12. Schedule your snacks
We've already covered the reasons why eating 5 times a day is an absolute must for all of us who want to lose weight fast and keep it off. What we also need to do is to make sure we snack on a schedule too! 5 time meal schedule means a good breakfast, lunch and dinner. And the other 2 meals are healthy snacks we need to have in between the big meals. To make it easier to remember when to have your snacks, schedule them 3 hours after breakfast and before lunch, and 3 hours after lunch, which would also be 3 hours before dinner. Eat at the same time every day and your body will know exactly when to expect its next meal. Hence, no unnecessary cravings, emotional eating, off-schedule snacking etc. which are just a few things that prevent us from successful and fast weight loss.
