Chrono Diet – Chrono Nutrition for Metabolic Balance

Chrono Diet
By using this method, you can achieve better absorption and digestion of the nutrients

You need the most energy in the early part of the day. This is because, during this time there is an increase in the secretion of insulin. The food you eat early in the day will be used for energy without being converted into fat reserves.

Chrononutrition is the medical diet method that balances the natural metabolic rate of hormone secretion and enzymes with the consumption of the various food groups. Using this method will allow you to better absorb and digest nutrients. It will also make it easier to regulate body temperature and improve your overall health. There are basic rules that relate to the consumption of the specific macronutrients you should be eating at certain parts of the day. The right choice of foods throughout the day will increase serotonin levels which will cut the desire for sweets in the afternoon hours.

Late afternoon (dinner) – meat, fish, egg, dairy products and dairy products substitutes, green leafy vegetables.

Chrono Diet
Best choice is fruits and cereals for breakfast

You need the most energy in the early part of the day. This is because during this time of the day there is an increase in the secretion of insulin.  The food you eat early in the day will be used for energy without being converted into fat reserves. So, in the morning, carbs found in fruits and cereals would make for great breakfast items. At lunch time, try adding vegetables and legumes to your diet.

Later in the day, it is recommended to eat foods rich in proteins like dairy products, fish, meat, and eggs. These give building blocks or amino acids to the body which are necessary for building and repairing tissues. In addition, this food stimulates the growth hormone which aids in the body’s ability to burn fat.

An example of meals according to the chrono-nutrition:

Morning (breakfast) – cereals, fresh fruits

Early afternoon (lunch, snack) – cereal products, legumes, vegetables rich in starch and fruits low in starch.

Late afternoon (dinner) – meat, fish, egg, dairy products and dairy product substitutes, green leafy vegetables.

Try the chrononutrition diet and see how it helps your health and digestion!
