Limit Complex Carbohydrates and Processed Carbohydrates in Your Evening Meal

Limit Complex Carbohydrates and Processed Carbohydrates in Your Evening Meal- Complex Carbohydrates are the foods that give you sustained energy to get through the day.  Examples of complex carbohydrates and processed carbohydrates are potatoes, pasta, rice, bread, quinoa, oatmeal, pancakes, cereals, beans and risotto.  Your body needs this type of fuel in the morning and afternoon in appropriate portions to give you energy to get through the day.  If you have a medium to large serving of carbohydrates in your evening meal, you usually will not burn it off before going to sleep and it will end up turning into body fat around your belly.  To maximize your fat burning your evening meals should be loaded with vegetables, especially green vegetables (spinach, broccoli, asparagus, kale, collared greens, romaine lettuce, asparagus etc.) and lean cuts of meat or other vegetarian sources of protein.  Be careful not to sabotage your fat burning with an evening bowl of cereal or bowl of pasta.

  1. Cut off the carbs when you’re done exercising. Here’s the deal with carbs… your body needs carbohydrates as a fuel source, so when you’re done exercising for the day, cut back on the carbs. Try to eat the majority of your carbs for breakfast and lunch. Have a moderate amount with dinner unless you exercise in the evening. For example, have a whole-wheat cereal for breakfast; some brown rice with lunch; a sweet potato for dinner. After you go for your post-dinner walk, stop eating carbs. You don’t need any more fuel for the evening. If you have excess carbs in your system, the excess energy will more likely be stored as fat.
