For most of us who work during the week, how, what and when we eat on the weekends looks drastically different to the schedule we so robotically adhere to Monday through Friday. As much as the weekends are a time for relaxing and unwinding, we often let this philosophy spill over into our eating habits. Fried mozzarella sticks at happy hour on Friday night, Mrs. Field’s cookies at the mall on Saturday, and pancakes stacked to our eyebrows at Sunday brunch- those extra calories will be felt come Monday morning as we zip up our slacks. One of the ways to avoid this is to keep our eating schedule as consistent as we can both in time and in calories despite the day of the week. It may be challenging and it may take a few weekends of trial and error to play with this new system of eating, but hopefully you’ll find it will be well worth the effort.
