning, a Prince at noon, and a Pauper at night."

Eating a good breakfast is important for blood sugar regulation, adrenal health and immune system health.  You�ve just woke up from fasting for 8 hours and your body needs nourishment.  Have some protein, carbs and fats for breakfast.  Give your body some good calories, vitamins, minerals and take your supplements at this time too.

Eating a good lunch is also important since you have half of the day left.  A good salad, soup or healthy sandwich is a good idea at this time.  

Have a small afternoon snack around 3 or 4 pm to combat the afternoon blues.  An apple, some nuts and water!!

Have a small dinner.  We, in this society, focus on dinner as a main meal of the day.  The problem is  your digestive system would like to slow down at that time of day and here we are revving it up with a big meal.  You can have your chicken, fish, beef, salad, veges or whatever you usually have just eat about half the size you usually eat.  

Then for some people I recommend a snack before bed to keep their blood sugar stable while they sleep.  This would be something like toast with peanut butter or other nut butter.  

You will actually sleep better if you eat this way because your body will be able to slow down more at night.  It may take awhile to adjust to this but give it a try!
