Does the time of day matter when choosing what food to eat?
Are breakfast foods only for the morning? How do feel about a nice steak breakfast?
It's said to be better to eat heavier in the morning and lighter in the evening. Steak, hold the eggs, sounds great in the morning. Eating food that requires more digestion while you're active makes much better sense than eating them shortly before going to sleep.
the catagory of breakfast is cultural,... in the ozark hills 125 yrs ago,.. fried chicken was common fir beakfast,... eat what you like, just bear in mind that heavy rich foods when eaten at bed time or shortly before are not digested in the same way as other meals,... the body will store the energy,... meaning it will land upon your gut/butt etc.
I don't think it matters too much beyond I don't like to have a big breakfast unless it's almost already lunch. But otherwise, I can eat whatever whenever.
I like to eat what I feel like having , sometimes have steak & eggs , left over chinese ! Decided as an adult I should have what I want if I have it here , usually have egg on toast , bacon -egg on weekend , having it in a few hours for breakfast today !
Yep - I eat anything in the morning - steak, chips, salad, rice, a baguette with cheese or even a breakfast meal and I'm fine for the rest of the day!
I think it is the breaking of the fast that matters, not what we eat in the morning but it all depends on the individuals.
It depends on someones appitite in the morning. My husband can eat any thing at any time, but for me in the morning I can't eat steak or meat, I can eat a toasted cheese sandwich or a peanuts butter sandwich with coffee or tea. CWanamaker; I like your questions
Yes, for me as a diabetic the moment of the day becomes a factor. Maybe that is a contradicting statement. The breakfast theme triggered that many times for dinner I have eggs and ham/bacon from a fast food place. The reason being my blood sugar level is too high, I'm hungry and I need to eat because it is my dinner break at work. So, I can't have carbs - protein is the answer.
personally I believe, no carbs after 7pm as they just turn to fat if you are not active after eating them
I start the day with eggs toast and tea
Yes. I have a damn hard time choosing which food to eat when there is no food to eat, I'm asleep, or not hungry.
As Nolapete suggested, the rule of thumb is: heavier in the morning, lighter later in the day (although it depends on your apatite, as some ppl don't prefer heavier meals in the morning.. so a "brunch" maybe a better choice for them)..
Also carbohydrates are better avoided by the end of the day.. they give you a burst of quick energy, which may make it hard for you to sleep, and they, eventually, turn into fat while you are asleep
Absolutely not! Sometimes, I am so hungry when I wake up that normal 'breakfast foods' just won't cut it. I think what you eat during the day just depends on how hungry you are at the time!
I think that it is better if you avoid too much sugar or fat in the morning. Your organs are still slowly active from your sleep. It's better to consume only liquid meals or small breakfast to avoid beginning the work for your liver and other organs too early after you woke up. You may want to wait at lunch time before eating too much protein to avoid feeling tired or depressed at the end of the day. It's important to follow the right nutrition to grow taller. Ok, once you follow these easy tips you will notice a big difference in how healthy you feel throughout the day.
I've been known to have pizza, steak, chinese and seafood first thing in the morning....I'm not much of a tradition breakfast person..so I pretty much eat whatever I'm in the mood for. Now that my son is off and married it's fun to eat what I want, whenever I want it..with no worries about setting a bad example!
