So much green, love and health in a single spot 😍🥙🥗🌿💚 and with it comes a DINNER FOOD TIP --> EAT FOR WHAT YOU ARE ABOUT TO DO. This is our DINNER, which I usually eat within the two hours before bed. I prefer to eat my fatty protein at night: Salmon and/or cottage cheese (if you are not dairy free) work great 👍
Why fats before night? Do you ever wake up hungry in the middle of the night? 😒😋🥗 Well, not that this will completely solve the issue because but it will definitely help 😉
✅Fats digest slow. If you pair fats with a slow digesting protein then the food will digest even slower
❓Why would you want the food to digest slow before bed? Since you will not be getting any nutrition while you sleep, you want the food you eat before bed to be slow releasing to prevent night time catabolism. This way you will be having a constant flow of nutrients so your muscles will be fed when you are sleeping. Remember your body is repairing itself during sleep.
‼️Moreover, your carbohydrate needs are diminished when you're sleeping while fats becomes the primary fuel source as the intensity of exercise goes down. In fact, when you're sleeping you're burning almost exclusively fat for fuel. Therefore, feeding your body carbs prior to bed will increase the chance that the carbs are stored as opposed to being burned. And if carbs aren't burned, they're either stored as glycogen or as fat. BUT If you happen to have weight-trained (cardio doesn't count) in the last three or four hours prior to going to bed, then there's very little chance that the carbs you eat at this time will be converted to fat. That's because glycogen stores are low and will hog all the carbs, leaving none needing to be converted to fat 💪🏼Enjoy your dinner💪🏼 @fit_by_sacrifice @faithforfitmeals #flexiblediet #cleaneating #fitbysacrifice #healthyeating
