Menu Planner: Daily Schedule

As previously posted, keeping a food diary is essential to weight management. Using the menu planner sample, you can track what you eat for all your meals and snacks. But what's a good schedule to be on to space your meals and snacks out evenly? The last thing you want to do is get hungry, and also, you want to ensure that you get the nutrients and calories you need every day.

I found this schedule on the Internets, and it's great. It's actually written for avoiding fatigue associated with menopause, but it works just as well for dieting.

No, this is not the whole schedule. You have to click on the link!
It focuses on all the things you should be doing for health, regardless of weight loss: drinking a lot of water, incorporating fiber and protein into meals and snacks, making time for exercise, and, finally, bedding down to a restful sleep. Good stuff. One word of caution: this appears to be from a British site, so you'll be having lunch at 13:00, your next snack at 15:00, and etc. Yeah, I thought I was hallucinating when I noticed that, too. So, fyi, 13:00 is 1 pm, 15:00 is 3 pm, and so forth.  Click here, to go to the wiki for converting those confusing clusters of numbers--what we here in America call "military time" and the rest of the planet calls the 24-hr clock--to simple am and pm.
