Today is Friday, May 9th
The topic or question of the day:
Working 9-5 and routine eating
Routine is usually the best way for top performance when it comes to your health. Most bodies that are fed on a schedule simply function better. Working 9-5 or specific hours, places your breakfast meal in a limited timeframe while lunch is usually taken around noontime. Most people need a little afternoon “lift” before their dinner meal. It is best to try not to eat anything after dinner unless your dinner is early evening and you go to bed late. The commercials are usually what entice people to eat at night whether they are hungry or not.
The problem I often see with “routine” is that many people get bored with it. However, your body runs better when it is daily fed foods that agree with it and roughly the same amounts, at the same time. I know a man in his nineties who has been eating on a schedule for many, many years. His breakfast and lunch are always the same. He usually eats some nuts in the afternoon with a cup of black coffee and his dinner encompasses the same types and amounts of food, the food just varies. He has diabetes and his blood sugar is always controlled.
To those of us who whine and complain about being bored, I think back to the grumblings of the Israelites out in the wilderness wanderings who were miraculously fed Manna day in and day out. As the groaned of missing the exotic foods of Egypt, they were given a rainstorm of quail until they vomited it out their nostrils. Lately, I have become more grateful and thankful every time I am graced to eat something delicious and am careful not to complain.
