Following on from my post yesterday.
I think its important to tell you about some well know myths in regards to things that boost your metabolic rate that we have all be saying to ourselves for years.
Myth – you must eat smaller meals and often
Truth – it doesn’t matter when you eat you meals
Myth – You must eat breakfast to kick start your metabolism
Truth – Nope, there is no evidence to support this
Myth – Eating after 8pm slows your metabolism.
Why? The thermic effect of food. This means that your body burns calories breaking your food down. So if you eat 2000 in 5 meals or in 1 meal it will still use the same amount of energy breaking it down. It doesn’t matter what time of the day it is.
