Step Seven

Step 7: Revise Your Diet

  • Cut back on late-night snacks and heavy dinners. These may keep your metabolism working overtime. Some experts recommend taking your last food at least three hours before bedtime.
  • For lunch, trade the usual plate of pasta and glass of Cabernet for a lighter, high-protein lunch. This will ease early afternoon drowsiness, and you won't be as tempted to take an afternoon nap.

Chocolate and sweets create an imbalance of high- and low-blood sugar levels. Trim the consumption of these as well.
