Wellness with Waldy 5/28

Sometimes we are all super busy; however, that does NOT mean we are busy enough to skip lunch. If you’re trying to lose weight, it could especially hurt your waistline.

According to a study in International Journal of Obesity, those who ate lunch before 3 p.m. lost about 5 pounds more over the course of five months than those who ate after 3 p.m. The study showed that both groups had similar calorie intake, exercise habits, and sleeping habits. Eating so late may mess with your metabolism. If you’re strapped for time, try snacking on something energizing like a peanut butter and banana sandwich or oatmeal.
