Yes there are some people who need 3 meals and 2 snacks a day. These people would benefit from knowing which foods would not sit and accumulate on their hips or in their middles.
The food that matches your genetics is the key
Starting on this at age 46, and having the satisfaction of feeling better, and having my colon work effectively was the impetus to keep going.
12 years later, as I keep fine tuning. My best foods helped me feel full, and kept my colon working effectively. These (I listen to my body) are the things I can not live without, that I include every day or every other day as part of my diet. Fine tuning with the help of the Eat Right 4 Your Type book I used it as a reference, till I had my best foods memorized.
I USED TO BE STICK– person working to maintain my best weight and health. I made fun of my mother; my husband makes fun of me, and the kids make fun of both of us. I thought I knew everything at 20… AT 45-55 it is another story.

I eat far more than my husband, and he may be the Mediterranean eater. 3 meals per day, no snacks, and about 20% protein, and the rest low glycemic and high fiber vegetables and fruits. I am 3 meals per day and 2 snacks, with 30% protein. Fine tuning and pinpointing my most effective protein sources help me stay as close as I can to the restricted calorie food premise. The intake of highly nutrient dense foods, and combining them effectively, helps so I can maintain my best weight, and best energy. I highly recommend THIS Knowing what your body needs will help you fine tune your eating too.
Learning which substitutions for nutrition based on your genetics, can help your colon health. Making sure to eat a complete or nearly complete variety of vitamins and adaptogens and nutrients every day, and almost every meal, will help keep your energy lifted. Each meal has to complement the next.
It is almost a knowing of what your body needs next that will keep it running smoothly. Packing in the protein, or the sugars, will throw you off balance, and not create the “well balanced” running machine you need through middle age.
Certain nutrients are mandatory, like quercetins found in onions, and apples, and sulforaphanes found in broccoli. I have a great recipe with onions For Blood Type A and Blood Type O HERE
Knowing I have disinhibition when eating, shows it’s problem, when the children are here, and the family is together for holidays. The food is tempting, and looks so good, it is hard to maintain control, and resist. Yes it is a challenge. Something we must consciously guard against.
