if a child came to you asking for the key for happiness, what would be your first answer ?
Doing what you love. The people who do what they love are often the happiest people! Find your hobby/interest which you love and makes you happy and then you will feel happier!
But also surrounding yourself with people who love you are a key to happiness!
Last one, Damon or Stephan ?
I havent watched Vampire Diaries in AGES... so i dont really know what is happening in the series anymore. (In summer i think i am going to catch up!) but i think Stephan :):) Though i prefer Damon, hahah!
I was wondering how you stopped counting calories and stopped following your plan?
I have 2 posts which might help you:
And with my meal plan... well i hated having a meal plan and whenever i was at home i would eat differently. I stopped following my meal plan as soon as i became a day patient in 2011 (after my last inpatient stay). I said i followed my meal plan, but i ate differently because i have always hated when people tell me what i should eat. Though at first i ate too little because i didnt fully trust my body but eventually i began to trust my body and eat more intuitivaly. But i would suggest you begin with changing one snack to something different and more intuitive... and also if you weigh/Measure food you begin with not weighing/measuring. Overtime you begin to listen to your hunger and fullness feelings - so if you're hungry you eat and if you're full you stop.
Is it true that eating 5 times a day is good for the metabolism?
As far as i know it doesnt make so much difference if you eat 6 small meals a day or 3-4 big ones. However if you eat more frequently your blood sugar wont drop and your digestive system will always be working. But i dont think it matters so much if you eat 4 bigger meals or 6 smaller ones...
No. Your body doesnt know time... for example if you eat 1000kcal from 8am-6pm, and you still need to eat 1000kcal before you go to bed. You wont gain weight just because you eat those 1000kcal at night... its about calories in vs. calories out. Your body needs a certain amount of energy everyday, whether you eat them all before 12pm or eat them all from 8pm to 10pm. But generally, eating your biggest meal right before you go to bed might not be the best thing because well, then your sleeping... you need the energy and fuel when you are awake and doing things. But you dont need to just eat salad or egg whites because it is after 6pm... Your body doesnt know if its night or day. But it is optimal to eat most energy throughout the day and morning so that you have energy during the day!
