Inverted Triangle Law of Food
We usually have food based on the products available at home, time available and place where we are. If it is in the morning, we usually are in a hurry and we hardly remember what we had. Especially women skip their breakfast in making their kids eat, serve and pack food and due to other usual day to day work. So it is never uniform and keeps fluctuating. It is always necessary to have a balanced food also at the right time of the day. In this article I am sharing all such details so that if not all we can follow at least a few.
The inverted triangle shows the quantity of food that has to be taken from morning till evening.
Just imagine the wide triangle base which forms our breakfast menu. Our tummy is as open as the wide triangle base, after a long gap of 10 hours. It is very essential to hydrate our body by drinking heaps of water before we actually consume solid food. Many of us do not do it. Drink at least ½- 1 litre of water and give a gap, then take your breakfast.
Time – Finish your breakfast before 10 am.
Quantity – Eat a good amount of food that includes fruits and fresh juice as well. Also take considerable time to finish your breakfast. Do no thrust in the food and run away. This is not going to help you in anyway. Make sure you give at least 4 hours break between each meal.
You can have a healthy lunch and compare the lunch to the mid part of a triangle. Our tummy shrinks a bit after filling a part of it with breakfast. Again hydration is very essential. Be it any time of the day keep drinking lots of fluid.
Quantity – How much ever you take your breakfast, lunch should be just 2/3rd of the quantity of your breakfast. We usually have a small breakfast, so please do not compare it with it. Have a good breakfast and then do this comparison. Make sure you add veggies and sprouts to your lunch.
Though this is not in the chart we make sure we take a snacks break these days!!!! Just keep it simple with Tea/Coffee/Juice and just nuts, dates, raisins. Do not end up eating all these puffs, cakes and aerated drinks. They just satisfy your tongue and not your body. This is just to balance the long gap between lunch and dinner and thus not a meal as such.
Again making a comparison with the triangle, you can have just half of what you had for your breakfast. We come from work, relax and this is when we get time to relish our food. So we don’t have any limits and end up having too much food which is absolutely bad for our health.
Time – Finish you dinner before 8 pm.
Quantity – You can keep your dinner as simple as just milk and fruits. Sleep with a light tummy to get proper sleep than having food that fills all parts of your body till your throat 😛 Also don’t forget to drink heaps of water. Make sure you have your dinner at least 2 hours before you go to bed.
Try having this diet for a period of 3 months and you can see major difference in your health, metabolism and energy levels.
