Health Tip: Eat on Schedule
Don't lag on meal times
-- Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Eating the right foods is important for good health, but so is eating on a regular schedule.

The National Sleep Foundation suggests:

  • Eat breakfast shortly after you wake, even if you don't feel hungry. When you wake up, your body is low on energy and needs refueling. Opt for a protein-rich breakfast that includes whole grains.
  • Skip huge meals in favor of smaller, more frequent meals that keep your blood sugar level throughout the day. It takes a lot of energy to digest a big meal, which is why you feel tired afterward.
  • Drink plenty of water throughout the day, and watch caffeine consumption.
