Many of us were raised with the notion that you eat breakfast at seven am. Lunch at noon. And dinner at six. Eating by the wall clock rather than by our body’s own internal clock can interfere with our health and wellness goals. If you find yourself eating by the clock, check in with your hunger and fullness signals to see if, in fact, you are hungry. If you are, then eat! If you are not hungry, then do something else and wait until you are hungry. If you are with other people and they are eating, have cup of tea or sparkling water, enjoy the company without the mindless excess food you would be consuming that your body doesn’t want. Practice eating in accordance with your biological clock. See if you can break the “eating by the clock” habit.
Tick, Tock. Tick, Tock. Time to Forget the Clock.
