Jake: Hey I’m Jake of Body by Jake with your nutrition tip of the day. I’m here with Dr. P – great to see you buddy. We are answering your most frequently asked questions. This is from Priscilla, “how many times a day should I eat?“.
Dr. P: Well you gotta eat – it’s so important. Our days are so busy, it’s so important you start your day with something. You gotta have a breakfast – it’s important at that point to fuel into lunch and then dinner.
What’s great are these little breaks. So snack mid-morning, a piece of fruit, something easy, quick, sustainable and simple. In the afternoon, a little longer bridge snack like a fruit and 12 almonds. So, breakfast, a snack, lunch, snack, perhaps even a late afternoon snack – I like a fruit only – and then dinner.
Get your meals in – six meals a day. Everything in moderation. Everything in moderation and most importantly it’s gotta be sustainable patterns.
Jake: Beautiful Dr. P.
