Day 10 5/14/14

May 15, 2014
A New Study Shows That We Naturally Crave Sweet and Salty High Calorie Foods At Night.

         The Main Point: 

“Our study suggests that because of the internal circadian regulation of appetite, we have a natural tendency to skip breakfast in favor of larger meals in the evening. This pattern of food intake across the day is exactly what Sumo wrestlers do to gain weight.” Read The Article In Full

The Lesson:

The cards are stacked against you but you can win with the hand you are dealt. If you play it right. Eat despite having a small appetite early in the day. By doing so hopefully you will have eaten enough calories through the day to be satisfied with a normal sized dinner. You’ll likely sleep better as well which will help you maintain a healthy body weight.

Let us know how it went on Day 10 in the comments!

      Try splitting that breakfast into breakfast and a snack combining carbs and Pro to both. Looks delicious though!

      Glad to hear it, it’s a little known fact in america that fat is a good thing when it’s used right.
