Liz Fitness Nutrition for the daytime dieter/nighttime binger

You decide you are going to start a healthy eating plan, on Monday. The whole weekend you ‘let yourself go’, knowing that you are going to ‘start on Monday’. Monday comes, you do really well for the first part of the day, but you have a horrible headache and you are really sluggish. You stick it out, snacking on your carrot sticks and celery. By the time you get home, you are famished. Even though you know you should make a salad, you decide to have a little bite of your kids mac and cheese. The bite turns into a big bowl. Since you blew it already, you decide to have dessert too. You feel guilty, and decide to start again in the morning. You do great the next day, eating very few calories, are famished by the time you get home, and the same thing happens.

In this scenario, you are starving your body during the day, which slows your metabolism. Then at night, you gorge because you are so hungry, and your body is not using those calories, so you STORE them!! Right on your bootie or your belly. And until you kick this bad habit, you will continue to slow down your metabolism and store the extra calories as fat.
