This is an excerpt from a little e-book called Weight Loss Protocol which you can download for free.
Rule 1: Never eat after dinner. This will turn on your body’s ability to burn fat throughout the night. Eating before bed slows down this natural rhythm.
Rule 2: Eat three meals a day. No snacking. Learn how to get more energy from the calories you take in. Teach your body to have energy to last for four to five hours after you eat. This, too, will increase fat burning naturally.
Rule 3: Do not eat large meals. Eat slowly and stop before you are stuffed. There is never a good excuse for eating to excess. Eat for now, not for later.
Rule 4: Eat a breakfast containing protein. This will fire up your metabolism for more fat-burning during the day.
