Nutrient Timing and Why Consistency Matters

Not only is the food that we put into our bodies important, but the frequency in which we put that food in our bodies is just as important. There are two different ways we can time the intake of nutrients that go into our bodies. One of those ways is going to be by eating consistently throughout the day around the same time. The other way we can do it is through fasting. Both of these options can help us meet our goals, the big thing will be figuring out which one works best for you. This week I am going to go over how eating consistently can benefit us, and next week I will be going over how fasting can be beneficial to us. From there, then all you will need to do is find which works best for you and then you’ll be set!

When it comes to eating, we will find that our bodies work best when they know they are going to be getting fed. So being able to set up a schedule for eating each day is something that can become very beneficial to us. When our body knows that it is going to be getting nutrients around a certain time, it will make itself ready to receive those nutrients. It will also help prevent our bodies from holding onto unnecessary nutrients and storing nutrients for later use. Here is a more in depth look at how all of this helps us.
