Stopping Late Night Snacking to Lose Fat

I sat down with a client the other day who is trying to lose over 30 pounds.

The conversation went something like this.

“Sam, I just don’t know what to do – I eat egg whites for breakfast, a salad for lunch, some fish or chicken for dinner with veggies, and that’s it.”

“That’s it,” I said inquisitively since the scale hadn’t moved too much.

“YES, that is IT…well, sometimes I have a snack after dinner.”

“A snack – what does that mean?”

“Well, if I’m watching TV it can be some chips or ice cream.

But not a lot.

I don’t eat a lot of sweets.

But I need something sweet or salty after dinner.

Should I not eat at night..?”

Protein Bars – Which One is Good?

Which protein bar do you recommend Dr. Sam?

This is one of the questions that keeps coming up?

So I thought I just share with you an email I got from one of my clients about the subject.

Client: What Kind of Protein Bar do you recommend for breakfast Dr. Sam?

Me: I don’t recommend any protein bars especially if you are trying to lose body fat.

Client: But don’t have time in the morning

Me: Get up 10 minutes earlier.

Client: But I only get 5 hours of sleep.

Me: Try to get at least 6-8 hours of sleep. If yo can only get 5 hours then there wouldn’t be much of a difference between 4:50 minutes and 5 hours.

Client: Thanks Dr. Sam

***************************************************************************************
OK,

Sam here. Most protein bars are just glorified, expensive candy bars. I remember when they first came on the scene.

When I looked at their nutritional information they don’t look too bad.

One of them even tasted just like a Snickers bar.

I should have known better because my mom always thought me “If it looks like a duck, quacks like then it’s a duck”

Sure enough when I had my clients try it they stopped losing fat.

What gives????

Then a independent study came out and showed that NON of the so called protein bar’s nutritional label was even close to being correct.

It indicated that they are in fact a glorified, expensive candy bar.

Before I forget I can’t tell you how important it is to have a good breakfast. Eating a healthy breakfast is proven to help you with your fat loss goals.

Remember to eat like a KING for breakfast and like a PEASANT for dinner and not the other way around like most people.
