A nutrition expert shares her useful tips

Natalia Samoylenko is a famous nutritionist. She is sure that chaotic eating will never help you get a dream body. She recommends eating at least 5 times a day, which means you should have a meal every 2.5 or 3 hours. Besides, you can vary the foods you eat. And it’s very important to divide your day into 2 halves: before and after 3 p.m.

"You should always focus on 3 p.m, regardless of your daily schedule or wake-up time. It doesn’t matter whether you consider yourself an early riser or a night person," says Natalia.

She emphasizes that in the second half of the day, the speed of glycometabolism slows down. This means that after 3 p. m., it is advisable to exclude all carbohydrates from your diet.

What foods you shouldn’t eat after 3 p.m.

  • Our usual side dishes for dinner (porridge, rice, pasta)

  • Sweet foods (confectionery, fruits, dried fruits, honey, and jam)

  • Starchy vegetables (carrots, beets, yams, potatoes)

  • Bakery products

  • All products that might increase the level of insulin: red meat, milk, and sweet dairy products (yogurts, cheese pancakes, puddings)

Key reasons to avoid these foods after 3 p.m.

  • Сarbohydrates give us energy. We don’t always manage to burn this energy by the end of the day. As a result, we gain extra weight.

  • Carbohydrates cause fluid retention in the body. Eating too many carbs for dinner can lead to a puffy face in the morning.

  • High insulin foods block the production of somatotropiс hormone that regulates the fat-burning processes in your body.
