Nightmares from food is a symptom of trying to digest, usually fatty, foods. You have to eat the right foods, a proper snack before bed stabilizes blood sugar throughout the night preventing sluggishness in the morning and promotes weight loss just as eating smaller meals throughout the day is helpful towards controlling how much you eat as a whole by end of day, preventing binge eating evening meals.
I’m nearly 40, ever since I balanced my diet and ate foods in moderations, supplements and a very basic weight lift routine with arm curl bar, I feel fantastic, I wake up easier in the morning, good moods, energy levels, never get sick…etc. At times feel euphoric with occasional body buzz No wonder all those workout freaks on TV used to seem so happy all the time.
Quite the opposite as I previously mentioned. Weight gain isn’t on a 24 hour clock, it’s all about the caloric intake to burn ratio. Eating multiples of smaller meals throughout the day and just before bed and if necessary using shakes to replace no more than 2 of those meals that provide amino acids, vitamins…etc and of course you need some fat to reduce hunger. But that depends what you eat though, if you eat 8oz lean steak daily for example, you won’t need the protein shake but I personally rarely get that opportunity so I have to replace my breakfast and after lunch snack with a shake.
It is really true that you can wake up and feel like 16 again, that we really are what we eat. That change in habit and learning the best eating routine daily is what’s hard. After a while, I don’t ever crave junk like I used to, it never even crosses my mind nowadays.
