Meals I have known

The following photographs represent meals that approximate the ratios I describe in the nutrition drop down.  Those ratios like most things are variable.  For example, the complex carbohydrate ratio in most of these meals might be a little high for someone wanting to cut some weight or convert skinny fat into muscle mass.  Or, if you have high cholesterol you may want to consider less fat even though it’s good fat. As a general rule I consider complex carbohydrates the gas pedal of the waistline. Depending of course on the ratio of them in the meal. So take it with a grain of salt, unless you have high blood pressure. Nothing’s chiseled in stone and if it looks like too much food, eat half of it and save the rest for another small meal. But if the largest meal of the day is breakfast you can burn them during the day. As opposed to having the biggest meal at the end of the day and then you get to sleep on it. Play with the ratios and and the amounts and the times to see which works best for you. I read a study where people lost weight on the same amount of food by changing their meals to consume more earlier in the day. It reinforces what we’ve always heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
