Eat for All-Day Energy
When mid-afternoon approaches, you should try to eat another snack. Bananas are a great snack because they are loaded with potassium which reduces belly bloat and raises your blood sugar just enough to get you past the 3 p.m. slump. This will also increase your metabolism and keep you feeling satiated until dinner.
Many people also enjoy working out at the gym or going for a short walk before dinner. This will give you the energy you need until your final meal of the day.
Dinner should be relatively small as your body will still be processing the protein and fiber-packed foods you've been enjoying all day. Try eating a broth-based soup and a steamed veggie salad. Steaming or sauteing squash, cauliflower and zucchini in some light olive oil can be such a treat when added to a salad.
