Since food is your body’s fuel, it makes sense that the best time to eat your biggest meal is a couple of hours before your most active time of day. For most people, morning is the ideal time to eat. Unfortunately, many people skip breakfast altogether and complete the majority of their daily activities while running on empty. As their blood sugar drops, they are vulnerable to the temptations of fattening foods. At the end of the day, they consume the majority of their daily calories as they settle in for the night. During the night, most of the calories they consumed are stored as fat, and they wake up the next morning with another empty tank. This eating pattern does bad things for their metabolism and blood sugar levels.
