How many times have you heard that no foods are bad foods, but you just need to eat them in moderation? Dr. Oz suggests that studies show that there is more to healthy living than eating in moderation, but there is actually a right time to eat the right foods.
The best time to eat:
“It’s 5 o’clock somewhere” there is some wisdom in this justification for drinking at 5 pm. More than a glass of alcohol is a depressant, but one glass is actually a stimulant and can keep you up if you drink too close to your bedtime. Aim for at least a 4 hour window before bedtime to avoid sleep disruptions. There’s a difference between a alcohol induced coma and a restful sleep. When we consume alcohol we actually disrupt our REM sleep which is where we dream and get the most restful sleep. So it may seem like your pre-sleep bottle of wine helps you hit the hay faster, but in actuality it will make you wake up earlier and more periodically.
Now that you know the best time to eat these foods this does not mean you should pile up the donuts in the morning and guzzle down a 6 pack of soda after lunch. If you are going to eat these foods you now know when to do so. Remember to always keep portions in mind, and always always drink plenty of water throughout the entire day.
