What food/health maxims do you follow (eg, no eating after 7)?

  • Most of mine are pretty recent and just based on articles I've seen. Lately my rules are:

    No fruit after 2:00
    No high gi carbs after 5:00
    No eating after 7:00 (I usually go to bed around 10).
    No dairy (this is a new one and I don't really know how effective it is, but I'm trying it out)
    Protein at every meal/snack
    At least 7 hours sleep.

    I do try to follow not eating after 7 .. but it is kind of hard if your working hard till sundown and you come in starving. I also follow no high carbs after 5 so I try not to have carbs for dinner and just take them in for breakfast and lunch.

      I think if I am up working.. physically working and active then yes I can eat later.. but not right up till bedtime.

      You're right. The key is not to eat right up until bedtime. Have a few hours without eating. It's just easier to tell people to stop eating at 7, I think. Thanks!

    How come no fruit after 2? Just interested in what info is behind that....

      Basically the fruit is recognized as a sugar so its harder to burn it off when most people slow down after 2. I have actually heard no fruit after 4 but their are apparently variations to every rule.

    1) No sugar (and that includes products with added sugar, and artificial sweeteners).
    1a) Sugar is allowed after working out or while working out. And only then!

    :D at least 7 hours of sleep. Most carbs early in the day, no food past 8pm. Hardly any cows milk (don't understand why we drink that in the first place). Protein at every meal!
