The habit of skipping meals

I’m not going to be all mighty here and say that I never skip a meal.

If I’m not careful (or hungry enough), I may eat less than I should, mainly in the afternoons.

It happens when I get caught up with work or, for any reason, I don’t use the Pomodoro Technique.

When I have my breaks, I think about eating.

If I go to the kitchen to do the dishes, for example, I grab at least a snack.

And of course, if my stomach starts growling, it’s time to grab some food.

However, while it can happen, I don’t have the habit of skipping meals.

Usually, I have 5 meals a day, sometimes, 6.

But there are those people who have a different, unhealthy and unsafe, approach.

Your meals are your productivity partners

We need energy to get work done.

That’s why recovery plays such an essential role in our challenge.

But so does fueling our body.

And that’s where nutrition comes to play.

It isn’t about how much you eat, but what and at what times.

You may hear about people who eat little but perform at their peaks.

I’m not going to say it’s impossible. Still, it isn’t advisable.

It’s wiser to eat all your meals if you want to do everything you need without compromising your well-being.

Adding meals to your routine

An easy solution for not skipping breakfast, for instance, is waking up on time.

You can, and should, prepare as many ingredients as possible beforehand.

Yet, it’s also necessary that you allow yourself time to eat.

Stay away from the temptation of hitting the snooze button.

When setting the alarm clock the night before, take into consideration the time you’ll need to eat.

When it comes to lunch and dinner, how about starting with some meal planning?

If you get organized in advance, you can save money on the groceries and time by cooking in bulk.

And don’t underestimate the power of your mid-afternoon snack.

Make sure you stay away from sugary carbs.

Opt for protein sources that won’t crush you just after your meal is done.

Developing a new habit

There’s no better way to overcome a bad habit than substituting it for a good one.

Don’t hesitate to add reminders to your calendar if you have to.

While I’m not exactly a supporter of notifications, these are beneficial ones.

Also, don’t overcomplicate things.

A balanced and varied meal doesn’t have to fancy.

All you need is a colorful plate containing:

  • 2 portions of protein
  • one portion of carbs
  • one portion of healthy fats

Play around with your favorite ingredients, and you won’t forget to eat ever again.

Finally, remember why you’re doing it.

Avoiding skipping meals is good for your health, well-being, AND productivity.
