A Guide To Meal Timing – The Secret to Being Lean, Healthy, and Happy!

The secret to being lean, healthy, and happy is all in the timing. We’ve all heard of breakfast being the most important meal of the day, but did you know there are other crucial times during your day when you should be eating? And how about exercise? When should you fit that into your schedule? This guide will show you exactly how to set your meal timing and snacks so that they work with your body rather than against it.

The Three Crucial Minutes Before Eating

The three minutes before you eat are critical to digestion and the absorption of nutrients.

The first thing you should do is drink a glass of water. This will help get your body ready for food and also make sure that you don’t overeat.

You should then eat a light snack about 15 minutes before eating your meal – this will help fill up your stomach and make it less likely that you’ll overindulge at dinner time.

Finally, avoid coffee, alcohol, or cigarettes in the three minutes before eating, as they can slow down digestion.

What to Do During the Ten Hours Between Meals

We are all familiar with the rules of healthy eating. Eat whole foods, avoid processed foods, eat more veggies and fewer carbs and fats, exercise regularly, and drink lots of water. These rules are important to living a long healthy life, but there is one rule that most people don’t realize they are breaking:

Eat when you’re hungry.

Many of us go through our days eating on a regular schedule regardless of whether we feel hungry. We grab fast food because it’s cheap and convenient or order in because we don’t want to cook after work or school. The problem with this type of eating is that it trains your body to expect food every few hours, even when you aren’t hungry! This can lead to overeating as well as weight gain from snacking between meals (which most people do).

Ease your body’s digestion by eating warm foods, and aid your detoxification by eating fermented foods.

  • It is important to eat warm foods, as your digestive system works best when the food you are eating is at body temperature. In fact, your body can begin digesting foods as soon as they enter your mouth.
  • If you want to aid your detoxification process and help your body eliminate harmful toxins, then add fermented foods such as kombucha tea or sauerkraut into your diet. Fermented foods are rich in probiotics that promote the growth of good bacteria in our bodies while also helping us to get rid of bad bacteria (which causes bloating).


In the end, there is no hard and fast rule on meal timing. But by following these guidelines, you can help your body digest food easily and regularly detoxify so that it stays healthy and strong.
