Eating a good dinner is just as important as eating a good breakfast or lunch. With most emphasis being laid on breakfast and snacking when it comes to weight loss, the last meal of the day is often neglected.

As the saying goes, “Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and dinner like pauper.” This, of course, only means that dinner should be a light meal but should be just as nutritious as the rest of your meals.

What makes dinner an important meal?

Dinner is an important meal because, being the last meal of the day; it is taken in a relaxed mood helping the body release healthy hormones. It fuels the body for the inactive sleep period ahead, so that the basic metabolic functions can be carried out as required, without disturbing the body’s hormone or sugar levels.

Why is a light dinner important?

When you have a very heavy dinner, your body goes through a fat hangover the next day. It overloads the body with fats and sugar As the activity levels are not as high when you sleep, these fats and sugars cannot be consumed as efficiently by the body. As a result the body slows down the next day, making you feel groggy and heavy.
