As health and fitness instructors we often get asked “How much should I eat to lose weight?”
Unfortunately there is no simple answer as each person’s energy needs are different. What we can tell you is to eat smaller meals more often, every 2-3 hours starting with breakfast.
A healthy breakfast will get your metabolism revving and eating every 2-3 hours will keep it revving throughout the day.
Each small meal should consist of a serve of protein (eg. Nuts, lean red meat, chicken, fish) and low GI carbs (eg. Fruits or vegetables, brown rice, oats).
Aim for 5-6 small meals a day instead of 3 large meals, and give your metabolism a boost!
