One of our most basic needs, food can also be one of life’s greatest pleasures but what is the right balance to get the maximum nutritional value and enjoyment from our daily food intake?
Over the course of 24hrs our hunger and satiety levels ebb and flow – this daily cycle is synchronized by our body clocks.
In the morning we are most likely to be satisfied after a meal, get this right and you can reduce your total food intake for the day, whilst late at night food lacks the same satiating value which can result in a greater overall daily intake than we need.
Working with nutrition expert Monika Woolsey, we have created a 24hr guide to help ensure that the food choices you make at any hour, work in harmony with your body clock to maximise your day.
